Joe Drago honoured by CJAHL
The Canadian Junior A Hockey League honoured Sudbury?s Joe Drago during its annual meeting last week in Halifax.
The former commissioner of the Northern Ontario Junior A Hockey League and former co-owner of the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League, was a recipient of an honourary membership with the CJAHL.
Drago was honoured alongside Frank McKinnon, retiring commissioner of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. Both men sat on the founding board of the CJAHL.
Drago spent 13 years as commissioner of the NOJHA.
?I have spent a great part of my life in junior hockey and I am delighted to remain part of this group,? he said.
Boxers to compete in Italy
Four boxers from the Ontario National Training Centre?s Top Glove Boxing Academy are preparing for a boxing competition in northern Italy?s Marche region next week.
Kyle Gauthier, Chris Paulins, Jamie Lea Pollock and Amber Konikow will all take part in this overseas trip to showcase their talent May 24-26.
This event follows up on last July?s boxing card held at the Caruso Club in Sudbury, in which a travelling team from Italy competed.
For Konikow, the trip will not only be a great life experience, but her first official amateur bout.
?In order for the Italian boxers to return to Sudbury, it was agreed that we had to send a team there to compete,? said Joey McColemen, marketing director for the ONTC.
Wolves want you
