Vankleek Hill Cougars have new owners
The Vankleek Hill Cougars junior hockey team has a very proud set of new owners.
"We love the game," said Greg McEachern, Cougars assistant coach.
McEachern, General Manager Marc Berniqué, and Head Coach Franky Dopelhamer (see photo) took over June 1 as the official owners of the Vankleek Hill Cougars.
The three began negotiations with the club executive for purchase of the team several weeks ago after the end of the 2018-2019 NCJHL season.
One of the conditions in the agreement between the three and the VKH club executive was a guarantee that the Cougars would continue as part of the Vankleek Hill hockey scene for at least a five-year period.
