Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to this rookie Bearcat, Matt Gordon who is working hard but not rewarded statistically for his efforts. Last Saturday, he was when his goal gave the Bearcats a mid game lead before the Crushers came back to win in OT. He was a threat every shift, regardless with whom he skated.
He got his hockey start in the Pownal Minor Program through to the end of Peewee. In his second season with the Eastern Express Major Bantams, he showed his offensive flair scoring 28 goals and earning an Island All-Star selection. A family move saw him suit up with Guelph Gryphons Minor Midgets, picking up 29 points in 34 games. He was drafted the Kitchener Rangers (OHL) and played 5 games with that club in the 2017 – 2018 season, along with time spent back with the Gryphons, and with the Kitchener Dutchmen (GOJHL). He has a full skill set, and like all rookies, is finding his way in the MHL.
Thanks go out to all who got behind the various projects supported by the Bearcats. The organization appreciates it.
Friday, the Bearcats host the Divisional leading Yarmouth Mariner, 7:00 pm at the RECC.
Sunday, Truro is off to Berwick to face the Valley Wildcats (6:00 pm).
