While the Shawville Senior Pontiacs will have to wait for at least one more year before they hit the ice, local hockey fans still have an option to take in Senior A hockey in the Pontiac.
The Fort Coulonge Comets have taken up the mantle of the region and changed their name to the Pontiac Senior Comets ahead of the upcoming Outaouais Senior A Hockey League (OSAHL) season.
Although the fact that the Pontiac will only have one senior team instead of two will surely depress some hockey fans, having one team comes with several benefits.
It means that the Comets have a larger talent pool to draw from in the region. Instead of two teams fighting over the best hockey players in the area, the Comets will have their pick of the litter – ensuring a better product on the ice.
