The Shawville Arena could soon be the place to be on a Friday night if Nick St-Laurent has his way.
St. Laurent, along with Fort Coulonge native Danick Boisvert, are trying to bring senior hockey to the Pontiac.
Senior hockey is high-level amateur hockey that is one avenue available to players who’ve finished their junior career and want to keep playing.
St-Laurent and Boisvert both spent time playing for the Shawville Junior Pontiacs in the early 2000s.
St. Laurent says the process is still in the planning phases but things are coming together quickly.
On April 29, Boisvert was in Fort Coulonge to announce that the community will be one of the teams in the proposed Outaouais Senior A Hockey League (OSAHL).
The Fort Coulonge team will take the name of the minor hockey association – The Comets. In Shawville, St-Laurent hopes to bring back the team name “Pontiacs.”
“It’s a staple in the community,” St-Laurent said.
