December 8, 2016 - he Major Atom boys played their first games of the season this weekend in Division 1 of the Chris Paulin Tournament in Ottawa.

Regardless, they were able to develop a degree of confidence that they carried in to their next games against the Gloucester Wolverines and Ottawa Shooting Stars. Winning both, they set up a semi-final game with a team from Gatineau. Close throughout, they team needed to foul towards the end to try and close the gap, but dropped the game.
