Lumber Kings Back on Ice for Summer Evaluation Camp

For the first time since the club experienced a crushing quadruple overtime loss in game seven of their Central Canada Hockey League quarter-final playoff series, the Kings were back on the ice, but this time there were plenty of new faces. The club's summer evaluation camp was held on June 10 and 11 at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior, one of the few arenas in the region that has ice during the summer months.

 

More than 45 players were in camp, including both returning and new players who were trying to leave a positive first impression with the club's coaching staff.  Over the summer, the team will start to take shape with select players invited to training camp in August, before the 2022-23 season begins in September. The league's schedule is expected to be released in mid-July.

 

 

Former Lumber King Shawn Allard Helps Colorado Win Stanley Cup

Shawn Allard never won a Central Canada Hockey League title when he played with the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the 1990's, but now he will have his name on the crown jewel of hockey-the Stanley Cup.  Allard hoisted the Cup following the Colorado Avalanche's game six win over the Tampa Bay Lighting in the NHL championship series as the club's skating coach.
Allard grew up in Petawawa as part of a large family where several of his brothers also played with the Lumber Kings during their respective junior careers.  He is the owner of Perfect Skating, an organization that helps children and youth become better skaters and hockey players.  In the 1992-93 season, Allard had 29 goals, 37 assists and 66 points in 57 games for the Kings.  Prior to joining the Avalanche, he held a similar coaching role with the Nashville Predators.
