Former Lumber King Burns His Former Team as Renfrew Edges Pembroke 4-3 in Overtime

Tyler Tomasini sunk the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the battle of the Ottawa Valley Friday night as the Renfrew Wolves came back to edge the Kings 4-3 in overtime.  Tomasini had four points including the overtime winner as the Wolves battled back from a 3-1 second period deficit to defeat their regional rival.
Pratt Stetson, Ryan McNally and Matt Yaeger scored for the Kings who were outshot 46-29 in the game.  The Kings were 1 for 5 on the powerplay, while Renfrew's lone goal with the man advantage came in overtime after Yaeger was penalized for tripping.
Before the game, the Kings announced they had traded defenceman Nick Foster to the Brockville Braves for 20 year old defenceman Matt Harvey and 16 year old prospect Landon Wright. The Kings are home to the Kemptville 73's on Sunday, November 27th for a 7 p.m. face-off.

Lumber Kings To Honour 1972-'73 Team That Smashed League Records

The 1972-'73 Pembroke Lumber Kings were a special team.  They rarely lost a game and made it to the Centennial Cup Final before finally losing their national Junior A championship series to the Portage La Prairie Terriers in a series that was played entirely in Western Canada.  Led by team captain Steve Croucher, who had a 134 point season, the Kings lost only 4 games all year as they cruised to a league title.  They then won three Centennial Cup series to make it to the national final.

 

The 1972-'73 Lumber Kings will be honoured on Sunday, December 4th with a special pre-game ceremony before the current Kings squad takes on the Ottawa Junior Senators.  Several players who dressed for the Kings 50 years ago will take part in the ceremony as we mark this special anniversary of arguably the greatest Lumber Kings team assembled.
