The Smiths Falls Rideaus, a new team that has joined the Eastern Ontario Super Hockey League, will play their first two games this weekend, including a home game at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre.
The EOSHL was formed two years ago, and has expanded from four teams to 12. It is a senior league for players aged 20 and over, and includes some very experienced athletes, including some former NHL players.
The Rideaus’ first official game is set for Saturday, Sept. 25 in Ottawa against the Bytown Royals. The team’s first home game will take place at the community centre Sunday, Sept. 26 at 4:30 when they take on the West Carleton Rivermen.
