Former Lakers Owners Buy GMHL Franchise
Joe Bryne, who coached the Lakers last season, will be at the helm of the Windsor Aces.
The Bryne-Laus Hockey Corporation owned the PJHL’s Wallaceburg Lakers for only one season, selling the Junior C team to a group of local investors in early April.
The GMHL is an independent Junior A hockey league. The most local franchises, who will be divisional rivals of the new franchise include the Kingsville Kings, London Lakers, Tillsonburg Hurricanes, St. George Ravens, and Niagara Whalers.
The Aces’ logo draws obvious comparisons to the Wallaceburg Lakers logo, borrowing several identical elements.
Although the GMHL has not officially announced the new Windsor Aces franchise or its ownership group, CKSN has received confirmation from multiple sources regarding wittnin the league and the Aces organization regarding their intention to field a GMHL team for 2017-2018.
