|FORMER NHLer DOLLAS AND PLAYERS FROM ST. LÉONARD ARCTIC JUNIORS TO VISIT LESTER B. PEARSON HIGH SCHOOL|
MONTREAL, FEBRUARY 20, 2015– Head coach Bobby Dollas and eight players from the St. Léonard Arctic of the AAA Quebec Junior Hockey League will visit Lester B. Pearson High School (11575 P.M. Favier) in Montreal North on Wednesday, February 25 (10:45 a.m.).
Dollas was a solid National Hockey League defenceman for 17 years and played for nine different teams - Winnipeg, Québec, Detroit, Anaheim, Edmonton, Pittsburgh, Calgary, Ottawa and San Jose. He and his players will face off in a friendly game of ball hockey in the school gym against a group of Lester B. Pearson High School Sports-Études students. Two of the Arctic players set to visit, Matthew Valente and Michael Fratangelo, are graduates of this program. Among the other EMSB grads attending are Michael Revelakis (Laurier Macdonald in St. Léonard), Adriano Leone (Vincent Massey Collegiate) and John Georgaros (LaurenHill Academy).
“Most of our students are now in CEGEP and studying really hard,” said Ms. Di Giovanni. “That is an important factor for us.”
