Around the G: September Preview

Summer sports wrapping up means it’s time to dust off the hockey gear (make sure it still fits) and hit the ice for another season. September marks a month of new beginnings in many aspects of life, including minor hockey. New season, new teammates, new coaches, and a new chance at glory. Here’s what’s happening around the G throughout the month of September.
