Miners Add Lentini, Soilis & Brassard

The Kirkland Lake GoldMiners have added a trio of newcomers to the roster, in defenseman Roberto Lentini #27 and forwards, Stavros Soilis, who wears #8 and Matt Brassard #10.

Lentini 2

98 born defenseman, Roberto Lentini joins us from the Vaughn Kings AAA Midget organization and also saw action in a handful of games for the Toronto Patriots of the OJHL. The 5′ 10″ 190 lb, left shooting dman, has acquitted himself quite well in training camp &  the preseason. Coach Lafleur hopes Roberto continues to make a smooth transition to the Jr. A  game.


Stavros Soilis joined the club during the Polar Bear Classic and scored his 1st as a GoldMiner, Saturday night against the Crunch. Stav was with the Alexandria Glens of CCHL2 and the Kanata Lasers of the CCHL last season, notching 16 goals & 30 pts in 38 games last season. In his 4th Junior hockey season, Stav has experienced the NOJHL, having suited up with both Powassan & Cochrane, 2 seasons ago. Coach Lafleur is looking for some veteran leadership & offensive punch from the speedy Montrealer.

Matt Brassard mini

Completing the trio of newcomers is Matthew Brassard, who joins us from the Toronto Red Wings AAA midgets of the GTHL. The speedster had a breakout year, last season, with 27 goals & 22 assists. Coach Lafleur says, Matt brings speed, quickness & an offensive touch to the Miners attack.

All three newcomers saw plenty of action lat weekend in Cochrane, at the Polar Bear Classic.
