Head Coach Matt Turcotte said it was a good learning experience for himself in his first season behind the Winterhawks bench, but made expectations known going forward.
"This year was a bit of a learning curve, but I think there's only one vision now, and that's to go to the dance and win it all," said Turcotte. "That's my only goal for next year, to win it all."
Winterhawks President Gord Lamont told the crowd there will surely be changes coming to the WOAA Sr. Hockey League.
He explained the current system of using residency to determine player eligibility is likely to be replaced by a system using a player's past hockey experience.
Though the proposal won't be voted on until the league AGM in late June, Lamont explained teams would only be allowed a certain number of players who played professionally, for example.
More details will be shared once the new format is made official.
The 2019/20 schedule and season ticket information will be released later this summer.
