“The Elgin Middlesex Chiefs showed a strong and lasting commitment to U18 AAA (Midget) Hockey and to their community within their team hosting proposal.   It will be exciting to see the Chiefs compete for an ALLIANCE Hockey Championship and possibly a Telus Cup berth in the 2018-19 season,” quoted Ray Kosumovic, ALLIANCE Hockey U18 AAA (Midget) Chair.   Note: The Elgin Middlesex Chiefs last hosted a Midget AAA team in the 2005-06 Season.
