Season-Ending Banquet Ends on a High Note


Thursday night the Essex 73's hosted its annual season-ending awards banquet at the Essex Legion. Much individual hardware was handed out but the sense of the room was that everyone would trade the individual accomplishments in for another shot at the Schmalz Cup.

Essex did announce some exciting news at the banquet. Tony Piroski will be returningas hed coach of the 73's for the 2024-25 season.

Piroski was brought in midway through this past season and helped guide the 73's to the Stobbs Division final where they lost in 7 games to the Lakeshore Canadiens. Piroski believes he has the team to make a run at Lakeshore again next year.

73's captain, Gabe Piccolo, was the big winner at the banquet hauling in three awards; Leading Scorer, Player of the Year and co-winner of the Playoff MVP award.

Congratulations all those who were recognized for their achievements this past season. Best of luck in your future endeavors to overagers Connor Dembinski, Liam Hall, Shane DePelsmaeker and Jake Fields.
