The Huron Perth Lakers dedicated the game in front of a record breaking audience to our Major Midget Program.  The Huron Perth Lakers took the opportunity to recognize the players, coaches, managers that have helped our program become what it is today during the opening ceremonies.

The Huron Perth Lakers board, entire membership and player alumni, added special recognition and a sincere thank you to Nick Aroutzidis who help  found the AAA Major Midget Program. Nick dedicated much of his time, care and resources over many years to ensure our Midget program under his management was successful from its inception.  Despite numerous challenges and obstacles of building a team each year Nick continued to find ways to create opportunities for many players to play hockey at the highest level. Today Nick remains a valuable resource for guidance and support toward our midget program…..   Nick Aroutzidis was presented a vintage framed Laker sweater to hang in his office on behalf of our entire Huron Perth Organization and Alumni.

Nick thank you for your commitment and dedication to our minor hockey AAA Midget Program. Your contribution to our Organization was and will continue to be greatly appreciated by players for many years to come!

Sincerely,

Mark Thibeault / President
