Under the ownership of the father-son duo of Dr. Martin Beals and KB Beals, the Greater Sudbury Royals will be based out of the Capreol Community Arena.
The younger Beals, a Sudbury area businessman, said he and his dad want to bring “a level of much-needed entertainment to local hockey fans in the Capreol, Hanmer and Val Caron area.
“We believe the community will have a sense of pride and ownership in the Royals,” Beals added. “Community interaction is important to our agenda and we welcome local businesses and patrons to be a part of it.
“My dad and I would like to say that we are very happy to be part of the founding fathers of the CIHL with president Tim Clayden,” Beals continued.
The elder Beals will serve as president of the Royals and his son will be director of operations.
Meanwhile, the Royals have signed their first two players and both are area products with prior junior experience in the Greater Metro Hockey League. They are 1994 birth-year goalie Jake MacTaggart and 1995 birth-year forward Paul Recollet.
MacTaggart played three seasons of junior in the GMHL while the 6-foot-5, 220 pound Recollet — who answers to the nickname Little Bear — is coming off his first year in the junior ranks.
Mactaggart hails from Sudbury while Recollet is a native of Wahnapitae First Nation.
The Royals become the CIHL’s fourth Northern Ontario-based team joining the Espanola Rivermen, St. Charles Spirit and Sault Ste. Marie-based Batchewana Attack. Other members of the now eight team CIHL are: Central Ontario HTI Stars, Colborne Cramahe Hawks, Milton Battle Arts Cobras, Collingwood Ice.
