The Bedford Barons are pleased to announce Jason Troini as their new Head Coach for the 2016-17 Hockey Season in the Nova Scotia Major Bantam Hockey League. Troini, a Montreal native, grew up playing his Minor Hockey in Quebec before being selected in the first round, sixth overall by the Mooseheads in the 1996 QMJHL Entry Draft.

Since 2005 Jason has also held several Scouting positions with the PEI Rocket and Bathurst Titan, and spent 2 seasons as an Assistant Coach with the Halifax Mooseheads. Jason stepped away from coaching hockey in 2013 to spend more time with his young new family, but is now ready to return to the coaching arena and the Barons Major Bantam Hockey Club are very proud to have him join our hockey family. “The interaction with the players is great, it is rewarding to watch young players succeed and I like the competition level because it’s something I’ve always enjoyed. It is about setting them up for success on the ice and in life.”

Ethan was a big part of the success for the Baron's this week. He scored in both of their games versus Cole Harbour on Wednesday and Halifax on Saturday. He converted on a in tight  2 on 1 play to put the Barons up 3-1 in the second period versus Cole Harbour and then he had the game tying goal versus the Hawks on Saturday with 5 minutes left to play. His physical play and relentless forechecking abilities continue to create space for both he and his line mates and it was nice to see him get rewarded on the score sheet. As the old saying goes "Hard work pays off". Way to go, Ethan. Congratulations on a great week. Read more at http://nsmbhl.goalline.ca/news.php?news_id=1270089#7cKms0J7crHqiGOu.99

Taylor Ewing Oct 19 - 25 NSMBHL Player of the Week

Taylor is the Captain for the Barons this season. The coaching staff is proud of the work ethic and attitude he demonstrated over this past weekend, and we would like to congratulate him on a successful offensive outbreak. He had a total of 7 points over the past two games and was a key contributor to the Baron's offence in our two home wins. Taylor had 2 goals and 3 assists in Saturday's game versus the Pictou County Weeks, and he followed up that performance with 2 assists in Sunday's match up versus the Joneljim Cougars. Taylor is an excellent role model for his peers on the team and he has been doing a great job at leading both on and off the ice this year. He has really committed to improving his play on the defensive side of the puck and he continues to find success offensively tallying 16 points (4G 12A) in his first 10 games of the season.

Coxy Bookends the Season with POW Selections

Coxhead finishes regular season in great form.   Coxhead has produced an impressive 12 points over the two games this past weekend! He scored 4 goals and had one assist in Saturday's game and then he went out on Sunday and scored another 4 goals and had three assists, which means he contributed to all 7 of the Barons goals that game. Whether or not he wins the scoring race, at least Andrew will know he did everything in his power to put himself in a position to win! Andrew was the first player to receive the award in week number one and now on the final weekend he finishes off the season with an incredible 12 point performance. As captain of the team, he has produced game in and game out and has gone above and beyond what the coaching staff has asked of him. His individual skill development has been outstanding over the past two years, and I know he will only continue to get better and work harder as he moves on into midget next year! Congratulations Andrew on a phenomenal season, your hard work and passion for the game continue to define your true colours both on and off the ice!

Kyle Sexton lead the way on Saturday with a hat trick and singles went to 7 other Barons. Several of the team also had multi point outings as the Mobil 1 Barons found their range early and often against the Crushers. Sunday was a different story with the Barons holding the balance of play for two periods but trailing 3-2 at the intermission. The Crushers came out strong in the third and built a 5-2 lead before the Barons answered back with 5 unanswered goals for a 7-5 victory. Never quit!  Go Barons!
