2014/15 Schedule Released; Sept. 7 Home Opener
(Bradford, ON; July 29, 2014)
The Bradford Rattlers will be kicking off the 2014/15 Regular Season with a rematch of last year's Russell Cup Final. Another installment of the 'Battle of Bradford' will take place Sunday, September 7th when the Bulls visit the BWG.
The Rattlers were defeated four games to one in the Russell Cup Final last season, being denied a second straight championship. This will be a opportunity for payback against the Bulls.
This game will also mark the debut of club under new GM Sylvain Cloutier. Cloutier was brought in late in the off-season to replace the departing Johan Lundskog, who has received a high-level pro coaching position in Sweden.
Cloutier is a former NHL, with a successful 600 game AHL career.
A number of returning and rookie players will be in the line-up for opening night. With such a successful team last season, our club has advanced many players onto college and pro hockey clubs.
This year's Rattlers will be a new line-up, with new leadership but the same championship expectations.
