Breaking News: Alleged kidnapping incident investigated

LANTZ: There may not have been any games during the week for the East Hants Junior Penguins, but that doesn’t mean Head Coach Joel Isenor and his staff wasn’t working hard.
East Hants currently sits fourth in the Fred Fox Division, just a win back of first-place Sackville. The Pens record is 8-1-0 (wins-loss-shootout loss) for 16 points. Just two points separate the top four, with the Cole Harbour Colts another six points back in fifth place. The Brookfield Elks bring up the rear with just four points.
The Pens management were busy as they signed a free agent from the Glace Bay Miners, Colton Abraham. Abraham was the fifth overager with the Miners, who sit first in the Sid Rowe division.
Abraham, a 21-year-old defenceman from New Waterford, had recorded four goals and an assist in seven of the Miners’ 12 games, while picking up 30 games. He is reportedly set to work in the Halifax area with an apprenticeship in electrical, so the move to East Hants worked out well.
He was set to join his new club to make his Penguin debut on Nov. 7 when East Hants hosted Brookfield.
In a separate move, Isenor sent forward Justin Makary and Haiden Goltz, also a forward, to the Colts for the Colts’ 2015-2016 waiver pick (to be used by Dec. 2) and future considerations.
Makary had three goals and an assist in seven games with East Hants, while compiling 12 penalty minutes. Goltz had played in just two games with the Pens, registering an assist and two penalty minutes.
The Penguins are preparing for a busy upcoming schedule. After the Nov. 7 home game, they were to play in Windsor against the Valley Maple...
