Gone too soon, this past Tuesday we lost Dale Hawerchuck to cancer.
The very next day, Barrie Colts Head Equipment Manager, Clayton Johns left one of Dale’s sticks and flowers at the main entrance.

As I drove by and saw the flags lowered, a wave of emotion came over me. I can picture Dale Hawerchuck standing on the Colts bench behind the players, where he’s stood every game since 2010 and up until he began fighting cancer last year.
Flags are at half mast today at Sadlon arena, and flowers have been left outside the entrance in honour of long time Barrie Colts head coach Dale Hawerchuk who passed away Tuesday after a battle with stomach cancer #HawerchukStrong pic.twitter.com/2UPQvbJuOn
