continued CBA then nearly pulled off the biggest upset of the playoffs against top-seeded Saratoga in the semifinals. The Brothers held a 2-1 lead before the Blue Streaks scored the tying goal late in the third period. Saratoga went to notch the winning goal in overtime.
“We had a decent season, considering the (player) depth issues we had,” said Fraser. “We went 9-7 in the league, so that was good.”
Fraser said the team’s performance this season was attracting interest from area youth hockey players, and he was hoping to convince them to play at CBA. Now, Fraser said he wonders if those players will remain interested in playing for the purple and gold.
“I was all set to start recruiting. I knew where the bodies were,” said Fraser.
The task of recruiting new players to CBA will now fall on a yet-to-be-named coach, but Fraser said the timing of his dismissal will likely make it tough for the next person to put things together for 2012-13.
“There is a handoff to be done, there is scheduling to be done, (and) there is (player) evaluations to be written,” said Fraser.
As for Fraser, he’s hoping to continue coaching hockey locally.
“I stand on my season as a testament to how things went for me,” said Fraser.
