The release of the movie Straight Outta Compton this past weekend has rekindled the music of SWH's teen years.

Coach Gadowsky added Andrew Sturtz to this year's roster earlier this week. Sturtz is a native of Buffalo, New York and has spent the last two years scoring at will in the Central Canadian Hockey League with the Carleton Place Canadians.
