"I would like to thank the DaSilvas for reaching to me to be head coach of Tottenham Steam for the upcoming season. Our team will be represented both on and off the ice in the community. My career in NHL was for 14 years on teams California Golden Seals Cleveland Barons Washington Capitals Minnesota North Stars. I was a two time All Star 1978/82 and produced a 50 and 60 seasons with the Capitals. I have played internationally with Team Canada in World Championships over in Europe. I played nearly 900 games and recorded points just under that feat. It gives me great pleasure to work with the team to be their best and to further their hockey endeavours.

A few words from Jesse :
Playing professional hockey has always been a dream of mine and I am fortunate enough to have made it to where I am today. I've had a ton of support through my junior career. From my friends and family, to all those involved in hockey that have played a role in my success. Beginning with Jim Thompson and Marshall Uretsky for giving me a chance to play at the junior A level, to the town of Meaford, Almaguin and lastly Dina and the entire Tottenham Steam organization for getting me to where I am today and introducing me to the right people. Bob Russell and the GMHL have been great to me as well. I would like to say thank you to all my coaches, billets and teammates and best of luck to everyone in the future.

As per the official Finlandia website, Finlandia head coach Joe Burcar had this to say "Cale brings a winning attitude with him, he's played for champions at every level of his career. Cale knows what it takes to be successful and we feel that will catch on with his teammates."
Following his rookie season with the Steam, Markham went on to play in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL) this past season where he scored 19 Points (11G, 8A) while splitting time between the Chatham Maroons and the Lambton Shores Predators
Prior to joining the Steam the 1997 born Markham was a four-year varsity player at Houghton High School. As a senior, he scored 40 Points (19G, 20A) and earned all-conference and all-state honors. The Gremlins went a combined 83-17 in his time, capturing all four regional championships and twice reaching the Division 3 State championship final.
Cale was excited to recall his time in Tottenham, “From the moment I put on that Steam jersey I had a new family, my brothers and I went to war that season and brought home the Russell Cup. I couldn’t be happier with the way I was able to evolve as a player under Woody, and would like to thank everyone in Tottenham especially my billets Ryan and Lindsey and my billet brothers Ethan and Dylan for helping make my time so special.”
We were all witness to the type of player and person you were during your time with the Steam Cale and we would all like to wish you luck from all of us.
