The six-foot-two, 180-pound Good is entering his second junior season.

Ford, 26, finished the 2019-20 season with the SPHL Quad City Storm after completing his four-year career in NCAA Division III at Northland College. He did not play in 2020-21.
The Tillsonburg native played two-season games with the Maroons.

He was initially put on the Elks’ suspended list as he completed the necessary COVID-19 quarantine period before joining the team.
The Elks (2-5) are tied for last place in the West Division. Their next game will be on Friday October 8 in Winnipeg.
