As the dust settles on this Wednesday night in the OHL, here's where we stand in the Western Conference:
The Belleville Bulls and Kingston Frontenacs met tonight for the first time since their January 27th game that featured a line brawl and resulted in multiple suspensions. But on this night, it was Bulls sophomore Bryan Cameron that stole the show.
The Ontario Hockey League has suspended Kitchener Rangers forward Steve Downie eight games for jumping Guelph Storm winger Mike McLean, and subsequent gross misconduct. Downie will be eligible to return on Mar. 17.
It’s nice to be back home. Even though I was only gone for a few days, it seems I missed a lot. Probably because I was Internet-less. It makes me realize how dependant I am on things like email. Scary. And speaking of scary...
Five OHLers have plead guilty to charges of assault and battery as the result of an Oct. 4, 2006 incident involving a then 15-year-old girl in Saginaw, Mich.
It looks like the new Kingston Arena project will continue as planned, despite the recent hiccups. The Kingston Whig-Standard is reporting:
Mayor Harvey Rosen stopped a motion to kill the downtown arena in its tracks, ruling it out of order during a council meeting tonight. The decision means construction will continue on the downtown arena.
Sources had told me heading into the meeting the mayor may block the vote because this council is not allowed to undo any by-laws put in place by the previous council in its first year.
There were plenty of OHL connections to the NHL Trade Deadline Day deals.
While most of the fans attending Sunday's Saginaw Spirit/Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds game at The Dow Event Center in Saginaw went home happy, it may have given us another reason why almost all hockey fans say "Never put shootouts into the playoffs"
When people think of the Belleville Bulls and goaltending, the name Kevin Lalande usually comes to mind. But on Saturday night, it was Mike Murphy who was the star of the show in Saginaw.
Here's a story I've been eagerly anticipating -- the ongoing saga of the UHL's aptly named Danbury Trashers. Last season the Trashers made headlines when the team was suspended because of a fraud investigation. In addition, team owner James Galante still faces charges of racketeering, extortion and witness tampering.
Some storylines I will be following this weekend include:
-Friday night's Sault Ste. Marie at London game. The Greyhounds have been playing well lately, will a trip into the JLC be a gauge of where the Soo stands heading into the post-season?
Thursday night at the Peterborough Memorial Centre was not one of the most exciting game you will ever see in the Ontario Hockey League. But that was just fine for the visiting Kingston Frontenacs.
The Plymouth Whalers moved two points closer to winning another West Division Title thanks to a 4-0 road victory over the Saginaw Spirit Wednesday night.
