The Philadelphia Flyers have sent forward Steve Downie to their AHL affiliate the Philadelphia Phantoms.
My sister and I were watching The Daily Show the other day when they had a segment on in the influx of illegal immigrants -- mostly from Mexico -- crossing the border from the U.S. into Canada.
The NHL has suspended former Kitchener Rangers forward Steve Downie 20 games for his cheap hit on Ottawa forward Dean McAmmond on Tuesday during a pre-season game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Senators.
Just a few short OHL notes and some sad news today.
Canadian artist Ken Danby, who was well-known for his vignettes of Canadiana, died at age 67 while canoeing in Algonquin Park on Sunday.
I was checking out the two afternoon OHL games on today before heading off to work. It's already been a strange experience with the local feeds. Like everyone else, the TV broadcasters are trying to get back into the swing of things.
After leaving it to the last minute, I finally purchased my OHL Action Pak yesterday morning.
The OHL kicked off the 2007-08 season last night in Saginaw, Mi. – the home of very good brats and many car washes. Sadly for the Spirit they were on the losing end of a 7-5 decision to the Soo Greyhounds.
Former NHLer Jared Aulin is joining the Calgary Dinos of the CIS.
The Calgary native is pursuing a degree and plans to enter the Haskayne School of Business at the U of Calgary.
There's so much to talk about... this could be the longest OHL blog post ever. My apologies in advance, but there's a lot going on, so grab a coffee and settle in:
The OHL season finally starts tonight and it’s about time.
I’ll have to revisit this posting in late February, because that’s usually the time I start saying, “When – oh when -- will this season ever end!?”
With the OHL season a few days away, here are a handful of items to keep you busy. I, on the other hand, am super busy this week... so I’ll keep it short.
A number of NHL clubs have returned their prospects back to their junior teams today. Here are a few players heading back for another season in the OHL and a few former OHL notables who are moving on:
The Erie Otters continued to downsize their roster today by shipping forward Josh Vatri to the Kingston Frontenacs in exchange for a sixth round pick in the 2009 OHL draft.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have assigned six players back to their respective leagues and released two players from their training camp today.
Former Oshawa General Kevin Colley will be honoured by the Bridgeport Sound Tigers at their home opener on Oct. 12 against the Norfolk Admirals.
This warning is for all of you on the roads tomorrow in Mississauga. Be careful, Ottawa Senators goaltender Ray Emery will be in the area to take part in a "Meet the Majors" event at Mississauga City Hall.
Yesterday's blog about Plymouth's collection of Tyler Browns had some interesting feedback.
The Plymouth Whalers have announced they have signed Michigan native Tyler Brown today. Tyler Brown is not to be confused with Tyler Brown, who was also drafted by the Whalers in 2007.
There’s nothing quite as funny as having to work on Labour Day.
Of course it’s not really a humorous ha-ha, but more the “are you kidding me?” funny.
