Monday's blog item about the Erie Otters hiring Robbie Ftorek as head coach brought in a few questions about the nature of his contract status with the team.
Former NHL and AHL coach Robbie Ftorek was unveiled as the new head coach of the Erie Otters this evening. He’s replacing Peter Sidorkiewicz as the new man behind the bench of the 3-12-0-0 Otters.
I've had a couple e-mails and heard some discussion around Sarnia about this so I figured it was time to set the record straight on how the video replay system works in the OHL.
After struggling to a 3-12 record to start the season, the Erie Otters have made a coaching change.
While I'm not one of those people who has been around the OHL for decades, I have put in a decent number of years around the league. Just when I thought I might have seen it all, I've seen something completely different.
There's a story by the Star's Kevin McGran today which has the Toronto Maple Leafs making a pitch for OHL superstar John Tavares.
According to many reports, John Tavares has been made an offer by the Toronto Maple Leafs...err...Marlies to sign directly with the AHL club for next season and beyond.
Who in their right mind would want to coach the Kingston Frontenacs?
The struggling Kingston Frontenacs have made a move behind the bench. Bruce Cassidy is out as head coach, with Larry Mavety stepping in behind the bench again.
There's a really good read in today's Nova Scotia Chronicle Herald about former OHLer and Kingston native Guy Leveque.
There is always that argument between Most Valuable Player versus Most Outstanding Player. The Red Tilson Trophy is awarded to the Most Outstanding Player in the OHL. But if I was to make a vote for the player deemed most valuable to his team in the OHL at this point in the season, the choice would be easy right now.
The Erie Otters have brought in overager Lyon Messier, who had been trying to land a spot in the Western Hockey League. He is the son of soon-to-be Hall of Famer Mark Messier.
