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.
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.
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 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.
The Niagara Ice Dogs have acquired forward Aaron Snow from the Windsor Spitfires in return for fourth round pick in 2009 and third rounder in 2010.
After a search that lasted more than one year, the OHL has hired Conrad Hache as its new Director of Officiating/Referee-in-Chief.
Here is a piece of advice for everyone out there, don't make yourself homeless.
The Sarnia Sting finally found the back of the net and that helped snap a four-game losing skid in a 6-2 victory over the Oshawa Generals Friday night in Sarnia.
The Sarnia Sting have moved disgruntled defenceman Chris Mifflen to the Belleville Bulls in return for draft picks.
