Two players for the Kingston Frontenacs and a member of the training staff have been taken to hospital in Windsor following a vehicle/pedestrian accident Friday morning. Because of this, tonight's Kingston at Saginaw game has been postponed, and tomorrow's game in Plymouth have been postponed.
The Sarnia Sting have picked up forward Aaron Snow from the Niagara Ice Dogs in return for a conditional draft choice.
A few OHL graduates went through a hair-raising experience as the result of a bus crash early Thursday morning involving their ECHL team.
The London Knights have signed their seventh round pick in the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.
Fans checking out Plymouth Whalers games lately have probably noticed GM/Head Coach Mike Vellucci missing from the bench. It is not by his choice.
Over the years, most of the OHL and Memorial Cup games I have witnessed have been from a high vantage point, usually the press box. But Sunday's Sarnia/Peterborough tilt was witnessed from a different level, and definitely gave a different view of the game.
It's strange that sometimes in the OHL two teams that never see each other all of a sudden act like they are long-time rivals. That can be said for Sunday's Sarnia Sting/Peterborough Petes game.
Former OHL All-star goaltender Kevin Lalande is on the move again this season.
The struggling Erie Otters are hoping to give thanks for a win over the U.S. holiday, but started off the festivities by making a pair of trades.
Buried in the news of Windsor picking up Michal Neuvirth from Plymouth was the Spitfires also acquiring a goaltender from the Western Hockey League.
West Division rivals Plymouth Whalers and Windsor Spitfires have hooked up in a multi-player trade with goaltender Michal Neuvirth the biggest name involved.
The Saginaw Spirit have traded overage captain Patrick Asselin to the Oshawa Generals for a fifth round pick in 2008 and a 2nd round choice in 2009.
Tuesday night's Soo Greyhounds at Sudbury Wolves game was suspended with the score tied 0-0 heading into the third period. Ice conditions forced this as the surface was deemed unsafe to play on. Apparently the issue involved logos in the ice, and the rink being shaved down by the re-surfacing machine (aka Zamboni or Olympia) too low that it caused the ads to poke through. No word on when the game will be resumed.
While this space is normally reserved for OHL issues, with this being hockey hall of fame weekend, I thought it would be a good time to use this spot to talk about a player I think is very worthy of induction.
The Mississauga St. Michael's Majors appear ready to make things even busier in the crease.
