The Plymouth Whalers have signed Beau Schmitz. He was the Whalers top choice in the 2007 OHL Priority Selection.
With no other commitments this weekend, I decided to make the trek to Montreal and take in Game 2 of the Montreal/Philadelphia series. It was my first time seeing a Canadiens home game and it was quite an experience.
Plymouth Whalers grad Tom Sestito made his NHL debut Sunday for the Columbus Blue Jackets. But as it turns out, one of the most memorable moments of his first game came afterwards.
As mentioned earlier, Game 2 of the Kitchener Rangers/Sarnia Sting series would be one to remember for years to come. As it turns out, there has only been one game to go longer.
One day after the NHL regular season ended, the Tampa Bay Lightning have won the NHL Draft Lottery and have the top pick at all of the great OHL talent available in this year's draft.
We all have them, games we've attended that we'll remember for a long time. We may not remember every detail, but certainly remember the game itself. Saturday night in Sarnia will certainly be on that list for me.
While most OHL players who see their season come to an end by now are disappointed, for a handful there is a consolation prize, they have been named to Team Canada.
Taylor Hall burst onto the OHL scene this year with the Windsor Spitfires, setting the team's rookie goal scoring record. He's now been rewarded for his rookie campaign by OHL writers and broadcasters.
