Erie Otters forward Greg McKegg has been chosen to replace Windsor Spitfires forward Greg Nemisz on the Western Conference roster of Wednesday’s OHL all-star game.
Talking to Peterborough Petes head coach Ken McRae about losing three key players in the span of 24 hours he was a little dumbfounded to say the least.
Mississauga St. Michael's Majors forward Gregg Sutch will be playing host to kids from the group VOICE for Hearing Impaired Children today when the Sudbury Wolves head to the Hershey Centre.
When we last left Peterborough Petes forward Ryan Spooner he was preparing for last year's playoff series with the Brampton Battalion and making Kraft Dinner.
SOMEWHERE EN ROUTE TO WINDSOR -- I'm on a Via train right now on my way to Windsor for the CHL Top Prospects game. It's actually my first time taking the train and so far so good.
Proving once again that stupidity isn't just localized in one OHL city, the Niagara IceDogs had their bus tampered with after a game against the Whalers in Plymouth, Michigan.
KITCHENER, ONT. --- After spending more than three hours in traffic, I finally made it out to the Kitchener Aud to see the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors defeat the host Rangers 2-1 last night.
The CHL has announced that Mississauga St. Michael's Majors forward Devante Smith-Pelly has been added to the Top Prospects game in Windsor next week.
The OHL today announced the 2009-10 rosters for the leauge all-star game taking place at the K-Rock centre in Kingston, Ont., on Feb. 2-3.
This concludes our special blogcast of OHL trade deadline 2010... we now return you to your regular programming. We survived more or less intact, Terry suffered a minor foot injury racing for a phone and Sunaya is sick, forcing her to text-only today because she's lost her voice.
The Peterborough Petes have acquired defenceman Brian Birkhoff from Ottawa 67's for a 5th-round draft pick 2010.
Looks like a strong world junior tournament with Team Canada has helped Windsor Spitfires forward Taylor Hall lay claim to the top spot in the NHL central scouting bureau's mid-season rankings.
Plymouth Whalers GM Mike Vellucci has finalized a deal that will bring forward Phil McRae to the Whalers from the London Knights.
Apparently, based on my inbox, there are a few people who somehow misread the post about former Plymouth Whalers all-star nice guy Chris Terry. So let's try this again...
UPDATED WITH BARRIE QUOTES
Chris DeSousa's stay with the Barrie Colts was short.
Sorry about the delay in posting this but I was so engrossed with watching "The Wrap" post-game TV show of the London Knights, that I had no time to do anything else really.
In today's round of phone calls -- before Petro-Madness-- I had the pleasure of shooting the breeze with Kingston Frontenacs GM Larry Mavety, who is awesome.
We've been waiting for so long for this deal to be done, but could there be more to it?
Finally the deal we've all been waiting for is done between the Niaraga IceDogs and the Barrie Colts, involving Team Canada stud defender Alex Pietrangelo.
So it looks like the following... Petro, DeSousa and Petteri Simila to Barrie for Strome and Simon Gronvaldt and picks. We're still unsure if this will be split into two trades.
Another false alarm?? Sorry fans, but according to Barrie Colts asst. GM Jason Ford, the deal is NOT DONE -- but very close.
Interviewed Plymouth Whalers head coach and GM Mike Vellucci this morning to see if he had any plans for this glorious trade deadline and learned that the Whalers had arrived home at the wee hours of the morning because some idiot in St. Catharines had tampered with their bus.
Plymouth Whalers head coach and GM Mike Vellucci was ejected from tonight's game against the Niagara IceDogs after arguing a call with referee Mike Bolibruck late in the second period.
The Kitchener Rangers have sent left-winger Shane Prince to the Ottawa 67s for a third-round pick in the 2010 draft.
Word out of Barrie is that Ryan Strome is expect to be in the lineup tonight when they host the Brampton Battalion.
This is a weird one... so what we have so far according to one OHL source is that there are two separate deals on the table between the Barrie Colts and Niagara IceDogs. Not sure why, though.
While the trade deadline has taken up a lot of the headlines, today the shocking story of former OHLer Dan Ryder's arrest is the most pressing.
Ugh. Who thought "soon" could take so long. OK so this deal is not done, and one side has apparently gotten cold feet over the trade.
As first mentioned on our Twitter feed, there’s a deal on the verge of completion between the Kingston Frontenacs and the Saginaw Spirit.
Just in case you were wondering about the possibilities of former Oshawa Generals sniper Brett Parnham returning to the OHL...
In keeping with tradition, let me post the disclaimer used every year to set out the ground rules for my updates on LPs.
The Windsor Spitfires look to have solidified their goaltending by landing Philipp Grubauer from the Belleville Bulls.
For those of you expecting defenceman Alex Pietrangelo to magically show up in Barrie or London or (insert city here), you might have to wait a bit.
I came across this interview with Team Canada forward Jordan Eberle this morning and thought I'd share. It's done by reporter Cory Wolfe and it's hilarious, or at least I thought so.
