While the focus of most hockey fans is on the World Cup this week, it is not the only game in town. On Wednesday night, the OHL regular season kicks off with London and Sarnia squaring off in what could very well end up being a preview of the Western Conference Final.
Many of the league’s top players will still be at their NHL training camps, but when the dust settles, this season promises to be a great one. With the way the OHL has dominated the past few NHL drafts, the talent level id going to be one that is unrivaled in junior hockey, even with the likely loss of last year’s top players.
The Memorial Cup is back in Ontario – where it belongs – this season. Windsor will be looking to build a team with the ability to win on home ice, and the rest of the league will be hoping to keep up.
Along with my preview, I have gathered the opinion of four people who all have a great knowledge of the OHL and a passion for junior hockey. Below is our OHL season preview, but first I want to sincerely thank Jon (@), Kathryn (@), Adam (@) and the one and only @ for helping out.
