  • 2017 Memorial Cup: Don’t Count Out Underdog Spits

    2017 Memorial Cup: Don’t Count Out Underdog Spits

    The Windsor Spitfires are underdogs at this year’s Memorial Cup, but the team has plenty of weapons at its disposal – and a tank full of gas. The City of Windsor last hosted the Memorial Cup in 1981, back when it was held in neutral cities. Since the format was restructured in 1983, the Spitfires have played in the tournament three times – advancing to the final on each occasion. They won twice, in 2009 and 2010.

    2017 Memorial Cup: Star-Studded Otters Get Over the Hump, But What’s Next?

    The Erie Otters have finally found that winning formula.  Captain Dylan Strome and OHL defenceman/overage player of the year Darren Raddysh have both been part of the Otters since 2013 and leading into this year, they were part of some very strong teams.

  • T-Birds Win First Ed Chynoweth Cup En Route to 2017 Memorial Cup

    T-Birds Win First Ed Chynoweth Cup En Route to 2017 Memorial Cup

    The Seattle Thunderbirds defied all odds in the Western Hockey League playoffs. From missing out on a divisional banner to the Everett Silvertips, to losing starting goaltender Rylan Toth due to injury and being an overwhelming underdog against the CHL’s top-ranked Regina Pats — the T-Birds have heard it all before, but none of that stopped them from avenging last season’s heartbreaking loss in the final and punching their ticket to the Memorial Cup.

    HockeyNow’s Memorial Cup Panel Predicts the Winners

    Many expected that the 2017 Memorial Cup would feature 1, 2 and 3 from CHL’s Top Ten. But Seattle defeated the No. 1 Regina Pats to leave us with 2 and 3 in the Otters and Sea Dogs – and to remind us that anything can happen.

    Around the CHL: Mississauga Sweeps, Five Other Series Still in Full Swing

    Hot and Cold: OHL Final Four

    When I started this “Hot and Cold” column at the beginning of the playoffs, I had a feeling that it could get repetitive. Given that the Otters generally score twice as many goals as everyone else, they have four or five guys who will always be tearing up the stat sheet.
