OHL announces all-star teams:

Twenty-one players were announced yesterday to make up the three all-star teams on the season. Notable selections include NHL prospects: Evan Bouchard and Adam Boqvist, Draft Prospects: Nick Suzuki, and Arthur Kaliyev, with head coach Andre Torgniay from the Ottawa 67’s being named first-team honours for his record-breaking season with the organization. Overall, the players represent 11 teams from around the OHL with Guelph having the most at four nominations while surprisingly, regular-season leaders Ottawa 67’s only had one nomination for players in Tye Felhaber.


The complete list for all the players can be found in the link below:


Saginaw signs Josh Bloom:

Saginaw’s second-round pick of the draft Josh Bloom has officially committed to the team for the 2019/20 season. Bloom is known from his time in the GTHL for his speed and a prolific scoring touch. Last season in the GTHL he scored 85 points, with 44 of those being goal tallies. Saginaw hopes he can make an immediate impact on the left wing, and lead them back to the promise-land of playoff hockey.

Former Windsor Spitfires Coach Bob Boughner is back for the San Jose Sharks:

After an impressive eight-year run with the Windsor Spitfires, Bob Boughner was hired (the first time) to be an assistant coach for the Sharks in 2015. After two successful seasons with the Sharks, he got offered the Head-coaching job for the Florida Panthers where he remained for two seasons. After things not working out in Florida, Boughner is set to return as an assistant in San Jose in the role where it all began in the NHL for him.

Team Events:

The Hamilton Bulldogs are having their annual equipment and locker-room sale, where fans can get a piece of the 2018/19 team.
