As the hockey season ends for more and more junior teams, today’s headline is for those who are still playing for a championship in May.
Soo Thunderbirds have already won the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League and Dudley-Hewitt Cup, Central Canada championships.
Up next for the boys from the Soo are the RBC Cup, Canadian national championships.
May the force be with them.
Over to the Ontario Hockey League, there will be no “true north” final.
Both Soo Greyhounds and North Bay Battalion were ousted in their respective conference finals on the weekend leaving the Erie Otters and Oshawa Generals to face off for the OHL championship and Memorial Cup representative.
May the best team win.
NAHL TO NOJHL
Though multiple sources have confirmed it, there has been no official announcement that the Soo Eagles will return to the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League after three seasons in the North American Hockey League.
May the story be told.
Not sure if it is because of the coverage I have been giving the new Iroquois Falls Eskimos and their successful season-ticket spash but their nearby NOJHL arch-rivals, the Timmins Rock, has decided to “unfollow” me on Twitter.
May the Rock hit bottom.
