The Greyhounds are thus awarded the Bumbacco Trophy as West Division, regular-season champions.

The Bumbacco Trophy is named after the legendary Angelo Bumbacco of Sault Ste. Marie.

Bumbacco, who has spent a lifetime in hockey, was the Greyhounds first general manager when they entered the OHL in 1972.
