Hounds eye 50 wins, 100 points

February 25, 2015

Soo Greyhounds super fan Chris Sierzputowski recently tweeted that I should be giving his favourite Ontario Hockey League team some love.

He’s right.

With 10 games to go in the 2014-2015 regular season and 92 points from a record of 45-11-2, the Greyhounds are closing in on a couple of milestones.

Four more victories will put the Greyhounds at 100 points for the season.

Five more wins will put the Greyhounds at 50 for the season.

The Hounds even have a shot at surpassing the franchise record for most points in a season, which was 109 back in 1984-1985 when coach Terry Crisp and his disciplined disciples posted a record of 54-11-1.

Ergo, this 2014-2015 edition of the Hounds has 10 games to try to put up 18 points which would establish a new franchise record.

Of course, it should be noted that the 1984-1985 Greyhounds played 66 regular-season games while all 20 OHL teams now play 68.

Still, this figures to at least be the second straight 95-point season for the Sheldon Keefe-coached Greyhounds, who posted a record of 44-17-5 in 2013-2014.

What you think about “Hounds eye 50 wins, 100 points”

  1. This coach has bought respectability back to this storied franchise and deserves all the credit in the world. Hopefully greyhounds fans appreciate him as he may be NHL bound in the very near future. Seems like success has followed this guy no matter the team, no matter the league. I would love to be his agent as a big payday may be in his future.

  2. I think this is more a case of Keefe being in the rite place at the rite time. He is a good Coach but NHL ??? I don’t know about that.

  3. I agree with hockey critic Keefe iana classy man. , and nhl is defiantly in the future for this man. I will call it right now maybe not next year or the year after but defiantly down the road
