2017-18 OUA Men's Hockey Thread

Lakehead's schedule is up:

http://www.thunderwolveshockey.com/schedule.asp

According to the write-up on Lakehead's website, this year they are only playing 4 games against OUA East teams and 24 against West teams. More focus on intra-division games was talked about last year, but I never saw anything that said it was actually happening. Overall, I think this is a good thing, although it is going to create some imbalances in schedules and the West standings in particular have been really bunched together over the past few years, and this new schedule format will probably make a difference.

They also highlight that on Feb 9/10 Lakehead hosts Waterloo and Laurier, which is the first time in team history that they have a had different opponents at home on the same weekend. The other interesting quirk in Lakehead's schedule is that they have 2 road trips where they play 3 games in 3 nights.

So the OUA regular season starts in September?

If they are only playing 4 games against the OUA East, the Sept games against UOIT must be pre-season. I'm guessing the Oct 6/7 games against Concordia are also pre-season. And the Dec 28/29 games against Guelph are exhibition. Lakehead has never been good at indicating non-conference games on their schedule.

Still nothing posted on the OUA site, but Waterloo's schedule is up and it's interesting. Based on Lakehead's schedule, we knew that the division crossovers were reduced from 10 to games last year to 4 this year, but the unbalanced schedule within the West makes me think the OUA may be going back to the old 4 division format:

http://www.athletics.uwaterloo.ca/sc...x?path=mhockey

In the West, Waterloo plays

Laurier 4X
Windsor 4X
Western 3X
Lakehead 3X

Ryerson 2X
Toronto 2X
York 2X
Guelph 2X
Brock 2X

Plus 4 games against East teams

This lines up like Mid West and Far West divisions. If this is in fact what they have done, in part to reduce travel, it's curious that they didn't flip Guelph and Lakehead. Lakehead is flying into Toronto anyway and Guelph is 25 minutes away from Waterloo.

Odd start. McGill plays two games before anybody else. Very staggered start to the season.

I'm new to this level of hockey but trying to immerse myself in it. I'm Toronto based so there are lots of options. I'm working on a piece about the Varsity Blues. Anyone with pointers, tips or who just wants to discuss the game feel free to PM me!

The U of T has a rich history. I would start with Wikia:

http://icehockey.wikia.com/wiki/Toronto_Varsity_Blues

There are links to many sites in that page. I helped compile a lot of it. There are stats going back to the 1800s, photos, the whole bit.
