Panthers' coach Pete DeBoer part owner of the Oshawa Generals
Pete DeBoer -- second-year coach of the Panthers -- is now officially a part owner of the Ontario Hockey League franchise.
This was a deal that was supposed to be done a long time ago but was messed up because of legal wrangling. But on Sunday, the Generals -- who also brought you one Nathan Horton among many, many others -- was formally introduced with former NHLer Adam Graves as one of the team's new owners.
Will have more from Pete on this later on.
-- What does this mean for the Panthers? Word is the team is going to hold at least part of training camp north of the border. I had heard holding part of it in Kitchener, where Pete coached the Rangers of the OHL.
Even money is now on camp being held in Oshawa -- a good sized town about 40 miles away from Toronto on the shores of Lake Wasapamanni. Or Lake Ontario. One of the big ones.
-- Other famous Oshawa alumni include Bobby Orr and Eric Lindros.
