First game of the Barrie/London series is tonight.
OHL playoff MVP watch: Max Domi, Mathias Niederberger, Mark Scheifele lead the frontrunners heading into final:
Mark Schiefele, Barrie Colts — The Scheifele-Anthony Camara-Zach Hall line will do Barrie's heavy lifting in the final, as it's done all spring. Should the Colts pull off the win, a lot of MVP consideration would conceivably go to Scheifele, their No. 1 centre who's probably been as good as advertised. The 19-year-old pivot's eight goals and playoff-leading 19 assists and 27 points are probably in line with what can reasonably be asked from someone who has shown enough potential to play 11 NHL games as a teenager. Scheifele's also more than held his own against some very heralded centres in the playoffs: Minnesota Wild prospect Tyler Graovac of Belleville, along with Philadelphia Flyers first-rounder Scott Laughton and Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Boone Jenner on the Oshawa Generals.
Hah! So true. It is supposed to be a really nice venue though, especially considering it mainly serves an a junior club rink.
It's a great venu Gump. We have a business about a block from the rink and the Hunters have done a great job driving the Knights brand. They have a good staff and run an excellant business. The building is perfect for junior hockey.
