Weekend What’s Up: 67’s Playoffs, Coffee Fest, Rock of Ages in the Glebe
It’s been a banner year for the Ottawa 67’s and the top OHL team will begin its campaign for the memorial cup this Friday in the Glebe.
The team broke its previous franchise records for single season points (106) and equaled the 1983-84 season in wins (50), while 67’s goaltending tandem of Mike DiPietro and Cedric Andree posted the league’s best Goals Against Average throughout the season.
Up front it was Tye Felhaber who led the way offensively, posting an impressive 109 points with a whopping 59 goals in 68 games, good enough for third overall in the league. Felhaber also posted the league’s best Plus-Minus rating of +56 this season.
The team also won the Hamilton Spectator Trophy as the top team in the OHL, and with it comes home-ice advantage throughout the entire playoffs.
That all starts Friday night at TD Place when the defending OHL champs the Hamilton Bulldogs show up for Game 1 of the OHL Playoffs.
Ottawa swept their season series with the Bulldogs 5-0, but anything can happen in the playoffs. The 67’s lost last year’s opening round against the Bulldogs 4-1.
