Series Preview: (1) London Jr. Knights vs. (2) Waterloo Wolves

For the third consecutive year, Waterloo and London will meet with the Alliance championship up for grabs. With Waterloo having won both of those meetings, and the past three Alliance titles, the Jr. Knights will look to conquer the reigning champion with arguably the best team currently in the province and possibly the best team to wear the Jr. Knights jerseys.

London has cruised their way to the championship series. London powered their way past Sun County in the opening round and then had very little trouble sweeping away an incredibly talented Cambridge team in the second round. London has been led by some familiar faces through their seven postseason games with top OHL Draft prospect Ryan Suzuki leading the way with 18 points while talented winger Aidan Prueter has eight goals and 16 points.

2015/16 Minor Midget Final Result: Beat London in 6 to win Alliance Championship (Advanced to OHL Cup)

2015/16 Major Bantam Final Result: Lost in 6 to London in Alliance Championship

It has been three straight years that the Minor Midget Waterloo Wolves have hoisted the Alliance championship at year’s end and for yet another year, the Wolves look to be part of the elite in the league.

The 2000 age group was a very special one for the Waterloo Wolves. They were chalked full of talent, as is evident with the amount of players taken in the OHL Priority Selection Draft this past April. The Wolves had an electric offense with many different weapons to go along with some big body defensemen who played a very physical game. Oh yeah, not to mention the best goalie in the league in Nathan Torchia. Waterloo survived long series with both Kitchener and London last year to claim the Alliance title. While the result wasn’t what they hoped for, Waterloo was also the best showing Alliance team in the OHL Cup last season.
