Series Preview: (2) Waterloo Wolves vs. (7) Hamilton Huskies

A rematch of last year’s first round series, the Waterloo Wolves quest for yet another Alliance championship will need to go through a Hamilton team that has been playing tight, defensive hockey over the past month.

The Waterloo Wolves are on an incredibly impressive run heading into the postseason. The Wolves have won 16 straight games which includes a huge win over the London Jr. Knights just a couple weeks ago. While Waterloo has not dominated throughout their win streak, they have found a way to pull out games when they needed to and get timely scoring along the way.

2015/16 Minor Midget Record: 13-14-6 (7th Place)

2015/16 Final Result: Lost in 4 to Waterloo in Quarter-Finals

2015/16 Major Bantam Record: 8-14-8 (7th Place)

2015/16 Final Result: Lost in 3 to Chatham-Kent in Preliminary Round

A year after allowing the most goals in the Alliance at the Minor Midget level, the Huskies are hoping an influx of talent from across town will help them to contend this season.

Only problem was, Seguin and Taylor’s offense couldn’t overcome a defense that allowed an average of nearly 4 goals a game. There was plenty of potential for the team, but defensively there was plenty to desire.
