Midget Midget Result: Did not qualify for playdowns
Major Bantam Record: 5-22-5 (12th Place)
Major Bantam Result: Lost in quarter-finals to Cambridge in 3 games
After finding a home in the basement of both Minor Midget and Major Bantam, the Lakers will look towards a dominant forward to propel them closer to a playdown spot.
Minor Midget proved to be a difficult season for the Huron-Perth association. A year after arguably having a top two team in the Alliance, the Lakers could not find any consistent scoring and they couldn’t consistently keep the puck out of their net. Despite solid play from Tyson Koopman and Max Mulder, the Lakers spent the vast majority of the season looking up at the competition. Click here for full article
It is finally that time of the year. The OHL Priority Selection draft is upon us and as always it is a very exciting day.
This draft will be different than in past years because of the fact that we now do have the Midget draft in play. Not to say that changes a whole lot but we still do not know what teams strategies will be, especially when it comes to goaltenders.
Looking back at 2016, the Alliance had 36 players taken in the priority selection draft. Of those 36, 22 were forwards, 11 defenseman and 3 goaltenders. Those 36 players represented all 12 teams in the Alliance. When we look at the draft this season, I would expect to see the number of players remain around the 35-40 mark with the possibility of surpassing 40.
