Always a threat at the top of the Alliance standings, this years Wolves team brings a physical style to the ice with speed and good play making abilities up front.

One year ago, the Wolves came into the league a very balanced squad. Led up front by the likes of Cooper Way, Owen Parsons and Kyle Maloney, the Wolves were able to go deep at forward and get contributions up and down the lineup. Although injuries hampered the team in the postseason, the Wolves were still able to secure an OHL Cup spot and took the long route to eventual get in by winning the Wild Card “tournament” as you could call it.

Following a great postseason run that was capped off by an Alliance championship, the Brantford 99ers are poised for a possible repeat this year.

The 99ers went into the playdown season last year not playing their most consistent hockey. At no point after the Woodstock showcase did the 99ers reel off consecutive wins and they went into the postseason as a team I thought was capable of a first round loss. I can admit when I’m wrong and was I ever as the 99ers were as resilient as they come in the postseason, going 4-0 in elimination games to get past Waterloo, Cambridge and finally London and win the Alliance title. Led up front by Theo Hill and 03 Maddox Callens, the 99ers got timely scoring by their supporting players while Dylan Robinson and 03 Cole Hipkin led the way defensively.

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.
