A year after seeing their streak of three consecutive Alliance championships come to an end, the Waterloo Wolves are once again positioned to possibly start a new streak this season.

It was going to be hard pressed for the Wolves organization to top the talent level that the 2000 born team had.

Led up front by Keean Washkurak and on the back end by workhorse Nathan Allensen, the Wolves ended their regular season winning 16 consecutive league games and continued that with a sweep in the opening round. A phenomenal series against Kitchener followed and after a grueling eight game series win, the Wolves fell short against a dominant London squad.
