2017/18 Windsor Jr. Spitfires Season Preview

Minor Midget Record: 15-14-4 (6th Place)

Minor Midget Result: Lost in quarter-finals to Kitchener in 3 games

Major Bantam Record: 8-16-8 (10th Place)

Major Bantam Result: Lost in 1st round to Chatham-Kent in 4 games

Following a disappointing and inconsistent season for the minor midget team last season, the challenge is there once again for the Windsor organization.

There was plenty of talent on the 2001 born Windsor squad. Led by 2002 born Tyler Tullio and the likes of Aaron Shaw and Adam Jeffery up front, the Jr. Spitfires should have had a dynamic offense that should have been able to compete with the better teams in the Alliance. Windsor never got consistent play and was bounced quickly in the postseason by Kitchener.

Series Preview: (3) Kitchener Jr. Rangers vs. (6) Windsor Jr. Spitfires

Last season, the Windsor Jr. Spitfires took on the Kitchener Jr. Rangers in a preliminary round series at Major Bantam. Windsor was a six seed, Kitchener was last at 11. Kitchener pulled off the upset in three games. These two teams meet again this year, but this time Kitchener is the top seed and Windsor is looking for the upset.

These two teams are not strangers to each other. Both squads met up four times this year with a quarter-final date at the Dale Parker tournament joining their three league games. Kitchener took the season series 3-1, winning the final three meetings which included that quarter-final game.

2015/16 Minor Midget Final Standings: 15-12-6 (6th Place)

2015/16 Minor Midget Final Result: Lost to London in 7 in Semi-Finals (Advanced to OHL Cup)

2015/16 Major Bantam Final Standings: 10-12-8 (6th Place)

2015/16 Major Bantam Final Result: Lost in 3 to Kitchener in Preliminary Round

While the Minor Midget team last year was enjoying a world of success near the end of the year, the bantam team had their season ended with an upset. The 2001 age group is aiming to duplicate their predecessors success this season.

The 2000 team last year was the typical story of a team that got stronger and better as the season went on. They succeeded with mistake free hockey and great chemistry to go from a 6th seed in the Alliance to arguably having the best showing of any Alliance team in the OHL Cup this past March. Led by Owen Lalonde, the #2 pick in this year’s OHL Priority Selection Draft, Windsor was a prime example of a team that stayed together throughout their years in hockey and thrived at the end.
