67’s and Frontenacs to meet in pair of exhibition contests
The Ontario Hockey League today unveiled the exhibition schedule for the 2017-18 season. Fittingly, the 67’s will square off against one of their biggest rivals in the Kingston Frontenacs to open the exhibition schedule of their 50th Anniversary Season.
The Barber Poles will visit the Frontenacs on Sunday, September 3 at 2:00 p.m. at the Rogers K-Rock Centre before Kingston makes the trek to the nation’s capital to face the 67’s at TD Place on Friday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m.
It has been a busy month of June for the Ottawa 67’s. The month began with the hiring of James Boyd as the new General Manager and André Tourigny as Vice-President of Hockey Operations and Head Coach.
Over the weekend, Noel Hoefenmayer and Sasha Chmelevski saw their dreams realized as the pair were selected in the 2017 NHL Draft going to Arizona and San Jose respectively. Both Boyd and Tourigny were on hand to witness this milestone in their careers.
On Wednesday, the busy month will continue for the 67’s brass who will take part in the CHL Import Player Draft as they continue to build the squad for the 2017-18 season and beyond.
The 67’s open their 50th Anniversary Season that will open September 21 in Barrie, with their home opener set for Sunday, September 24 against the reigning OHL Champions, the Erie Otters. The 67’s are planning several special game nights in celebration of the team’s 50th Anniversary Season. Details will be announced leading up to training camp.
