Tough opposition awaits 67’s in return to TD Place this weekend

The Ottawa 67’s will return to the comfort of TD Place this weekend and aim to get back to winning ways after their 5-1 loss to Kingston Frontenacs in the School Day Game at the Canadian Tire Centre on Wednesday. They will be up against tough opponents as they face Barrie Colts on Friday and then Sarnia Sting on Sunday.

Friday also marks a momentous occasion in the history of the 67’s. Former 67’s defenceman and NHL star Brian Campbell will be honoured by having his No. 44 jersey retired. This is only the fifth jersey to be retired in the 50-year history of the Barber Poles.

The 67’s will be keen to put up a strong display with Campbell watching. Their loss to The Frontenacs was only the second time this season that they have lost twice in a row. The 67’s will also be eager to maintain their 5-0-0 unbeaten record at TD Place.

The Barber Poles with their 9-7-1-0 record are currently second in the East and will be keen to claim the top spot with a strong showing this weekend.

The Opposition

Barrie Colts (9-4-0-1)

The Barrie produced a strong 6-3-0-0 run in October and currently top the Central standings. However, they are coming off a 4-2 loss to the Mississauga Steelheads. The 67’s will have to be wary about the Colts’ offence, which has scored 32 goals in the last seven games. The Colts have won three out of the last five meetings. The Barber Poles will be keen to avenge their 11-2 loss to the Colts in their season opener.

Sarnia Sting (14-1-0-0)

The Sarnia Sting will prove to be tough opponents for the 67’s. They have won more games than any other team in OHL this season. The Sting are currently on a 13-game unbeaten run, having scored an impressive 83 goals so far. That is 15 more than any other team. Sting’s Jordan Kyrou with 28 goals is the joint-top OHL goal scorer. They have also conceded the least number of goals (36) so far. The previous encounter between these two teams resulted in a 7-2 loss for the 67’s. Another one of the results that the 67’s will be looking to reverse.

Game Notes:

  • 67’s captain Travis Barron will be playing his 200th game on Friday night. He will become the 66th Ottawa 67’s player to achieve this milestone.
  • Rookie winger Lucas Peric has two goals in his last three games
  • Olivier Tremblay has just lost once this season – the season opener in Barrie and has gone 5-0-1 since
  • BRING YOUR SKATES! Following Sunday’s game, fans can skate on the TD Place ice with 67’s players. Skates can be checked in at the Guest Relations booth in Section 18
