The Ottawa 67’s held a season-opening press conference on Wednesday as the club prepares to kick off it’s 2018-2019 OHL campaign at home on Friday night.
Head Coach and VP of Hockey Operations Andre Tourigny said fans should be excited about the talent level of this year’s group of Barber Poles.
“We are in a position where everyone is fighting for ice time in a healthy environment, and when you have that it creates competition inside our locker room,” Tourigny said. “’We are not focusing on results right now we are only focusing on the process and getting better every day, and if we do that, we know we will get good results’’.
Defenceman Hudson Wilson, who is entering his fourth year with the 67’s, said this year’s roster is the most skilled group he’s played with in his major junior career.
“’I’ve been here for four years and I’ve never had a group be this exciting to be a part of,’’ said Wilson. “’We have a great locker room, everyone gets along well and we’re excited to get going.”
