Home Opener Game Preview – Ottawa vs Peterborough

67’s bring hot start back to TD Place for Sunday’s Home Opener

Off to a 3-0 start in this young 2019-2020 OHL season, the Ottawa 67’s will hit their home ice at The Arena at TD Place for the first time this year on Sunday afternoon.

Icing a lineup with as much skill and depth as anyone in the league with a dose of up-and-coming young skill, the 67’s are looking to take the next step just months after a historic 2018-2019 campaign came to heartbreaking end.

So far through a pair of road games, Ottawa has quickly rediscovered its winning touch, with the Barber Poles scoring back-to-back shootout wins last weekend to officially get things underway.

The only thing standing between the 67’s and their fans at the home rink is a third-straight road date on Friday night, this time against the Kingston Frontenacs, a team Ottawa had its way with last year.

Here’s a look at Ottawa’s next opponent.

The moment everyone has waited all summer for is finally here. For the first time this season, the 67’s will face-off at The Arena at TD Place, this time against a Peterborough Petes team that finished middle-of-the-pack in the OHL standings last season. Ottawa and Peterborough played a tight season series last year, with the 67’s finishing with a 4-3 edge in games won.



  • After a perfect start to the season on the road, the 67’s will host the Peterborough Petes for their 2019-2020 home opener and will have the chance to extend their winning streak to three.
  • The 67’s are coming back home with pretty much the same core group that won 29 home games last year, including a string of 14 straight from December 28 to March 3.
  • The 67’s will try to win their first win this season in regular time after winning their first two games in shootouts.
  • 67’s goaltender, Cedrick Andree, faced 64 shots in the last games while keeping a save percentage of 0.922.
  • Three of the five 67’s goals this season came from the power play.
  • Austen Keating is currently Ottawa’s offensive leader with four points, followed by Marco Rossi and Noel Hoefenmayer who are tied at three points each.
  • Petes forwards Nick Robertson and Semyon Der-Arguchintsev are having a good start to the season offensively with respectively five and seven points in two games.
  • With a record of 1W-1L so far this season, the Peterborough Petes has conceded 13 goals and has scored 12 goals.
