Tonight concludes this weekend’s home and home series between the Oshawa Generals and Ottawa 67s, which began Friday night in Ottawa. With an off day yesterday, both teams will look to utilize fresh legs as they faceoff for the third time in six games.
While we are only 20 games into the season, the Gens would like to make the most of the home ice as they hope to climb the standings in the East Division and steal two points from their competition. Ottawa currently holds the second spot in the East Division and Oshawa sits in fifth. However, it is important to reiterate that there are only five points separating our boys from first place, therefore they will look to take care of business against divisional opponents as all five teams jockey for position. Tonight, the Generals are expected to welcome back Nick Wong and Mitchell Brewer as they return from competing with Team Canada at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. The 67s are also set to welcome back rookie forward Graeme Clarke who played alongside Mitchell Brewer on Canada White.
This evening the Generals will don Remembrance Day commemorative camouflage jerseys in support of Wounded Warriors Canada during our Night of Remembrance celebration. With the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge in 2017, the battle was the inspiration behind the commemorative jersey to honour and remember the sacrifices that were made by Canadian soldiers during its battle and all the service men and women who continue to serve for our country. Wounded Warriors Canada is a national mental health charity whose mission is to honour and support our ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and their families. Following the game, the jerseys will be up for auction on the General eBay page, with all proceeds of the jersey sales going to Wounded Warriors Canada.
