The Soo Greyhounds are in town for their only visit to the PMC this regular season.
The OHL’s reigning Western Conference Champs have a few key pieces returning from last season’s run which included a 23-game win streak, including goaltender Matthew Villalta, centre Morgan Frost, and defencemen Mac Hollowell and Jordan Sambrook. They are, however, without Boris Katchouk and Taylor Raddysh who were first and second, respectively, in league playoff scoring. Standout Swedish rearguard Rasmus Sandin has also turned pro.
They may not be without him for the season, but Peterborough native Barrett Hayton has started the 2018-19 NHL regular season with the Arizona Coyotes after being selected by the club fifth overall in this summer’s entry draft.
Petes alumnus Jamie Tardif, who captained the 2006-06 OHL Champion team, makes his return to the PMC as the Greyhounds’ newly named assistant coach following a 12-year pro career which saw stops in the NHL, AHL, ECHL, and DEL.
Off the ice, Oldies 96.7 is giving one lucky listener a chance to win $50,000 during tonight’s first intermission, and the Trent Business Student Association is holding a fundraising chuck-a-puck. Students of Kawartha Heights Public School will perform the national anthem.
