Re: Basement C Teams

Don't know about shuttering the franchise, but with 3 games remaining in their schedule and essentially no roster, the Yeck might only have 8 teams next season. Not 100% sure though.

Basement C Teams

Took a look at the PJHL standings today and noticed a few teams who would maybe want to press a restart button on their season. Any insights on: 1. Little Britain: 0-30-1 2. Campbellford: 0-30-0 3. Orillia: 3-31-0 4. Goderich & Hanover: 6-23-3 & 6-24-3 5. Wallaceburg: 3-28-0 6. Lucan: 3-25-2 7. Delh...

Hearing the twins have quit again. Same ownership ..... different town .... same problems
Again? As in they have quit before? Hope that’s not the case. The team is 5-12-3-1 and could still turn it around, maybe?

The grass isn’t always greener I guess. Hope it turns around.

Re: Strathroy Rockets

This comes up at least once a season, why don't you play at the new arena, why do you still play at the old arena, the new arena would be so much better for your fans, etc. The answer is that the Gemini is a piece of crap, that's why we don't play there. The dressing room they built for us was not ...

Re: Strathroy Rockets

The next 5 games:

at London
at St Marys
vs London
vs St Marys
at Komoka

A prediction (for fun):

L, W, L, W, W

A 3-2-0 record would good. The two losses would be against London.

North Middlesex Impressive

An impressive turn around in North Middlesex. More often than not, I am seeing wins from the Stars and that’s s good thing. I also like the fact they’ve got a younger guy behind the GMs desk. More Junior C teams should be run by younger blood. It’s a great opportunity for younger people to get invol...

Re: Jr.C player scores 8 goals in a game

Alliston forward Drake Broad scored 8 goals and added 2 assists in his teams 16-2 win tonight. He scored 6 or 7 goals in a row. What a game! As soon as I saw this post I knew they had to have played Orillia. That team at the moment is in absolute shambles. Wow. Pretty cool hockey story for Drake go...

Re: Is it working in Komoka?

First off lets compare apples to apples. In the Preds first year in the league they averaged 299 fans per game, finishing with a record 10 -35 - 7, that was up 99 fans per game from the previous year in Petrolia. The second year they averaged 266 with a record of 6 - 44,,,, the third with a record ...

Re: Strathroy Rockets

We have been Rockets fans for many years, and I have to say about the last five to seven years it has slowly been deteriorating. I know I have already stated this but a community owned team does not have deep pockets like the privately owned teams. Whether this is the lynch pin in what’s happening ...

Is it working in Komoka?

The team is 4-10-3-1, sitting in 2nd last place, battling with St. Marys and to some extent, the Rockets, in the basement. So I will ask - Is it working in Komoka? How has attendance been? Does the “town” even care that they’re there? Thoughts? How many years until they move again or pack it in? Eng...

Re: Dundas Blues need help

A number of Jr. C teams find themselves in this same predicament. Old rinks that the towns have someone neglected over the years, little to no atmosphere during games, etc. Some items such as putting on a show is up to the team, there are good ones and bad ones, that is just Jr. C / small town issue...

Re: Commish

You don't really need some old vet that has been around for years and has connections in all 3 levels of hockey governance. That's who they'll get. I am hopefully for a more "youthful" commissioner. But hockey at any level is an old boys club. I guess time will tell. Any names floating around that ...

Re: Brantford Going Jr A?

I like this line the best - "You can't just say no we deny because we don't feel like it" - I feel this line is the OHA to a "T" recently. So many smoke and mirrors. It's a bit concerning. Hoping Brantford can grasp this in the next year or two, I think it would be great for the city granted the bra...

I have been (somewhat) keeping up with the OJHL, but for myself, like perhaps others, the OJHL is a fairly distant league for me to really follow closely. I don't have much connection with the league, but like RagingBS has said, it seems to be the only league operating at the moment. I saw the GOJHL...

What's The Latest?

Happy Summer!

Hope everyone's having a good summer. I was curious to know what's been happening around all divisions this summer?

The OHA and PJHL websites seem to have fizzled out for the summer which is a shame. There's tons of hockey news going on during the summer.

Best,

I tend to monitor attendance quite a bit over the season and have noticed some brutal numbers (or none at all). Thoughts on attendance in the PJHL from the various divisions?
