The Soo Greyhounds find themselves in a good position to keep pace with the London Knights and Windsor Spitfires as they host the low seed Kitchener Rangers for two games.
The Hounds now trail Windsor who just leap frogged over them last night by one point. The Hounds have 65 and both Windsor and London have 66. The key is that the Hounds need these points because the two teams they are chasing have three games in hand.
If the Hounds can play like they did on Wednesday and pick up these points it puts more pressure on the Knights and Spits to win the games in hand.
For whatever reason the Knights are struggling and have lost three straight and that is something you don’t hear of often.
There has been no word from the Hounds at this time regarding the Tye Kartye record breaking goal but I have sent an email and would hope that answer respectfully is forthcoming. The young man should be rewarded on his resume with this great feat and lighting release.

Top Rangers are Mike Petizian (53pts), Joseph Serpa (50), and Francesco Pinelli (43). This team has trouble scoring goals with only 175 according to the OHL website this year and they only have 13 on the PP away from the Aud which clicks at only 20% on foreign soil.
Coach John Dean
GM Kyle Raftis
Rory Kerins leads the way with 89 points while Tye Kartye (60), and Cole McKay (53) also put up good numbers for the Dogs. I have a feeling that Tyler Savard for some reason will have a good game and it’s a toss up as to whether Sammy Ivanov (3.39 GAA/16W7L) gets a start tonight or not. Slowly coming down to the stretch it is imperative that your backup gets some games in and find a groove if called upon. As I said previously both goalies have played well but for some reason Tynans record (11-14/3.51 GAA) doesn’t reflect. If Sammy starts playing and getting the wins…anything can happen (in regards to who gets the starts in regular season and playoffs)
Go Hounds Go !
