Game Preview: Guelph Storm at Soo Greyhounds

December 3, 2021 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Guelph Storm News Release


The Storm are back in action tonight as they begin their weekend road trip with a game against the Soo Greyhounds. The puck drops at 7:07pm.

The three wins in three games last weekend a four game win streak earned the Storm an honorable mention in the CHL's top 10 rankings. With a record of 13-6-1-1 and 28 points, the Storm currently sit 2nd in the conference standings just shy of the Knights with 31. Finding a recent hot streak is Matthew Poitras, who in his last two games has been able to score two goals and tally one assist. The most recent Storm win saw a dominant performance when they beat the Otters 7-3. Third year forward Jacob Maillet scored his first two goals of the season helping the Storm get the edge on the Otters. The Storm will look to play spoiler against Greyhounds as they play for the 3rd time this season at the GFL Memorial Gardens. The Soo currently lead the season series two games to one defeating the Storm 4-2 and 9-2. The Storm pulled off a 6-5 victory the last time these two clubs went head to head.

The Soo Greyhounds are 12-9-0-0 and are 3rd in conference standings. They have had some stagnant success recently winning only 2 out of their last 5 games which saw their wins come in games against the Erie Otters and the Sarnia Sting. The Greyhounds are coming off that 2-0 win against the Sting and this should give them some jump in their step as they are at home tonight. Rory Kerins who leads the team in points with 32 and assists with 21 will be a key piece to the continued success of the Greyhounds as he leads the team offensively.
