King labels Storm OHL ‘darkhorse’

The Barrie Colts may have been crowned regular season champions, but the defending Memorial Cup champion Windsor Spitfires remain the team to beat in the Ontario Hockey League.

The Guelph Storm salvaged a poor start and could be giant killers when the playoffs begin this week.

The Darkhorse

Guelph Storm

Regular season record: 35-29-3-1 (74 points)

League ranking: Seventh in Western Conference, Tenth overall

Regular season goal differential: 242-255

First Round Opponent: London Knights

The Guelph Storm showed up late to the party, but they could now be ruining it for some of the top teams. Guelph is one of the league’s hottest teams heading into the playoffs after a slow start put them in chase mode in the second half. Much more was expected from the team boasting a star-studded offence, which includes Anaheim first-round pick, Peter Holland.

Head coach and general manager Jason Brooks also missed part of the season after undergoing back surgery. As far as the Storm is concerned, its inclusion to the playoffs is better late than never.
