Players to Watch

Guelph Storm

Andrei Bakanov was drafted by the Guelph Storm 38th overall in the 2019 import draft and has had a strong start to the season with 5 goals and 10 points through 15 games this played. The 6′.02″ 220lbs winger is looking to continue his strong play as a high ranked prospect for the upcoming 2020 NHL entry draft.

Kingston Frontenacs

Zayde Wisdom finished his rookie season with 10 points in 60 games last season, but has 8 goals and 12 points through 17 games played this season. The Toronto native is looking to continue his strong play and help the Kingston Frontenacs get back to their winning ways.

Guelph Remembrance Day Jerseys

The Guelph Storm are proud to unveil plans for the team’s annual Veterans’ Week game on Saturday, November 9th vs. the Kingston Frontenacs. In addition to a special pre-game ceremony in partnership with Guelph’s Royal Canadian Legion Colonel John McCrae Memorial Branch 234, the Storm will be wearing one-of-a-kind jerseys to commemorate the Guelph Armoury.

Guelph’s Amoury is located in downtown Guelph and only a short distance from the Sleeman Centre.  The Armoury stands tall because of its prominent location and conspicuous appearance making it a familiar local landmark in the Royal City and remains a constant reminder of our city’s proud involvement in Canada’s Armed Forces dating back to it’s construction in 1906-07.  Guelph’s Armoury is closely associated with the reform and expansion of the Active Volunteer Militia from 1886 to 1911. The reforms transformed the militia from a citizen militia into an efficient military force prepared for action when the First World War broke out. Guelph’s Armoury was used as both a training and recruitment centre during the ‘Great War’.  Well over a century later, the Armoury continues to operate as a Canadian Forces armoury.

The jerseys worn during the game will be auctioned off following Remembrance Day with all proceeds raised donated locally to Guelph’s Legion Branch 234 , Elora Legion Branch 229 and Fergus Legion Branch 275.

Upcoming Games

Guelph will return to action on Friday November 15th as the Owen Sound Attack visit the Sleeman Centre at 7:30pm. Guelph will then take on the Saginaw Spirit on Saturday afternoon to wrap up their weekend of games.
