Players to Watch

Guelph Storm – Jacob Roach

Jacob has enjoyed a good first half to his rookie season with the Guelph Storm thus far, as he has scored 7 goals and 14 points in the opening half of the season. Drafted by the Sudbury Wolves in 2016, Jacob has been one of the hardest working players for the Storm this season and has been a welcome surprise for Guelph this year.

Kitchener Rangers – Jonathan Yantsis

Jonathan had a stellar season last year for the Rangers after scoring 50 goals and 73 points before adding another 2 goals in 4 playoff games. This season, Yantsis has 27 goals already and is on pace to finish around 50 goals again this year.

Upcoming Games

The Storm will head out of town next week for their games as they visit Ottawa on Friday January 10th at 7:00pm and head to Kingston on Saturday January 11th.
