Good Afternoon Hounds Fans,
After a season of truly historic proportions, the Greyhounds enter into the final weekend of the regular season.
Over the previous sixty-six games, the Hounds have been able to set the franchise record in points (113) and are tied for the most wins (54: 1984-85 & 2014-15).
With two games remaining, the Hounds will be looking to build on momentum and set more regular season milestones heading into the 2018 OHL Playoffs.
The schedule is set for the first two home games of the first round, and all eyes are set on what’s to come in Sault Ste. Marie!
