This Week in Hounds Nation; Apr. 19/16

On behalf of the entire organization, we would like to thank you for what has been another very exciting season of Soo Greyhounds hockey. We appreciate the continued dedication and support from our Season Ticket Holders and look forward to having you back onboard next season!

As a Greyhounds fan, there is a lot to be excited about as we shift our focus onto the 2016-17 season. With about eighty percent of the roster eligible to return to the Greyhounds next season, the experience gained from this season’s playoff run is invaluable. Defeating a veteran laden team in the opening round and competing in every game with the top team in the Western Conference has certainly instilled confidence in our group. With another summer of training and development, we are incredibly excited about the direction this team is heading in.

Here’s what’s going on in Hounds Nation:

Season Ticket Renewal Deadline – Friday April 22 at 5:30PM
Essar Centre Box Office
The deadline to renew your season tickets for the 2016-17 OHL season is this Friday April 22 at 5:30PM at the Essar Centre Box Office. Season Ticket Holders can renew their seats in three ways: Payment in Full, opting into a payment plan (8-months; void cheque required), or placing a non-refundable deposit on your seats ($50 per seat). After the Friday April 22 deadline, the Greyhounds reserve the right to release any non-renewed seat for resale to the general public.
