The Greyhounds had a short Pre-Season schedule leading up to the 2018-19 season which featured a home-and-home series with Northern Ontario Rivals the Sudbury Wolves. The first game featured a pair of goals from Greyhound sophomore forward Zack Trott as the Hounds edged the wolves 4-3 in a shootout road win on Thursday, September 13th.
