I stated in my most recent article here at TheHockeyGuys that I would try and get more pieces up for you all to provide you with better OHL coverage, so that’s what I intend to do. Here’s the latest news pieces, notes and scuttlebutt from around the OHL.
Greg McKegg could be on the move
Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Greg McKegg could be on the move to a contending team sooner than later. The Erie Otters are currently sitting dead last in the OHL with a 3-24-1 record in 28 games. They’re dead last in the OHL in goals for, and dead last in goals against. They’re also 11 points behind the Kingston Frontenacs, who are second last in the OHL, and 23 points out of the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
There’s no doubt they’re a rebuilding team, so the talk is they will move their best player in McKegg for a ‘future orientated package’.

If Toronto Maple Leafs president and general manager Brian Burke is to make a trade, it's going to have to happen soon.
That's because Burke's self-imposed holiday roster freeze goes into effect Friday afternoon at 12:59PM as the Leafs get set to take on the Washington Capitals later that night.
As far as the chances of Burke actually making a trade, the Leafs&...
The Toronto Maple Leafs beat the New York Rangers 4-2 last night. Dion Phaneuf of the Maple Leafs dropped one of the biggest hits of the year on Ranger Mike Sauer. Sauer's helmet went flying and he dropped like a bad habit. He was somehow able to get up and off the ice on his own power. This is precisely why Hockey is a mans game. Big props to both players on the...
In his tenure with the Maple Leafs, Brian Burke has always instituted the Christmas holiday trade freeze much earlier than his fellow general managers, which has been a source of criticism with a team that has previously been at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings.
With the Leafs currently enjoying their most consistent start since the pre-lockout Pat Quinn days, there...
It was still October when I picked Phil Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs as the early season MVP. While Kessel remains the top scorer in the league, he has not been the best player in the league so far this year. I would give that award to Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks. Toews is three points behind Kessel but is a much better defensive player. Toews is a potential...
Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday that the hockey club has assigned forward Joe Colborne to the Toronto Marlies.
Colborne, 21, has playe...
Monday night at Madison Square Garden was near perfection for the Toronto Maple Leafs, whose 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers ended a two game losing streak and provided a nice capper to the annual Father-Son excursion, as the playerâs dads watched a outdoor team practice in Central Park on Sunday and took in the game last night clad in their sonâs jerseys.
The Dale Hunter Era has begun. Now you can walk into the Verizon Center Team Store on Friday before the Caps meet the Toronto Maple Leafs and walk out with a piece of Hunter’s first NHL triumph.
