The 67’s went winless last week, dropping four home games. The week started with a 7-3 loss to the Niagara IceDogs (Mar. 14), where Alex Johnston appeared in his 150th career OHL game. The 67’s were edged out 5-4 by the Kingston Frontenacs on Wednesday night (Mar.16), a game that saw Alex Johnston get his first OHL goal. A pair of low-scoring defeats against the Hamilton Bulldogs wrapped up the week, 3-2 and 3-1 (Mar. 19-20). 2022 NHL draft-eligible Vinzenz Rohrer impressed, scoring five goals in the four games.

The team plays just twice this week, games against the Peterborough Petes (Mar. 25) and Barrie Colts (Mar. 27), to wrap up its seven-game homestand. The 67’s – currently seventh in the Eastern Conference – sit just six points ahead of ninth-place Sudbury in the playoff picture, with the top eight qualifying. Nine games remain in the regular season.
