I want to welcome everybody to the launching of this new blog and podcast, OHL Pucks and Stripes. Our goal is to keep you informed with the latest news and interviews from the OHL, with a main focus on the American teams in the OHL.
I'm Keith Dotson and I used to run the Whalers on the Moon blog and podcast. This past March, the Whalers played their last game in Plymouth and I was left without a team to cover. After taking some time for myself, I came to the conclusion that while the fact of not having a local team does suck, I am not going to let it keep me down.
I grew to love the OHL and in the past decade it became a huge part of my life. I met incredible players and staff, and happened to make some great friends along the way. Plymouth might be gone, but there still needs to be a voice for the U.S. markets in the Ontario Hockey League.
In the coming months I will hope to provide more details about the upcoming podcast. The first major event that will be covered is the NHL Entry Draft tomorrow. I hear some McDavid kid is going first overall.
It's going to be a busy weekend, keep checking this site for news updates and photos from the NHL Entry Draft.
