    Jason Williams and his journey from the OHL, to NHL walk-on and eventual Stanley Cup Champ

    A former Peterborough Pete, Jason Williams would go on to play 11 seasons in the NHL, most notable with the Detroit Red Wings. Williams was a part of the Red Wings team that won the Stanley Cup in 2002. Williams shares some stories playing alongside future hall of famers, and some other memorable moments along the way.

    Williams talks about how he bet on himself as his junior career wrapped up in Peterborough, and that led to an eventual pro contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

    After retiring, Williams has spent the last three season coaching, and has helped lead the Elgin-Middlsex Chiefs to a Minor Midget Alliance Championship this year. He talks about his transition to coaching, as he prepares for the OHL Cup.

    By the Numbers

    By the Numbers

    This week on Around the OHL we look at the impact that the Miracle on Ice had on the Ontario Hockey League and we also talk with one of the best statisticians in hockey.

    Every young hockey player has options when it comes to their development. If you are good enough and fortunate enough to get to a high level, you might explore NCAA opportunities, you might choose major junior or you might be Auston Matthews and head for Switzerland.

    Following the Miracle on Ice on February 22, 1980 in which the United States upset the USSR at the Winter Olympics, the number of American-born players entering the Ontario Hockey League and being drafted by OHL teams began to increase significantly. London Knights colour commentator Jim Van Horne breaks down the numbers.

    Then we look at numbers in their purest forms with Geoffrey Brandow who provides fanatstic statistical breakdowns for games happening across the Canada Hockey League.

    Shane Wright and a closer look at the playoff picture

    Shane Wright and a closer look at the playoff picture

     On this episode hosts Jake Jeffrey and Mike Stubbs are catching up with Kingston Frontenacs forward Shane Wright, who has done some very exceptional things in the league since he was granted exceptional status, allowing him to be drafted as a 15-year-old. His play this season has many hockey fans already looking forward to the 2022 NHL draft, where Wright will be one of, if not the top pick.

    The guys also check in with Victor Findlay, who looks at come recent OHL grads playing university hockey in Canada as the USPORTS playoffs are right in the thick of things.  Findlay also calls games for the Mississauga Steelheads, so he sheds some light on the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, and how it should be smooth sailing for the Ottawa 67’s.

    Speaking of playoffs, Mike and Jake shares their thoughts on which path to the finals they would prefer, a relatively easy first three rounds where the teams wasn’t really battle tested, but is healthy for the finals. Or, a team that may be a bit beat up, but is operating on full cylinders after getting tested earlier in the playoffs.
