Steelheads Finished for Season

1 Apr

With the Mississauga Steelheads’ season ending in dramatic fashion the sting of sudden death still lingers. It wasn’t as easy as it appeared it would be after the opening game blow-out, but the Oshawa Generals still managed a four-game sweep in the first round of the OHL playoffs.

Barwell Shoots vs Oshawa Generals – Eastern Conference Quarter Final

Despite falling in four straight, the team couldn’t have given anything more, taking the Eastern Conference Champs to four overtime periods in three games to close out the series.

It was a quick turn-around for the players, following Thursday evening’s loss the team was back at the Hershey Centre Friday collecting equipment, conducting exit meetings and saying goodbyes as the boys prepared to head back to their hometowns and a summer of training.

From the selection of Sean Day, Jesse Barwell and Austin Gerhart in the first two rounds of the 2013 OHL Draft, Jacob Graves’ dramatic OT winner in the season’s first game, the dramatic playoff-making home-and-home with the Niagara Icedogs, and finally the playoffs, it was an exciting season for the young Steelheads leaving the team and its fans with much to look forward to next season.
