OHL Wins In Canada-Russia Challenge

Last night the OHL played the first of two games against the Russian Selects in Barrie (link).

The OHL was very strong --- noticeably different from the previous QMJHL games. Good puck control, good fore-checking, strong defensive work. Of course, having the likes of Bolland-LON, Perry-LON, Pouliot-SUD, Richards-KIT, etc., helps.

Colbert played very well. He was strong and steady in his end. He didn’t look out of place with the other talent, which was good to see. He's back in Ottawa for the game tonight against Oshawa.

The next game will be Monday, November 29 in Mississauga.
