Game Set Up - Kingston

Welcome back to the second half of the 2010 - 2011 season. The Ottawa 67's return to Ottawa today to prepare for Wednesday's home game against divisional rival Kingston Frontenacs.

The Ottawa 67's will be without the services of Adam Sedlak who is playing on the Czech National Team for the World Junior Hockey Championship (WJHC) in Buffalo and Sean Monahan who is playing for Team Ontario in the U-17 tournament taking place in Winnipeg.

Adding to the 67's lineup will be Ben Dubois who was claimed on waivers from Owen Sound just before the Christmas break. The 19 year old Belle River native has played 110 games in the OHL (46 for Windsor and 64 for Owen Sound) amassing 3 goals, 4 assists and clocking 114 PIMs during that time. From the Owen Sound press release
"As an organization we wish to thank Ben for his service. He was a good teammate and a quality citizen while in Owen Sound and we wish him nothing but the best.”, stated Attack General Manager Dale DeGray.

The acquisition of goaltender Michael Zador yesterday mean the Attack had 26 players on their active roster and needed to cut down numbers.

Some commentary from The NOOF. One has to wonder if he is a short-term (or longer) replacement for Jon Carnevale who missed a number of games before the break with a concussion.

Kingston will be missing both Gudbransons (Eric with Team Canada at the WJHC and Alex with Team Ontario at the U-17) and Philipp Grubauer who is playing on the German National Team at the WJHC.

The crazy weather in Europe and on the east coast of North America wrecked havoc on the travel plans of many. Wonder if Petr Mrazek got home in time to enjoy the holidays with his family before scrambling to get back to Ottawa.

Hope to see you at the game on Wednesday!
