– Tonight we will have a victor in the OHL Championship as the Barrie Colts and London Knights face off for a chance to win the J. Ross Robertson Cup in London.  The status of Jets prospect Mark Scheifele has been kept a tight secret after he left Game 6 in the 3rd period, returned with under a minute to play and then missed all of OT.

OHL site:  Mark Scheifele player of the week.  The Jets top offensive draft pick was selected player of the week for the second straight week as he continued to rip up the OHL playoffs.  While the accolade is nice, everyone is wondering if he will be healthy enough to play tonight.
