It doesn’t get any easier for the Oshawa Generals.
The club, losers of four straight after a recent run against some of the league’s best teams, is in Ottawa tonight to face the 13-1 67’s, the top ranked squad in the OHL and #4 in the nation.
The Generals return home Sunday to play the 4-8-1 Hamilton Bulldogs, the defending league champs who admittedly are having a rougher start to the season than Oshawa (5-7-2). Hamilton was also the last team the Generals beat, a 3-2 win back on October 28.
A big jump in offence would help the Generals. Stuart Rolofs (5-8-13) is tied for 60th in league scoring and Calum Ritchie (6-6-12), Cam Butler (5-7-12), Ryan Gagnier (3-8-11) and Lleyton Moore (1-10-11) are the only other players in the top 100.
Brennan Othmann of Flint – who hails from Pickering – is second in OHL scoring with 24 points, six behind Ty Voight of Sarnia.
