TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – WHITBY WILDCATS
It was all Whitby in the ETA this season, as the Wildcats cruised to top spot in the East Division with a 23-point cushion over Oshawa and finished nine points up on Markham for first overall. The key stretch for the defending OMHA champions came from Oct. 28 to Jan. 5, when they rattled off 17 wins in a row to distance themselves from their competition. Overall, the Wildcats had 24 wins and a tie in its last 26 games, and lost just once against East Division competition all season. Whitby was far and away the highest scoring team in the ETA, turning on the red light 197 times, 74 more than Oshawa. The Wildcats had six players finish in the top nine of ETA scoring, led by Liam Grande’s 55 points. The defence also did its part, allowing just 51 goals in 36 games, good for No. 2 in the league, led by the one-two goaltending punch of Mitchell Ewing and Matthieu Ouellet.
