AURORA TIGERS (CENTRAL) OVERVIEW

The Aurora Tigers roared through the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League in 2006/07, fashioning a 44-4-1 record to finish a whopping 28 points ahead of the Stouffville Spirit in the OPJHL’s North Division. They also took home the league’s regular season championship, finishing with a seven-point cushion over runners-up Bowmanville and Wellington. Aurora spread around the scoring, as Andrew Favot (31-37-69, 16th) and Joey Martin (30-37-67, 20th) the only Tigers to finish in the top 20 of OPJHL scoring. Goaltender Tyler Gordon, who will appear is his second consecutive RBC Royal Bank Cup – he was the starter for the host Streetsville Derbys in 2006 – finished third in the league with a 2.00 goals against average, was second with a .932 save percentage and led the league with 27 wins in 33 games. The Tigers stumbled just once in the OPJHL playoffs, dropping two of the first four games in their second-round series against the Newmarket Hurricanes after a convincing four-game sweep of Buffalo in the opening round. They took care of the Hurricanes in six games, and knocked off Stouffville, Hamilton and Wellington in five games each to win the OPJHL Championship. At the Dudley Hewitt Cup, the Central Region championship, Aurora was the class of the tournament, going 3-0 in the round robin – outscoring the opposition 17-4 – before topping the SIJHL-champion Schreiber Diesels __ in the championship game. The Tigers will be in Prince George looking for their second RBC Royal Bank Cup in four years in 2007, to join the 2004 championship they won in Grande Prairie, AB.
