For the first time in franchise history, the Toronto Patriots are regular-season champions of the OJHL. The Patriots were a picture of consistency, only once losing back-to-back games in regulation while posting the two longest winning streaks of the season – a nine-game run from Dec. 20-Jan.19, and an eight-gamer from Oct. 6-28. Toronto was all about the offence, leading the OJHL in goals with 260, 36 more than second-place Aurora. Not surprisingly, the Patriots put three players in the top six of league scoring, led by scoring champ Andrew Petrucci (52-48—100). Between the pipes it was Tyler Fassl who carried the load, finishing second in minutes played (2369:22) and first in wins (31).
