SN'S MEMORIAL CUP PREVIEW
The other teams participating in the event are the Ontario Hockey League champion Owen Sound Attack and Western Hockey League winners Kootenay Ice.
Most “exports” claim that this year’s tournament is as wide open as it has ever been. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see either of the teams walking away with junior hockey’s Holy Grail next week.
