The Woodstock Slammers are Fred Page Cup Champions and will now play in the RBC Cup.
The Slammers, Maritime Junior A Hockey League champions, defeated the Nepean Raiders 3-2 at the Kanata Recreation Centre in Kanata, Ontario to earn a berth in the national championship. They’ll join the Soo Thunderbirds, Portage Terriers, Penticton Vees, and the host Humboldt Broncos at the RBC Cup.
The Slammers feature Sea Dogs prospect Mackenzie Brown, training camp attendee Philip Fife, and former Sea Dog Andrew Langan.
Woodstock’s first game is this Saturday against the Broncos.
Good stuff from Patrick King over at Sportsnet.ca last week. He has a column discussing two possible dynasties possibly colliding at the Memorial Cup. Possibly.
“It's still a hard trophy to win once, let alone twice,” writes King. “The Sea Dogs and Oil Kings, however, are seemingly on a collision course which could determine not just one dynasty, but two.”
"Our perspective doesn't deal with dynasties -- it doesn't deal with repeating right now," said Mike Kelly. "Our perspective is dealing with today."
