The Guelph Storm faithful have had their say, and the 2018-19 OHL championship squad has been voted the best in franchise history.
The latest league champion topped the 2003-04 Storm championship team with 76.2% of the vote on Twitter and 66% of the vote at guelphstorm.com in the final round of a contest spread out over the past several months. The 1997-98 OHL champions and 2013-14 champions were also semi-finalists.
The 2019 OHL champions were led by OHL Playoff MVP Nick Suzuki who set a new franchise record with 42 points (16-26–42) in the postseason. Other prominent names included veteran captain Isaac Ratcliffe, star defenders Dmitri Samorukov and Sean Durzi as well as veteran forwards MacKenzie Entwistle and Nate Schnarr.
The contest was conducted in celebration of the Storm’s 30th anniversary season set to get underway in 2020-21.
