Riley Damiani and Sean Durzi have always clicked. They grew up on the same Mississauga block and played street hockey almost every day in the summer. In the winter, they'd sit side by side glued to the TV set on Saturday nights watching Hockey Night In Canada and have fierce... Continue reading

It's time to dust off the tuxedo. And for me, that means a pair of jeans and a shirt, maybe even one with a collar. It's awards time here at the OHL 21. I call them the Brownies. It's a prestigious honour just to be nominated. Not as nice as... Continue reading
