The Ottawa Jr. 67s quest for the OHL Cup got off to a strong start on Wednesday with a pair of wins over Team Northern Ontario and the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs, and leading the way were a trio of players with east end connections.

Former Cumberland Jr. Grad and Orleans Minor Hockey Association product Cole Carter had a goal and two assists in their opening game against Northern Ontario. He followed that up with a pair of assists in a 4-3 win against Hamilton in Game 2.

Former Gloucester Ranger William Bitten also had five points on the first day of the tournament with two goals and three assists, while former Blackburn Hockey Association product Alexandre Way had a goal and an assist against Northern Ontario and added another goal and an assist against the Bulldogs.

Fellow Blackburn Hockey Association product Patrick Steskie played between the pipes for the Jr. 67s in the win over Northern Ontario.

Other former Gloucester Rangers on the Jr. 67s roster include Etienne Vivash, Keenan Reynolds, Jacob Kendrick, Joey Larcher, Cole Downer and Alexandre Dionne.

Bitten, Way, Vivash, Downer and Larcher have been playing together since Major Atom AA. Kendrick and Dionne joined them the following year in Minor Peewee.

With two early wins under their belts the Jr. 67s will be looking to keep their unbeaten record intact when they face the North York Rangers on Thursday in the March Break tournament.

The Jr. 67s are hoping to do something no other Ontario East Minor Hockey League team has done in the 12 year history of the OHL Cup -- make it to the final.

After finishing in first place in the regular season standings, the Jr. 67s came up short in their quest for the OEMHL Championship against the second place Ottawa Valley Titans who are also in the hunt for the OHL Cup.
