|The Plymouth Whalers are trying to make the OHL (Ontario Hockey League) Playoffs for the 23rd straight season!|
The OHL (Ontario Hockey League) regular season is winding down, and the Plymouth Whalers are attempting to qualify for the Playoffs for the 23rd consecutive season. The OHL Playoffs have included the participation of the Whalers since the 1991-1992, and the 22 year streak is an OHL record. The Whalers are currently holding on to the 8th seed to qualify for the Western Conference Playoffs, and are 7 points ahead of the Kitchener Rangers for the final spot. Although the Whalers have not mathematically clinched a postseason birth yet, the team has put themselves in good position to do so, with only 8 regular season games remaining.
If the OHL Playoffs started tonight, the Plymouth Whalers would play a 1st round, best of seven series against the Guelph Storm. The Storm are currently 14 points ahead of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds for the top overall seed in the Western Conference, and a first round matchup between the Whalers, and the Storm is almost inevitable.
The Plymouth Whalers are currently in 8th place in the OHL Western Conference standings with 54 points, and an overall record of 24-36 (6 shootout losses).
