Memory Lane: Whalers



















































     It's been almost two years since the Plymouth Whalers played their final game at the ice rink formerly known as Compuware Arena.  The Whalers were sold, and the team was relocated to the city of Flint.  The Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center is home to the Flint Firebirds.  Compuware Arena is now known as the USA Hockey Arena, and is home to the USA NTDP (National Team Development Program).
     The Plymouth Whalers were a successful franchise in the Ontario Hockey League.  The team reached the OHL Playoffs every season from 1997-1998 through 2013-2014.  The Whalers won the OHL Playoffs, and hoisted the J. Ross Robertson Cup during the 2006-2007 season.  Several former Whalers are now stars in the NHL including Tyler Seguin, Vince Trocheck, Tom Wilson, and Rickard Rakell.
     I miss the Plymouth Whalers, and I also miss the OHL (Ontario Hockey League).  I miss going to Whalers games, and watching future stars of the NHL (National Hockey League) compete at a high level.  I miss reading the lineup cards, and following the OHL stats, and standings.  I miss watching Whalers games on Comcast Network TV 900, and listening to Pete Krupsky's analysis of the OHL players.  I miss the friendly people at the arena, and the short commute to and from the games.  The Plymouth Whalers may be gone, but the memories made at Compuware Arena will continue to live on the Mitten State Sports Report.
