This week on Around the OHL we look at the impact that the Miracle on Ice had on the Ontario Hockey League and we also talk with one of the best statisticians in hockey. Every young hockey player has options when it comes to their development. If you are good enough and fortunate enough to get to a high level, you might explore NCAA opportunities, you might choose major junior or you might be Auston Matthews and head for Switzerland. Following the Miracle on Ice on February 22, 1980 in which the United States upset the USSR at the Winter Olympics, the number of American-born players entering the Ontario Hockey League and being drafted by OHL teams began to increase significantly. London Knights colour commentator Jim Van Horne breaks down the numbers. Then we look at numbers in their purest forms with Geoffrey Brandow who provides fanatstic statistical breakdowns for games happening across the Canada Hockey League.
