Rossi, Quinn focused on giving Ottawa 67’s another OHL title shot

Marco Rossi and Jack Quinn have some unfinished business with the Ottawa 67’s.

Ottawa led the Ontario Hockey League with a 50-win regular season in 2018-19, then won 14 straight playoff games to move two victories away from the Memorial Cup. But, after being up 2-0 in the OHL final, Ottawa would go on to lose four straight against the eventual champion Guelph Storm, ending the season prematurely for a team that seemed destined for a championship.

“Last year was really disappointing, it was really tough. I sometimes still think about how we should have won,” Rossi said. “This year we are younger kids but we have a really good chance again.”

Despite losing some talented veterans in the summer, Ottawa is right back atop the OHL standings a third of the way into the season, and is currently ranked No. 3 in the 60-team Canadian Hockey League.

The club is riding a seven-game win streak and Rossi and Quinn, both 18, are a major reason for the early success in 2019-20.

“Obviously you get that close and come up short it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth so we want another crack at that challenge,” Quinn said.

“The team we had last year, the guys we had on the team and playing in those playoff games, you get that experience and learn a lot of things.”
