When RSJ, wrote the IceDogs “are a young team” – that is in fact accurate. He’s not referring to the average age of the players on the roster, but rather the average age of the players that actually played in each one of their 17 games. They have played as many as 11 rookies in a game – and on most nights it’s 10 or 9 rookies.

The statistics provided by elite prospects – mean nothing. To accurate calculate the average, you have to calculate the age of the players in each teams line up through the first 17 games. I don’t know anything about the western teams, but the IceDogs have been the youngest team in the East this year on nightly basis.

As always Blacksox... Your research kills any piddling little research into hockey that I do... lol

Keep it up man...

Unfortunately, the OHL does not provide the average age of a team each game. It would be an interesting stat though! However, I can tell you that I personally follow this closely, because it does interests me and I often use that research in my weekly posts.

For the eastern teams, here are the number of 04s and 05s rookies used on any given night – not 100% accurate but pretty close…

Barrie: 5
Mississauga: 5
Oshawa: 5
Hamilton: 5-6
Ottawa: 7
NB: 7-8
Petes: 7-8
Sudbury: 7-8

Along with using the highest number of rookies (9-10) most nights (and one time 11), the IceDogs also made themselves even younger – either by injury or healthy scratches - playing games with only 1 or 2 0As and scratching their 02s and 03s in favour of the 04s and 05s.

It was a definitely a shift in plans, that I did not expect before the start of the season, but having said that - there is no reason why this team cannot be a competitive .500 team. What is happening - is unacceptable!
