The Oakville Blades won back to back series in five games respectively against the Brampton Admirals and the Buffalo Jr. Sabres. They were crowned  as the “West Division Champions.”

They’ll have to wait for their third round opponent the Markham Royals. The Markham Royals beat the Newmarket Hurricanes in seven games.

During the regular season, the Blades were 2-0 vs the Royals. The Blades won both meetings, 4-1 and 6-5. Oakville returns to the conference final for the first time since 2017, before that was the 2010-2011 campaign.

Due to arena scheduling and usage in Oakville the North/West Conference Final Schedule looks a little different then previous rounds.

In the 3rd Round the Royals host the first two games of the series at the Markham Centennial Centre. The centre is located at McCowan Road and Bullock Drive next to Centennial GO Station and Markville Mall.

  1. Friday evening, March 29th  at 7:30pm
  2. Sunday afternoon, March 31st at 1:30pm

Oakville hosts:

  1. Game three at 7pm on Tuesday, April 2nd
  2. Game four late at 8:30pm on Wednesday, April 3rd

The final three games of the series rotate as usual.

  1. Game five at 7 pm on Friday April 5th at 7pm
