#PetesRising: Peterborough Petes Capture First OHL East Division Championship Since 2005-06

The Peterborough Petes shut-out the Hamilton Bulldogs 4-0 in front of 3,817 fans at the Memorial Centre Thursday night (March 16th) to clinch first place overall in the OHL's Eastern Conference.

This is the first time since 2005-06 that the Petes have captured the OHL East Division championship.

The Petes—who have been one of the hottest teams in the OHL since the end of November—now hold home ice advantage through at least the first three rounds of the playoffs.

The 2017 playoff schedule will be released early next week, with possible first round opponents including Ottawa, Niagara, Sudbury and North Bay. Tickets are available now for playoff home games one and two.
