VIDEO: Colts, Battalion set to tangle in season-opener

Battalion coach says Barrie players have 'probably marked their calendar' ahead of tonight's game following last season's playoff ouster

The Barrie Colts will open the 2023-24 Ontario Hockey League season tonight at Sadlon Arena by hosting the North Bay Battalion. 

The two teams met in the second round of the OHL playoffs this past spring, where the Troops pulled out a 4-3 series win.

Thursday night's game marks the start of a back-to-back between the two Central Division rivals. The two teams will be back at it again on Friday night at North Bay Memorial Gardens. Both games have a 7 p.m. puck drop.
