Plymouth's season over - Storm take Game 6

The Plymouth Whalers dropped Game 6 to the Guelph Storm Saturday night on the road and in the process saw their season conclude as Guelph won their Western Conference semifinal series.

In the 4-3 loss, Jared Boll, John Armstrong and Tom Sestito scored for Plymouth, but Mike McLean's goal at 16:58 of the third period was the game-winner for Guelph, who advance to face the London Knights in the conference finals.

Justin Peters finished with 31 saves for the Whalers.

Overagers Mike Letizia, captain John Vigilante and Derek Merlini (pictured) played their final OHL game last weekend as well. Vigilante has signed an NHL contract with the Nashville Predators, while Letizia and Merlini are free agents.

Tomorrow night is the team's annual banquet at Ginopolis on the Ice inside the Compuware Sports Arena.

The annual OHL Priority Selection draft takes place May 6 via the Internet. The Whalers have the 13th overall pick in the first round.
