OHL

Philadelphia Flyers pick Nick Cousins, who is facing a sexual assault charge, was not selected to Team OHL for next month's Subway Super Series despite being third in. The league says the criminal charge has nothing to do with the exclusion. (Sault Star)

The Guelph Storm are not planning to call up anyone to replace injured forwards Hunter Garlent and Patrick Watling. (Saxon On The Storm)

Wait, Grigorenko is pretty good? (Die By The Blade)

Something has to give in Thursday's Moncton-Gatineau matchup, since each team is scuffling. (Le Droit)
