Windsor repeats as OHL champions
WATCH: Henrique interview at '09 rookie camp
One year after winning the first Memorial Cup in franchise history, the Windsor Spitfires will be looking to make it two in a row.

Windsor repeated as Ontario Hockey League champions on Tuesday, completing a four-game sweep of the Barrie Colts with a 6-2 victory.

Spitfires’ center Adam Henrique notched his 20th goal in 19 playoff games and was named the winner of the Wayne Gretzky 99 Trophy given to the OHL’s postseason MVP.

Henrique, 20, was New Jersey’s fourth choice, 82nd overall, in the 2008 Entry Draft. The native of Brantford, Ontario, collected career highs with 38 goals and 39 assists for 77 points over 54 games in 2009-10, his fourth season of juniors. His 20 playoff tallies tied him for the OHL lead.

Last year, Henrique scored in overtime to clinch Windsor’s first berth in the Memorial Cup final since 1988. Henrique potted a goal versus Kelowna to seal a 4-1 victory in the 2009 title game.

The Spitfires are captained by 6-4, 210-lb. defenseman Harry Young, who was the Devils’ eighth choice, 202nd overall, in 2008. Their leading scorer is Taylor Hall, who is projected to go first overall at this year’s Entry Draft.

Windsor became the first team to clinch a spot in the four-team, 10-day Memorial Cup tournament, which features the three major junior champions – OHL, QMJHL, and WHL – plus a team from the host city.

The Moncton Wildcats own a 2-1 series lead over the Saint John Sea Dogs in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League finals, while the Calgary Hitmen need one win to close out a sweep of the Tri-City Americans in the Western Hockey League finals.

This year’s Memorial Cup begins Friday, May 14, in Brandon, Manitoba. The opening match will see Windsor take on the Brandon Wheat Kings and Devils prospect Alexander Urbom

In his first season of major junior, Urbom was second among Wheat Kings defenseman in scoring with 12 goals and 21 assists in 66 games. He added four goals, three assists in 15 postseason appearances.

The 6-4, 215-lb. Stockholm native was New Jersey’s third choice, 73rd overall, in 2009.
