Congrats To The Windsor Spitfires

from Adam Kimelman of NHL.com,

Keyed by a relentless offensive effort, the Windsor Spitfires made history, winning their second straight Memorial Cup title with a 9-1 victory against the host Brandon Wheat Kings on Sunday at Westman Place.

Taylor Hall, NHL Central Scouting’s second-rated North American prospect for the 2010 Entry Draft, had a goal and 2 assists to finish as the tournament’s leading scorer with 5 goals and 9 points. He became the first player in the 92-year history of Canada’s national junior championship tournament to win consecutive MVP awards.

The Spitfires also became the eighth team ever to win back-to-back titles, and the first since the Kamloops Blazers in 1994-95.
