The Memorial Cup champion Windsor Spitfires returned home Monday to a hero’s welcome and a “parade of champions” celebrated by thousands of adoring fans in the city’s core.
The Spitfires became the first team since the 1994-95 Kamloops Blazers to win their second straight Canadian Hockey League title with a 9-1 rout of the Brandon Wheat Kings on Sunday. Windsor, which made history last spring by becoming the first team ever to win the title after dropping the first two games of the event, took a decidedly different road to the title this time around, finishing the season on a 12-game winning streak, including four straight wins in the Memorial Cup.
Riding two to a car, players rode down the Ouellette Avenue parade route before joining fans for a rally at Dieppe Gardens, located on the bank of the Detroit River.
