WHALERS' AUSTIN LEVI GRATEFUL TO SIGN NHL CONTRACT:  The Observer and Eccentric's Tim Smith's profiles Plymouth defenseman Austin Levi:

Ever since defenseman Austin Levi has played for the Plymouth Whalers, he's been witness to a string of teammates making their way to contracts with National Hockey League teams.

 At the top of that list, of course, is Boston Bruins standout forward Tyler Seguin, who starred two years for Plymouth and last season won a Stanley Cup his rookie year in the NHL.

Now, the 20-year-old Levi has the chance to have his name added to the list as he inked a three-year, entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL. Whalers' goalie Scott Wedgewood subsequently signed a deal with the New Jersey Devils

THE OTHER SIDE:  Tony Saxon of the Guelph Mercury looks at the Guelph side of things going into tonight;'s game:

GUELPH — Guelph Storm coach Scott Walker knows his team is in for quite a reception when it heads to Plymouth Tuesday for Game 3 of their opening round playoff series.

 Shocking just about everyone by winning the first two games of the best-of-seven series with the Plymouth Whalers, Walker doesn’t think there’s any chance of his team’s confidence turning into cockiness.

“Make no mistake about it, we’re going down there and it’s going to be even harder,” Walker said after a brief team meeting Monday afternoon at the Sleeman Centre.
