Saginaw Spirit TicketsThe Saginaw Spirit has consistently been one of the top-ranked junior hockey teams in the Western Conference leg of the Ontario Hockey League. With such accomplishments, it should come as no surprise that young players on this team, aged 16 to 20, have used it as a pipeline to bigger and better things in the world of hockey. In fact, for each year of the Spirit’s existence — and even going back somewhat before 2002 to when the team was still known as the North Bay Centennials — it has been able to get at least one of its players drafted to the NHL. Perhaps strangely for a team in a Canadian hockey league, it is based out of Saginaw, Mich., though the team has a prior history in North Bay, Ontario and Saginaw is very close to the Canadian border.
