2014–15 

The 2013–14 OHL season is the 34th season of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), in which twenty teams played 68 games each according to the regular season schedule, from September 19, 2013 to March 17, 2014.

The first two outdoor games in OHL history were held this season, when the Saginaw Spirit, Windsor Spitfires, Plymouth Whalers, and London Knights played at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan as part of the Hockeytown Winter Festival on December 29.[1]

On March 11, 2014 Terry Trafford of the Saginaw Spirit, who had been missing for eight days, was found dead in his vehicle at a Wal-Mart in Saginaw, Michigan. His death was ruled a suicide as a result of self-inflicted asphyxiation.[2]

The playoffs began shortly after the end of the regular season on March 20, 2014, and will end in the middle of May 2014; the winning team is awarded the J. Ross Robertson Cup and a berth in the 2014 Memorial Cup held at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario. The London Knights qualified for the tournament as the host team.
