The Windsor Spitfires made headlines when they secured Shane Wright from the Kingston Frontenacs in a blockbuster trade. Unfortunately, the deal didn't yield the desired results.

Spitfires Stunned in First Round

The Windsor Spitfires enjoyed a remarkable regular season, clinching the top seed in the OHL Western Conference. To bolster their championship aspirations, they brought in Shane Wright in a mega-deal that included multiple draft picks and two players.

With Wright in their ranks, the Spitfires seemed destined for a Memorial Cup run, and their first-round draw against the underperforming Kitchener Rangers appeared to be a favorable one.

The Rangers, plagued by coaching troubles, have been among the most lackluster teams in the OHL.

Yet, they defied the odds in this matchup and stunned the top-seeded Spitfires with a series sweep.

Since Wright was expected to lead the team, he has been facing considerable backlash online:

The Spitfires may be ruing their decision, but only time will tell if Kitchener can capitalize on this momentum and make a deep playoff run.
