How to Support the Oshawa Generals
Before the world was shaken by COVID-19, the Oshawa Generals were putting together a solid season. 3rd in their conference, 8th league-wide, and with a playoff berth in sight, leading scorer Philip Tomasino and the rest of the Generals had to pack it up early and forfeit a promising season. Although this was a disheartening end to the season, there are still a variety of ways that the Gen's Nation can support their team as they look to regroup for the 2020-2021 season and bid to host the 2021 Memorial Cup.
Buying Generals Merchandise
One of the premier ways to show support for your team is by showing off their logo wherever you are! Attached to Tribute Communities Centre is the Oshawa Generals official merchandise store, where you can find everything including jerseys, shirts, pucks, scarves, and more! If going inside a store isn't possible, the Generals store is online and ready to browse! Check out the Generals branded face masks so you can show your Generals pride wherever you go!

Re-Watch Games On Television Or At A Bar
With bars reopening throughout Durham Region, there's no better way to watch and support your Generals than with some friends (socially distanced, of course) at a bar. Re-live some of the most exciting Generals games of the year, we'd recommend any of their 44 wins this year! If going to a bar is still out of the comfort zone, then watching some highlights at home would be a great alternative and is a great way to support the team during their cancelled season!
Here is a list of places to tune in during game time or to watch highlights:
