NA Juniors Game Night: 9-27-12
Ontario Hockey League
Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Barrie Colts 4 (SO)
D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 3 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 4 PIM
Barrie scored with 30 seconds left in the game to send the contest to overtime. Lightning prospect defenseman Jake Dotchin was not on the ice for the game-tying goal. Jets first rounder (2011) Mark Scheifele, who “should” be in an NHL camp right now, had a goal and an assist for Barrie, but did not convert his shootout attempt on Rangers pick Jordan Bennington. Bennington, as longtime Bolt prospects followers will remember, was a tandem-mate of former Lightning prospect Michael Zador when Owen Sound won the OHL championship. Zador, who was drafted ahead of Jaroslav Janus in the 2010 draft, appears to be out of hockey now.
Erie Otters 5 @ Peterborough Petes 1
D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (cross-checking)
Season totals: 3 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 4 PIM
The Petes were coming off a road win and played well, outshooting the Otters 48-25, but were stymied by Columbus second rounder Oscar Dansk (pictured). The import player from Sweden was named first star of the game.
