D Slater Koekkoek , PBO: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Third Star*
Season totals: 22 GP, 3-15-18, -14, 18 PIM
Koekkoek earned the game’s Third Star for a 1+1 night as the Petes halted their 7-game losing streak with a win over Ottawa. Koekkoek has tied last year’s point total of 18, but in four fewer games. As has been well documented, Koekkoek’s season ended last year after a shoulder injury at the end of November. With the win, the Petes pulled within one point of the 67’s for second-last place in the league.
