LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 0-1-1, E, 5 PIM (fighting vs. Blake Parlett)
Season Totals: 55 GP, 37-24-61, +36, 52 PIM

Unexpected stat of the night: This was Hutchings’ first assist since January 2nd and second since December 18. He had 34 assists last season. Hutchings is a frequent visitor to the scoresheet, so the low assist (lately) total is a bit of a surprise. This was a big road win for the Majors, who sit in second, (well) behind Barrie in the Eastern Conference. Those two are in a class by themselves in the conference.

He scored the game’s opening two goals, the second of which was shorthanded. He leads the league in shorties with eight – twice as many as anyone else in the league. He is tied for third in the league in goals with likely 2010 Top-2 pick Tyler Seguin of Plymouth.

Season Totals: 37 GP, 7-12-19, -1, 12 PIM
