The Petes handed Ottawa their first of only 4 regulation losses this season, defeating the 67’s 7-3 on September 23 and scoring 4 shorthanded goals.
Ottawa recently acquired potential Canadian Junior National Team netminder Michael DiPietro from the Windsor Spitfires last week. DiPietro is not expected to play, as Hockey Canada’s camp kicks off tomorrow in BC. Ottawa’s other goalie, Cedrick Andree, leads the league in wins with 19.
The most goals the Petes have scored in a first period is 3, and the most shorthanded goals they’ve scored in a game is 4. They did so against Ottawa in September. Chris Paquette, who is second in shorthanded goals in the OHL, scored 2 of his 4 shorties in that game.
Ottawa’s Marco Rossi leads league rookies in scoring with 13 goals, 14 assists, and 27 points in 23 games played.
Declan Chisholm leads Eastern Conference defencemen, and is fifth in the OHL, with 28 points in 29 games.
Ottawa has three players in the top 20 scorers – Felhaber (5th; 50 pts), Keating (10th; 42), and Chmelevski (18th; 37 pts). Felhaber leads the league in goals with 33, while Keating is third in assists with 30. Keating also leads the league in plus/minus with a +29 rating.
