Tonight’s game is the fifth of seven meetings between these East Division rivals. The Petes had their first win against the Bulldogs this season less than two weeks ago when rookie netminder Tye Austin recorded his first OHL win.
In the same game, Max Grondin recorded his first OHL hat trick which makes him Peterborough’s leading scorer against the Bulldogs, having played two less games against Hamilton than most of his teammates this season. For the ‘Dogs, Arthur Kaliyev leads the way with 2 goals and 7 assists in 4 games.
Although he’s not in the top ten of OHL defencemen points leaders, Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Nicolas Mattinen is third in d-men goal scoring with 9 goals in 28 games. He leads rearguards in shorthanded markers (2) and shots (108).
The Petes have won their last two Teddy Bear Toss games. Throw your teddies, toques, mitts, and more when the maroon and white score their first goal tonight!
