Nick Robertson and Semyon Der-Arguchintsev led the way for the Petes the last time these conference rivals faced off with 1 goal and 1 assist each.
North Bay’s Luke Moncada leads the OHL in short handed goals with 3. He is on his team’s longest point streak at 4 games.
The Petes will be without Mason McTavish and J.R. Avon and the Battalion without Liam Arnsby who are all taking part in the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge this week in Medicine Hat, AB and Swift Current, SK.
Former Pete Nick Grima will face his former club for the first time as a member of the Battalion since being acquired by North Bay from the Sarnia Sting earlier this season.
The most saves a Battalion netminder has made in a game this season – 41 – was against the Petes on October 3.
