Hunter Jones is expected to get the start for the Petes after being returned to Peterborough from Canada’s National Junior Team Selection Camp yesterday. He leads all OHL netminders in wins with 19.
Brett Neumann, who leads Oshawa in scoring, is second in the OHL in shots on goal with 134 in 27 games.
Hudson Wilson, who has 9 points in his last 9 games, is fourth in plus/minus rating among league defencemen at +19.
The Generals are the only team with two goalies ranked in the OHL’s top ten netminders. Zachary Paputsakis is ranked sixth, while Andrew MacLean is ranked ninth.
With three goals last night, Mason McTavish overtook Oshawa’s Oliver Suni in rookie scoring to sit in second with 24 points. He is just 1 point out of the lead, currently held by Shane Wright (25 points).
The Generals will be without import Nico Gross who is currently attending Switzerland’s national junior team camp.
