After a rare two game losing streak on the road, the Greyhounds returned home with Katchouk and Raddysh leading the 6-4 victory over the Spitfires. Katchouk and Raddysh were instrumental in the Soo gaining a 4-0 early lead. Katchouk opened the scoring just 2:45 into the game, and then Raddysh scored his 20th of the season about 1:45 later. Early in the 2nd, Raddysh and linemate Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) earned helpers on Jack Kopacka’s (ANA, 2016 4th round pickd) goal, and Katchouk netted his 2nd of the game and 33rd of the season on the power play to give the Soo the 4-0 lead.

But the Spitfires would battle back behind the play of Jake Smith (undrafted) and Luke Kutkevicius (undrafted), as Windsor outscored the Soo 4-2 in the second half of the game. Tim Gettinger (NYR, 2016 5th round pick) scored twice for the Greyhounds in the 3rd, including the empty netter with one second left as the Spitfires were pressing for the equalizer. Frost tallied 3 assists for the Soo, setting up three of the team’s first four goals.

The mojo in the newly retired jersey of Steven Stamkos hanging in the rafters of the Progressive Auto Sales Arena could not be contained as Jordan Kyrou (STL, 2016 2nd round pick) and Adam Ruzicka (CGY, 2017 4th round pick) led the Sarnia Sting in doing what no team in nearly thirty games has been able to do – defeat the Soo in regulation. The first game for Taylor Raddysh since being named OHL and CHL Player-of-the-Week was a disaster along with linemates Boris Katchouk and Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick), all three held pointless by the Sting and each slapped with a -3 rating. One of the few bright spots for the Greyhounds was Hayden Verbeek (undrafted), nephew of Pat Verbeek, who scored in the 3rd to tie the game at 3-3 before Kyrou and Ruzicka combined to sink the Soo’s regulation win streak.
