Ottawa 67’s 6 @ Peterborough Petes 3

D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM
Season totals: 36 GP, 6-21-27, -26, 28 PIM

Slater Koekkoek extended his point streak to four games with a late assist in Saturday night’s loss to Ottawa. The game was not as close as the final score indicates as Ottawa held a 5-1 lead early in the second period. The Petes were able to put 51 shots on net, however. Koekkoek was on the ice for four of the 67’s goals, but only had a direct effect in two of the goals against. His play in his own end was active, but sporadic. The commentators during the game mentioned how the d-corps of the Petes had trouble executing the game plan and had several bouts of miscommunication. Offensively, Koekkoek was solid and efficient, making several deep rushes and long passes to set up teammates. He looks to rush the puck a lot and has the skill and wheels to do so. It seems obvious he has the green light to rush it whenever he wants. He plays like a player who is expected to provide most of the offense for the club. The OHL trade deadline is coming up and Koekkoek’s name has been in rumors, though with another year of junior in his future, it’s unlikely that a player of his skill and age would be dealt. London is always looking to deal and playing in London with the Hunters would do wonders for Koekkoek’s development.

Erie Otters 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 6

D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-3-3, +1, 2 PIM
Season totals: 33 GP, 2-11-13, +4, 37 PIM

This was Dotchin’s second 3-point game in his career – he had a goal and two assists against Peterborough last February. He now has 13 points in 33 games and is on pace to set a new career high for goals, assists, and points in a season (3-16-19 in 2011-12).

Peterborough Petes 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2

D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 35 GP, 6-20-26, -23, 28 PIM

Slater Koekkoek scored his sixth goal of the season late in the third on the power play to put the game away for Peterborough, who beat Kingston on the road, 5-2. Koekkoek, who hit the post minutes before he scored, slid into the high slot from the right point and one-timed a pass from Steven Trojanovic (undrafted) through Kingston goalie Mike Morrison (undrafted), who played for the Petes last year. The puck trickled over the line before being swept back into play, but the referee ruled it a goal. The OHL offices in Toronto took more than eight minutes to confirm it was a goal.

Note: Prospects Nikita Kucherov (Rouyn-Noranda, QMJHL), Artem Sergeev (Val-d'Or, QMJHL), and Tanner Richard (Guelph, OHL) are participating in the 2013 World Junior Championships and are therefore not with their respective club teams.
