OHL

London Knights 3 @ Barrie Colts 5
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 59 GP, 41-27-68, +38, 52 PIM

This game between two of the OHL’s best turned into a WWE match-up as the teams combined for 71 penalty minutes. Three Colts were ejected, as was a Barrie fan who got into it with the London bench. According to the London Free Press, fans were spitting on players and saying things "that should never be said to someone." You stay classy, Barrie. These are teenagers, after all.

Hutchings' goal came shorthanded – again. This was his 10th shorthanded goal of the year, which is six more than anyone else in the league. Bryan Cameron (Kings 3/07) is three goals shy of becoming the first Colt to reach 50 goals in a season since former Lightning prospect Sheldon Keefe, who scored 51 with Barrie (and Toronto) in 1998-99.
