Spencer was plus-2 and the Petes won Wednesday despite getting outshot 27-16. He’s not putting up a lot of points, but Paquette is doing his job in the faceoff circle for the Petes. Not bad considering he played on the wing for Niagara before the trade.

London Knights 4 @ Flint Firebirds 3 (SO)

Stephens scored for the seventh time in the last six games as London won in a shootout in Flint, 4-3. His shorthanded goal sent the game to overtime, and he also had the shootout winner. Not a bad night. It wasn’t enough for the Flint media to give him a game star, though.

Ingram stopped all 33 shots he faced, earning his third First Star award in the last 10 days. He now has a .10 lead on Carter Hart (Flyers) for first in the WHL in save percentage, though he trails Hart in GAA, 2.07 to 2.26. Hart has a sizeable lead in shutouts, 7-3. Ingram is third in the WHL in that category.

Somppi set a new career high for goals in a season with 14. His goal Sunday was of the highlight reel variety as he kicked a bouncing puck up above his waist, then bunted the puck into the net. Good stuff. Nico Hischier (2017) had two goals and three assists as he tries to overtake Nolan Patrick of Brandon for the No. 1 spot in this summer’s draft.
