Make that four goals in four games for the Lightning’s 2016 first rounder, Brett Howden. The Moose Jaw captain was one of four Warriors to score in the first two periods as they built a 4-0 lead.

Cirelli and Spencer made their season debuts after some preseason time in Tampa, and Cirelli’s Gens beat Spencer’s Petes, 4-1. Cirelli, Oshawa’s captain and clear leader, scored his first of the season. Oshawa was rebuilding last year and should be fairly solid this year. Spencer is a leader for Peterborough and should improve on his modest offensive numbers next to Dominik Masin last year. The Petes beat the Gens 4-1 on Wednesday when both Cirelli and Spencer were in Florida.

Scouting Comments:
"He was one of the top-3 goalies on our list. We had him ranked very high. He's a player that our goalie coach Dave Alexander from Syracuse went to work with him a couple weeks ago at Hockey Canada's goalie camp, he's one of the goalies invited to Canada's World Junior Team - one of four goalkeepers. Had a tremendous season in Kamloops, gave them a chance to win every night and Dave was very complimentary coming out of the goalie camp about Ingram, and confirmed a lot of things that we've seen in him." -- Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray
