DeAngelo was first star, scoring twice and adding an assist to extend his point streak to 18 games. The streak is the second-longest active streak in the league behind Connor McDavid’s 24-game streak. It’s the longest streak by a defenseman this season in the OHL. DeAngelo also set a new career high for points in a season tonight. The Soo was missing five veteran players in Friday’s game, but extended their win streak to eight games.

Meanwhile, Cristiano DiGiacinto scored on a 2 on 1 to establish a new career high for goals in a season. He's been a consistent scorer this year even without the traded Josh Ho Sang beside him.

Calgary is 9-1 in its last 10 games and has won five in a row.
