The Wonder Twins connected for a pair of 3rd period goals to inch the Greyhounds past the Otters for their sixth straight victory. Katchouk got the primary assist on both of Raddysh’s goals but was robbed of a Star. Raddysh earned First Star honors against his old team and has seen a rebirth since the trade at the completion of the World Juniors, going 10-9-19 in 11 games with the Soo.

Peterborough Petes 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 5

W/C Christopher Paquette, PBO: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM, 4 SOG, 6/15 FO
Season Totals: 46 G, 14-7-21, -26, 14 PIM
’16-‘17 Totals (NIA/PBO): 66 GP, 19-29-48, +1, 28 PIM

Paquette opened the scoring with his 14th of the season, but the 67’s notched a power play goal and a shortie to take a 2-1 lead. Zach Gallant (DET, 2017 3rd round pick) and former Maple Leaf prospect Nikita Korostelev both scored 2nd period markers to give the Petes a 3-2 lead at the 2nd intermission. Win a period, win a hockey game, right? Sasha Chmelevski (SJS, 2017 6th round pick) capped off a three-goal 3rd period for Ottawa with two goals, the game-winner and the empty netter to seal Peterborough’s ninth straight loss.
