D Dylan Blujus, NB: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, *First Star*

Blujus (pictured) made his season debut after arriving at Tampa Bay’s camp with an injury and undergoing surgery. He scored North Bay’s first goal and was named first star. The former Lightning second rounder is expected to improve his offensive totals while he continues to raise his abilities in his own end, which he did last year when the Battalion were in Brampton.

Barrie is now winless in six games after another one-goal loss – their fourth in a row. No word yet why Dotchin missed the game.
