Plymouth Whalers 2 @ Peterborough Petes 1
D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

The Petes lost their fourth consecutive one-goal game. Koekkoek is tied for second on the club in points with seven. Center Francis Menard (undrafted) leads with 12. Unfortunately, Koekkoek’s minus-10 rating is worst on the team; the closest to him is minus-5. The Petes are a struggling team and Koekkoek logs significant ice time.
