Ontario Hockey League
London Knights 5 @ Barrie Colts 4
D Jake Dotchin, BAR: 0-0-0, E, 9 PIM
Season totals: 46 GP, 9-20-29, +22, 96 PIM
2012-13 totals: 66 GP, 4-18-22, E, 81 PIM
Dotchin (pictured) fought Chandler Yakimowicz (2014) and was charged with an instigator penalty. Yakimowicz, a rookie with one assist to his name, apparently had a questionable hit on Colt center Zach Hall, so Dotchin jumped in. Dotchin reportedly went down injured in the fight and Yakimowicz threw another punch. Per hockeyfights.com, Dotchin has four fights in his OHL career and he’s received an instigator on three of them.

Season totals: 38 GP, 14-36-50, +13, 33 PIM

Ikonen’s assist gave him 50 points for the season. He’s one off his career high, set in considerably more games last year.
