Ontario Hockey League
It was Family Day in Ontario, so the OHL had lots of afternoon games for people with the day off.
Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Sarnia Sting 0
D Anthony DeAngelo, SOO: 1-0-1, +3, 0 PIM
With SSM: 15 GP, 5-21-26, +14, 28 PIM
With Sarnia: 29 GP, 10-28-38, +1, 64 PIM
Season totals: 44 GP, 15-49-64, +15, 93 PIM
2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM
DeAngelo returned from an automatic one-game suspension for removing a helmet in a fight to score a goal against his former team and extend his point streak to 13 games. DeAngelo, who tied his career high for goals in a season, was honored before the game for his 3 ½ years with the Sarnia organization. His parents made the trip to the game for the ceremony. DeAngelo told the Sarnia broadcast during an intermission interview that (paraphrased) while his junior career is ending with the Soo, he’ll be remembered for his time with Sarnia, which is an honor.
Windsor Spitfires 4 @ Guelph Storm 5 (OT)
W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 49 GP, 16-18-34, -10, 91 PIM
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM
This one will hurt. Windsor outshot the Storm 50-36, but Guelph scored the game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation then won in overtime. The Spits are two points out of a playoff spot in the West.
North Bay Battalion 2 @ Peterborough Petes 3
D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 44 GP, 7-18-25, -12, 64 PIM
2013-14 totals (Czech U20): 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM
Peterborough came back from a 2-0 hole to defeat the Battalion, 3-2. The Petes are now tied for the last playoff spot in the East. Masin continues to consistently hit the scoresheet in the second half. As was expected, he’s taken off in the latter half of his first North American season:
First 29 games: 5-8-13, -21
Last 15 games: 2-10-12, +9
