Scouting the opposition
Kingston Frontenacs (0-5-1-1)
Still looking for their first win this season, last place Kingston have a young, dynamic team that should not be taken lightly. The player to watch for the Fronts is without a shadow of a doubt 15-year old Shane Wright, the latest CHL player to have been granted the Exceptional Status. The young player has put up four points in six games so far this season, and other such as Zayde Wisdom and Nick Wong have done a decent job at producing offensively so far with three goals each on the season. In nets, the Frontenacs can count on a veteran presence, with 20-year old goalie Brendan Bonello between the pipes for his fourth OHL season.
- Jack Quinn has scored in three of his last five games.
- Mitch Hoelscher is leading the way offensively for the 67’s with nine points since the beginning of the campaign.
- Also, Ottawa can count on many players who are no strangers to the scoresheet. Keating, Hoefenmayer and Quinn, are three players who have accumulated seven points each so far this season.
- Traded from the 67’s to the Frontenacs just before the start of the season, Lucas Peric will be playing his first ever game against his old team on Monday afternoon, when the Frontenacs visit the Barber Poles.
- Monday will also be the very first opportunity for Ottawa fans to see Exceptional Status player and 2019 OHL first overall pick Shane Wright.
