Despite an 8-5 pre-season loss to the Kingston Frontenacs on Monday, the Ottawa 67’s showed they’ll once again be an offensive force this coming season.
Visiting the Cornwall Civic Complex on Labour day to square off against 2019 first-overall pick Shane Wright and the Frontenacs, Ottawa got goals from Alec Belanger, Marco Rossi, Thomas Johnston, Cameron Tolnai and Graeme Clarke.
Clarke, a 2019 draft selection of the New Jersey Devils, has now scored four goals in three exhibition games to start the pre-season. He and linemate Rossi have combined for 14 points (seven each) in those three games.
The 67’s will get a week-plus of practice time before wrapping up the pre-season schedule on September 13 and 15 against Kingston and Gatineau.
In the meantime, the 67’s will host a season-kick off event in support of the OSEG Foundation on Thursday, September 5 at the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park. For more information on the Back to School, Back to Work, Back to Hockey event, click here.
