Milestone Moments: December 30, 2018


Ottawa 67’s rookie Jesse Dick scored his first OHL goal in his seventh game of the season on Sunday, helping his club take a 5-2 win in Oshawa. Dick opened the scoring 4:25 into the first period with help from fellow rookie Yanic Crete and defenceman Lucas Peric. The 17-year-old from Arnprior, Ont. was the sixth overall pick of the 2018 OHL Under-18 Priority Selection and began the season with the Kemptville 73’s Jr. A club, putting up 22 points (10-12–22) over 30 games. He is a graduate of the Pembroke Lumber Kings Midget AAA program.


Sixteen-year-old Tristan Lennox became the youngest goaltender in Saginaw Spirit history to earn his first OHL shutout, stopping all 23 shots he faced in a 5-0 blanking of the visiting Flint Firebirds on Sunday. Lennox improved to 2-1-1-1 with a 2.38 goals-against average and .906 save percentage. The 16-year-old from Cambridge, Ont. has split the season between Saginaw and the Brantford 99ers Jr. A club where he went 4-7-0-0 with a 3.74 goals-against average and .918 save percentage over 11 games. Saginaw’s second round pick this past Spring, Lennox is a graduate of the Mississauga Reps Minor Midget program and won’t be NHL Draft eligible until 2021. Lennox represented Team Canada White at the 2018 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.


Oshawa Generals 19-year-old rookie Matthieu Franche found the back of the net for the first time in his OHL career, doing so in his 20th game of the season. The 6-foot-4, 197Ib blueliner put a shot past Ottawa’s Cedrick Andree 5:07 into the third period of Sunday’s 5-2 loss, getting help from Serron Noel to score his milestone marker. Franche was a ninth round pick of the Generals back in 2015 before spending the past three seasons in the CCHL. In 61 games with the Smiths Falls Bears Jr. A club last season, Franche recorded 13 points (3-10–13). The Orleans, Ont. native has two points (1-1–2) over 20 games with the Generals this season.
