Milestone Moments: Oct. 14/17
Mitchell Brewer, Jackson Doherty and Cameron Hough joined the parade of first career goal-scorers in the OHL this season on a busy Saturday night around the league. Here’s a closer look at their milestone moments.
MITCHELL BREWER (OSHAWA GENERALS):
All things considered, it wasn’t a memorable night for the Oshawa Generals on Saturday as they surrendered 12 goals for the first time in over 20 years, but for rookie defenceman Mitchell Brewer, he’ll always remember it as the night he scored his first two OHL goals. The 2017 first round pick from the Halton Hurricanes Minor Midgets snapped home his first on a shot from the blue line through traffic with 2:27 left in the second period. He’d score again just over two minutes later with five seconds remaining in the frame to account for two of Oshawa’s six goals in the lopsided defeat. The 16-year-old native of Waterdown, Ont. helped guide the Georgetown Raiders Jr. A club to an OJHL championship last spring.
JACKSON DOHERTY (OWEN SOUND ATTACK):
While Brewer was on the losing end of Saturday’s 12-6 goal-scoring gala in Owen Sound, Jackson Doherty was able to celebrate with the victors. Doherty stuffed home a rebound off Ethan Szypula’s initial chance from in tight, putting the Attack up 9-2 with 2:50 left in the second period. The 17-year-old Ancaster, Ont. native was a third round pick by the Attack in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection. He spent last season with the Oakville Blades Jr. A club.
CAMERON HOUGH (SARNIA STING):
Cameron Hough was in the right place at the right time, charging down the middle to stuff in his first OHL goal with 3:40 remaining in the first period. Hough’s Sarnia Sting would improve to 8-1-0-0 with a 6-1 win over the visiting Guelph Storm as his opening goal came on assists from Franco Sproviero and Curtis Egert. Hough, who turns 17 on Oct. 23rd, is a former 13th round pick by the club in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection from the Vaughan Kings Minor Midgets. He spent last season between the Sting and the Toronto Jr. Canadiens Midget club.
