Milestone Moments: Oct. 21/17


Three players hit career milestones on Saturday night with rookie defencemen Marcus Gretz of the Flint Firebirds and Colton Kammerer of the Sarnia Sting scoring their first OHL goals while Ottawa 67’s goaltender Olivier Tremblay recorded his first career OHL shutout. He’s a closer look at those accomplishments.


Rookie defenceman Marcus Gretz got in on the seven-goal display of offensive power in Flint on Saturday, helping the Firebirds defeat the visiting Peterborough Petes 7-3. The 15-year-old from Macomb, Michigan wristed a shot past Peterborough’s Dylan Wells 6:18 into the third period to put the Birds up by a score of 5-3. Gretz was Flint’s second round (23rd overall) pick last April from the Detroit Belle Tire U16 program.


Birthday boy Colton Kammerer celebrated his 16th birthday in style, contributing┬áto a 7-2 Sarnia Sting road victory in Barrie on Saturday with his first career OHL goal. The Sting won their 11th straight contest with Kammerer scoring his club’s fifth goal of the night 1:11 into the third period with assists from Jordan Kyrou and Drake Rymsha. The Sting went on to win 7-2 and improve to 12-1-0-0 on the season. Kammerer was Sarnia’s third round (52nd overall) pick last April from the Whitby Wildcats Minor Midgets.


He has five career QMJHL shutouts, but Ottawa 67’s netminder Olivier Tremblay collected the first of his OHL career on Saturday in Niagara. The overage netminder made 29 saves to backstop the 67’s to a 1-0 overtime win over the IceDogs as sophomore winger Kody Clark scored an overtime winner for the third consecutive game. Tremblay was acquired by the 67’s from the Barrie Colts last month after he was claimed off waivers from the QMJHL’s Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.
