Milestone Moments: Oct. 5/17
Thurdsay’s clash between Central Division foes in the Sudbury Wolves and Niagara IceDogs yielded a pair of milestone goals on either side of the ice. Wolves blueliner Liam Ross and IceDogs forward Andrew Bruder both found the scoresheet with their first OHL goals respectively.
ANDREW BRUDER (NIAGARA ICEDOGS):
Seventeen year-old Andrew Bruder was in the right place at the right time, getting some help from linemate Ben Jones before putting his first OHL goal through the legs of Sudbury’s Jake McGrath with 18 seconds remaining in regulation. The IceDogs fell 5-2 against the visiting Wolves, but it’ll be a night that Bruder, a free agent signing this past offseason, will always remember.
LIAM ROSS (SUDBURY WOLVES):
Liam Ross‘ first OHL goal turned out to be a big one. The 16-year-old Markham, Ont. native scored the game winner with a wrist shot from the blue line that found its way past Stephen Dhillon at 8:43 of the second period. That goal made the score 3-1 for Sudbury in an eventual 5-2 victory. Ross was an OHL Cup champion with the Mississauga Reps Minor Midgets last season before becoming Sudbury’s fourth round pick back in April.
