Milestone Moments: Sept. 23/17


Three more┬árookies scored the first goal of their OHL careers on Saturday night as #OHLOpeningWeek continued with six games across the league. Here’s a look at who found the scoresheet.


The 10th overall pick of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection, Ethan Keppen put the Flint Firebirds up 2-0 in Owen Sound in a game they’d eventually take 4-3 in a shootout. Keppen made the most of a chance from close quarters, beating Attack goaltender Zack Bowman 7:22 into the first period with an assist from Jacob Collins. Keppen played his minor midget hockey with the Toronto Nationals, reaching the OHL Cup Final with them last spring.


After just recently committing to the Steelheads late this past week, Cameron Gaylor is in the goal-scoring column. Though the Steelheads came up short in Kingston, Gaylor got on the board 9:58 into the third period as he teamed up with linemate Albert Michnac to beat Frontenacs goaltender Jeremy Helvig. Gaylor was the 13th overall pick of the 2017 OHL Under-18 Priority Selection.


After a big season of point production in Jr. C hockey last season, 17-year-old Zack Trott scored in his first OHL game on Saturday as the Hounds fell 7-4 to the visiting Oshawa Generals. Trott’s goal came with 1:29 left in the second period to bring the Hounds within two goals of the Generals. Philadelphia Flyers prospect Morgan Frost and fellow rookie Phil Caron had assists on the goal. Trott is a former 14th round pick by the Greyhounds in 2016.
