Milestone Moments: Sept. 27/17


Not only did Sudbury Wolves rookie Blake Murray score his first OHL goal on Wednesday, he scored three of them. Here’s a look at a big night for one of the OHL’s bright young stars.


The seventh overall pick of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection, Whitby Wildcats graduate Blake Murray took centre stage on Wednesday in North Bay. The 16-year-old netted a hat-trick within a span of 7:19, lighting the lamp for the first three times in his OHL career. Murray’s first goal came off a tremendous power play feed from rookie defenceman Zack Malik. He continued to be in the right place at the right time early in the third period when he took a feed from Dmitry Sokolov and finished at 3:08. Murray completed the hat-trick with an assist to overage defenceman Kyle Rhodes at 5:06. Murray’s big night was overshadowed by a Battalion overtime win, but the youngster has made quite an impression with points in all three games this season.
