Steelheads’ Hague sets club single-season points record

 

Vegas Golden Knights prospect Nicolas Hague continued a record-setting season on Friday, scoring his 34th and 35th goals of the season as the Mississauga Steelheads defeated the visiting Ottawa 67’s 5-2.

With the two goals, Hague set a new Steelheads club record with his 76th point of the campaign, surpassing past marks of 75 held by Alexander Nylander (2015-16) and teammate Owen Tippett (2016-17).

The franchise’s all-time single season points record is currently held by Justin Donati, who recorded 109 points with the Toronto St. Michael’s Majors during the 2005-06 season.

Hague’s 35 goals are the most in a single season by an OHL defenceman since Kingston’s Chris Allen lit the lamp 38 times in 1997-98.

The big 6-foot-5, 218Ib. rearguard from Kitchener, Ont. is set to become the first defenceman in all-time franchise history to lead his team in scoring after already setting other marks including most single-season and career goals by a defenceman as well as single-season points by a blueliner.

Hague was Vegas’ second round (34th overall) pick in the 2017 NHL Draft this past summer. The 2016 OHL Scholastic Player of the Year, Hague was originally Mississauga’s second round (29th overall) pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection from the Kitchener Rangers Minor Midgets.
