Three Stars: January 1, 2019

 

1ST STAR: ANTHONY SALINITRI (OSHAWA GENERALS):
Overage winger Anthony Salinitri (23, 24, 25) scored his league-leading seventh shorthanded goal of the season as part of a hat-trick performance to lead the Oshawa Generals past visiting Kingston 5-2. Salinitri’s third hat-trick in recent weeks saw him bring his season goal-scoring total to 25, including 11 goals and 15 points over 12 games since joining the Generals. The 20-year-old Windsor, Ont. product is in his fifth OHL season and has 105 goals, 103 assists and 208 career points over 282 regular season contests. The former first round pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection is a former sixth round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2016 and attended Rookie Camp with the Vancouver Canucks in September.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS

2ND STAR: SERRON NOEL (OSHAWA GENERALS):
Florida Panthers prospect Serron Noel picked up three assists in Tuesday’s 5-2 New Year’s Day victory over the visiting Kingston Frontenacs, assisting on all three of Salinitri’s hat-trick goals. The 6-foot-5, 214Ib Noel also got involved in some extracurriculars in the win and now has 50 points (22-28–50) over 37 contests this season. The 18-year-old Ottawa, Ont. native was Florida’s second round (34th overall) pick last summer. He’s in the midst of a four-game run of multi-point performances and has at least one point in eight of his last nine games.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS

3RD STAR: HUNTER JONES (PETERBOROUGH PETES):
The Peterborough Petes came up short on Tuesday afternoon in Kitchener, but 2019 NHL Draft prospect Hunter Jones stole the show to earn first star honours at The Aud. Jones stopped 43 of the 46 shots he faced as the Petes were outplayed and outshot 46-25 in the 3-1 loss. The 18-year-old Brantford, Ont. native is enjoying a great draft season in the OHL, playing to a 19-14-0-0 record with a 2.79 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage over 33 games. Jones has been named to the 2019 Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game set to take place on January 23rd in Red Deer, Alta.
