Three Stars: January 13, 2019

 

1ST STAR: BRENDAN BONELLO (KINGSTON FRONTENACS):
Brendan Bonello came 1:03 away from his OHL shutout, making a career-high 56 saves as the Kingston Frontenacs snuck past visiting North Bay 2-1. Bonello’s outstanding performance included 26 saves in the third period as the 19-year-old had the game of his OHL career, helping the Fronts stop one of the league’s hottest clubs. A 6-foot-2, 234Ib native of Mississauga, Ont., Bonello is 6-25-1-0 on the season with a 3.88 goals-against average and .892 save percentage. The former third round pick in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection joined the Frontenacs last season after starting his OHL career with the Saginaw Spirit. A busy weekend for Bonello also saw him make 48 saves in a Friday night loss to the Niagara IceDogs.

2ND STAR: ISAAC RATCLIFFE (GUELPH STORM):
Guelph Storm captain Isaac Ratcliffe buried a hat-trick in a four point performance as the Guelph Storm skated past the visiting Ottawa 67’s 8-4. Ratcliffe worked alongside former London Jr. Knights Minor Midget teammate Nick Suzuki as the Storm outgunned the East Division-leading 67’s with eight goals on 38 shots. Ratcliffe’s hat-trick included two first period goals before he finished things off with his 30th of the season with five minutes left in the second. The 6-foot-6 winger has 47 points (30-17–47) over 39 games this season and has goals in seven straight contests. Ratcliffe was a second round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2017.

3RD STAR: NICK SUZUKI (GUELPH STORM):
Montreal Canadiens prospect Nick Suzuki was an offensive catalyst on Sunday picking up four assists in an 8-4 Guelph Storm win over the visiting Ottawa 67’s. Suzuki extended his point streak to seven games, giving him eight points (1-7–8) over his first three games as a member of the Storm. The 19-year-old from London, Ont. has 53 points (23-30–53) over 33 games this season and is 13 points shy of the 300-mark on his OHL career. Originally a first round pick of the Vegas Golden Knights in 2017, Suzuki was dealt to the Montreal Canadiens earlier this season in a deal that saw star winger Max Pacioretty go to Vegas. Suzuki recently represented Canada at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship.
