1ST STAR: JUSTIN BRAZEAU (NORTH BAY BATTALION):
Overage captain Justin Brazeau netted his fifth hat-trick of the season as the North Bay Battalion claimed a key victory over the visiting Barrie Colts. The Troops bolstered their playoff hopes with a 6-2 win on home ice as Brazeau pulled into a tie with Ottawa’s Tye Felhaber for the OHL goal-scoring lead, netting his franchise record 56th, 57th and 58th of the campaign. Just the second player in Battalion franchise history to record 100 points in a season, Brazeau pulled ahead of Barclay Goodrow for third on the franchise’s all-time points list on Tuesday, increasing his career production to 230 points (125-105–230) over 265 regular season games. The 21-year-old from New Liskeard, Ont. was originally North Bay’s 13th round pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection. He attended rookie camp with the San Jose Sharks last September.
