1ST STAR: JONATHAN YANTSIS (KITCHENER RANGERS):
Jonathan Yantsis had a night to remember on Friday, scoring four goals to become the first Rangers player since Jeff Skinner (2009-10) to score 50 in a season. Yantsis’ career-high five-point night saw the Rangers strike for nine straight goals in a 9-3 win over visiting Owen Sound. The 19-year-old former free agent signing has increased his output from five goals and 12 points last season to 50 goals and 73 points in 2018-19. Yantsis has scored in four straight contests and leads the OHL with 24 power play markers. The Markham, Ont. native has 90 points (58-32–90) over 150 career regular season contests.

Ruzicka reached the 33-goal mark on the season, giving him 74 points (33-41–74) over 63 games between Sudbury and Sarnia. The 6-foot-4 Slovakian centreman has seven points over his last two games and a total of 37 (22-15–37) over his 28 games in a Wolves uniform this season. Ruzicka was Calgary’s fourth round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft.

First-year Sudbury Wolves forward Owen Robinson had a career night, scoring while adding four assists as the Wolves defeated the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 8-4.
