Three Stars: October 4, 2018

 

1ST STAR: MICHAEL DiPIETRO (WINDSOR SPITFIRES):
Vancouver Canucks prospect Michael DiPietro joined record company on Thursday, making 32 saves for his 16th career shutout to tie an OHL record. DiPietro pulls into a tie with Tom McCollum atop the all-time leaderboard, making several high quality saves along the way as the Spits blanked the rival London Knights 2-0 on home ice. The defending OHL Goaltender of the Year turned in seven shutouts last season after recording six during the 2016-17 season. He helped the Spitfires get back above .500 with a 3-2 record through five games.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS

2ND STAR: UKKO-PEKKA LUKKONEN (SUDBURY WOLVES):
Buffalo Sabres prospect Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen turned aside 46 shots as the Sudbury Wolves took a 3-2 road win in Niagara. The 6-foot-5 netminder came up big in his third OHL contest and improves to 3-0 on the season with a 1.97 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage. The native of Espoo, Finland was the third overall pick of the 2018 CHL Import Draft.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS

3RD STAR: ZACH GALLANT (PETERBOROUGH PETES):
Detroit Red Wings prospect Zach Gallant recorded his first career OHL hat-trick just one day after being named the 60th captain in Peterborough Petes franchise history. Gallant led the Petes past the Soo Greyhounds 5-2 on home ice as linemate Nick Isaacson had three assists in the process. All three of Gallant’s goals came in the third period, with the last marker going into the empty net to put the cherry on top of Peterborough’s fourth win of the season. A fourth-year veteran from Oakville, Ont., Gallant was Peterborough’s first round (fifth overall) pick in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection. He has five points (3-2–5) through his first five games of the season.
