Three Stars: September 28, 2018

 

1ST STAR: OWEN TIPPETT (MISSISSAUGA STEELHEADS):
The game sheet says it all. Owen Tippett scored three times in his first 26 minutes of the 2018-19 season after returning from the Florida Panthers earlier this week. The 19-year-old who scored 36 times a year ago and 44 the season before that is ready to fill the net this season and racked up seven shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in his first test drive Friday night. The hat-trick is the third of Tippett’s OHL career as he now sits just two goals shy of the century mark.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS

2ND STAR: SHANE BULITKA (SUDBURY WOLVES):
Third-year centreman Shane Bulitka enjoyed a career night, collecting four points in Sudbury’s 5-2 home opening win over the Oshawa Generals. After setting up Jack Thompson for his first OHL goal, Bulitka redirected a Quinton Byfield shot into the net before returning the favour for Byfield just over two minutes later. He also set up Kirill Nizhnikov to put the Wolves up by two on an exciting night at the Sudbury Community Arena. A former Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs standout, Bulitka looks to build off his 33 points (10-23–33) last season.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS

3RD STAR: COLE MACKAY (SAULT STE. MARIE GREYHOUNDS):
Sophomore forward Cole MacKay registered a career-high three points as the Soo Greyhounds took a 5-3 win in London. MacKay camped out on the doorstep to swat a loose puck over the goal line on the power play 4:28 into action. He struck again with 1:20 left in the opening frame, picking up speed at the top of the circle before snapping a wrister past London’s Joseph Raaymakers. MacKay would add an assist on Joe Carroll’s third period game winner as the Greyhounds claimed their second win of the season. A Sault Ste. Marie native, MacKay was a fifth round pick of the Hounds in 2017 after he led the ALLIANCE circuit in goal-scoring as a member of the Kitchener Jr. Rangers.
