Other Barrie goals came from Justin Murray (1), Luke Bignell (1), Lucas Chiodo (1), Zach Magwood (1) and Jason Willms (1). Sophomore winger Jaden Peca finished the night with three assists and a plus/minus rating of plus-6. Barrie outshot Ottawa 37-22 as goaltender Leo Lazarev made 20 saves against his former club. Mathieu Foget (1) and rookie Seva Losev (1) provided goals in the loss for the 67’s. The Colts are the first OHL team to score 11 goals in their first game of the season since the 2013-14 Kingston Frontenacs.
