Sept. 29/18 – OTT (4) – OS (3)
Montreal Canadiens prospect Nick Suzuki (1, 2, 3) netted his seventh career OHL hat-trick, but the Bears were upstaged by the visiting Ottawa 67’s as Austen Keating set up Noel Hoefenmayer (1) for the late game winner in a 4-3 decision. After Quinn Yule (1) tied things at three with 3:50 left in the third period, Hoefenmayer netted the winner with 2:21 to spare, improving the 67’s to 2-2 on the campaign. Tye Felhaber (2) and Kevin Bahl (2) also scored for the Barber Poles while Keating had a pair of assists and rookie Will Cranley earned his first OHL win with a 41-save showing. The Attack outshot Ottawa 44-25 as Kevin Hancock picked up a pair of assists on Suzuki’s hat-trick performance. Owen Sound falls to 1-3 to start the season.
