Jake Durham picked up an assist on Friday as he suited up in his 218th career OHL regular season game as a Flint Firebird, surpassing Hakon Nilsen for the most in the club’s five-year history. The game was Durham’s 208th consecutive contest.
Durham and the Firebirds overcame a 3-0 deficit, scoring five unanswered to defeat the Mississauga Steelheads and improve to 11-5-0-0 atop the West Division.
An overage winger from Port Perry, Ont., Durham has 14 points (8-6–14) over 16 games this season. The 5-foot-10, 188Ib. winger comes off a 35-goal season a year ago. He’s in the midst of his fourth full OHL season having recorded 119 points (61-58–119) over 218 career OHL regular season games. Durham was originally a seventh round pick of the Hamilton Bulldogs in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection from the Central Ontario Wolves Minor Midgets. He was signed by the Firebirds out of training camp in 2016.
