Milestone Moments: Dec. 8/17


A pair of rookie defencemen scored their first OHL goal on Friday night. Here’s a look at those milestones.

A quick trigger served big Russian defender Nikita Alexandrov well, netting him his first career OHL goal on Friday in Kitchener. The 6-foot-7, 203Ib. rearguard wristed a low shot through traffic that found its way into the net as he put the Firebirds in the lead 3-2. Flint would lose the game 5-4 in overtime, but it will remain a memorable night for the 18-year-old from Kurgan, Russia. Alexandrov was Flint’s first round pick in the 2017 CHL Import Draft.


Rookie Mississauga Steelheads blueliner Thomas Harley picked up his first OHL goal on home ice Friday night, sending a wrist shot under the glove of Barrie’s Kai Edmonds. Harley’s goal 9:19 into the third period came with assists from Merrick Rippon and Albert Michnac as his marker tied the game at two. Barrie would go on to win 3-2 on a late goal, but Harley’s first OHL marker remains on the scoresheet nonetheless. The 16-year-old from Syracuse, New York was Mississauga’s first round (14th overall) pick in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection from the Vaughan Kings Minor Midgets.
