Jacob Maillet of the Guelph Storm registered his first career OHL goal in a 5-2 win over the Sudbury Wolves. He found the back of the net at the 6:25 mark of the second period to push the Storm to a 4-2 comeback lead, having been down 2-0 early in the first period. The 16-year-old product of Dundas, Ont. has now put up four points through his first 37 games in a Storm jersey. He was a second round pick in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection and amassed 37 points (14-23—37) in 32 games with the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs last season.


Kingston Frontenacs rookie Ethan Ritchie scored his first OHL goal in a 5-2 loss at the hands of the visiting Soo Greyhounds Friday night. The Oakville, Ont. native opened the scoring off a feed from Zayde Wisdom midway through the second period, giving his Fronts a brief 1-0 lead. Through his first 17 games, Ritchie now holds four points with the club. The 17-year-old defenceman was drafted by the Erie Otters in the fifth round of the 2018 OHL Priority Selection after putting up 24 points (9-15—24) in 34 games with his hometown Oakville Rangers Minor Midgets. Ritchie spent the 2018-19 season and parts of this year with the Georgetown Raiders, amassing a total of four goals and 11 points.


Peterborough Petes rookie centreman Curtis Trolley also earned his first OHL goal on Friday night. Trolley scored midway through the middle frame in a 7-2 loss to the division rival Oshawa Generals. A Peterborough native, Trolley’s goal is his first point through his first 10 games with the club, having spent 28 games with the OJHL’s Lindsay Muskies this year through which he put up 14 points (8-6—14). He was picked up in the 12th round of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection and amassed 10 goals and 25 points with the Muskies last season.
