1ST STAR: JUSTIN BRAZEAU (NORTH BAY BATTALION):
Justin Brazeau brought his A-game, completing a hat-trick 3:36 into overtime with help from Brad Chenier and Nick King to bring the North Bay Battalion back from a 4-2 deficit to defeat the visiting Flint Firebirds 5-4. Brazeau’s third of the night and 48th of the season pushed him ahead of Cody Hodgson for third on the Battalion all-time goal-scoring list, giving him 115 on his OHL career. The 21-year-old from New Liskeard, Ont. sits second in OHL scoring with 89 points (48-41–89) over 52 games and is in the midst of a five-game point streak. Brazeau attended rookie camp with the San Jose Sharks in September and remains unsigned by an NHL team.
