Three Stars: May 4, 2019


Cedrick Andree‘s first career OHL playoff win came in an unexpected situation as the 18-year-old entered Saturday’s contest late in the first period, helping the 67’s climb out from under a 2-0 deficit with 26 saves in a 4-3 victory. Andree helped the 67’s fend off a fierce Guelph attack in the third period as they took a 2-0 series lead before a home crowd of 8,655. The Orleans, Ont. native becomes the first netminder in 20 years to stop at least 20 shots in a relief appearance and pick up the win in an OHL Championship contest. Andree played to. 34-5-2-2 record with a 2.48 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in 45 regular season contests. He was Ottawa’s 12th round pick in 2016.

St. Louis Blues prospect Alexey Toropchenko has been a physical presence throughout the playoffs and showed off his goal scoring touch on Saturday, lighting the lamp twice as the Guelph Storm fell by a score of 4-3 in Ottawa. Toropchenko struck 12:59 into the first period to open the scoring on a power play one-timer. He scored again 1:15 into the third frame, jumping on his own rebound to bring the Storm within a goal. The 19-year-old from Moscow, Russia has 13 points (8-5–13) over 20 playoff contests. He registered 43 points (17-26–43) over 62 games this past season. He was St. Louis’ fourth round pick in 2017.

Overage winger Lucas Chiodo stretched his point streak to 14 games on Saturday, picking up three assists as the Ottawa 67’s proved too much for the Guelph Storm in a 4-3 win. Chiodo has at least a point in each of his playoff outings to give him 25 points (8-17–25) over 14 playoff contests. The 20-year-old Churchill, Ont. native recorded 79 points (29-50–79) between Ottawa and Barrie this past season. The fourth-year veteran amassed 221 points (82-139–221) over his 255 game career. Chiodo was Barrie’s 15th round pick back in 2014.
