SARNIA STING: WEEKLY PRIMER Monday, October 16, 2017 Last Week 3-0-0-0 Overall 9-1-0-0 Friday, October 13 Mississauga Steelheads 1 Sarnia Sting 8 Game Sheet Saturday, October 14 Guelph Storm 1 Sarnia Sting 6 Game Sheet Sunday, October 15 Sarnia Sting 3 Windsor Spitfires 2 Game Sheet This Weekend
Sting Notes Brady Hinz: Now among the OHL goal scoring leaders, the draft eligible Hinz is coming off a very impressive week and is now riding a four-game goal streak. In a home ice win against Mississauga this past Friday, Hinz hit for two goals and one assist and duplicated that production with his three-point effort in a road win Sunday in Windsor. He also added a goal in a home ice victory against Guelph on Saturday solidifying the second year Sting forward as OHL Player of the Week.
Franco Sproviero: Another fine week in the books for the Sarnia native as his infectious hustle and flair for the dramatic was once again on full display in three Sting victories this past week. Production wise, Saturday’s win against Guelph is where Sproviero stole the show with a three-point outing, and his first two goals of the season were both shorthanded efforts against the Storm. Between the Pipes: While the Sting are currently the only OHL team with at least 50 goals on the season, its been the team’s defensive play that has started to turn heads league wide. The number one penalty kill in the OHL and sturdy all around work on the defensive side of the puck has been backed by terrific goaltending by the tandem of Justin Fazio and Aidan Hughes.
Fazio, who is closing in on the Sting’s all-time record for goaltending wins, currently leads the OHL in victories with seven, and Hughes has been solid with two wins in two starts including a 34 save effort against the Spitfires in Windsor on Sunday.
Point Streaks: Two of the better point streaks in the OHL this season came to an end in Sunday’s Sting victory in Windsor. Jordan Ernst had produced points in nine straight games before being held off the scoresheet in Windsor. However, Ernst still has the longest point streak in the OHL this season.
Jordan Kyrou, who pieced together a 30-game point streak a season ago, had a sevengame point run draw to a close in Windsor as well. OHL Milestones: Sting forward Cameron Hough now has a goal to his credit in the Ontario Hockey League as his tally in Saturday’s win against Guelph was his inaugural goal with the Sting.
