Milestone Moments: Dec. 1/17

Ontario Hockey League


A pair of 2017 first round OHL Priority Selection choices scored their first career OHL goals on Friday night. Here’s a closer look at those two milestone markers.


Second overall OHL Priority Selection choice Tag Bertuzzi has his first career OHL goal, putting a quick release past Erie’s Troy Timpano on Friday as the Storm took a 5-4 win in overtime. Bertuzzi had help from fellow rookie Mason Primeau and defenceman Dmitri Samorukov on his goal that came with just two seconds remaining in the second period. The 6-foot-1, 199Ib. 16-year-old was delayed by injuries early this season but has bounced back to record four points through 13 games.


Owen Sound Attack first round (20th overall) pick Mitchell Russell scored his first OHL goal just 1:06 into Friday night’s contest in Kitchener as the Attack fell at the hands of the Rangers by a score of 5-4 in overtime. Russell’s first goal came with assists from Jonah Gadjovich and Jacob Friend as the 16-year-old from Barrie, Ont. fired a nice shot inside the far post past Kitchener’s Luke Richardson. Russell is a graduate of the Barrie Colts Minor Midget program.
