Week two of the OHL season has come to a close and that means it’s time to look at the OHL three stars eligible for the 2013 NHL Draft.
1st Star – Ryan Kujawinski – Kingston Frontenacs: Kujawinski led his Frontenacs to being the last remaining undefeated team in the OHL this season. He scored twice and added three assists and was a plus two in two contests for the Fronts. He began the week with a three assist effort in a 6-5 victory over the Erie Otters. His second and final game of the week was a match between the two remaining undefeated teams, Kingston and the Niagara Ice Dogs. He scored twice in the game, including the all important first goal. Kujawinski was named the game’s second star vs Erie and first star vs Niagara. He was also named the OHL Player of the Week on Monday.
2nd Star – Stephen Harper – Erie Otters: It’s been a tough start for the Otters who have yet to play a home game as they await the completion of renovations to their own barn. This past week saw them play back-to back-to back games in Peterborough, Kingston and Ottawa. It started off with a 5-1 win in Peterborough led by Harper’s two goal performance, including the game winner and was named 2nd star for his efforts. That was followed by a two assist effort but it wasn’t quite enough as Kingston took the game 6-5. The tank was just about dry when they rolled into Ottawa and suffered an 8-1 drubbing at the hands of the 67’s. The Otters will finally play their home opener this Friday against Brampton.
3rd Star – Jordan DeKort – Windsor Spitfires: A battle of two of the top draft eligible goaltenders took place as DeKort went up against the Steelheads Spencer Martin in Mississauga. Although Martin prevailed in the shootout victory it was DeKort who kept the Spitfires alive stopping 35 of 37 shots and posting 1.85 goals against average and .946 save percentage. The quality of saves were almost as high as the quantity therefore the advantage goes to DeKort this time around.
