Another Ontario Hockey League week has come to a close and there were some outstanding performances around the league. But there can only be 3 stars and this has been one of the closest votes I’ve been a part of. So here are the three stars for the week ending October 20, 2013.
1st Star – Spencer Watson – Kingston Frontenacs: Watson missed the opening game of the week, his third consecutive game, but returned in fashion against the Kitchener Rangers. He scored twice and added two assists in a 6-2 Frontenac’s victory. The Rangers led 1-0 when Watson scored the next two to put the Fronts up for good. He was named the games third star. He followed that up with another goal and two assists in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Owen Sound Attack. He assisted on the game tying, shorthanded goal with 34 seconds remaining to force overtime.
2nd Star – Alex Nedeljkovic – Plymouth Whalers: Nedeljkovic continues to be a bright spot for the Whalers stopping 117 of 125 shots for a .936 save percentage last week. He stopped 33 of 35 for a 3-2 overtime victory over the North Bay Battalion and earned the games second star. That was followed by a 43 save performance in a 3-2 win over the Sudbury Wolves. That included 20 saves in the third to preserve the win. He was named first star of the game. The week ended by stopping 41 of 45 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Barrie Colts.
3rd Star – Anthony DeAngelo – Sarnia Sting: DeAngelo had an outstanding week scoring 2 goals and adding 6 assists in 3 games. The defenseman scored once and added 3 assists in a 5-3 win over the Saginaw Spirit and was named the games 3rd star. That was followed by a lone assist in a 4-2 loss to Owen Sound. He finished up the week with a goal and two assists in a 5-3 win in the rematch with Saginaw. He was again named 3rd star in the game.
