After taking a look at some of the interesting stats around the Canadian Hockey League last week, we decided to delve further into the stats and go team-by-team across the country.
Ontario Hockey League
Barrie Colts – In leading the Colts in scoring, Tyson Foerster had 36 goals, 18 of which came by the power play.
Erie Otters – Chad Yetman quietly finished second in team scoring with 74 points. He finished the year with 43 goals on a team that was battling for a playoff spot throughout the second half of the season.
Flint Firebirds – Evgeniy Oksentyuk had 33 goals. Among those were six game winners, and six others opened the scoring in games.
Guelph Storm – Of Cam Hillis’ 24 goals, just one came on special teams. The Montreal Canadiens prospect was a fixture on the Guelph power play, but as a setup man.
Hamilton Bulldogs – Arthur Kaliyev (Los Angeles Kings) had 98 points, 41 of which came on the power play. Take away those 41 points and Kaliyev still would have led the Bulldogs in scoring. Interesting to note that Jan Jenik (Arizona Coyotes) was second in scoring with 56 points but only played 27 games due to injury.
Kingston Frontenacs – Shane Wright had 29 even strength goals. Without his 10 power play goals, he still would have led all rookies in goals this season.
Kitchener Rangers – Riley Damiani was a key piece of the Rangers’ power play. Of his 50 assists this season, the Dallas Stars prospect had 25 on the man advantage.
London Knights – Liam Foudy (Columbus Blue Jackets) had 34 points over his final 18 games of the season. The streak amounted for half his point total.
Mississauga Steelheads – After splitting time between the pipes in Barrie last season, goaltender Kai Edmonds became a full time starter with Mississauga and was solid, posting 25 wins and a 3.26 goals-against average.
Niagara IceDogs – Oliver Castleman set career-highs in goals (22), assists (36) and points (58).
North Bay Battalion – After scoring 17 goals and 41 points through his first two OHL seasons, Luke Moncada broke out with 34 goals and 60 points in 62 games this season.
Oshawa Generals – Centre Ty Tullio stepped into a key offensive role in his second year. The 17-year-old proceeded to finish fourth in team scoring with 66 points.
Ottawa 67’s – One of five Ottawa players to finish among the OHL’s top 20 scorers, Jack Quinn’s 52 goals led the team. Eligible for the 2020 NHL draft, Quinn had 12 goals last season, his first year in the league.
Owen Sound Attack – Over-age defenceman Brady Lyle finished his OHL career on a high literally with career-highs in most offensive categories. That included 22 goals.
Peterborough Petes – Rookie forward Mason McTavish finished the season third on the team in goals with 29. That’s on a roster that included Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Nick Robertson and San Jose Sharks prospect Zach Gallant.
Saginaw Spirit – A full season with Bode Wilde in the lineup would have been deadly for the Spirit. The New York Islanders prospect was sent back late in the season and had 11 points in 11 games with the Spirit to finish the season.
Sarnia Sting – Jamieson Rees (Carolina Hurricanes) finished fourth in team scoring with 61 points. What makes it impressive is those points coming in just 39 games.
Soo Greyhounds – The team had three defencemen in top 20 defencemen points, which was the most of any team. Defenceman Robert Calisti had 18 goals, half on the power play.
Sudbury Wolves – After posting strong numbers in his first two seasons, Blake Murray’s offensive game took a jump this season. A Carolina Hurricanes prospect, his 35 goals were tops on the team.
Windsor Spitfires – His offensive game has slowly improved in each season in the league and Dallas Stars prospect Curtis Douglas used the improvement to set career-highs in goals (30) and points (60) this season.
