Kingston Frontenacs forward Lawson Crouse is one of the top prospects heading into the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, but he might have to take a seat for a few games as the Ontario Hockey League season winds down.
The Eastern Conference leading Oshawa Generals handed the Frontenacs a 7-1 beating on Friday night and things turned ugly in the third period. Crouse picked up a two-minute penalty for a vicious two-handed slash on Generals captain Josh Brown early in the frame, which led to several fights and ejections.
A suspension for Crouse could be in order.
Crouse, who was a member of Team Canada’s World Junior Championship winning squad, has 20 goals and 31 points in 38 games this season.
