Oshawa Generals look to get in the win column on home ice in Game 3 tonight


Published April 26, 2022 at 3:08 pm

The Oshawa Generals are hoping home ice is the tonic to get back into their first round series against Kingston, with the Frontenacs currently leading the best-of-seven 2-0.

The Generals were 3-3 against Kingston on home ice this season, if that means anything, and if it’s what-have-you-done-lately, the Generals were victorious in their last encounter on home ice.

Puck drop at the Tribute Communities Centre is 7:05 p.m.

On the season-ending award front, a couple of Generals earned league honours at the annual OHL Coach’s Poll, with captain Ty Tullio finishing in a tie for third (with Danil Gushchin of Niagara) for Best Shot. Mason McTavish won the category – one of three first place finishes for the Hamilton Bulldog star – while James Hardie of Mississauga finished second.

For Best Shootout Shooter (won by Gushchin), Ryan Stepien of the Generals finished third behind Kingston rival Shane Wright.

At the team awards night, Tullio, as expected, took home the bulk of the awards, earning honours as MVP, as well as the Marc Savard Top Scorer Award and the Eric Lindros Top Forward Award. Thomas Stewart won the Fitness Award; Calum Ritchie and Patrick Leaver shared the John Tavares Rookie of the Year Award; Luca Marelli and his 95 per cent average was named the recipient of the Bruce Melanson Scholastic Player of the Year; Lleyton Moore took home the Bobby Orr Top Defencemen Award; and Ryan Gagnier won the Heart of a General Award.
