Kingston Frontenacs vs Ottawa 67's

Final: KGN 7-1 OTT

Friday, February 18, 2022

The Kingston Frontenacs (27-12-3-0) and Ottawa 67's (20-22-1-3) faced off on Friday night in the Limestone City with the Black and Gold taking a big 7-2 win on home ice. Francesco Arcuri had a pair of goals; Shane Wright recorded his third straight multi-point game with Jordan Frasca and Lucas Edmonds both extending point streaks to seven games as Kingston won its third consecutive a game.

It was the seventh meeting of the season between the East Division rivals with Kingston winning five of seven. The Fronts entered action one-point back of division-leading Hamilton as winners of two straight. The Bulldogs also won on Friday night keeping Kingston one-point back of the division lead.

Former 67's Alec Belanger faced his old mates for the first time after being acquired in a trade by General Manager Kory Cooper. "It was funny at the start looking across in warmup, looking across seeing them, said Belanger after the game. "I've played in this building as a visitor a few times. "I'm happy with the win, and thought I had a good game and the team played well."

Freshman netminder Aidan Spooner got his seventh start for Luca Caputi in the Fronts crease facing 24 shots for his sixth OHL victory. Ottawa replied with fellow rookie Max Donoso starting before being relieved after 40 minutes by Will Cranley.
