Players to Watch; Oshawa Allan McShane - McShane has been rock solid this season. Consistency is not a problem for him. McShane has only been held off of the scoresheet for two consecutive games on one occasion. McShane is an elite playmaking forward who excels playing both centre and wing. When he plays centre, McShane is above average in the faceoff dot with a 56% success rate.
Daniel Walker - Walker is a big man with some serious attitude. In his past five games, Walker has two goals, three points, and two fights. Walker works hard and has his teammates' backs. His fight against Wolves forward Macauley Carson on national television was legendary. But Walker is no stiff when it comes to helping on the scoresheet. In his 17 games this season, the overage forward has seven points and is on pace to beat his career high of ten points.
Players to Watch; Peterborough Nick Robertson - Robertson picked up where he left off, coming back after missing ten games to injury. In his first three games back he has two goals and four points. In his 20 games this season, nine times he has fired at least five shots on opposing goalies. In three games he has put up more than ten shots. While he was didn't record a point in his first game against the Generals this season, he is a dangerous scoring threat. He is sixth in league goal scoring with 21 goals and is the only player in the league with over one goal per game.
