Petes Remain Undefeated against Bulldogs with Thursday Win
(Peterborough, ON) - Mason McTavish scored his first OHL hat trick and Tye Austin made a season-high 39 saves in a 7-4 Petes victory over the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs on Thursday night. The win improves Peterborough's record to 22-7-1-1 to take sole possession of first place in the Ontario Hockey League.
McTavish (16, 17, 18), who leads OHL rookies in goals, recorded his sixth multi-goal game of the season. USA World Junior Team hopeful Nick Robertson (22, 23) scored a pair, while John Parker-Jones (5) and Zach Gallant (16) had single tallies.
Defencemen Hudson Wilson and Jacob Paquette each registered two assists. Gallant, Nick Robertson, Tucker Robertson, Keegan McMullen, Declan Chisholm, Cameron Butler, and Max Grondin had single helpers.
In his ninth appearance of the season, 2020 NHL Draft-eligible goaltender Tye Austin earned his third win after making 39 saves including a penalty shot attempt.
Final shots were 43-33 in favour of the Bulldogs. Peterborough's sixth ranked power play was 1/4 and their sixth ranked penalty kill was 5/7.
During the game Hockey Canada announced that Petes goaltender Hunter Jones was released from Canada's National Junior Team Selection Camp. He is expected to return and be available to the Petes for Friday's road game against the Oshawa Generals.
