Steelheads Earn a Point on Family Day

February 21, 2022 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL)
Brampton Steelheads News Release

High-intensity was the name as the game, as the Steelheads get a point at home on Family Day.

First Period

With an excited crowd ready to celebrate Family Day at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre, the Steelheads faced off against the Sudbury Wolves. The Trout had several chances right off the bat, taking three shots in the first ninety seconds of the game. However, Sudbury was able to open the scoring on the power play, as Evan Konyen earned his tenth goal of the season.

The Steelheads kept pushing hard to get one past netminder Mitchell Weeks on the other end of the ice. James Hardie had a great chance, as he collected a pass from Luca DelBelBelluz and spun around to fire the shot on net. Once the Steelheads got a power play of their own, Hardie was able to break through. After Owen Beck's shot was blocked, Hardie grabbed the puck and took the shot that sent the puck past Weeks, tying the game at one apiece. Aidan Prueter also picked up the assist on Hardie's 31st goal of the season.

Towards the end of the frame, Dominik Jendek came down on a breakaway and was able to put the puck past Roman Basran giving Sudbury a 2-1 lead. The Steelheads pressed hard to tie the game back at two before the end of the period, but Weeks made a number of big stops to keep the Trout at bay.

Shots: 9 SBY/17 MISS

Second Period

The Steelheads started the period on an intense power play that saw lots of good possession and a couple of big shots on net. After the power play expired and throughout the frame, the Trout kept throwing shot after shot on net, trying to solve Weeks.

While Steelheads' goalie Roman Basran had a quiet period, he made a couple of massive glove saves to keep the score steady towards the end of the period. Mississauga kept up the pressure all the way until the buzzer sounded at the end of the frame, outshooting their opponents by a wide margin.

Shots: 4 SBY/15 MISS

Third Period

Mississauga kept up their high-intensity play throughout the third period, working as hard as they could to get one past Weeks. Finally, at the 13:49 mark of the frame, Zakary Lavoie broke through after Weeks had already faced 41 shots on net. Despite a scary collision between Ethan Del Mastro and Max Dodig, Dodig was able to send the puck over to Lavoie, who shot it high glove side to even the score at two. Both were credited with the assists.

The fans were kept on their toes with a late penalty to Del Mastro, but ultimately, the game needed extra time.

Shots: 7 SBY/11 MISS


It was all Steelheads in overtime. From start to end, the Trout had a stronghold over the puck and took numerous shots on Weeks, who was having the game of his career. After outshooting the Wolves 6-1 in the extra frame, the game still needed a shootout to determine a winner.
