Reflecting on a Quieter Weekend for LA Kings’ OHL Contingent
It was a less-eventful weekend for the LA Kings’ OHL contingent overall, but defenseman Brandt Clarke did excel with three assists.
Another weekend in the OHL has come and gone. Here’s what each of the three LA Kings prospects had to show for themselves.
Overall, Brandt Clarke had a solid showing this weekend. The Kings’ 1st-round pick in 2021 registered three assists on Thursday night in St. Catharines. Unfortunately for Clarke and the Barrie Colts, they fell flat against the Niagara Ice Dogs, losing by an 8-5 count.
The Colts fared no better on Sunday as they were shut out, 3-0, by the Ottawa 67’s.
In those two games combined, Clarke finished with a minus-4 rating and seven shots on goal.
The Colts fall to 2-4-1 on the year.
UP NEXT: vs Sudbury (Oct 28), @ Mississauga (Oct 29), vs North Bay (Oct 30)
Martin Chromiak and the Kingston Frontenacs only had one game this past weekend, but it was a successful one.
While he didn’t register any points on Friday night, Chromiak helped Kingston to a convincing 6-1 victory against the Peterborough Petes. The Kings prospect also registered five shots on goal and was 0-for-1 in the faceoff circle.
The Fronts improve to 4-2-0 on the year.
UP NEXT: vs. Ottawa (Oct 29), @ Ottawa (Oct 30)
The Kitchener Rangers had four games this past week, although Francesco Pinelli only played in the latter two.
On Friday night, the Rangers capped off a thrilling 3-2 shootout win against the Windsor Spitfires to improve to 5-0-0 on the season. Unfortunately, the undefeated streak was snapped on Sunday thanks to a 4-2 loss at the hands of the Guelph Storm.
In the latter outing, Pinelli had an assist and four shots on goal but did finish the contest with a minus-1 rating. On Friday, while he was held pointless, the Kings prospect was a plus-one and finished 7-for-18 in the faceoff circle.
The Rangers are now 5-1-0 on the year.
UP NEXT: @ Sault Ste Marie (Oct 29), vs Sault Ste Marie (Oct 30)
We’ll see you next week for more of the LA Kings’ OHL contingent.
It should be exciting!
