London Knights knock off Greyhounds for eighth victory in ten games – London

An afternoon three-pointer for Denver Barkey led the London Knights to their third win in less than 46 hours as they edged the Soo Greyhounds 4-2 at Budweiser Gardens on Sunday afternoon.

The Knights’ 2021 first-round pick has scored once and added two assists to give him 16 points in 16 games this season.

The win was London’s fourth in a row and eighth in its last ten games.

Score goals in games between the Knights and Sault Ste. Marie was about as easy as advanced algebra.

In 80 minutes of hockey in 2022-23, there was exactly one goal in a 1-0 draw at Sault Ste. Marie victory over London on Friday 7 October.

The Greyhounds thought they had scored in the first half. With time running out, Marco Mignosa tried to squeeze a puck past Brett Brochu and inside the left post. The puck came off the ice and was eventually covered by Brochu. The game was reviewed and was deemed “goalless”.

With London on the power play, another Londoner took advantage as Greyhounds’ Jordan D’Intino caught a puck in his own end and flew over the Knights’ blue line and scored on a hit to put Sault Ste. Marie ahead 2-1.

London continued on that power play and tied the game on a shot from Logan Mailloux.

Othmann traded

The first massive move of the 2022-23 Ontario Hockey League season came when the Peterborough Petes visited the home of the Flint Firebirds on November 12. The Petes came away with a 3-2 shootout victory and also with 50- scorer Brennan Othmann.

Flint traded the 19-year-old New York Rangers prospect to Peterborough for a 2nd-round pick, two 3rd-round picks and towering 19-year-old defenseman Artom Guryev who has one assist and 37 penalty minutes this season . Guryev is a 5th round pick of the San Jose Sharks. Othmann is currently serving a two-game suspension for throwing a puck off Sarnia Sting’s bench, but is tied for 3rd in OHL scoring with 24 points in 16 games this year.
