Defenseman Stephen Desrocher, a prospect for the 2015 NHL Draft, scored at 18:07 of overtime to give the Oshawa Generals a 5-4 victory against the host Quebec Remparts on Sunday at the 2015 Memorial Cup, played at Pepsi Colisee in Quebec City, Quebec.
Oshawa's Cole Cassels (Vancouver Canucks) beat Quebec's Kurt Etchegary on a faceoff on the right side of the Quebec zone, winning the puck back to Desrocher, No. 145 on NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters for the 2015 draft. Desrocher gloved the puck, dropped it on his stick, cut around a rushing Etchegary and found space in the right circle. His high shot beat Quebec goaltender Zachary Fucale (Montreal Canadiens) under the crossbar, past his glove.
"All the boys played a great game, and I guess I was the lucky guy to get the final one," Desrocher said, according to The Canadian Press. "I knew I didn't have a shooting lane at first and I tried to get around a guy and just tried to get it on net and it went in."
