OHL Roundup: A look at Thursday's games

Mark Visentin got all the offensive support he needed for his league-leading eighth shutout of the season.

Visentin made 18 saves and Alex Friesen had two goals and three assists as the Niagara IceDogs hammered the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors 11-0 in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

Andrew Agozzino added a hat-trick, including two short-handed goals, and Ryan Strome scored a pair for the Central Division-leading IceDogs (33-15-3), who went up 6-0 in the first period. Jamie Oleksiak, Myles Doan and Brett Ritchie also scored.

Oleksiak, who finished the game plus-7, and Strome both had four points apiece.

The IceDogs entered the game with the OHL's best power play and finished the night 3-for-5 with the man advantage.

Mississauga (22-24-6) managed only three shots on goal in the first period, and five in the second.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: London 5 Windsor 0; Peterborough 5 Ottawa 4 (OT); Sarnia 3 Barrie 2 (SO); and Owen Sound 4 Brampton 2.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
