OHL Roundup: A look at Friday's games

Michael Moffat hopes the Kingston Frontenacs' season opener is a sign of good things to come.

The 19-year-old defenceman scored once and set up two more as Kingston defeated the visiting Barrie Colts 3-1 on Friday in Ontario Hockey league action.

"This is a good stepping stone for the year here," said Moffat. "A great start for us and a confidence boost for the team."

Last season Kingston won just 19 games and finished 23 points out of the final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.

Cody Alcock and Sam Bennett also scored for the Frontenacs (1-0-0).

Mark Scheifele scored the lone goal for the Colts (1-1-0), who were coming off a 6-4 victory against the Ottawa 67's on Thursday night.

"We just didn't come in with an attitude to win," said Scheifele. "We came out slow. We underestimated them and we need to get better."

Mike Morrison made 27 saves for the victory while Mathias Neiderberger turned away 31 shots in a losing effort.

Kingston went 2 for 6 on the power play while Barrie scored once on six chances with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Belleville 3, Sarnia 1; Sault Ste. Marie 6, Plymouth 5; Niagara 2, Brampton 1 (SO); Guelph 4, Saginaw 3 (OT); London 8, Erie 2; Kitchener 3, Mississauga 0; and Sudbury 4, Oshawa 2.

At Kingston, Moffat opened the scoring 6:38 into the game and Alcock added a power-play goal at 19:19 to give the Frontenacs a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Bennet scored the lone goal of the second period, by way of power play at 4:13, to increase Kingston's lead to three goals.

Scheifele scored on the power play at 14:14 of the third period to end Morrison's shutout bid.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
