Biggs, Dal Colle score their first OHL goals as the Generals down the Petes 5-1

OSHAWA, Ont. - Tyler Biggs and Michael Dal Colle both scored their first Ontario Hockey League goals as the Oshawa Generals downed the visiting Peterborough Petes 5-1 on Friday in OHL action.

Biggs, a first-round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs who played NCAA hockey last season, scored off a nice feed from Oshawa captain Boone Jenner early in the second period.

Jenner also earned an assist on Dal Colle's goal, which was an easy backhand off a rebound.

Scott Laughton and Geoffrey Schemitsch each had a goal and an assist for the Generals (2-1-0), while Lucas Lessio added a single goal.

Francis Menard had the lone goal for the Petes (2-2-0) and it came late in the first period on a five-on-three man advantage.

The Generals dominated the Petes, outshooting them 47-23, and have now won nine of the last 10 head-to-head meetings dating back to last season.

Daniel Altshuller earned the win in goal for Oshawa while Michael Giugovaz took the loss.

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

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
