GUELPH, Ont. - Tyler Bertuzzi scored twice as the Guelph Storm defeated the visiting Erie Otters 6-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Jason Dickinson and Zack Mitchell scored a goal apiece to round out Guelph's offence.

You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
