Mississauga Steelheads hammer Belleville Bulls 6-1 in OHL action

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Stuart Percy, Damian Bourne and Riley Brace each had a goal and an assist Wednesday as the Mississauga Steelheads thumped the Belleville Bulls 6-1 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Lucas Venuto, Brett Foy and Spenser Cobbold also scored for the Steelheads (7-4-1), who got 25 saves from Spencer Martin.

Daniil Zharkov replied for Belleville (7-4-1).

Tied 1-1 after the first, Mississauga scored three goals in the second period to open things up.

Bourne got his first in the OHL and Brace followed that up with a power-play goal. Venuto then also added his first career goal after stepping over the Belleville blue-line and ripping a shot past Charlie Graham.

Graham was replaced by Malcolm Subban to start the third after making 16 saves on 20 shots.

Subban gave up goals in the third period to Foy and Cobbold, finishing the night with 10 saves.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
