OHL Roundup: A look at Saturday's games

Garret Sparks turned away 42 shots in regulation and overtime and then all five shooters in the shootout Saturday as the Guelph Storm edged the host London Knights 4-3 in the Ontario Hockey League.

The 19-year-old Toronto Maple Leafs prospect has faced 480 shots in 14 games so far this season, which is second most in the OHL behind the Erie Otters' Oscar Dansk.

Brock McGinn scored the winning goal in the fifth round of the shootout for the Storm (10-3-1), who lead the Midwest Division by one point over the Owen Sound Attack.

Tyler Bertuzzi, Ben Harpur and Andrey Pedan all scored in regulation for Guelph.

Seth Griffith led the Knights (8-4-2) offensively with two goals and an assist while Josh Anderson scored the other goal for London.

Defenceman Olli Maatta chipped in with two assists.

In just his third start of the season, Jake Paterson stopped 20 shots in a losing cause.

Guelph went 0-for-5 on the power play, while London went 1-for-8.
