Broll, Staples lead the Greyhounds over the 67's

OTTAWA - David Broll had a goal and an assist as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds downed the host Ottawa 67's 4-1 on Thursday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Dylan Staples also had a goal and an assist for the Greyhounds (20-17-2) while Mark Petaccio and Ryan Sproul each scored once.

Sault Ste Marie's head coach Sheldon Keefe, who had spent the past six seasons coaching in the Central Canada Hockey League with the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the Ottawa Valley, was pleased with how his team played in his return to the Ottawa area.

"It was nice that the team responded with an effort like that." Keefe said. "It meant a lot to me to come back and win with so many family and friends."

Tyler Graovac scored the lone goal for the 67's (11-26-3), who now sit one point behind the Peterborough Petes for last place in the East Division.

Matt Murray made 21 saves for the win as Clint Windsor, the much busier of the two goaltenders, stopped 47-of-51 shots in defeat.

Sault Ste. Marie went 1 for 4 on the power play while Ottawa failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
