Carrick scores in OT as Whalers beat Storm

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Connor Carrick scored 2:29 into overtime as the Plymouth Whalers came from behind to beat the visiting Guelph Storm 3-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.

Mitchell Heard scored his first goal for the Whalers (19-12-8) since being reassigned by the Colorado Avalanche this past week and Garrett Meurs had the other.

Justin Auger and Patrick Watling gave the Storm (21-12-5) a 2-0 lead early in the first period before Plymouth found its offence.

Alex Nedeljkovic made 25 saves for the win as Keegan Wilson stopped 26 shots in defeat.

Plymouth went 1 for 2 on the power play while Guelph failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
