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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
