ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Rookie centre Ben Hughes beat Jordan Binnington in the fifth round of the shootout Thursday as the Niagara IceDogs defeated the Owen Sound Attack 3-2 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Both Binnington and IceDogs goaltender Christopher Festarini were perfect through four rounds of the shootout before Hughes clinched the victory.

Daniel Catenacci and Chris Bigras replied for Owen Sound (25-12-3). Binnington made 23 saves in the loss, his first game since returning from the world junior hockey championship in Russia.

The IceDogs finished the night 1-for-6 on the power play, while the Attack went 1-for-4.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
