Garret Ross scores hat trick as Saginaw Spirit beat Windsor Spitfires 4-2

WINDSOR, Ont. - Garret Ross scored three goals as the Saginaw Spirit defeated the Windsor Spitfires 4-2 in Ontario Hockey League action Monday night.

Eric Locke had the other goal for the Spirit (28-23-6), who defeated the Spitfires (22-28-7) for the second time in two games.

The game was preceded by a 10-minute ceremony in honour of Mickey Renaud, the 19-year-old team captain of the Spitfires and Calgary Flames prospect who passed away five years ago due to a heart ailment. As part of the ceremony, the Mickey Renaud Memorial Scholarships were presented to local students by Renaud's parents, Mark and Jane.

Josh Ho-Sang and Mitch Graham, with the first goal of his OHL career, scored for the Spitfires, who wore special jerseys to pay tribute to Renaud.

Saginaw goaltender Jordan Dekort and Windsor's Jake Paterson each made 31 saves in net.

The loss extended the Spitfires' losing streak to five games.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
