Scheifele with five points as Colts edge IceDogs

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Mark Scheifele's five-point game lifted the Barrie Colts to a 6-5 victory over the host Niagara IceDogs in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
