OHL Roundup: Charlie Graham makes 57 saves as Belleville beats Kingston 6-3

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - Charlie Graham stopped 57 shots for the Belleville Bulls in a 6-3 win over the Kingston Frontenacs in the lone Ontario Hockey League game Wednesday.

Graham was especially good in the third period when Kingston failed to score despite outshooting the Bulls 25-13.

Garrett Hooey scored twice and had two assists for Belleville (5-12-4), while Remie Elie, Jordan Subban, Adam Laishram and Scott Simmonds added a goal apiece.

Slater Doggett, Darcy Greenaway and Roland McKeown replied for Kingston (10-7-3).

The Frontenacs couldn't match Graham in net. Starter Lucas Peressini was pulled after allowing three goals on 16 shots. His replacement, Matt Mahalak, stopped 31-of-33 shots.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
