Erie's Fox wins OHL overage award after scoring 64 goals in 67 games

TORONTO - Erie Otters forward Dane Fox has been named the Ontario Hockey League's overage player of the year.

Fox finished second in league scoring behind teammate Connor Brown with 107 points in 67 games, including a league-high 64 goals — the most scored in the OHL since New York Islanders star John Tavares scored 72 in 2006-07 with the Oshawa Generals.

"I'm pretty overwhelmed and honoured to receive this award," Fox said. "There were a lot of great players up for this. I am pretty excited to be taking this home, but I am still focused on the main goal. I want to win a championship in my final OHL season, that's the trophy I want."

The 20-year-old from Thamesville, Ont., played five OHL seasons beginning with the London Knights who selected him in the third round of the 2009 OHL Priority Selection Draft.

He joined the Otters midway through the 2011-12 season and has played in a total of 243 career OHL games, recording 118 goals and 108 assists for 226 points.

He signed an entry-level contract with the NHL's Vancouver Canucks in December.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
