Mississauga's Day moves past 'exceptional' label

Thursday, 10.29.2015 / 3:00 AM / Prospects

Aaron Vickers - Correspondent

Every Thursday, will look ahead to the 2016 NHL Draft with an in-depth profile on one of its top prospects.

Mississauga Steelheads defenseman Sean Day doesn't necessarily want to be known as exceptional. The 2016 NHL Draft prospect would prefer to be himself.

Day still is trying to move past the heightened expectations of being granted exceptional-player status and allowed to play in the Ontario Hockey League as a 15-year-old in 2013.

"To this day there's still pressure about it," Day said. "I'm kind of scrutinized more than anyone else because of that label. I can't really make excuses for it. I just kind of play and hopefully people see that I'm the same age as everyone else in the draft. I did play an extra year [in the OHL], but I'm on the same development curve as everyone else still. To me it doesn't really matter. I don't think too much about it. I just play."

The Washington Capitals opened the scoring at 1:28 of the third period, but Beau Bennett tied the game 24 seconds later and Phil Kessel scored the go-ahead goal less than two minutes after that to help the Pittsburgh Penguins improve to 5-1-0 in their last six games following a 0-3-0 start to the season.

* Kessel, who scored the overtime winner on Saturday at Nashville, has the winning goal in consecutive games for the second time in his career. He also accomplished the feat with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Oct. 8 and Oct. 15, 2011 (3-1—4 vs. the Ottawa Senators and 2-1—3 vs. Calgary Flames, respectively).

* Marc-Andre Fleury made 33 saves, including 27 in the first two periods, to improve to 11-4-2 in 17 regular-season appearances at Verizon Center (2.54 GAA, .913 SV%, 1 SO). Fleury started his ninth consecutive game to begin the season, the second-longest such streak of his career (11 in 2006-07).
