With a helper on his team's first goal, Suzuki surpassed Martin St. Pierre for most points in a playoff run by a Guelph player.

His 38 points in just 22 playoff games is not only a Storm record, but it's also the first time since 2017 that an Ontario Hockey League player has racked up that many points. The last player to do it was current Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat, who registered 38 points in 22 games with the Erie Otters that spring.
