Bryan Cameron and the Barrie Colts continue to dominate Ontario Hockey League's Central Division.
Bryan Cameron scored three goals and Mavric Parks posted his second shutout of the season as the Barrie Colts triumphed over the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors 4-0 Friday night.
Cameron, a native of Brampton, Ont., put the Colts ahead 1-0 with a power-play goal late in the first period. He completed the hat trick with an unassisted marker and another power-play goal less than three minutes apart in the final period to raise his goal total to 36 on the season.
"We're a good team overall," said Cameron after the Colts moved 10 points ahead of the second-place Majors in the Central Division standings. "We're pretty strong up front and every game, it always seems that different lines step up.
"We knew this game wasn't going to be easy," continued Cameron. "We put in a lot of work and we were able to sneak a few past their goalie."
Parks, acquired by the Colts in a trade with Kitchener on Jan. 11, stopped 23 shots for his first shutout since joining Barrie.
