London left wing Matthew Tkachuk, No. 1 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of North American skaters for the 2016 NHL Draft, had his 100th point of the season in an 8-2 win against Kitchener on Tuesday.

Tkachuk had an assist on a third-period goal by Aaron Berisha. He has 25 goals and 75 assists in 52 games this season. He's the 26th first-year OHL player with 100 points.

His 100 points are fourth in the OHL. Barrie's Kevin Labanc (San Jose Sharks) leads the league with 119 points. Tkachuk's London teammates Christian Dvorak (Arizona Coyotes) with 115 points and Mitchell Marner (Toronto Maple Leafs) with 109 points are second and third.

DeBrincat, who has 44 goals and 86 points in 54 games this season, is No. 20 on Central Scouting's midterm ranking of North American skaters.

Tkachuk, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound son of United States Hockey Hall of Fame member Keith Tkachuk, also extended his point streak to 14 games, during which he has nine goals and 30 points.
