Brandon Maxwell made an immediate impact in his debut with the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors.

The overage netminder, acquired in a trade with the Sarnia Sting earlier in the day, made 40 saves to lead his new team to a 3-2 shootout victory over the visiting Brampton Battalion in Ontario Hockey League action Friday.

"I thought Maxwell was great," said Majors head coach James Boyd. "He made some really good saves and showed his experience."

Jordan Mayer scored the shootout winner for Mississauga (18-15-5), while Jamie Wise and Sergey Kuptsov had goals in regulation.

Barclay Goodrow scored twice for Brampton (22-10-6), which has earned a point in 10 straight games.

Battalion goalie Matej Machovsky made 36 saves in a losing effort.

The Majors scored once on six power-play opportunities, while the Battalion went 1-for-4 with the man advantage.
