OHL Roundup: A look at Sunday's games @NHLdotcom

An unlikely candidate led the Ottawa 67's offence on Sunday afternoon.

Jake Cardwell scored twice and set up one more as the 67's defeated the visiting Belleville Bulls 6-1 in Ontario Hockey League action.

Cardwell, a fourth-year defenceman, had never recorded a multi-goal game before despite playing in 198 OHL contests.

"It's always good to get two goals but more importantly we played a full 60 minutes and got a win," said Cardwell.

Shane Prince and Mike Cazzola each had a goal and two assists for the 67's (26-11-5), who sit one point ahead of the Brampton Battalion for first in the Eastern Conference, while Tyler Toffoli and Dalton Smith added the others.

For Toffoli, it was his league-leading 34th goal in just 39 games played.

Joseph Cramarossa scored the lone goal for the Bulls (22-19-1), who have now dropped back-to-back games.

Ottawa's Petr Mrazek made 37 saves for the win while at the other end Charlie Graham stopped 34 shots in defeat.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Brampton 5, Erie 2; Saginaw 4, Mississauga 2; Sudbury 3, Oshawa 2; Kitchener 5, Kingston 2; and London 6, Sault Ste. Marie 2.

At Ottawa, the 67's jumped out to a 5-0 lead and never looked back.

Cardwell opened the scoring 7:47 into the game.

Toffoli doubled the lead at 11:01 and Prince scored 59 seconds later to give Ottawa a 3-0 advantage after 20 minutes of play.

Smith scored at 8:54 of the middle period and Cardwell followed him up with his second of the contest at 9:44.

Cramarossa put Belleville on the board at 13:10, however Cazzola scored at 18:32 to make it 6-1 heading into the third period.

The Bulls outshot the 67's 14-8 in the final period, but Mrazek stopped everything he faced to maintain a five-goal victory.
