OHL Roundup: Saturday's action

NHL.com @NHL

The rough stuff continued as the Windsor Spitfires dominated another team.

Dale Mitchell scored twice and as the Windsor Spitfires defeated the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4-1 in Ontario Hockey League play Saturday night.

The game became physical during the second period when Windsor's Taylor Hall and Sault Ste. Marie's Carson Dubchak fought while the Spitfires' Adam Henrique and the Sault's Brock Beukeboom went toe-to-toe.

Hall and Dubchak received fighting majors and game misconducts for being involved in the second fight of the same stoppage, which will result in two-game suspensions for both players.

Windsor's Jack Kassian was suspended indefinitely by the OHL on Friday after being assessed a major for charging Barrie's Matt Kennedy during Thursday's game against the Colts.

Ten seconds after the Hall-Dubchak bout Jordan Nolan received two minutes for instigating, five minutes for fighting and a game misconduct for jumping Windsor's Mitchell. The overage Spitfire forward left the ice favouring his right leg and did not return to the game.

The hostilities continued as there were three more fights in the third period.

Elsewhere in the OHL, it was: Erie 4 Sarnia 3; Peterborough 7 Kingston 4; Plymouth 3 Niagara 0; Windsor 4 Sault Ste. Marie 1; Mississauga 4 Oshawa 1; London 4 Belleville 2; and Sudbury 4 Owen Sound 3 (OT).
