NHL.com @NHL

LONDON, Ont. - Jake Patterson stopped 29 shots, including a penalty shot, in his first Ontario Hockey League start as the London Knights beat the Guelph Storm 5-1 Saturday.

Patterson also had an assist for the Knights (8-1-0).

Patterson's previous regular-season OHL experience was a four-minute stint on Oct. 1 when starter Michael Houser had to leave his crease due to a broken skate.

It didn't show Saturday, as Patterson stopped Guelph's Cody McNaughton on a penalty shot with just under six minutes left in game.

Patterson?s goals-against average is now 0.93.

Houser received the night off as London is playing its first three-straight-day schedule of the campaign ? next at Sarnia on Sunday afternoon.

London's offence was paced by Dane Fox, who had a goal and two assists in the second period. Max Domi, Josh Anderson, Jared Knight and Seth Griffith with a team-leading eighth, rounded out London?s scoring.

Chris Tierney chipped in two assists for the Knights, ranked No. 1 in the Canadian Hockey League.

Matt Finn replied for Guelph (4-3-2), which at one point had went more than 114 minutes without scoring dating back to a win over Saginaw on Oct. 9.

Brandon Foote made 43 saves for the Storm.
