Tyler Seguin can't be kept silent for long.

Held off the scoresheet for the first time this season against the London Knights on Friday, the Ontario Hockey League's leading scorer added five more points on Saturday night, including a hat trick as the Plymouth Whalers demolished the Sudbury Wolves 9-2.

Seguin, projected as a top-five pick in the 2010 NHL entry draft, rebounded from Friday's effort with his third hat trick in 10 games this season. The Brampton, Ont., native has 25 points and leads all scorers by five goals with 14.

After John MacFarland opened the scoring for the Wolves with a short-handed marker six minutes into the game, Plymouth responded by scoring the next seven goals of the game, including a pair of power-play goals in the first period.

Myles McCauley scored twice and added an assist, Garrett Meurs had a goal and two assists, while Leo Jenner, Mitchell Heard and Tyler J. Brown also scored for the Whalers (6-4-0).

Kristoff Kontos scored the other goal for Sudbury (4-4-1).

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Owen Sound 6 Sault Ste. Marie 3; Barrie 7 Erie 4; and Saginaw 8 Belleville 3.

At Plymouth, Mich., Seguin's first goal of the game, scored seven minutes into the second period to give the Whalers a 5-1 lead, chased Wolves starter Alain Valiquette from the net.

Valiquette finished with 15 saves on 20 shots. His replacement, Andrew Loverock, allowed four goals on 28 shots.

Matt Hackett made 30 saves for Plymouth.
