MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Centre Tyler Seguin scored a pair of goals and had two assists to power the Plymouth Whalers to a 5-1 victory over the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors in the Ontario Hockey League Friday night.
Seguin, locked in a battle with Windsor's Taylor Hall for the individual scoring race in the OHL, scored his 32nd and 33rd goals of the season and also set up Robbie Czarnik and Joe Gaynor as the Whalers (27-20-1) extended their current winning streak to three games.
James Livingston scored the other goal for the Whalers. Czarnik also contributed a pair of assists in the Plymouth triumph.
"I'm just working hard and trying to perfect my play so that I can show the scouts I can play at the next level," said Seguin, rated second to Hall in the recently-released player rankings heading into the NHL draft in June.
Seguin's four-point night gave him 75 points on the season and allowed him to open up a five-point lead over Hall in the scoring race.
Jordan Mayer scored the only goal for the Majors (31-10-5), who lost back-to-back games in regulation for the first time this season. It was Mayer's 20th goal this year.
The Whalers had 30 shots at Mississauga netminder Chris Carrozzi. Matt Hackett made 27 saves in the Plymouth net.
