Ethan Werek and the Kingston Frontenacs spolied Stan Butler's milestone game.

Werek scored a pair of goals and added an assist as the Frontenacs cruised to a 5-1 win over the Brampton Battalion in Ontario Hockey League action Thursday night.

It Brampton coach Butler's 900th OHL game behind the bench. But there would be no celebrating, as the game was essentially wrapped up in the first period.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Peterborough 7 Sarnia 3; Windsor 4 Plymouth 2; Barrie 5 Sudbury 0; and Niagara 6 Saginaw 3.

At Brampton, Kingston jumped out to an early 1-0 lead 4:32 into the game on a short-handed effort from Erik Gudbranson, who took a feed from Werek and beat Patrick Killeen on a high wrist shot.

The Battalion power-play rebounded later in the period, tying things up at the 17:56 mark, when Ken Peroff's low shot from the point trickled through Tyler Beskorowany's pads.

The Frontenacs (9-11-2) regained the lead with 13 seconds left in the opening period. Kaine Geldart converted a Zach Harnden pass for his first goal in a Kingston uniform.

That was the last goal Kingston would need, as Werek's two goals and a third-period marker from Harnden rounded out the scoring.

Beskorowany made 21 saves for Kingston.

Killeen surrendered five goals on 26 shots fro Brampton (8-10-2) before being replaced. Jacob Riley stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief.
