EDMONTON, AB - Oilers forward prospect Ryan McLeod scored an insurance marker at 16:08 of the second period in the Saginaw Spirit's series-deciding 5-0 win over the Soo Greyhounds on Sunday.
The Oilers 40th-overall selection in the 2018 NHL Draft notched his fourth goal and 10th point of the 2019 OHL Playoffs on the play, helping the Spirit take the series 4-2. The forward walked in from the slot and released a wrister to beat netminder Matthew Villalta.
McLeod collected 19 goals and 62 points in 63 games split between Saginaw and the Mississauga Steelheads during the 2018-19 regular season.
Saginaw's win marks the first time in franchise history the club has reached the OHL Western Conference Finals.
