EDMONTON, AB - Guelph Storm defenceman Dmitri Samorukov is still kickin' up dust.
The Oilers 2017 third-round selection nabbed a helper on Nick Suzuki's power-play goal at 10:16 to make it a 3-2 deficit in Game 1 of the 2019 Rogers Ontario Hockey League Championship Series against the Ottawa 67's.
Samorukov finished the night plus-1 with three shots on goal in the Storm's 7-2 loss. The Russian is first in OHL defence scoring with eight goals, 14 assists and 22 points in 19 outings.
Meanwhile in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Ostap Safin's Halifax Mooseheads lost Game 1 of their President Cup Final series versus the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.
