Stars forward prospect Ty Dellandrea is on a nice individual run in the Ontario Hockey League, but his team is not.
Dellandrea, the Stars' first-round pick (13th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft, has put together a seven-game points streak (four goals, eight assists), giving him 17 points (six goals, 11 assists) in 17 games this season.
The 18-year-old Dellandrea's team is a different story. The Flint Firebirds are 0-16-1 and have been outscored 38-104, ranking last in the league in goals for and goals against. Still, Dellandrea and the Firebirds are a scrappy bunch. This past week they took on the top three teams in the OHL standings and were competitive at times despite some tough circumstances.
