CHL Daily: Dumais scores 50th goal as 67’s secure OHL regular season crown

CHL Three Stars

Ryan Winterton’s (SEA) first OHL hat-trick earned him Friday’s first start as he led London to a 6-3 win over Kingston. Winterton, who also collected an assist in the win, helped Hamilton to the J. Ross Robertson Trophy a year ago and after he missed the first half of the season through injury, the Kraken prospect has 12 goals and 32 points in 31 games with London.

A second hat-trick of the season from Jagger Firkus (SEA) earned him the night’s second star as Moose Jaw beat Regina 9-5. Firkus’ 36 goals and 80 points match his totals from last season, in four fewer games.

Connor Bedard’s insane season continued Friday as he collected the third star after a five-point (3G, 2A) outing against the Warriors. It was Bedard’s eighth hat-trick of the season as he continues to lead the CHL in goals (66) and points (134).
