The Race to 100 Points is On

Last night, two OHL draft eligible players produced to move them closer to the 100 point plateu in their draft year.

The Kitchener Rangers Jason Akeson (Ducks) has alread reached the mark and sits at 103. Ottawa's Tyler Toffoli (LA Kings), who was held off the score sheet last night, sits second at 95.

But Niagara's Ryan Strome, a projected top 10 pick in the upcoming NHL Draft, recorded a goal last night to move him to 93 points.

Toffoli's Ottawa team mate, Shane Prince, another projected first rounder, recorded 3 assists last evening to give him 85 points on the season. Both Strome and Prince missed some time due to injury, with Strome playing in 57 games and Prince 55.

Prince has shown to be able to put points up in bunches, so closing the 8 point gap between he and Strome is a possibility, but a difficult one.

Strome's Ice Dogs entertain Sudbury on Thursday and Sarnia on Saturday while Prince's 67's Barrie on Friday and Kitchener on Sunday.
