To prepare, here are three reasons why this OHL showdown is a must-watch on TV:

One of the most prolific players on the Tour, Battalion top right winger Brandon Coe brings tantalizing power forward play mixed with a dynamic scoring touch where, in 47 appearances this season, he holds No. OHL scorers with 30 goals and 48 assists. for 78 points. Already with 12 points to his name in seven games in February, Coe is a name to circle against the 67 as in the previous five meetings this season he has found the scoresheet each time, tallying two goals and five assists . Signing with the San Jose Sharks last December as an undrafted free agent, that deal came to fruition after Coe was loaned out last season to the Sharks’ minor league affiliate in which he showed an intriguing advantage by collecting five points in 17 games.

All eyes on Nelson

Originally chosen atop the 2020 OHL Priority Selection, Nelson made his battalion debut this fall. Now in the midst of a strong first season, the budding defenseman came away with six goals and 31 assists for 37 points on 47 showings, good for team leading scorers among North Bay fullbacks and fifth best among fellow defensemen. league-wide. Although undersized for his position, Nelson brings powerful play from the back that allows him to show off his attacking skills, which have seen him pick up a pair of points in five previous encounters against 67 this season.

Ranked 46th among North American skaters according to Central Scouting’s midterm evaluation, heading into the 2022 NHL Draft, Rohrer will certainly rely on his 67-year-old teammates who have already lived the experience, a list that is highlighted by fellow forwards Jack Beck, a 2021 Calgary Flames sixth-round pick, as well as new rookie Tyler Boucher, who heard his name spoken by the Ottawa Senators during of the first round of the NHL Draft last summer.
