NOJHL announces Eastlink TV 3 Stars of the Week
SUDBURY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Monday that Dustin Cordeiro of the Cochrane Crunch along with Jessie Morin and Jimmy Roy of the Sudbury Nickel Barons have been named the Eastlink TV 3 Stars of the week for the period ending March 15.
DUSTIN CORDEIRO, (F) COCHRANE CRUNCH – The 19-year-old Kitchener, Ont., product started the NOJHL playoffs with a flourish by notching a hat trick and dishing out two assists in Cochrane’s postseason-opening 5-2 victory over Abitibi in Game 1 of the East Division semifinal.
Cordeiro followed that up by adding another marker in the 5-4 overtime decision the Crunch had over the Eskimos in Game 2 of their best-of-seven set.
In combined regular season and playoff action, the Cochrane forward became the second player in the league to surpass the 50-goal plateau joining teammate Cody Gratton in that department.
Cordeiro will look to improve on his offensive totals tonight as the Crunch host Abitibi in Game 3 of their series at the Tim Horton Event Centre.
JESSIE MORIN, (G) SUDBURY NICKEL BARONS – A big reason why Sudbury is up 2-0 on Elliot Lake in their playoff match-up has been the play of Nickel Barons netminder Jessie Morin.
The 19-year-old from Haileybury, Ont., has combined to make 77 saves on 80 shots in the first two contests vs. the Wildcats to help his side go up a pair heading into Game 3 of their West Division semifinal this evening in Elliot Lake.
Entering the second week of the playoffs, Morin sits second among all NOJHL goaltenders in save percentage at .963 and third in goals-against average at 1.50.
JIMMY ROY, (F) SUDBURY NICKEL BARONS – Offensively for the Nickel Barons the 20-year-old Sudbury native has chipped in with a pair of sold nights on both ends of the ice to help his side get the early jump on Elliot Lake in their series.
In Game 1, Roy made a nice pass to earn an assist and tie the score at 1-1 just five seconds after the Wildcats had opened the scoring in helping Sudbury come back and take the series opener Friday.
Saturday night he tallied twice and set-up the game-winner as the Nickel Barons skated to a 5-2 victory at McClelland Arena.
Roy’s four points ties him for the team lead in scoring after two postseason outings.
