NOJHL announces  Eastlink TV 3 Stars of the Week

SUDBURY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced today that  the Rayside-Balfour Canadians trio of Ryan Erickson, Jessie Morin and Otis Goldman have been named the Eastlink TV 3 Stars of the week for the period ending Nov. 8.

RYAN ERICKSON, (F) RAYSIDE-BALFOUR CANADIANS – The 20-year-old Sudbury product was instrumental in the Canadians perfect week as they knocked off three of the top four teams in the NOJHL standings.

Erickson began by tallying twice and adding an assist as Rayside-Balfour won in double overtime Friday at Elliot Lake.

One night later he notched the game-winner and set-up another marker to help lead his side to a 4-2 victory over Powassan, handing the Voodoos just their second loss all season.

The Canadians forward then capped off his week with an assist in a 4-2 triumph over the red-hot Soo Thunderbirds, snapping that club’s 12-game winning streak.

Erickson is averaging over a point-per-game while also pacing Rayside-Balfour in offensive production with 26 points on nine goals and 17 assists.

JESSIE MORIN, (G) RAYSIDE-BALFOUR CANADIANS – Morin also played a big role in the Canadians big week by winning both of his starts in earning victories on the road at Elliot Lake and at home vs. Powassan.

The 20-year-old from Haileybury, Ont., made 44 saves in Friday’s double OT decision against the Wildcats Friday at Centennial Arena.

Saturday night he turned aside 35 more attempts as Rayside-Balfour edged Powassan.

Morin finished the week with a solid .928 save percentage and remains unbeaten on home ice so far in 2015-16.

OTIS GOLDMAN, (F) RAYSIDE-BALFOUR CANADIANS – Making the most of his early presence with the Canadians, the 20-year-old product of Vancouver, B.C., has nine points in his first four games with Rayside-Balfour.

Goldman began his week by doling out three assists in the road win at Elliot Lake Friday.

He then notched tallies in each of the next two contests aiding the Canadians efforts in upending the high-flying Voodoos of Powassan and the surging Thunderbirds from Sault Ste. Marie respectively.
