Friday Five: Top Five Point Streaks

aohl-friday-five-resave

The OHL has always featured high scoring teams and players, but once in a while, certain players go one step beyond, and become scoring dynamos during a stretch. Sometimes it can be a top tier NHL prospect, sometimes it can be a 2nd liner who just gets hot. Whoever they are, here are the top five most impressive point streaks of the OHL season so far.

Adam Mascherin

Oct.10-Oct.30: 9GP, 8G 13A 21Pts

Highlight: Oct.10, GUE@KIT, 1G 3A 4Pts

After scoring 81 points last season, nobody was doubting the former 2nd overall pickin the OHL draft’s scoring ability, and if there were any doubters, they were very quiet after this nine gam stretch. Fresh off of becoming a Florida Panthers draftee, Mascherin continued to show off his ability to feed his teammates, while possessing a wicked shot of his own. With Kitchener seemingly playing a more offensive style this year, his another strek like this one is a possibility.

Cliff Pu

Oct.7-Present: 10GP, 8G 11A 19Pts

Highlight: Oct.9, LDN@WSR, 1G 2A 3Pts

When Cliff Pu had a total of nine points during his rookie year in the OHL, some questioned whether he would develop beyond being a solid two-way player. Two years later, he’s the leading scorer for the high-powered London Knights. A Buffalo Sabres pick, Pu has taken the big step from being a complementary piece on a Memorial Cup champ, to being the star of the show.

Ryan Moore

Sept.21-Oct.15: 10GP, 10G 11A 21Pts

Highlight: Sept.21, SAG@FLNT, 2G 2A 4Pts

While the Flint Firebirds have cooled since, they got off to a fantastic start to the year, and Moore was a big part of it. Setting the tone with four points on opening night, the Firebirds have still been better than expected. Now that teams have keyed in on Moore, he’s in a bit of a slump, so now the challenge for Moore is finding different ways to beat opposing checkers.

Jeremy Bracco

Oct.7-Present: 12GP, 9G 16A 25Pts

Highlight: Oct.10, GUE@KIT, 3G 2A 5Pts

After a solid debut with the Kitchener Rangers last season, Bracco had many wondering what he could do for an encore. While his numbers were good, they were a far cry from the kind of numbers Bracco put up as a member of the US National Development Team. This season, he started out with a bang and never really slowed down, as his point streak dates back to his first game of the season, helping lead Kitchener to an excellent start.

Taylor Raddysh

Oct.1-Present: 13GP, 12G 19A 31Pts

Highlight: Oct.19, ER@NIA, 2G 2A 4Pts

Easily the most impressive scoring streak belongs to Raddysh, who has been lights out since his very first game this season. In fact, he has had multiple points in all but four games during his torrid start, including back-to-back four point games against London and Niagara. With Erie in a groove since the return of the Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick, he and running mate Alex DeBrincat should continue to rack up the points.
