OSHAWA – Boone Jenner continued his MVP-calibre season for the Oshawa Generals Sunday afternoon at the General Motors Centre.
The 19-year-old Oshawa captain scored twice, upping his OHL-leading total to 24 goals, and assisted on a third as the Generals dominated a hot Niagara IceDogs team and prevailed 3-1.
Despite being reduced to 10 forwards thanks to recent upper-body injuries to Cole Cassels and Bradely Latour, the Generals controlled the game from start to finish and out-shot the IceDogs 38-25.
With it, Oshawa kept pace with the Belleville Bulls (14-8-3-0) atop the OHL’s East Division, improving to 14-10-1-2.
The IceDogs, meanwhile, dropped to 17-8-1-1 with their first regulation loss in seven games.
Tyler Biggs also had another strong game for the Generals with a goal and an assist, while goalie Daniel Altshuller was steady and made several key stops among his 24.
The IceDogs spoiled Altshuller’s bid for a second career OHL shutout when Steven Shipley scored a power-play goal with 5:12 left in regulation.
Ryan Strome picked up an assist on the goal, giving him a league-best 51 points, including 30 in 11 November games.
The IceDogs are in Belleville Wednesday.
