The Ontario Hockey League has named the players who will suit up against the Russians in this year’s head-to-head series.
Team OHL will ice two squads for games in Owen Sound (Thursday, Nov. 9) and Sudbury (Monday, Nov. 13).
Barrie native Jacob Ingham, a 17-year-old goaltender for the Mississauga Steelheads, is one of two netminders for the Owen Sound game. He has been paired with Dylan Wells from the Peterborough Petes.
Ingham has had a rough start to the season, his second in the league, with an 0-5 record, 4.80 goals-against average and .854 save percentage. His Steelheads team sits in last place in the Central Division standings with a 1-7 record.
For the Sudbury game, Midhurst native and Wolves forward Macauley Carson will dress for his home-team crowd, alongside Soo Greyhounds forward and former Barrie Colts ‘AAA’ star Morgan Frost.
Carson, 18, is in his third season with the Wolves, who have a 2-6-2 so far this season. He has only dressed in one game this season, but last year scored 30 goals and added 20 assists while playing in all 68 regular-season games.
Frost, who was drafted in the first round by the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers last summer, has three goals and seven assists in 10 games with the Greyhounds this year, his third season in Sault Ste. Marie. Last season, the Aurora native had 24 goals and 42 assists in 67 games.
