Brett Hope Assists on Overtime Winner to Capture Jr. B Title
Blenheim’s Brett Hope assisted on the overtime winner in last night’s game 7 victory for his St. Thomas Stars in the Western Conference Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League Championship series.
Cole Jenner scored the goal 34 seconds into overtime to lift the St. Thomas Stars to a 3-2 win over the London Nationals.
Throughout the playoffs, Brett Hope sits second on the St. Thomas Stars in scoring with 18 points in 16 games.
The win came after St. Thomas defeated London 4-1 in game six, following three consecutive overtime losses to London allowing the Nationals back into the series and forcing a game 7.
Brett Hope and the St. Thomas Stars are now headed to the Ontario Final Sutherland Cup. The team will play a round robin against winners from each of the other Jr.B Conferences from across Ontario. The Stars join the Niagara Canucks and Elmira Sugar Kings who previously advanced to the Sutherland Cup.
