The month of November saw some pretty good performances from Ontario Hockey League players eligible for the 2017 National Hockey League draft but one player’s performance was above and beyond the rest. That performance belongs to Nick Suzuki of the Owen Sound Attack.
Suzuki netted ten goals and added as many assists in twelve November games for the Attack, easily the best offensive performance by draft eligible players. Suzuki was held off the score sheet just twice. His ten goals came on 49 shots – good for a 20.4 shooting percentage. Suzuki also went 81 for 162 on the faceoff dot or 50%.
With his 16 goals, 18 assists and 34 points through 27 games, Suzuki is set to surpass his 20-18-38 totals from last season.
With his November performance, Suzuki is tied for the Attack scoring lead. His five powerplay goals are second on the team, as is his five powerplay assists. Four of the Attack’s shorthanded markers come from Suzuki’s stick.
