You will not find a better offensive output then the one Ottawa 67’s Marco Rossi put up in the month of November. The 5’9”, 187-pound centerman put up an astounding 10 goals and 16 assists in just 12 games for the 67’s.

Rossi had a night to remember on November 17, 2019 as he netted 3 goals along with 3 helpers against the Kingston Frontenacs. Here’s the impressive thing about Rossi’s numbers: even if you could magically take away that 6-point game versus the Fronts, he still would have out produced his fellow draft eligible players.

Rossi was held off the score sheet just once. That came on November 11 against the Oshawa Generals. Rossi had 2 multi-goal games in the month, 4 multi-assist games and 7 multi-point games. Despite Rossi’s performances, he was not named the game’s first star at any time in November. However, he was named second star on four occasions and third star in two others.

Also considered was Oshawa Generals netminder Zachary Paputsakis, the only netminder to keep Rossi off the scoresheet in the month of November.

Paputsakis posted a 4-4-0-1 record with a sparkling .918 save percentage and a 2.47 goals-against-average.
