Rossi extended his personal point-streak to eight games with a trio of multi-point performances last week that helped the Ottawa 67’s stay perfect in post-season play taking a 3-0 series lead against the Oshawa Generals for the Eastern Conference Championship.  Rossi found the back of the net in all three games beginning Thursday night in the third round series opener where he tallied twice and added two assists as first star of the 6-4 victory.  He scored the game-winner and added an assist in Saturday’s 7-3 triumph in Game 2, then produced the same stat line Sunday in Game 3 netting the insurance marker plus a helper in the 5-1 road win.  The series continues Wednesday in Oshawa where they 67’s have the opportunity to capture their first Bobby Orr Trophy since 2005.

A 17-year-old from Feldkirch, Austria, Rossi leads all first year players in playoff scoring with 15 points in 11 games including five goals and 10 assists.  The 18th overall pick in the 2018 CHL Import Draft was voted to the OHL’s Second All-Rookie Team at centre following a 2018-19 campaign where he delivered 29 goals and 36 assists for 65 points in 53 games.  Born September 23, 2001, Rossi will be eligible for the 2020 NHL Draft.

Also considered for the award this week was fellow rookie Cole Perfetti of the Saginaw Spirit who scored three goals and two assists for five points in two wins to open the Western Conference Championship Series against the Guelph Storm.  Storm captain and Philadelphia Flyers prospect Isaac Ratcliffe scored four goals and two assists for six points in three games which included a Game 7 victory against the London Knights.  In goal, Vancouver Canucks prospect Michael DiPietro of the 67’s posted a 3-0 record making 69 saves for a goals-against-average of 2.67 and save percentage of .896.
