Saw Barrie humiliate the Battalion 6-0 at home yesterday afternoon. But it was still pretty entertaining despite the blowout. Admittedly, the tickets were purchased because of the opportunity to see Aaron Ekblad first hand, so it was a little disappointing to find out he was a scratch that afternoon.
Barrie is a very underrated squad this year. Their breakout this afternoon was a whole level above what North Bay brought to the table.
From North Bay, Blake Clarke played his first home game of the year. He's got good size and decent speed, but he's still behind the play a lot and wasn't a factor at all offensively.
Vinny Praplan is a skilled European who's been pretty consistent from the games I've seen. His two-way game stands out, but besides a couple of creative offensive plays, he was a non-factor today.
From Barrie, Claude Lemieux's son Brendan was the standout. He's a bit of a *****, like his dad. Good size, good speed and a highly physical game. He scored two and fought Goodrow in the later stages of the game. A decent late rounder possibly.
