OHL Three Stars for Opening Week

After an off-season that seemed as though it would last forever, the Ontario Hockey League Season has finally begun. We've already had our share of great performances, including Max Domi's Hat Trick debut for the London Knights. Today, we pick the three players whose performances over the past week make them worthy of mention in our OHL Three Stars.

1. Tanner Pearson (Barrie Colts) - Tanner was a key contributor for Barrie this week, helping to lead the Colts to a 2-0 start to the OHL Season. It started on Thursday night, when he would score twice and add three assists in a 7-4 victory over the Kingston Frontenacs. The five point night would quickly loft Tanner to the top of the OHL Scoring Race, but he wouldn't stop there, as the following night, Tanner's Hat Trick would lead the Colts over the Brampton Battalion, 3-1. With 8 points in just two games (5G, 3A) Tanner is this week's OHL First Star.

2. Michael Houser (London Knights) - Michael would post a brilliant 36 save shutout of the Saginaw Spirit in the Knights season opener on Friday night, a fact overshadowed by the OHL debut of one Max Domi. Not to be outdone, Houser would perform even better just two nights later in Guelph, as he would stop 45 0f 46 shots he faced during regulation, as well as all three Storm Shootout Attempts in a 2-1 victory, earning this week's Second Star.

3. Cameron Brace (Owen Sound Attack) - Cameron is one of those players that every successful team needs, a player who brings a little of everything. He did so this week for the Attack, notching an assist on opening night against the Plymouth Whalers. Brace would follow that up with a pair of two point games over the weekend, scoring twice on Friday to help Owen Sound defeat Guelph 6-4, and adding a couple of assists the next night against the Saginaw Spirit. His two goals and three assists would give him five points in the first week of the season, and he would also lead the Attack with a +5 rating to go with eight penalty minutes. Often underrated, Cameron Brace earns this week's OHL Third Star.
