The puck stops with Peressini
December 18, 2014
Minus five of their top scorers either due to injury or the World Junior Hockey tryouts — Spencer Watson, Ryan Kujawinski, Lawson Crouse, Juho Lammikko and Sam Bennett are all missing from action — the Kingston Frontenacs have had difficulty putting the puck in the net as of late.
Kingston is 0-3-1 in its last four outings and has scored only five goals in the process.
But a season-long bright spot for the Frontenacs, who take a record of 13-13-4 into Ontario Hockey League action this weekend, has been the play of 1995 birth-year goalie Lucas Peressini.
In his first season as Kingston’s starter, Peressini is the OHL’s second-ranked goalie statistically thus far this 2014-2015 campaign.
Peressini, who attended the National Hockey League rookie camp of the Detroit Red Wings during the summer, has a 2.18 goals-against-average with a .928 save percentage and 13-8-4 record for the Frontenacs this season.
To put Peressini’s numbers in perspective, in the 5 games he hasn’t played this season, Kingston is 0-5 with a 4.81 GAA and .844 save pct.
