No. 1 star: Josh Currie, P.E.I. Rocket (QMJHL)
After potting two apples throughout the first two periods against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, overage forward Josh Currie decided he didn’t want to wait any longer to hit the 100-point single-season plateau. The Charlottetown, P.E.I., native scored a hat trick in the final frame to hit a triple-digit season and lead his squad to a 6-0 victory. The icing on the cake for Currie’s big night is that he scored his three goals in three different situations: the first on even strength, the second down a man, and the third on the power play.
Currie now sits tied with teammate Ben Duffy (2A, +1) as the leading goal scorer in the QMJHL. It is safe to say the 5-foot-11, 198-pound centre ate his vegetables and didn’t neglect the weights in the offseason as he has more than doubled his point total from last season of 46.
