JOE VRBETIC (NORTH BAY BATTALION) – 1ST OHL SHUTOUT
North Bay Battalion rookie Joe Vrbetic made 41 saves to record his first career OHL shutout as the Troops defeated the Barrie Colts 4-0 on the road. Vrbetic’s fine performance helped North Bay snap an eight-game losing skid as the 17-year-old from Dunvegan, Ont. earned his 10th win of the season. The 6-foot-6, 180Ib. puckstopper was North Bay’s second round pick in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection from the Don Mills Flyers Minor Midgets. He spent last season with the NOJHL’s Powassan VooDoos, posting a 2.80 goals-against average and .928 save percentage over 30 games.
