Brochu stars in first shutout

London Knights rookie goalie Brett Brochu of Tilbury made 18 saves for his first OHL shutout Friday in a 3-0 win over the Ottawa 67’s in London.

The 67’s are ranked No. 1 in the Canadian Hockey League, but the Knights outshot them 47-18.

Brochu was named the first star. He has a 3-0 record, 1.67 goals-against average and .934 save percentage.

“We hardly gave up any second shots,” Brochu said to the London Free Press. “Our team played extremely well and that’s all you want. The penalty kill was tremendous and guys like (Cole) Tymkin go out there and battle the whole time.”
