Mancina Named Ontario Hockey League Player of the Week
The third-year goaltender backstopped the Peterborough Petes to wins over Saginaw Spirit and London Knights last week.
The 19-year-old Matthew Mancina, who is a Sun County Panthers minor hockey product, and a former Leamington Jr. B Flyers player, had a season-high 48 saves in a 3-1 win over Saginaw and made 30 saves in a 4-2 win over the Knights, who lost for just the second time this season in regulation at home.
For the season, Mancina boasts a 14-10-1-3 record with one shutout. He is sixth in the league with a 2.67 goals-against average and fifth in save percentage at .920.
The 6′ 3″, 197 pound Tecumseh native began his OHL career in the 2013-14 season as a member of the Guelph Storm. He was dealt early in the following season to the Petes.
