In just his second game of his young Ontario Hockey League career, Liam Kirk registered his first goal in a big win for the Peterborough Petes, making it two points in two games for the former Sheffield Steelers forward.
After starting the game on the Petes second line in their 4 – 0 win over the Kingston Frontenacs, where Kirk made his OHL debut and capped it off with an assist, Kirk was on the teams third line alongside Cameron Butler and Brady Hinz to start Sunday’s game.
