Ivan Lodnia Named OHL’s 2nd Star – April 15, 2019

Ontario Hockey League


Arguably the star of the series, Kyle Keyser shone brightly once again on Monday, making 34 saves as the Oshawa Generals defeated the Niagara IceDogs 3-2 to advance to the Eastern Conference Final. Keyser was the difference in a series where his Generals were considerably outshot. The Boston Bruins prospect holds an 8-3 record along with a 2.09 goals-against average and .943 save percentage over 11 playoff contests as the Generals are off to the East Final for the first time since their 2015 title run. The 20-year-old played to a 32-8-3-0 record this past season with a 2.75 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. He was a free agent signing by Boston in October 2017.

Minnesota Wild prospect Ivan Lodnia scored twice in Monday’s 3-2 road loss in Oshawa as the Niagara IceDogs saw their season come to an end. The 19-year-old native of Novi, Mich. led the IceDogs in playoff scoring with 14 points (4-10–14) over 11 contests, putting up a trio of three-point performances along the way. A former OHL champion with the Erie Otters in 2017, Lodnia recorded 45 points (17-28–45) over 41 games this past season. Over his four year OHL career, Lodnia registered 200 regular season points (79-121–200) over 231 games. He was Minnesota’s third round pick in 2017.

Nineteen-year-old Swiss winger Nando Eggenberger scored the game winning goal, pushing the Oshawa Generals into the Eastern Conference Final with a 3-2 Game 6 win over the Niagara IceDogs. Eggenberger entered the zone, taking a pass from Kyle MacLean to wrist a shot past Niagara’s Stephen Dhillon with 1:05 remaining in the second period. Eggenberger has eight points (5-3–8) over 11 playoff outings. He captained Switzerland at the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship this past January.
