Gettinger wearing an “A” on his uniform this season saw the Generals jump out to a 2-0 first-period lead before Gettinger responder with the first goal of the season for the Greyhounds. It was a power-play goal off a shot from the right faceoff circle coming at 13:54 of the first period. Power play goals will be a big area for Gettinger to improve upon this season as despite having 31 goals last season, Gettinger only scored three on the power play.
The goal on this clip from “sendtonews.com” starts at the 35-second mark, Getting who also had a secondary assist on the Greyhounds second goal was not shown.
There will be a lot of pressure on Gettinger to become one of the top scorers in the OHL this season after his career-best 31-23-54 and honestly, I think Gettinger if he stays healthy should top those numbers AND also earn a spot on Team USA’s 2018 Under-20 team as well. For the game, Gettinger finishes 1-1-2 with a -2 on eight shots and was 1-1 on faceoffs.
In Vancouver, Ty Ronning, and his Vancouver Giants dropped a 6-1 decision to the Victoria Royals spoiling the home opener for the Giants who also fell for the second straight night to the Royals. Ronning was scoreless on four shots, a -1, 1-1 0n faceoffs and was called for a slashing minor. Not a very good way to start the season for Ronning and his Giants who have only made the playoffs just once in the five seasons Ronning has played for them.
