By @MichaelCaples –

London Knights goaltender Tyler Parsons had a busy weekend.

The Chesterfield native played three OHL games in three days from Friday to Sunday, and he finished with a 3-0-0-0 record and two shutouts.

Parsons started the weekend with a 6-3 victory on Friday, stopping 27 shots against the Windsor Spitfires. He was just heating up, however, because the next night, he recorded his first career OHL regular-season shutout with a 22-save outing in a 7-0 win over the Saginaw Spirit. From there, he posted a second straight shutout, blanking the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds with 32 saves in a 6-0 win.

He finished the weekend with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .964 save percentage, and he leads the OHL with 10 wins on the season.

The 18-year-old netminder – rated a ‘B’ prospect by NHL Central Scouting in their September ‘Players to Watch’ list – holds a 10-1-1-1 record with a 2.53 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

He is the second Michigan native to receive the OHL weekly honor, after Alex DeBrincat was named the ‘Pioneer Energy OHL Player of the Week’ for his performances between Sept. 28 and Oct. 4.
