Saginaw upends OHL champion Knights, 10-7

Saginaw veteran Patrick Asselin

The Saginaw Spirit beat the London Knights for the first time in 12 tries Friday night and in the process spoiled the Knights' OHL and Memorial Cup banner raising ceremony at the John Labatt Centre.

Patrick Asselin's hat trick powered the Spirit to a 10-7 win.

"This is just one game," cautioned Spirit coach-GM Bob Mancini. "Yes, I'm very pleased by the victory. It was a hard-fought, team effort and we battled well. But we still have to adjust to the new OHL standards of play by committing ourselves to learning disciplined play."
