It looks like Roy Radke has taken notes on how Patrick Kane performs during shootouts.
Radke, the Chicago Blackhawks 2015 sixth-round pick, bookended the scoring, opening up the night with his fourth of the season before ending things with a shootout marker in a 5-4 win for the Barrie Colts over visiting Mississauga Steelheads on Thursday in Ontario Hockey League action.
Note: Barrie tagged Luke Chiodo in the tweet, but it was in fact Radke with the goal.
Radke, a Geneva, Ill. native, has five goals and two assists in nine games this season. The 19-year-old winger had a great start last season with two hat tricks and 10 goals in his first 14 games, but he only scored nine goals the rest of the season. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder was held pointless in 15 playoff games.
Radke, a Chicago Mission product, is expected to have an increased role with Barrie next season after the team lost six of its top 10 scorers to the NHL, and Julius Nättinen to OHL Windsor. Only forwards Cordell James, Anthony Stefano and Radke return from the top 10. He was the team's eighth leading scorer with 19 goals and 39 points.
He was ranked No. 25 in SCH’s Top 25 Under 25 series.
