NOJHL sports five scorers in CJHL’s 90-point club

SUDBURY, Ont. – As the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League winds down its regular season a number of their players continue to put up some big numbers offensively.

The NOJHL currently features five of their own in the Canadian Jr. Hockey League’s 90-point club.

So far in the 2011-12 campaign only 13 skaters among the 133 teams that comprise the CJHL have amassed 90 or more points on the season.

Jordan Carroll of the Sudbury Cubs is the highest NOJHL point getter to date entering Wednesday evening’s contest vs. Blind River.

His totals have him second overall in the CJHL trailing only Yannick Geoffrey’s 136 recorded with Longueuil of the Quebec Jr. AAA loop.

Carroll’s 66 tallies are the most scored in all of Canadian Jr. A hockey.

Having recorded the most assists in the nation with 84 is Marc-Alain Begin of the Abitibi Eskimos. He is third in the CJHL in total points with 115 in just 36 games averaging 3.19 points per contest.

Sitting tied for the sixth-best total in the country is Sudbury’s Jamie Haines with 104. His Cubs teammate in Nick Esposto is knotted for ninth with 94 points while Micky Sartoretto of the NOJHL-leading Soo Thunderbirds rounds out the players from the league in this exclusive group. He shares 12th overall with 90 points, including 41 goals.

The following are the CJHL’s 90-point producers as Feb. 22.
