Kerby Rychel scored once and added four assists Thursday as the Windsor Spitfires defeated the Erie Otters 8-5 in the Ontario Hockey League.

Alex Aleardi and Ben Johnson added two goals each for the Spitfires (23-28-7), while Alexander Khokhlachev, Remy Giftopoulos and Graeme Brown also scored.

J.P. Labardo, with two, Nick Betz, Dane Fox and Stephen Harper replied for the Otters (17-34-8).

Khokhlachev also had three assists for a four-point night, while Trevor Murphy and Josh Ho-Sang both chipped in with a pair of assists apiece for Windsor.

Elsewhere in the OHL it was: Mississauga 8, Niagara 2; Sault Ste. Marie 6, Sarnia 3; Peterborough 6, Oshawa 3; and Owen Sound 3, Barrie 2 (OT).
