JUST ONE OF THE GUYS
WINDSOR — Anthony Cirelli had no trouble taking a back seat. Upon being acquired by the Erie Otters from the Oshawa Generals in January, Cirelli, who was the Generals’ captain, happily became another guy in the Otters dressing room.
“They brought me in to help them win and be a role player, and they had Stromer (Dylan Strome) and he’s an unbelievable captain,” Cirelli said. “It’s his team and I’m in the background. We’re a tight group and everyone says (things) to further the team.”
In the coming days, Cirelli will spread as much Memorial Cup knowledge as he can. Two years ago in Quebec City, Cirelli scored both Generals goals in the championship game, including the overtime winner, as Oshawa beat the Kelowna Rockets to win the Cup.
