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.
