QMJHL

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season Totals: 11 GP, 1-3-4, +1, 2 PIM

Gatineau outshot the Sagueneens 34-15, including 4-0 in overtime, but needed that extra session to win. Janosik was credited with two hits in the game. He had 35 points last year, but is off to a bit of a slow start statistically.

OHL

Saginaw Spirit 2 @ Belleville Bulls 3 (OT)
C Richard Panik, BEL: 3-0-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
Season totals: 10 GP, 10-7-17, +4, 13 PIM

Panik provided all the offense for the Bulls, scoring in the first, third, and again with one second left in overtime to give Belleville the win. Panik, who has three First Star awards, is tied for second in the league in goals and fourth in points.

Barrie Colts 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 7
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +3, 0 PIM
Season totals: 9 GP, 1-5-6, +6, 2 PIM

Owen Sound boasts the league’s top goal scorer, Garrett Wilson (Panthers 4th/09), who had two goals Saturday to give him 12 for the year – two ahead of Lightning prospect Richard Panik.

Oshawa Generals 5 @ Niagara IceDogs 6
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 5-1-0-0, 3.52 GAA, .891 sv%

Zador got the night off as his backup, Kevin Bailie, stopped 22 of 28 shots in the loss.

WHL

Regina Pats 4 @ Kootenay Ice 7
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-1-2, -2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 9 GP, 3-2-5, -6, 21 PIM

Ashton scored for the first time in three games for the Pats, who remain the league’s worst team at 2-7-1.

Prince George Cougars 8 @ Kamloops Blazers 1
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Third Star*

D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 8 GP, 1-0-1, +7, 11 PIM

Saskatoon is now 8-1 and one point behind league-leader Portland.

North American Juniors Game Night: 10/15/10

Many junior prospects in action Friday night. Connolly scores his 7th, Zador picks up another win while Panik, Schemitsch and Mullin add helpers.

North American Juniors Game Night: 10/11/10

OHL

Ottawa 67’s 4 @ Oshawa Generals 3
G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 22 saves on 26
Season Totals: 4-1-0-0, 3.61 GAA, .894 sv%

Zador got a confidence boost when Coach/GM Chris DePiero put him right back in net after Zador was pulled in his previous game. Zador wasn’t great, however, and suffered his first (technically) loss of the year against the 67’s despite the Gens outshooting Ottawa 36-26. This is a crucial time for Zador, who struggled mightily with consistency last season. If he can right this quickly, it could go a long way to him getting a contract this spring. If he continues to ride the roller coaster, the uphill climb to a contract gets steeper.

WHL

Prince George Cougars 7 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 8
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 8 GP, 6-5-11, -1, 2 PIM

Connolly, who has at least a point in all 8 games this year, scored the game’s first 2 goals, but the Cougars would later blow a 6-3 third period lead in 6 minutes and eventually have to tie the game to send it to overtime. The Oil Kings won it in the extra session.

North American Juniors Game Night: 10/9/10

USHL

Fargo Force 2 @ Cedar Rapids Roughriders 5
C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-1-2, +1, 2 PIM (roughing), 4 SOG
Season Totals: 3 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 2 PIM

Mullin (pictured) had his first multipoint USHL game, though it came in a losing effort. The Miami-Ohio commit leads Fargo in goals and is tied for the points lead after three games.

QMJHL

Montreal Juniors 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 3 (SO)
D Charles Landry, MTL: Did not play.
Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, +4, 0 PIM

Landry has missed Montreal’s last three games.

Belleville Bulls 4 @ Sarnia Sting 3
C Richard Panik, BEL: 1-2-3, +2, 0 PIM, *First Star*
Season Totals: 7 GP, 5-5-10, +2, 11 PIM

Panik earned his second First Star of the season after a three point night. This is exactly what the Lightning want to see from Panik at the junior level – lighting up the scoreboard. Panik has all the skills to be an elite forward at this level.

Brampton Battalion 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 4
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, +3, 0 PIM

Owen Sound was outshot 13-4 in the third period, but one of those shots - Cameron Brace's first OHL goal - went in for the game winner.

Season Totals: 7 GP, 4-5-9, -2, 2 PIM
