World Junior A Challenge

Sweden 1 vs. USA 5
C Jimmy Mullin, USA: 1-0-1, 0 PIM
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 4-0-4, 0 PIM

Mullin scored his tournament-leading fourth goal early in the first period, and the Americans scored three more in the second before Sweden found the scoresheet as USA easily disposed of the Swedes 5-1 in Penticton, B.C. USA is looking for its third-straight gold medal. They stand alone at the top of the standings with six points after two games and along with Switzerland will get a bye to the semifinals.

Canada West 4 vs. Russia 2
C Brendan O’Donnell, CW: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, 0 PIM

Canada West had a 2-0 lead midway through the game, but that quickly vanished by the end of the second period. Tied at 2 entering the third, Canada scored twice in the final frame to take the win. They will play Sweden on Thursday in the quarterfinals.

Season totals: 19 GP, 11-11-22, +1, 25 PIM

Belleville only managed 16 shots against Zador’s (former?) backup Kevin Bailie, who was getting his second straight start. The Bulls have been searching for offense as a whole all season.

WHL

Portland Winterhawks 5 @ Regina Pats 4 (OT)
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 18 GP, 8-7-15, -8, 34 PIM

This was a good showing for the Pats against the league’s top team. Portland needed a late goal to force overtime. Blue Jackets first round pick Ryan Johansen had a goal for Portland, his eighth of the year, and Islanders first rounder Nino Niederreiter went without a point against Regina. After a slow start, Ashton has 12 points in his last 10 games, including goals in his last two.

Montreal scored twice in the late third to send the game to an extra session, then defeated the CHL’s top ranked team in a shootout. Patrick Roy and Quebec are 15-2-0-2 on the year. They're 0-1-0-1 this week - the same week Roy blamed Lightning coach Guy Boucher for the lack of offense in the QMJHL. #GuyBoucherKarma

OHL

Oshawa Generals 3 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 7
G Michael Zador, OSH: No decision, 6 saves on 9 shots

D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-1-1, +3, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 15 GP, 0-1-1, -5, 36 PIM

Beukeboom (pictured) finally earned his first point of the year, although it was part of a poor performance by his fellow Lightning prospect Michael Zador. Zador was pulled in the first period.

Belleville Bulls 0 @ Kitchener Rangers 8
C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 0-0-0, -5, 0 PIM
Season totals: 17 GP, 11-10-21, E, 21 PIM

A snowman in Kitchener. Panik was a team-worst minus-5. The next worst was minus-3. Possible 2011 Lightning draft target right-handed defenseman Ryan Murphy just had an assist in the game. He has 10 goals and 28 points in 16 games so far this year for the Rangers and is now playing himself into the top of the first round it seems (and too high for the Lightning?).

Owen Sound Attack 0 @ Erie Otters 4
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 17 GP, 1-10-11, +9, 2 PIM

USHL

Fargo Force 1 @ Sioux Falls Stampede 2
C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (slashing), 4 SOG

Sudbury Wolves 1 @ Belleville Bulls 6
C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM

Kingston Frontenacs 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 4 (SO)
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-3-3, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season totals: 15 GP, 1-9-10, +8, 2 PIM

WHL

Spokane Chiefs 11 @ Regina Pats 1
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 7 PIM (fighting, holding)
Season totals: 14 GP, 6-5-11, -5, 32 PIM

Regina had won 3 straight before the Halloween Eve Massacre.

Prince George Cougars 4 @ Tri-City Americans 3 (SO)
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 16 GP, 14-8-22, E, 6 PIM

Connolly was scoreless for the second straight game. He failed to convert his shootout attempt. It’s a good sign for the Cougars team that they can win when Connolly is not producing statistically night in and night out like he has been.

Saskatoon Blades 1 @ Red Deer Rebels 7
D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (cross-checking)
Season totals: 14 GP, 1-0-1, +5, 19 PIM

Yikes.

Season totals: 19 GP, 8-8-16, Even, 8 PIM

WHL

Saskatoon Blades 2 @ Regina Pats 5
D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (tripping)

Season totals: 13 GP, 6-5-11, -4, 25 PIM

Regina won their third in a row with an upset win over first-place Saskatoon. Ashton, who scored on the power play, now has 5 points in his last 2 games and 6 in his last 3. He was given credit for a goal in his last game after the play was reviewed late. Perhaps his season is indeed starting to take off.

North American Juniors Game Night: 10/24/10

Season Totals: 6-2-0-1, 3.52 GAA, .883 sv%

C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
Season totals: 17 GP, 6-4-10, Even, 8 PIM

A devastating home loss to Vernon, though Penticton still leads the Interior Conference with a 12-5-0-0 record.

QMJHL

Lewiston MAINEiacs 3 @ Gatineau Olympiques 4
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Season Totals: 13 GP, 1-3-4, E, 6 PIM

It was a rough plus/minus night for Janosik despite the win. He was credited with one hit in the game.

OHL

Erie Otters 3 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 7
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, +1, 2 PIM (hooking)
Season Totals: 10 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 36 PIM

Belleville Bulls 2 @ Plymouth Whalers 5
C/W Richard Panik, BEL: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 12 GP, 11-7-18, +3, 15 PIM

Owen Sound Attack 5 @ Sarnia Sting 7
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 11 GP, 1-5-6, +7, 2 PIM

Another quiet night on the scoresheet for Schemitsch.

Oshawa Generals 4 @ London Knights 3 (OT)
G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, 33 saves on 36 shots
Season Totals: 6-2-0-0, 3.61 GAA, .886 sv%

A nice win for the Gens and Zador, who’s save percentage is creeping back toward .900.

Season totals: 11 GP, 4-2-6, -6, 23 PIM

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 4 @ Regina Pats 3 (SO)
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (slashing)
Season totals: 10 GP, 3-2-5, -7, 21 PIM

Ashton was the third and final shooter for the Pats in the shootout, but he hit the post and couldn’t extend the tie-breaker. Ashton is tied for sixth on the club in scoring, behind two defensemen. His minus-7 rating is tied for third worst on the team. The Regina newspaper reported this week it’s not a matter of “if,” but “when” and “where” Ashton gets traded within the WHL, but Regina needs for him to play to his 1st round capabilities so they can maximize the return for their rebuilding effort. Regina is tied for the fewest points in the league with Kelowna at 2-7-1-1.

RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season totals: 11 GP, 11-7-18, +3, 4 PIM

Reigning WHL and CHL Player of the Week Sena Acolatse, a right-handed, undrafted, overage defenseman, had 2 assists in the game. Acolatse has 13 points in 8 games this season with Prince George since coming over from Saskatoon.

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.
