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.

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.

Acolatse has 13 points in 8 games this season with Prince George since coming over from Saskatoon.

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.

WHL

Kootenay Ice 2 @ Regina Pats 0
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 7 GP, 2-1-3, -3, 21 PIM

Regina is a league-worst 1-6-1-0 so far this year, and for a team with Jordan Weal and Ashton, that shouldn’t be happening. They managed only 14 shots on goal – at home – on Tuesday. Then again, this was a team that had Jordan Eberle last year and greatly faltered. After scoring 30 two years ago, Ashton fell to 24 goals last year, and with only 2 after 7 games, he can’t be happy with his (or the team’s) production so far, especially considering he had such a good Lightning camp and exhibition season.

North American Juniors Game Night: 10/8/10

O'Donnell has a big night ... Connolly, Ashton score ... Schemitsch a PPGer ... Zador struggles.

Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 16 PIM

Beukeboom is still looking for his first point of the season. The Soo captain has two fights, however. Beukeboom jumped Hooey after Hooey laid an open ice check on a Soo player.

C Richard Panik, BEL: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM
