Katchouk, Boris

AHL Game Night: 1-25-19 Thunderbirds at Crunch

Rutta shines in Crunch debut.

SPR-1
SYR-6

Eddie Pasquale allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory. I think a brief rest did him a ton of good.

First Period
4:18 SYR Katchouk (7), (Dumont, Raddysh)
11:38 SYR Rutta (2), (unassisted)
16:50 SPR Greco (18), (MacDonald, Hunt)(PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
4:17 SYR Raddysh (12), (Katchouk, Dumont)
10:30 SYR Volkov (11), (Conacher, Brassart)
11:31 SYR Barre-Boulet (21), (Conacher, Rutta)(PP)
16:10 SYR Brassart (2), (Volkov, Pasquale)(SH)

Boris Katchouk, Pasquale, and Jan Rutta were the game's three stars. Rutta, who came over from Chicago in the Koekkoek trade, immediately got to work with 1-1-2 in his first go with the Crunch. Also of note: Connor Ingram dressed for the night's tilt. He hasn't seen game action since 12/21, so Syracuse is inching closer to having a full complement of weapons on hand to attack the second half of the campaign.

The club now sits 4 points back of Rochester for the top spot in the division with 2 games in hand.

8:17 SYR Katchouk (5), (Raddysh, Foote)(SH)
16:02 SYR Foote (6), (Colton, Bourke)
18:32 SYR Yan (8), (Bourke, Volkov)

Taylor Raddysh, Cal Foote, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars, which had to be music to the organization's ears. These were three of the most highly touted rookies joining the pro ranks this year and now all three are really rounding the corner and producing regularly, whereas before it was seemingly just Raddysh finding the scoresheet regularly.

Considering Utica's only goal was assisted by two ex-Bolt Prospects, Cam Darcy and Dylan Blujus, it darned near was 11-0 Syracuse.

AHL Game Night: 11-21-18 Crunch at Devils

Surging Crunch move into a tie for second in the North Division.

SYR-4
BNG-1

Connor Ingram allowed just 1 goal on 30 shots for the victory, including some highlight reel variety stops in the mix.

First Period
3:33 BNG Pietila (5), (Gignac)(SH)

Second Period
9:41 SYR Verhaeghe (6), (Conacher, Barre-Boulet)(PP)
10:38 SYR Katchouk (2), (Dumont)
17:23 SYR Andreoff (8), (Conacher, Verhaeghe)(PP)

Third Period
19:06 SYR Conacher (8), (unassisted)(EN)

Carter Verhaeghe and Boris Katchouk were the game's first and third stars.

The Crunch are now unbeaten in their last eight games including seven wins in that span. Those 15 points have moved Syracuse from the out house in the North Division to just five points back of leading Rochester with two games in hand on the Americans.

What I'm saying is, Ben Groulx is some kind of powerful warlock.

Alexander Volkov, Ben Thomas, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars. Volkov, who was among the last cuts from the Lightning's camp, had been notably absent from the goalscoring ledger throughout the early parts of this AHL campaign. Good to see him open his 2018-2019 account tonight and good to see fellow prized prospect Boris Katchouk go get a couple of helpers to boot.

Hopefully this starts the climb back up the mountain for the Crunch. They've got at least two games in hand on the rest of the North Division, so if they can string some W's together, they can quickly climb to the middle of the divisional pack with teams like the Sens.
