Zlobin is projected to be a mid-round pick in the 2012 draft after being passed over last year. He has 39 goals and 74 points in 64 games. He is also plus-43.

C Danick Gauthier, SNB: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 3 Hits
Season Totals: 62 GP, 44-35-79, +41, 61 PIM

Twice Gauthier tied the game for Saint John, but at the end of the shootout with the game on the line Gauthier couldn’t come through one final time. Kings second rounder Christopher Gibson stopped two of three shooters in the skills competition for the victory. With his two goals Friday, Gauthier moved into second place on his own in the Q goal scoring race. He’s still six behind Acadie-Bathurst’s Zach O’Brien (undrafted).

Gatineau Olympiques 5 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 6 (OT)

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-0-1, +2, 2 PIM (holding), 0 hits
Season Totals: 49 GP, 6-25-31, -11, 49 PIM

Janosik was back in the lineup after missing last weekend with an illness and scored his sixth of the year for Gatineau to open the game’s scoring. He took a holding penalty in overtime, however, and the Foreurs capitalized on it with the game winning goal.

Season Totals: 59 GP, 22-48-70, +19, 50 PIM

Namestnikov broke a three-game scoreless streak with a goal and an assist Friday as London completed a two-game home-and-home sweep of Guelph. With two points he reached 70 for the season, which establishes a new career high for the Lightning first round draft pick. He also set a career high for penalty minutes in a season with two more added to his totals.

Guelph Storm 1 @ London Knights 4

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 58 GP, 21-47-68, +19, 48 PIM

With a win over Guelph on Thursday the London Knights clinched the Midwest Division title. Namestnikov was scoreless for the third game in a row and seventh time in his last nine games. Of course, he has a five point game squeezed in that time span. Of concern is Namesntikov has registered a minus rating in five of those nine games, as opposed to only two games in which he’s finished on the plus side of even.
