North American Juniors Game Night: 12/5/10

QMJHL

Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Acadie-Bathurst Titan 8
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -4, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 31 GP, 4-10-14, +4, 18 PIM

Janosik’s plus-8 rating for the season was cut in half in one bad night vs. the Titan. Gatineau is third in the TELUS West Division with 42 points, eight behind Charles Landry and Montreal for first.

Montreal Juniors 5 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 3
D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 21 GP, 5-15-20, +11, 6 PIM

Landry has eight points in his last three games and has registered at least a point in seven of his last eight games. With his two points Sunday, he is quickly approaching point-per-game status. Although his strong play didn’t show on the scoresheet for the Lightning in Traverse City, Steve Yzerman and company saw enough in the undrafted defenseman to sign him to an entry level contract. He had a slow start to the season, but has come on very strong since missing a few games due to an injury. The Lightning may have a legitimate prospect here.

OHL

Owen Sound Attack 7 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4

D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (roughing)

Season totals: 12 GP, 6-6-12, +7, 10 PIM

Fargo is now in full force after the WJACs, putting up 8 goals on 25 shots in Waterloo Saturday night. Mullin’s goal, his sixth of the year, was scored shorthanded into an empty net in the 13th minute of the third period – a period in which Waterloo didn’t have a goalie for most of it. Fargo was up 5-1 in the 11th minute when Waterloo went on the power play. They pulled their goalie and scored, making it 5-2, then did it again for a 5 on 3 immediately after and scored again, making it 5-3. Mullin scored into the empty net in the 13th minute, then Fargo scored 2 more empty netters, in the 15th and 18th minute while Waterloo had extra attackers. The game also featured a line brawl where all 10 players were ejected with 5 minutes to go. Old time hockey! (except without 2 goalies)

QMJHL

Season totals: 23 GP, 13-8-21, -9, 36 PIM

Ashton now has goals in 6 of his last 7 games. No 3 stars were listed in the game report. Ashton did not convert his shootout attempt for Regina, who are on a little 1-0-1 streak and have tied Prince Albert for second last in their division.

Kelowna Rockets 2 @ Prince George Cougars 1 (OT)
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 23 GP, 18-10-28, -5, 6 PIM

That’s two home games in a row the Cougars have dropped to last-place Kelowna. Actually, with the win Kelowna jumped into a tie with PG in points and one ahead of Kamloops. Connolly is starting to heat up again; he has 3 goals in his last 2 games, and 4 in 3 if you count the Canada-Russia Super Series. Len Barrie’s son, Tyson, had 2 assists for the Rockets.

Saskatoon Blades 5 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 3
D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, *First Star*
Season totals: 22 GP, 2-5-7, +6, 43 PIM

Beukeboom, the Soo’s captain, fell to minus-10 on the year, the worst mark on the club. He’s 19th on the club in points. The SSM press has been calling for the firing of Soo coach Denny Lambert, so this was a welcomed win.

Season totals: 22 GP, 17-10-27, -6, 6 PIM

Connolly scored both his team’s goals, but the Cougars dropped a home game to last-place Kelowna. The Rockets are now just one point behind PG in the B.C. Division. This was Connolly’s first 2-goal game in nearly a month. He is 18th in the WHL in points.

Season totals: 21 GP, 15-10-25, -7, 6 PIM

North American Juniors Game Night: 11/12/10

OHL

Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 3 @ Kingston Frontenacs 5

G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 14 GP, 7-3-1-1, 3.48 GAA, .880 sv%, 1 SO

In the “bad news” department: Zador appears to have definitely lost his starter’s job and Panik hasn’t scored in 8 games (and 1 in his last 10). Kevin Bailie, who started the year as Zador’s backup, earned Second Star in the loss for the Gens.

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

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.

After a slow start, Ashton has 12 points in his last 10 games, including goals in his last two.

Season Totals: 7 GP, 0-4-4, +5, 0 PIM

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

Season Totals: 15 GP, 0-1-1, -5, 36 PIM

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?).

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 17 GP, 1-10-11, +9, 2 PIM
