W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 0 Hits, *Third Star*
Season totals: 7 GP, 4-8-12, +1, 2 PIM

With Quebec: 6 GP, 3-7-10, -1, 2 PIM

Nikita Kucherov (pictured – RN Huskies photo) made his debut for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies after being traded on Wednesday by Quebec. Kucherov had a goal and an assist to extend his point streak to seven games. He played on the Huskies’ second line with Maxime St-Cyr (undrafted) and Mathieu Lemay (2013). St-Cyr has 14 goals (14-6-20) in 23 games this year; Lemay has six (6-10-16). After averaging two shots per game for Quebec, Kucherov tied for the team lead with six shots on goal on Friday night. Alexandre Belanger (2013) had a 25-save shutout for Rouyn-Noranda.

Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 3 @ Gatineau Olympiques 0

C Cedric Paquette, BLB: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
Season totals: 24 GP, 10-17-27, +8, 50 PIM

Cedric Paquette has been making news lately for the right reasons. Earlier this year he was suspended by the team for one game for taking an ill-advised retaliation penalty late in a game that cost the Armada a win. He was stripped of his alternate captain’s A and told to control his emotions. He has responded nicely, reportedly, and told the local papers that he is still a leader on the club without a letter. On Friday, he had an assist in Etienne Marcoux’s 16-save shutout of the Olympiques.

Kristoff Kontos, son of Lightning record-holder Chris Kontos, had a goal and an assist and was named first star as the Steelheads topped the Battalion, 5-2. Brampton was coming off a big road win over Barrie on Thursday night. Chris Kontos holds the record for most goals in a game by a Lightning player with four, set in the franchise’s inaugural game against Chicago, won 7-4 by the Bolts. Kristoff Kontos went undrafted this past summer. He has five goals and 15 points in 25 games this year for Mississauga.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Quebec Remparts 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 2 (OT)

W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: Did not play
Season totals: 6 GP, 3-7-10, -1, 2 PIM

Nikita Kucherov sat for the second straight game, then after the game reports began to surface that Kucherov was on the QMJHL trading block. One reporter said Kucherov had been playing “lazy.” Quebec has three import players and one has to move, though it was assumed Kucherov and his good friend Mikhail Grigorenko would be the ones staying. Nick Sorensen is the other import player. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Kucherov was a surprise Import Draft selection because few expected him to be interested in coming to North America. Quebec’s Patrick Roy knew something others didn’t, and having Grigorenko on the Remparts was no doubt a big help in getting that talented Kucherov to North America. Kucherov could choose to return to Russia if he’s not happy with his next playing situation. Stay tuned.

Owen Sound Attack 2 @ London Knights 5

D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

Former Lightning camper Seth Griffith (Bruins) had a goal and two assists for London and was given First Star honors.

They also took over the OHL lead in points by one over Barrie and Owen Sound.

C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 0-3-3, +2, 2 PIM
Season totals: 20 GP, 2-25-27, +6, 44 PIM

Season totals: 22 GP, 3-15-18, -14, 18 PIM

Koekkoek earned the game’s Third Star for a 1+1 night as the Petes halted their 7-game losing streak with a win over Ottawa. Koekkoek has tied last year’s point total of 18, but in four fewer games. As has been well documented, Koekkoek’s season ended last year after a shoulder injury at the end of November. With the win, the Petes pulled within one point of the 67’s for second-last place in the league.
