Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Gatineau Olympiques 1 @ Quebec Remparts 2

W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: 0-2-2, +2, 2 PIM (interference), 4 SOG, 0 Hits, *Third Star*
Season totals: 2 GP, 1-2-3, +1, 2 PIM

Kucherov (pictured, LaPresse photo) was back in the Remparts lineup and earned the primary assist on both Quebec’s goals. The Remparts came back from a 1-0 deficit to defeat the Olympiques, 2-1. Coach Patrick Roy seems to be rotating his three import players (teams can only play two). Today, Sabres first rounder Mikhail Grigorenko sat in the press box while Kucherov and Nick Sorensen (2013) played. Roy will eventually have to trade one, unless the lockout ends and Grigorenko bolts to the NHL. Grigorenko has 24 points in 15 games this season. Sorensen has 14 in 15.

C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 0-1-1, +1, 9 PIM (boarding, instigating, fighting)
Season totals: 13 GP, 2-17-19, +6, 36 PIM

Richard extended his point streak to 11 games with a third period assist. The game was chippy, to say the least, and Richard was in the middle of it again. He was suspended earlier this year for instigating a fight in the last five minutes of a game. Today he started a fight in the second period. Richard continues to lead the OHL in assists (tied with Nick Cousins of the Soo) and he’s seventh in penalty minutes, 10 behind Oshawa’s Scott Sabourin. You don’t see the assist-PIM combination too often.

Season totals: 14 GP, 2-9-11, -6, 12 PIM
