Season totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 4 PIM

Dotchin had two assists in Owen Sound’s opening night win in Windsor, but couldn’t hit the scoresheet in the Attack’s home opener. He’ll take the win, no doubt. Owen Sound’s Daniel Catenacci (Sabres) had a goal and an assist for First Star honors.

A 31-goal scorer last year, Paquette had a goal and an assist in the third period to help the Armada to a 5-3 road win. The Armada was down 2-1 entering the third period.

Sergeev’s first goal of the year came on the power play and gave Val-d’Or a brief 3-1 lead. He did not participate in the shootout, won by the Foreurs 1-0. Look for a breakout year from Sergeev (pictured) this season.

Note: Nikita Kucherov (Quebec) remains out with a shoulder injury.

He had spent the first half of the double man advantage as the triggerman for the Battalion. Blujus did not participate in the shootout. Listening to the radio broadcast, Blujus seemed to never leave the ice.

Richard had an assist on Andrey Pedan’s (Islanders) power play goal in overtime as Guelph came back from a 3-1 deficit to win their season opener. Leafs second rounder and Guelph captain Matt Finn had three assists for the Storm.

Canada Wins Exhibition Series Against Russia, Lightning Prospects

Canada 1 vs Russia 0 (OT)

D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
D Artem Sergeev, RUS: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
G Andrei Vasilevski, RUS: Loss

After Team Canada won 4-2 in regulation in Halifax on Tuesday night to knot the four-game series at two wins apiece, both teams began a special overtime session in hopes of a series-deciding victory. The Canadians, the distinct aggressors throughout much of the three periods played previously that night, kept pressing their Russian counterparts and were rewarded with the clinching goal just a few minutes into sudden-death. On the play, Canada's Ty Rattie managed to keep the puck in Russia's end, which led to Ryan Strome getting the puck on his stick near the top of the left face-off circle, where he didn't waste any time using some crafty stick-work to make his way to a better angle in the high slot where, with a quick release, he fired a wrist shot that found its mark past Vasilevski.

Canada/Russia Challenge Game Day: 8/14/12

Canada 4 @ Russia 2

D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-1-1, 0 PIM
D Artem Sergeev, RUS: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
G Andrei Vasilevski, RUS: Loss, 41 saves on 45 shots

The final game in the exhibition series took place in Halifax last night and ended in a decisive victory for Team Canada. Although Game 4 got off to a similar start to the night before with Russia taking two early leads despite finding themselves mostly hemmed in their own zone or conceding possession for changes and setting up defensively at even-strength. The Canadians finally took the lead (their first since Game 1 of the series), though, nearly midway through the second period and they never relented. Team Russia did manage to generate some quality scoring chances but could not muster a much-needed goal before the game slipped away for good late in the final period. It did help that the Russian coaching staff opted, until just a handful of minutes remained, to keep its team passive and structured in the neutral zone in an apparent attempt to conserve their young squad's energy. For much of the time they trailed, Russia seemed content to try and mount a comeback with selective counterattacks and opportunistic play and, failing that, to try and decide the series in overtime.
