Season totals: 28 GP, 2-7-9, +2, 31 PIM

Jake Dotchin got his name on the scoresheet for the fourth time in his last five games with an assist in Owen Sound’s shootout victory over the Whalers on Wednesday. The Attack have won 5-straight games and are one point behind London for first in the Midwest Division.

Peterborough Petes 2 @ Belleville Bulls 3 (OT)

D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 29 GP, 4-18-22, -24, 20 PIM

Slater Koekkoek had his 4-game point streak snapped in a close loss in Belleville. This was Koekkoek’s first game since being left off the invite list for Canada’s World Junior Selection Camp. It’s not a huge surprise that he wasn’t on the roster considering, due to injury, he wasn’t on Canada’s initial radar. We expect Koekkoek to be a big part of Canada’s WJC representation next year.

Drummondville scored on the power play in overtime after Paquette’s 13th goal of the season tied the game with just over six minutes left in the third period. Paquette scored once in each period of regulation. He has a 4-game point streak and has registered at least a point in 10 of his last 12 games.

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.
