C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-2-2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 42 GP, 17-38-55, 20 PIM

O’Donnell remains second on the Vees in scoring, seven points behind defenseman and Denver commit Joey Leleggia. The 5-10, 180-pound, left-handed defenseman was passed over in the 2010 draft. O’Donnell is tied for 11th in the BCHL points race. Undersized 20-year-old forward David Morley of Victoria, a St. Cloud State commit, leads the league with 68 points in 40 games.

USHL

Fargo Force 3 @ Sioux City Musketeers 1
C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 27 GP, 14-19-33, +17, 18 PIM

Fargo pulled into a first place tie with Dubuque, though the Fighting Saints still have four games in hand on the Force. Mullin has fallen to fourth in league scoring, eight points behind Indiana’s Blake Coleman. Born in Texas, Coleman is undrafted and is committed to play collegiately with Mullin at Miami of Ohio. Mullin is tied for third in the league in plus/minus, two behind Coleman.

QMJHL

D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (roughing)
Season Totals: 35 GP, 0-5-5, -8, 50 PIM

In the first game since the Soo fired head coach Denny Lambert, they drew the Western Conference-leading Saginaw Spirit. Despite putting up a good fight, the Greyhounds fell 3-2. Beukeboom remains without a goal this season.

With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -11, 44 PIM
Season Totals: 30 GP, 17-12-29, -11, 44 PIM

Ashton finally made his TC debut and didn’t take long to make an impression as he scored the game’s opening goal. He was put on a line with TC leading scorer Adam Hughesman (undrafted), who is fourth in league scoring at 26-32-58.

Chilliwack Bruins 3 @ Prince George Cougars 7
RW Brett Connolly, PG: Did not play (injured – knee).
Season totals: 34 GP, 25-15-40, -5, 12 PIM

Connolly is out 3-6 weeks with a sprained knee suffered in a loss to Chilliwack the last game the Cougars played. PG got a little revenge on the Bruins without Connolly Friday.

D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -2, 9 PIM (roughing, fighting vs. Christian Mangus, roughing)
Season totals: 44 GP, 2-10-12, +8, 75 PIM

Season Totals: 35 GP, 5-14-19, +6, 20 PIM
D Charles Landry, MTL: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 32 GP, 6-22-28, +14, 18 PIM

This was a good game for Lightning prospect watchers as both Bolt prospects scored in the game. Janosik (pictured) has been hitting the scoresheet regularly since his return from the WJCs. Landry scored his sixth of the season, which ties his career high for goals in a season set last year with Drummondville in twice as many games.

OHL

London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 34 GP, 0-5-5, -6, 48 PIM

The Soo outshot London 27-25 in the game.

Guelph Storm 4 @ Saginaw Spirit 5
C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
With Guelph: 9 GP, 6-5-11, -5, 8 PIM
With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 31 PIM
Season totals: 36 GP, 20-22-42, -5, 39 PIM

Panik scored his 20th goal of the season and his third in three games since returning from the WJCs, but it wasn’t enough for Guelph to beat Saginaw. He has a five game goal streak going back to mid-December.

Owen Sound Attack 4 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
Season totals: 32 GP, 1-14-15, +11, 8 PIM

With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals: 22 GP, 12-4-1-1, 3.47 GAA, .877 sv%, 1 SO

Owen Sound scored the game’s first two goals, but they couldn’t make them stand up and ended up, losing in Ottawa 6-4. This was not a good showing for Zador, who doesn’t get many chances to play anyway. Kings second rounder Tyler Toffoli had a hat trick for Ottawa. He’s up to 38 goals and 75 points in just 41 games this year.

North American Juniors Game Night: 1/7/11

BCHL

Surrey Eagles 3 @ Penticton Vees 4
C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-1-1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 40 GP, 16-34-50, 18 PIM

O’Donnell earned an assist on the Vees game winning goal scored on the power play midway through the third period. The assist gave O’Donnell 50 points for the year. He had 61 in 55 games last year for the Winnipeg South Blues of the MJHL.

USHL

Waterloo Black Hawks 2 @ Fargo Force 7
C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
Season totals: 24 GP, 14-17-31, +17, 18 PIM

Somehow Fargo scored seven goals and their leading scorer, Mullin, didn’t figure in on any of them. He’s likely too busy smiling about the win to care.

QMJHL

Gatineau Olympiques 5 @ Victoriaville Tigres 1
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 34 GP, 4-13-17, +5, 20 PIM

Coming off a strong WJC performance in which he was Slovakia’s second leading scorer to fellow Lightning prospect Richard Panik, Janosik earned the primary assist on Gatineau’s first goal en route to helping the Olympiques to a big road win.

OHL

Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 1
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -6, 48 PIM

The Soo was outshot 35-16 in the game. Not good.

Plymouth Whalers 4 @ Guelph Storm 1
C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 1-0-1, -2, 4 PIM (checking from behind, roughing), *Second Star*
With Guelph: 8 GP, 5-5-10, -4, 8 PIM

Season totals: 35 GP, 19-22-41, -4, 39 PIM

Panik scored midway through the third to cut the Whalers’ lead to 2-1, but Plymouth added a power play goal a few minutes later to clinch the win. Panik has goals in consecutive games since his return from the WJCs.

Season Totals: 21 GP, 12-3-1-1, 3.34 GAA, .881 sv%, 1 SO

Owen Sound had a 2-0 lead to start the game, but Kingston scored four unanswered goals to win. Kingston’s Eric Gudbranson, the Panthers’ first rounder last year, scored his fourth of the season in his first game back from Team Canada.

WHL

Tri-City Americans 2 @ Everett Silvertips 3
RW Carter Ashton, TC: Did not play.

Vancouver Giants 4 @ Prince George Cougars 3
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-1-2, E, 2 PIM (elbowing), *First Star*
Season totals: 31 GP, 23-15-38, -4, 10 PIM

After not scoring in his time for Team Canada, Connolly had a goal and an assist and earned First Star in his return to Prince George. His goal came after he toe-dragged past a defender. The Cougars gave up a third period goal to the Giants, however, and took the loss. With the win, the Giants tied the Cougars for tops in the B.C. Division, though Prince George has two games in hand.

Saskatoon Blades 5 @ Prince Albert Raiders 1
D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 41 GP, 2-10-12, +11, 64 PIM

C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 21 GP, 13-16-29, +16, 16 PIM

Mullin scored at 3:16 of overtime to lift the Force to a road win in division-leading Dubuque. He also added an assist on Fargo’s other goal, yet the decision makers in Iowa decided he shouldn’t be a game star. Two Saints were first and second star, respectively. Mullin has a five game point streak in which he has 10 points. He has 15 points in his last seven games.

OHL

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 3
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 30 GP, 0-5-5, -8, 46 PIM

Beukeboom scored seven times last year, but after 30 games the Soo captain is still looking for his first goal of the season.

Barrie Colts 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 8
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 28 GP, 1-13-14, +11, 6 PIM

Season Totals: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.41 GAA, .878 sv%, 1 SO

Zador won last time out, but was back in his familiar backup role for the Attack Wednesday. The Attack put up a snowman against Barrie, paced by four points each by Joey Hishon (Avalanche) and Andrew Fritsch (2011 draft).

WHL

North American Juniors Game Night: 12/28/10

Light night in the junior ranks with a healthy chunk of the Lightning's prospects participating in the U20 WJC's:

OHL
Owen Sound 7 @ Barrie 6 (SO)
Geoffrey Schemitsch, Owen Sound, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 27 GP, 1-13-14, +9, 6 PIM

Michael Zador, Owen Sound, Win, 31/37, 5.54 GAA, .838 sv%
Season totals: 11-3-2, 0 SO, 3.41 GAA, .878 sv%

Geoffrey Schemitsch assisted on a Liam Heelis goal in Owen Sound's 7-6 shootout victory over Barrie. Heelis is rocking the black rimmed glasses in his roster picture, proving ZZ Tops' old adage that every girl's crazy about a sharp dressed man. Michael Zador continued to lead a charmed life, stopping 3 of 4 shooters to steal the shootout win despite an abysmal .838 save percentage in the contest. Only in the Lightning organization can a man have a sub .880 save percentage and be 8 games over .500 on the season.

QMJHL
Montreal 3 @ Shawinigan 4 (SO)
Charles Landry, Montreal, 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 28 GP, 5-21-26, +14, 16 PIM

Meanwhile, in the "Q", Charles Landry assisted on the final two goals of a Montreal comeback by Xavier Ouellet and David Rose to help force overtime, but the Juniors still fell 4-3 in the shootout. Shawiningan's Gabriel Girard was named the game's number one star after turning away 37 of 40 shots and 2 of 4 attempts for the shootout victory.
