Darcy extended his point streak to seven games while announcing his figurative “return” to the QMJHL. Darcy, who was in search of a pro contract this fall, struggled after coming back to Cape Breton and was eventually scratched and traded. His five-point game tonight gets him to a point-per-game pace for the season and Sherbrooke will enjoy the QMJHL Second-Team All-Star for the rest of the year. This is the player Cape Breton thought they were receiving when the Lightning decided to send Darcy back to the Q in September.

Darcy (estrieplus.com photo) extended his point streak to six games and scored for the second game after not scoring into a guarded net until he was traded to Sherbrooke.
