Juniors Game Night: 2-12-15

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Quebec Remparts 6 @ Victoriaville Tigres 4

W Adam Erne, QUE: 2-1-3, +4, 2 PIM, 5 SOG, 8/10 FO, 0 Hits, *First Star*
Season totals: 48 GP, 34-37-71, +22, 87 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne earned his second-straight first star award with his second-straight two-goal game. The only blemish on his stat line was a very rare zero hits, but it was a road game and road teams don’t get friendly stat keepers. Erne is now within one point of his career high for points in a season, set two years ago in 68 games.

2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point set a season high for penalty minutes in a game when an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was tacked on to a holding-the-stick call in the second period.

Prince George Cougars 3 @ Calgary Hitmen 4 (SO)

D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 42 GP, 5-19-24, +10, 20 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

Calgary won its ninth straight game, but needed a shootout to do it. They outshot Brett Connolly’s old team 53-22, including 7-1 in overtime. Thomas’ assist came on the power play and gives him at least one point in seven of his last nine games. Thomas (pictured) has a three-game point streak.

Prospect of the Week: 2-11-15

We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Bolt Prospect of the Week for February 11, 2015 is … Anthony DeAngelo, D, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL – Canada).

In Anthony DeAngelo’s first game with Sault Ste. Marie after being traded by Sarnia, the Lightning 2014 first rounder did not register a point. That was January 9.

In 11 games since that time, DeAngelo has hit the scoresheet every game, racking up 22 points over that timespan. The 5'10" New Jersey native had seven points (and a fight) in three games last week, earning him our Prospect of the Week award.

Season totals: 47 GP, 32-36-68, +18, 85 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne had two goals on Sunday then ended the game with a charging major and a game misconduct at the 20:00 mark. Things got a bit ugly at the end. Erne said he was sticking up for a teammate by laying a big hit, then turned around and Adam Chapman had his gloves off ready to go. Erne talked about the incident on the Remparts website (click here).
