North American Juniors Game Night: 1/9/11

QMJHL

Gatineau Olympiques 5 @ Montreal Juniors 3
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 2 Hits
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
G Michael Zador, OS: Loss, 24 saves on 30 shots.
With Attack: 4 GP, 2-1-0-0, 4.08 GAA, .867 sv%, 0 SO
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: 1/8/11

Penticton Vees 5 @ Surrey Eagles 1

Penticton took both games from Surrey this weekend, winning 5-1 in the second half of a home-and-home series. O’Donnell scored on the power play late in the second period.

USHL

Dubuque Fighting Saints 5 @ Fargo Force 0
C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG
Season totals: 25 GP, 14-17-31, +16, 18 PIM

Fargo had a chance to pull into a first place tie with Dubuque in the Western Conference, but the Force was blown out by the Saints at home. Mullin was scoreless for the second straight game.

QMJHL

Val-d’Or Foreurs 4 @ Montreal Juniors 6
D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 31 GP, 5-22-27, +13, 18 PIM

OHL

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 31 GP, 1-13-14, +11, 6 PIM

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

Owen Sound bounced back from a tough loss in Kingston on Friday night with a close win against the Bulls. Despite the fact Zador sat last night and the Attack was playing one of the league’s weaker teams, Zador watched from the bench. It was a good decision as his partner in net, Jordan Binnington, was the game’s Second Star.

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 4 @ Tri-City Americans 9
RW Carter Ashton, TC: Did not play.
With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -11, 44 PIM
With Tri-City: 0 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -11, 44 PIM

Ashton has yet to make his debut for TC after being traded by Regina before the World Junior tournament.

Vancouver Giants 5 @ Prince George Cougars 7
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season totals: 32 GP, 25-16-41, -2, 10 PIM

Connolly scored twice and has five points in his first two games back from the WJCs. He was called a future 50-goal scorer at the NHL level by TSN during one of Canada’s games. Prince George broke a 5-5 tie midway through the third period and added an empty netter to give the game its final score.

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
With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 31 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.

Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Kingston Frontenacs 4
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM

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.

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

Season totals: 34 GP, 18-22-40, -2, 35 PIM

Coming off a stellar individual effort at the World Junior Championships (7 goals, 9 points), Panik scored a "nifty" (per durhamregion.com) shorthanded goal in his first game back at Guelph, helping the Storm to a shootout win over Oshawa. Panik was not called upon to participate in the shootout as the first two Storm shooters scored. The win was Guelph’s third in a row and they are 7-2-1 over the past 10 games. Panik is within one point of his OHL career high of 41, set last season with Windsor and Belleville. He has already set a new career high for assists.
