Tournament totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM
Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, +3, 2 PIM
In a wild one, Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov assisted on a Nikita Gusev goal and Nikita Nesterov added a power play assist, but it was not enough as Russia fell 10-7 to the OHL All-Stars. Ex-Lightning rookie camper Seth Griffith had 1 goal and 3 points for the OHL in the win. The two squads will square off again on Monday.
Moncton Wildcats 4 @ Acadie-Bathurst Titan 3 (SO)
D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 16 GP, 0-3-3, -5, 13 PIM
Milan has only registered one point in his last 14 games. Playing in a pair with Coyotes first rounder Brandon Gormley, heâ€™s the more stay-at-home of the two, but there are opportunities for points.
Owen Sound Attack 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 3
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 18 GP, 0-8-8, +1, 14 PIM
After starting the season slowly, Schemitsch (pictured) has at least a point in four of his last six games. He is on pace for 28 assists this season, which would beat last yearâ€™s mark of 20, but fall short of his career high of 36 set in his rookie/draft year.
Green Bay Gamblers 4 @ Waterloo Black Hawks 0
G Adam Wilcox, GB: Win, 26 saves on 26 shots, shutout
Season Totals: 4-2-0, 2.67 GAA, .906 sv%, 1 SO

London Knights 4 @ Erie Otters 3
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 18 GP, 10-11-21, +9, 18 PIM
London scored three times in the first period, then held on for a 4-3 win against the leagueâ€™s worst team. Namestnikov had what turned out to be the game winning goal when he scored his 10th of the season late in the second period to give the Knights a 4-1 lead. He now has at least a point in seven of his last eight games.
Owen Sound Attack 1 @ Belleville Bulls 2
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

Green Bay Gamblers 0 @ Des Moines Buccaneers 4
G Adam Wilcox, GB: Loss, 29 saves on 33 shots
Season Totals: 3-2-0, 3.21 GAA, .890 sv%, 0 SO
Wilcox couldnâ€™t make the most of a rare start for the Gamblers, allowing four goals in a shutout loss in Iowa.
PEI Rocket 7 @ Gatineau Olympiques 6 (OT)
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -3, 2 PIM (hooking), 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 15 GP, 1-10-11, -5, 15 PIM
Janosik (pictured) had an assist in a wild game against PEI, but also finished a team-worst minus-3.

D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 15 GP, 0-3-3, -4, 13 PIM
Milan has only registered a point in one of his last 13 games. He had a quiet night on the scoresheet Friday, but is no doubt happy Moncton got a win in Halifax.
Brampton Battalion 2 @ London Knights 4
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (check from behind)
Season Totals: 17 GP, 9-11-20, +8, 16 PIM

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (playing with broken stick)
Season Totals: 16 GP, 0-5-5, -1, 14 PIM
Schemitsch seems a long way away from his 40 point rookie season, but heâ€™s really developed positionally.
Quebec Remparts 4 @ Gatineau Olympiques 1
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking), 5 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 14 GP, 1-9-10, -2, 15 PIM
