C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 26 GP, 14-18-32, +16, 18 PIM

Mullin broke a mini two-game scoreless streak when he set up Dan Weissenhofer for the game tying goal in the third period. Mullin was the only Force player of five to not convert their shootout chance in the tiebreaker. Fargo pulled within two points of conference leading Dubuque, though the Fighting Saints have four games in hand.

QMJHL

Montreal Juniors 5 @ Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 1
D Charles Landry, MTL: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 33 GP, 7-22-29, +15, 18 PIM

Landry’s seventh goal of the year was an unassisted marker. With the goal Landry, who already has an NHL contract from the Lightning, set a career high for goals in a season. He had six last year for Drummondville. He’s within one point of his career high for points in a year, also set last year in 68 games.

Quebec Remparts 4 @ Gatineau Olympiques 3
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 1 Hit, *Third Star*
Season Totals: 36 GP, 6-15-21, +7, 20 PIM

Janosik has four points in his last two games as he had another goal and assist Wednesday. His confidence has skyrocketed since he was Slovakia’s second leading scorer at the World Junior tournament.

WHL

Prince George Cougars 2 @ Chilliwack Bruins 5
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 34 GP, 25-15-40, -5, 12 PIM

Connolly was scoreless for the second game in a row and Prince George was badly outshot (35-24) for the second game in a row, losing to the Bruins in Chilliwack. The Cougars remain tied with Vancouver for the B.C. Division lead at 21-18-2-1.

Saskatoon Blades 3 @ Regina Pats 4 (SO)
D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 43 GP, 2-10-12, +10, 66 PIM

Saskatoon put up 62 – that’s right – 62 shots against Regina goaltender Matt Hewitt (2011 draft), who was the game’s First Star. Hewitt led the Pats to a shootout win. Regina had 33 shots. Brayden Schenn has yet to suit up for Saskatoon.

North American Juniors Game Night: 1/11/11

WHL

Seattle Thunderbirds 1 @ Tri-City Americans 7
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, who will wear No.7 with TC, has yet to make his debut for the Americans after being traded by Regina before the World Junior tournament. TC has scored nine and seven goals in their last two games, respectively, so Ashton’s addition can only make them more dangerous. The Tri-City Herald reports Ashton will join the Americans today (January 12).

Prince George Cougars 2 @ Vancouver Giants 5
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (hooking)
Season totals: 33 GP, 25-15-40, -4, 12 PIM

Connolly had his two game post-WJC goal streak stopped as PG was outshot 41-16 in the game.

Brandon Wheat Kings 4 @ Saskatoon Blades 5 (SO)
D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (interference)
Season totals: 42 GP, 2-10-12, +10, 66 PIM

Newly acquired Blade Brayden Schenn, who started the year with the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, did not play in this game. He was traded from Brandon earlier in the week. His addition gives the Blades, already with the best record in the league, a legitimate shot at the Memorial Cup. Schenn’s Team Canada (WJC) teammate Curtis Hamilton was named First Star for Saskatoon.

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

Landry attempted three shots, but none ended up being counted as official shots. The Foreurs scored four times in the first period and had a 3-0 lead before eventually falling to Montreal.

OHL

Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Belleville Bulls 1
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 31 GP, 1-13-14, +11, 6 PIM

With Attack: 3 GP, 2-0-0-0, 3.20 GAA, .897 sv%, 0 SO
With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
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

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.
