North American Juniors Game Night: 10/11/10

OHL

Ottawa 67’s 4 @ Oshawa Generals 3
G Michael Zador, OSH: Loss, 22 saves on 26
Season Totals: 4-1-0-0, 3.61 GAA, .894 sv%

Zador got a confidence boost when Coach/GM Chris DePiero put him right back in net after Zador was pulled in his previous game. Zador wasn’t great, however, and suffered his first (technically) loss of the year against the 67’s despite the Gens outshooting Ottawa 36-26. This is a crucial time for Zador, who struggled mightily with consistency last season. If he can right this quickly, it could go a long way to him getting a contract this spring. If he continues to ride the roller coaster, the uphill climb to a contract gets steeper.

WHL

Prince George Cougars 7 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 8
RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 8 GP, 6-5-11, -1, 2 PIM

Connolly, who has at least a point in all 8 games this year, scored the game’s first 2 goals, but the Cougars would later blow a 6-3 third period lead in 6 minutes and eventually have to tie the game to send it to overtime. The Oil Kings won it in the extra session.

D Charles Landry, MTL: Did not play.

Season Totals: 7 GP, 5-5-10, +2, 11 PIM

Panik earned his second First Star of the season after a three point night. This is exactly what the Lightning want to see from Panik at the junior level – lighting up the scoreboard. Panik has all the skills to be an elite forward at this level.

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, +3, 0 PIM

Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 16 PIM

Beukeboom is still looking for his first point of the season. The Soo captain has two fights, however. Beukeboom jumped Hooey after Hooey laid an open ice check on a Soo player. As a result of Beukeboom's actions, the Soo unsuccessfully tried to kill off a seven-minute power play. The Greyhounds were outshot 40-25, including 18-5 in the second period.
