Halifax Mooseheads 10 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 1

C/W Jonathan Drouin, HAL: 1-5-6, +7, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 0 Hits, 10/14 FO, *First Star*

Wow. Less than a week after fellow Lightning prospect Matt Peca had a six-point game for Quinnipiac University, Drouin set a new regular season career high with a six pointer in Sydney. Drouin scored the game’s opening goal, then added five assists before the end of the second period. His five assists in a game were also a regular season career high. He had six assists in a playoff game last season. He didn’t play much in the third period tonight with Halifax holding a 10-0 lead entering the final frame. Drouin’s teammate, Nikolaj Ehlers, had a hat trick for the third straight game. Drouin, who was named the NHL's top prospect in The Hockey News' Future Watch issue, currently has a 9-game point streak in which he has 24 points.
