Quebec improved to 2-0 with Adam Erne in the lineup as the Lightning’s second round pick in 2013 contributed three assists in Wednesday’s 4-1 win over Sherbrooke. Erne, who played center last year but is listed as a winger this season, took the second-most faceoffs for the Remparts on Wednesday, going 12 for 19 at the dot. He’s 22/29 for the season.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Shawinigan Cataractes 3 @ Quebec Remparts 6

W/C Adam Erne, QUE: 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 2 Hits, 6 SOG, 10/10 FO, *Second Star*
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne made his 2014-2015 debut for the Remparts and was second star for scoring a goal and adding a pair of helpers. His goal was unassisted and came shorthanded. Quebec went 2-3 in the five games Erne was with the Lightning prior to the NHL club reassigning him to juniors. Erne can play in the AHL next season if he doesn’t make the NHL, but is too young this year. He is expected to have a huge season in Quebec City as long as he can stay healthy. He was a center last year for Quebec, but was listed as a left wing on the official scoresheet on Sunday. He did take 10 faceoffs, however, which was third-most on the team. Erne was one of three players wearing alternate captain’s A’s on Sunday for Quebec. He was an alternate captain last year.

Guelph Storm 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 1

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

DiGiacinto did not play as he continues to serve a 5-game suspension received in Game 3 of last year’s playoffs vs London. DiGiacinto started a fight with London’s Gemel Smith as the two skated up the ice, which turned into a line brawl. London Coach and General Manager Mark Hunter compared the confrontation to the Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident and the OHL agreed, giving DiGiacinto a 5-game ban for “bullying.” He is now three games into his 5-game timeout.

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

DiGiacinto, who is expected to play a first line role this year with the Spits, did not play on Friday. He tweeted earlier in the day that he’d be a healthy scratch as he was just returned to the team from Tampa Bay. Super-prospect Connor McDavid (2015) had a goal, two assists, and was first star for the visiting Otters.

Regina Pats 7 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 1

C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Moose Jaw’s newly named captain, Brayden Point (pictured), registered an assist in his first game of the season with Moose Jaw after spending the last few weeks with the Lightning. His Warriors were blown out at home, however, 7-1. Moose Jaw has been outscored 18-3 in their three games this year. They finished 10th in the 12-team Eastern Conference last season.

Medicine Hat Tigers 4 @ Calgary Hitmen 2

D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

Thomas made his season debut after being reassigned to the Hitmen from Tampa Bay earlier this week. He had hooking and holding minor penalties in the game. A mobile, two-way defender, the key to Thomas raising his point totals will be gaining power play time this season.
