Season totals: 48 GP, 34-37-71, +22, 87 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne earned his second-straight first star award with his second-straight two-goal game. The only blemish on his stat line was a very rare zero hits, but it was a road game and road teams don’t get friendly stat keepers. Erne is now within one point of his career high for points in a season, set two years ago in 68 games.

2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Prince George Cougars 3 @ Calgary Hitmen 4 (SO)

D Ben Thomas, CAL: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 42 GP, 5-19-24, +10, 20 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 7-24-31, +11, 39 PIM

Calgary won its ninth straight game, but needed a shootout to do it. They outshot Brett Connolly’s old team 53-22, including 7-1 in overtime. Thomas’ assist came on the power play and gives him at least one point in seven of his last nine games. Thomas (pictured) has a three-game point streak.

Prospect of the Week: 2-11-15

We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Bolt Prospect of the Week for February 11, 2015 is … Anthony DeAngelo, D, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL – Canada).

In Anthony DeAngelo’s first game with Sault Ste. Marie after being traded by Sarnia, the Lightning 2014 first rounder did not register a point. That was January 9.

In 11 games since that time, DeAngelo has hit the scoresheet every game, racking up 22 points over that timespan. The 5'10" New Jersey native had seven points (and a fight) in three games last week, earning him our Prospect of the Week award.

2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne had two goals on Sunday then ended the game with a charging major and a game misconduct at the 20:00 mark. Things got a bit ugly at the end. Erne said he was sticking up for a teammate by laying a big hit, then turned around and Adam Chapman had his gloves off ready to go. Erne talked about the incident on the Remparts website (click here).

2013-14 totals: 51 GP, 15-56-71, -34, 90 PIM

DeAngelo extended his point streak to 10 games with a goal and three assists. He earned first star in the Soo’s statement win over Connor McDavid and Erie. The two teams are projected to meet in the Western Conference Finals in a few months. The Greyhounds are now five points ahead of Erie for the top seed in the West. McDavid had an assist in Friday’s game.

Windsor Spitfires 2 @ Oshawa Generals 5

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

2013-14 totals: 39 GP, 2-19-21, +6, 102 PIM

Masin has seven points in his last seven games. He’s really come on offensively in the second half of the season, as is typical for an import player in his first year.

Western Hockey League

Spokane Chiefs 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 2

C Brayden Point, MJ: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 41 GP, 21-35-56, +8, 32 PIM
2013-14 totals: 72 GP, 36-55-91, -27, 53 PIM

Point created a turnover in front of the Spokane net that led to the Warriors’ second goal, but he was not credited with an assist. Moose Jaw put six forwards on the ice after pulling their goalie late in the game, but they couldn’t find the tying goal. They came close a few times, including once where Point was in front but couldn’t bat an airborne puck into the net. Moose Jaw retired Ryan Smyth’s jersey before the game. Smyth’s son was reportedly mostly interested in meeting Point because of his performance at the World Junior tournament.

Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ Quebec Remparts 7

Season totals: 45 GP, 30-35-65, +16, 76 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM

Erne set a new career high for goals in a season, hitting 30 for the year. He was on pace last year before injuries and WJC time cut his games. He’s also already passed his previous PIM career high. It looks as though Erne has been moved back to wing. He had been playing center for a few weeks, which he played last year. He projects as a winger at the professional level.

Season totals: 44 GP, 15-18-33, -6, 85 PIM
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

Windsor is three points out of the last playoff spot in the West, which could mean DiGiacinto could be available for AHL Syracuse if needed.

Guelph Storm 9 @ Peterborough Petes 4

D Dominik Masin, PBO: 0-1-1, +3, 7 PIM
Season totals: 38 GP, 7-14-21, -16, 64 PIM

BU’s 67th shot was the game-winner, scored in double overtime against Harvard in the opening game of the famed Beanpot tournament for each club. Neither Lightning prospect registered a point, though MacLeod was on the ice for the game-winning goal. BU goes on to face Northeastern in the championship game. Possible Lightning free agent target Clay Witt stopped 21 Boston College shots in the Huskies’ 3-2 semifinal win.
