Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 4 @ Moncton Wildcats 5 (SO)

C Cameron Darcy, CB: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM, 7 SOG, 14/19 FO, 1 Hit
Season totals: 18 GP: 1-11-13, -5, 14 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Darcy (pictured) broke his personal 3-game pointless streak with two assists, and was a highlight save away from a third assist on a potential game-winner in the final seconds of overtime. Moncton won the shootout, 1-0, but their goal came after a lengthy review to see if the puck slid into the net under Francois Brassard’s pad as Brassard’s momentum carried him into the net. The Eagles fought back from down 4-1 to tie the game. Both of Darcy’s assists came in the third period. Conor Garland (undrafted) had a goal and three assists for Moncton. Garland, who is listed at 5-8 (generous), is second in the league in points with 50 in 27 games.

Plymouth Whalers 4 @ Windsor Spitfires 5

W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 19 GP, 7-3-10, -8, 34 PIM
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM

Season totals: 23 GP, 5-8-13, -13, 41 PIM

Sherbrooke Phoenix 3 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 4 (SO)

2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Cape Breton came into the game with one win in its last 10 games, but earned a shootout victory over the Phoenix. Darcy, who appears to have fallen to the third line in terms of usage, is pointless in his last three games and in seven of his last eight. He has three assists in November. The Eagles acquired more help this week hoping to turn their abysmal season around.

Plymouth’s Sonny Milano, a Blue Jackets first rounder from last summer, had a goal and three points to lead the Whalers over the Spits, 4-3. DiGiacinto is pointless in his last four games and has just two goals and one assist in 10 games this month.

Prospect of the Week: 11-24-14

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 November 24, 2014 is … Adam Erne, Quebec Remparts (QMJHL – Canada).

The Lightning have a key ingredient to their future success stowed away in Quebec City.

Adam Erne, one of the few true power forward prospects in the system, is too young for the AHL so the Lightning sent him back to juniors to wreak havoc on his fellow teenagers, which he is doing.

The Lightning are a smallish skill club known for their speed and tenacity. Erne (6-1, 218) will provide more size in the lineup to balance out the likes of Tyler Johnson and Jonathan Drouin. He has enough skill, however, to be a prime contributor on any line rather than a complementary player whose sole role is to win wall battles and create space.
