CHL Game Night: 12-5-09

OHL

Owen Sound Attack 5 @ Belleville Bulls 3
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 27 GP, 9-8-17, +1, 26 PIM
With Bulls: 14 GP, 7-7-14, +3, 6 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

DeCoste’s point streak is now at four games.

Barrie Colts 6 @ Niagara IceDogs 1
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 30 GP, 18-20-38, +17, 22 PIM

Hutchings scored his fourth shorthanded goal in the last three games, extending his goal-scoring streak to seven games and has point streak to eight. He has eight points in his last three games and likely has a Player of the Week award in his immediate future. Barrie is on a 17 game win streak.

Sarnia Sting 2 @ Erie Otters 3 (SO)
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Did not play.
Season Totals: 7 GP, 4-2-1-0, 2.93 GAA, .915 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Janus served as the backup to Ramis Sadikov (2010 draft) as he continues to battle injuries. Shane Owen, Erie’s third goaltender, was let go recently upon Janus’ (re)arrival to the club from AHL Norfolk. Owen, 19, passed through OHL waivers unclaimed and has since signed with the QMJHL’s Moncton Wildcats, home of Lightning prospect Mark Barberio. Owen went 3-6-2, 4.31, .880 for Erie in Janus’ absence.

Windsor Spitfires 9 @ Peterborough Petes 5
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-1-1, E, 7 PIM (roughing, fighting)
Season Totals: 29 GP, 7-9-16, +13, 19 PIM

Panik (pictured) tangled with Petes defenseman Chris Buonomo (2010) in his first OHL fight. Panik got in several rights before dropping him with a left (watch it here). Windsor now has at least a point in 21 straight games. At 25-3-0-3 they remain on a collision course with Barrie (25-4-0-1) for the OHL championship this spring. They play each other for the first time in the regular season on January 14.
