Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 2 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 6

W Nikita Kucherov, R-N: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 0 Hits
Season totals: 14 GP, 10-14-24, +5, 2 PIM
With R-N: 8 GP, 7-7-14, +6, 0 PIM
With Quebec: 6 GP, 3-7-10, -1, 2 PIM

D Artem Sergeev, VDO: 0-1-1, +3, 2 PIM, 1 SOG, 2 Hits
Season totals: 35 GP, 5-23-28, +16, 26 PIM

Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov (pictured) was in the Rouyn-Noranda lineup for the first time since December 7 because of his time with Team Russia at the World Junior Championships and an injury sustained in the tournament. On Thursday, he faced fellow Lightning prospect and Team Russia teammate Artem Sergeev, who was plus-3 with an assist. Kucherov is a boost for the Huskies lineup as they move toward the playoff race.

Ontario Hockey League

Barrie Colts 2 @ Niagara IceDogs 1

D Jake Dotchin, BAR: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 46 GP, 4-12-16, -3, 51 PIM
With Barrie: 8 GP, 2-0-2, -4, 12 PIM
With Owen Sound: 38 GP, 2-12-14, +1, 39 PIM

Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin was scoreless in a low-scoring Barrie win in St. Catherine’s. Niagara is no doubt missing uber-prospect defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who is on the verge of making the Boston Bruins.
