North American Juniors Game Night: 1-8-12


Gatineau Olympiques 5 @ Acadie-Bathurst Titan 6 (OT)

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 32 GP, 3-17-20, -3, 29 PIM

New Olympiques' captain Adam Janosik (pictured earned an assist in a 6-5 overtime loss Sunday. Gatineau underwent somewhat of a sell-off as they traded away both their captain and leading scorer. Janosik remains, which is somewhat confusing as this is likely his last year in major junior. Matthew Bissonette, a 6-4 undrafted center, had two goals and two assists for the Titan on Sunday, including the overtime winner. He has exploded this year for 33 goals and 68 points in 45 games. He is not related to the Coyotes’ Paul “BizNasty” Bissonette.

Schemitsch will get a lot of looks from Lightning player development consultant Steve Thomas, whose son, Christian (Rangers) plays for the Gens. Christian Thomas scored his 18th goal of the season on Sunday.
