C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (hooking, high sticking)
Season Totals: 10 GP, 6-4-10, +6, 12 PIM

Namestnikov was scoreless for his second straight game as London, the CHL’s top ranked team, fell in Sarnia to Steven Stamkos’s alma mater, 4-3. Likely 2012 top-3 pick Nail Yakupov had a goal – his seventh – and an assist for Sarnia. Devils pick Reid Boucher scored his 10th goal in nine games for Sarnia. Their goals erased a 3-2 third period lead for the Knights. The loss was only London’s second of the season. They continue to lead the league in goals with just over five a game.
