D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
Last Season’s Totals: 68 GP, 14-24-38, -26, 76 PIM

Milan was plus-1 in the game, fresh off spending training camp with the Lightning. He was awarded for his good play at camp with an NHL contract that will kick in when he turns pro next season. Milan and Phoenix Coyote first rounder Brandon Gormley – who was thought to be a likely choice for the Lightning with their 2010 first rounder – both played for the first time in the game. Gormley had a goal. Shawinigan is the Memorial Cup hosts this season and is ranked No.7 in the country in the latest CHL MasterCard Top-10. Peter Sakaris (undrafted) had both goals for the Cataractes.

Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Barrie Colts 1 (SO)

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM

Schemitsch earned a power play assist on the game tying goal scored early in the third period to help the Attack to a 2-1 shootout win over the home side, Barrie. Schemitsch did not participate in the shootout. Schemitsch had 40 points as an OHL rookie two years ago, but due to injuries and a different role, fell to 20 points last season.
