North American Juniors Game Night: 9-30-11

QMJHL

Gatineau Olympiques 2 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 5

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-3-3, -3, 5 PIM

Janosik’s power play assist gave him three helpers in three games. Gatineau was down 3-0 by the mid-way point of the game and had to play catch-up all night.

Moncton Wildcats 1 @ Quebec Remparts 5

D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 0 Hit
Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

Milan and the Wildcats played on the same rink the Lightning practiced on earlier in the day. Patrick Roy’s Remparts skated to an easy 5-1 win Friday night. Milan had his first point of the season in his second game. Moncton was already down 5-0 at the time, unfortunately. The Lightning are in Quebec City to play the Canadiens Saturday night.

OHL

Sudbury Wolves 2 @ London Knights 8

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 3 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 2 PIM

This is hard to understand. The Knights have scored eight goals in two of their three games this season, yet of those 16 goals, Namestnikov has only one assist toward the total. The good news for London is they’re getting it done without the first rounder’s offensive production. There’s enough talent around him that Namestnikov should have a big season. Finishing on the minus side of even in an 8-2 win is not going to help much. Second year player Ryan Rupert (2012) had a hatter for London.
0-0-1

Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 4 PIM

Schemitsch had an assist for the second straight game, but his Owen Sound Attack fell in a rematch of last year’s OHL championship won by the Attack. The Majors, last year’s Memorial Cup hosts, got the better of Owen Sound in the Cup tournament and finished runner-up to St. John last May. Leafs 2011 first rounder Stuart Percy had two goals for the Majors.
