    Ontario Hockey League

    Erie Otters 2 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 3

    W Boris Katchouk, SSM: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 0/1 FO
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 33-29-62, +40, 20 PIM
    ’16-’17 Season: 66 GP, 35-29-64, +18, 46 PIM

    W Taylor Raddysh, SSM: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 1/1 FO, *First Star*

    ‘16-‘17 Totals: 58 GP, 42-67-109, +67, 37 PIM

    The Wonder Twins connected for a pair of 3rd period goals to inch the Greyhounds past the Otters for their sixth straight victory. Katchouk got the primary assist on both of Raddysh’s goals but was robbed of a Star. Raddysh earned First Star honors against his old team and has seen a rebirth since the trade at the completion of the World Juniors, going 10-9-19 in 11 games with the Soo.

    Peterborough Petes 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 5

    W/C Christopher Paquette, PBO: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM, 4 SOG, 6/15 FO
    Season Totals: 46 G, 14-7-21, -26, 14 PIM
    ’16-‘17 Totals (NIA/PBO): 66 GP, 19-29-48, +1, 28 PIM

    Paquette opened the scoring with his 14th of the season, but the 67’s notched a power play goal and a shortie to take a 2-1 lead. Zach Gallant (DET, 2017 3rd round pick) and former Maple Leaf prospect Nikita Korostelev both scored 2nd period markers to give the Petes a 3-2 lead at the 2nd intermission. Win a period, win a hockey game, right? Sasha Chmelevski (SJS, 2017 6th round pick) capped off a three-goal 3rd period for Ottawa with two goals, the game-winner and the empty netter to seal Peterborough’s ninth straight loss.

    First Period
    17:14 SYR Archambault (4), (Yan, Condra)

    Second Period
    15:34 SYR Volkov (13), (McNeill, McBain)
    18:39 UTI Holm (10), (Boucher, Chaput)

    18:44 UTI Hamilton (3), (Holm, D'Aoust)(EN)

    Alexander Volkov was the game's second star.

    The Crunch fell despite building a 2-0 lead with less than 15 minutes left to go in the game and ultimately outshooting Utica 36-24.

    Lightning claim two road points in workmanlike fashion.

    TB-4
    VAN-2

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the victory. He was his usual outstanding self tonight, putting up the forcefield to allow the Lightning to craft a 3 goal lead through 40 minutes that they ultimately nursed to the finish line.

    First Period
    1:26 TB Kunitz (8), (Stralman, Kucherov)
    5:52 TB Hedman (7), (Stamkos, Kucherov)

    Second Period
    15:47 TB Gourde (18), (Sergachev, Peca)

    Third Period
    10:00 VAN Vanek (15), (Stecher, Boeser)
    14:30 VAN Boeser (25), (Sutter)
    16:26 TB Conacher, (unassisted)(PP)(PS)

    Nikita Kucherov and Andrei Vasilevskiy were the game's second and third stars.

    The Lightning did exactly what you want to do in a road game against an inferior opponent: they jumped on them early to get out to the 2-0 lead, built it to 3-0 after 40 minutes with some opportunism and some good goaltending. And, once you've got a 3 goal lead through 40 minutes, that's typically a knockout. As proven again in this game, teams may pull to within a goal in that scenario (the so-called "false hope goal") but they rarely get closer.

    Slater Koekkoek was -1 with 1 shot on goal in 12:51.

    Jake Dotchin was +1 with 1 blocked shot in 15:10. With tonight's appearance, his 41st of the season, Dotchin has graduated from prospect status on the website.

    Matthew Peca had a helper and was +1 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 17:53 of big ice time. He was also 65% on 20 draws, too.

    Plus a catch-up from last week...

    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Acadie-Bathurst 1 @ Halifax Mooseheads 3

    Season Totals: 43 GP, 18-44-62, +33, 20 PIM
    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    Somppi assisted on the game’s first two goals, both markers by Filip Zadina (2018 draft eligible), including what would be the game-winner in the 2nd period. Somppi earned Third Star honors. Sompii now sits tied for 3rd in the Q for total points, 3rd in league in assists, and continues to lead the Q in plus-minus.

    Friday:: Halifax Mooseheads 1 @ Moncton Wildcats 5
    Sunday:: Saint John Sea Dogs 2 @ Halifax Mooseheads 8

    Last Sunday afternoon, Sompii earned First Star honors scoring two goals and assisting on another, leading the team in putting up a snowman on the Sea Dogs.

    ‘16-‘17 Totals: 58 GP, 42-67-109, +67, 37 PIM

    Raddysh scored and assisted on two 2nd period goals that gave the Soo a 3-0 lead at the 2nd intermission, but the Spirit scored thrice in the 3rd to send the game to overtime where Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick) netted the game-winner for the Greyhounds. Since dropping two straight, the Soo have won five consecutive games as they lead the OHL as the best team.

    Wedneday:: Sudbury Wolves 0 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4
    Sunday:: Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 5 @ Saginaw Spirit 2

    Last Sunday, both Raddysh and Katchouk assisted on Hayden Verbeek’s (undrafted) game-winning goal in the Soo’s road win 5-2 over the Spirit. Raddysh potted an empty netter and assisted on another goal in that game. On Wednesday night, Raddysh scored on the power play and Katchouk assisted on a Morgan Frost tally as the Greyhounds blanked Sudbury.

    Erie Otters 4 @ Sudbury Wolves 2 (Friday)

    W Alexey Lipanov, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 0/6 FO
    Season Totals (SBY): 11 GP, 2-2-4, -9, 4 PIM
    Season Totals (BAR): 35 GP, 11-19-30, +9, 10 PIM
    Season Totals: 46 GP, 13-21-34, E, 14 PIM
    ‘16-‘17 Totals (VHL-Russia): 21 GP, 3-5-8, +5, 8 PIM

    Former Sudbury winger Troy Lajeunesse scored twice for the Otters as Erie doubled the hapless Wolves. The Sudbury winless streak stands at five games, as the Wolves are by far and away the worst team in the league.

    Wedneday:: Sudbury Wolves 0 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 4
    Sunday:: Sudbury Wolves 1 @ Mississauga Steelheads 4

    Oshawa Generals 8 @ Peterborough Petes 2

    W/C Christopher Paquette, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 13/20 FO
    Season Totals: 45 G, 13-7-20, -26, 12 PIM
    ’16-‘17 Totals (NIA/PBO): 66 GP, 19-29-48, +1, 28 PIM

    Sixteen year-old Nick Robertson (2020 draft eligible) scored both Petes goals, but the Generals got goals from eight different players as Oshawa put up a snowman Peterborough in front of 3800+ of their fans. The Petes winless streak now reaches eight games.

    Thursday:: Hamilton Bulldogs 4 @ Peterborough Petes 3
    Sunday:: Peterborough Petes 0 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2

    On Thursday night, Paquette assisted on Pavel Gogolev’s (2018 draft eligible) 2-1 go-ahead power play marker in the 2nd period. But the Bulldogs would reel off three straight and steal two points on road.

    Western Hockey League

    Kelowna Rockets 2 @ Everett Silvertips 8

    D Cal Foote, KEL: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 42 GP, 13-34-47, +19, 33 PIM
    ‘15-‘16 Totals: 71 GP, 6-51-57, +39, 41 PIM

    Cale Foote scored both of the Rockets goals, but the Silvertips put up the snowman on the scoreboard to sweep the home-and-home series between Everett and Kelowna. Getting a Third Star from hometown Everett press on a eight-goal night speaks volumes to Foote’s play, along with that +1 rating. Patrick Bajkov (undrafted) netted a hat trick and five points for the Silvertips and Garrett Pilon (WAS, 2016 3rd round pick) scored twice and tallied four points of his own.

    Friday:: Everett Silvertips 3 @ Kelowna Rockets 2
    Tuesday:: Medicine Hat Tigers 2 @ Kelowna Rockets 5

    Last Tuesday, Foote earned First Star for his goal and two assists against the Tigers, leading the Rockets to a 5-2 victory. Foote opened the scoring late in the first and then assisted on a pair of 2nd period power play goals by Carsen Twarynski (PHI, 2016 3rd round pick) and Kole Lind (VAN, 2017 2nd round pick).

    Prince Albert Raiders 4 @ Regina Pats 5 (OT)

    ’16-‘17 Totals: 65 GP: 4-22-26, -17, 81 PIM

    Sam Steel (ANA, 2016 1st round pick) scored twice and added a couple of assists for a four-point night to lead the Pats to the OT win against the visiting Raiders. Prince Albert rallied from a 4-1 deficit at the 2nd intermission, scoring thrice in the 3rd to force overtime. Cameron Hebig (undrafted) fired a game-high eight shots, finally converted in overtime to give Regina the win.

    Wednesday:: Prince George Cougars 1 @ Regina Pats 4
    Sunday:: Swift Current Broncos 4 @ Regina Pats 1

    Hajek fired a team-high seven shots last Sunday as part of a Regina 42-shot effort against the Broncos in a losing effort. On Wednesday night, Hajek racked up five more shots in a winning effort against the Cougars.

    Prince George Cougars 1 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 4

    C Brett Howden, MJ: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, 17/31 FO, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 29 GP, 18-28-46, +19, 30 PIM

    ’16-‘17 Totals (MHL-Russia): 32 GP, 0-0-0, +1, 79 PIM

    Howden earned Second Stars honors, assisting on Justin Almeida’s (2018 draft eligible) 30th goal of the season, a power play marker in the 2nd as the Warrior built up a 4-0 lead before Josh Maser (undrafted) finally solved Adam Evanoff (undrafted) late in the 3rd for Cougars lone goal.

    Friday:: Red Deer Rebels 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 1

    Friday night, Howden assisted on Moose Jaw’s lone goal by Josh Brook (MTL, 2017 2nd round pick) in a losing effort at home to the visiting Rebels from Red Deer.

    United States Hockey League

    ** Note: Cole Guttman (Dubuque) was placed on injured reserved on December 22nd following the completion of the World Junior A Challenge tournament.

    Central Illinois Flying Aces 2 @ Omaha Lancers 4

    D Nick Perbix , OMA: 0-2-2, +3, 2 PIM, 3 SOG, *Second Star*
    Season Totals: 32 GP, 1-15-16, +17, 14 PIM
    ’16-‘17 Totals (HS): 25 GP, 10-30-40, 6 PIM
    Committed to: St. Cloud State University

    Perbix assisted on both of Omaha’s 1st period goals, including a shortie by Filip Suchy (undrafted) and earned Second Star honors. The Lancers added two more goals in the 3rd period to earn the victory over the Flying Aces to sweep the back-to-back series.

    Friday:: Central Illinois Flying Aces 1 @ Omaha Lancers 8

    Walker scored a goal and added three assists as the Hornets scored twenty against the outmatched Royals. Mason Nevers notched four goals and seven points, and Liam Malmquist (uncommitted) and Evan Shoemaker (uncommitted) both netted hat tricks in the win. The Hornets next play the Minnetonka Skippers next Saturday night.

    Thursday: Edina Hornets 3 @ Wayzata Trojans 1
    Tuesday: Centennial Cougars 2 @ Edina Hornets 3

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    The Syracuse Crunch's effort early was erased by the Utica Comets’ four unanswered goals.

    The Crunch allowed two goals in a 16 second span late in the second period to tie the score and the Comets scored the eventual game-winner on the power play in the third, as Syracuse fell to Utica, 4-2, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

    “I think we’ve got to be pleased with the way we played for 29 minutes,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “Then they had that bad goal late in the … second and then they made a good play and scored the second goal. The game changed and then we had some chances. I thought (Comets goalie Richard) Bachman was the best player for them tonight. He made some great stops and then they were very opportunistic scoring on that power play.

    “They’re a good team. We were a good team tonight. We’ve got to be pleased with what we accomplished tonight, but obviously it wasn’t enough.”

    Et tu, Blujus?

    SYR-1
    UTI-3

    Connor Ingram allowed 2 goals on 36 shots for the hard luck loss.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    1:54 UTI D'Aoust (8), (Brisebois, Sifers)
    6:17 UTI Goldobin (8), (Boucher, Holm)(PP)
    19:13 SYR Yan (8), (Stephens)

    Third Period
    19:24 UTI Blujus (3), (Archibald)(PP)(EN)

    Ingram was the game's third star in defeat.

    Syracuse's recent offensive struggles may be painting us all a picture of just how important Peca and Bournival were to the lineup.

    Lightning bury Flames beneath an avalanche of soft goals.

    TB-7
    CGY-4

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 46 shots for the victory. He wasn't his sharpest through 40 minutes, although I can't call any of the goals he allowed overly soft. He did seem to get the rust off in the Third Period.

    First Period
    7:16 CGY Ferland (20), (Backlund, Hamilton)(PP)
    13:34 TB Coburn (1), (Sustr, Peca)

    Second Period
    2:04 TB Killorn (6), (Gourde, Point)(PP)
    3:38 CGY Backlund (10), (Tkachuk, Brodie)
    5:25 CGY Monahan (23), (Gaudreau, Hamilton)
    14:27 CGY Stajan (2), (Hathaway, Brodie)
    14:49 TB Peca (2), (Killorn, Stralman)

    Third Period
    0:12 TB Killorn (7), (Gourde)
    5:16 TB Conacher (4), (Peca, Killorn)
    6:22 TB Stamkos (19), (Kunitz)
    8:26 TB Conacher (5), (Callahan)

    Alex Killorn, Matthew Peca, and Cory Conacher were the game's three stars.

    I'm going to venture a guess that Jon Cooper will be happy with the result, but he won't like how wide open and wild this game ultimately was. In the end, the Lightning's victory was built on a soft goal surrendered off the rush to Peca at the end of the Second Period that gave them much better position for the comeback going into the final frame and then two absolutely putrid softies from horrible angles to Cory Conacher that ended up being the game winning goal and the last bit of dirt on the Flames' collective graves in this contest. Two summers ago the Flames weren't willing to pay the price Steve Yzerman was commanding for Ben Bishop. Not sure that decision aged well tonight.

    Slater Koekkoek was +1 with 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 15:03.

    Jake Dotchin was +1 with 5 penalty minutes, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 15:47.

    Matthew Peca had 1 goal, 2 assists and was a gaudy +4 with 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 17:29. He was also 43% on 23 draws.

    Lightning look weary in first game out of the All Star break.

    TB-1
    WPG-3

    Louis Domingue allowed 3 goals on 37 shots for the loss. He did his job tonight and gave his team a chance. The Lightning have to score more than one goal in support of their backup. Just have to.

    First Period
    19:31 TB Peca (1), (Point, Dotchin)

    Second Period
    3:30 WPG Laine (23), (Wheeler, Byfuglien)(PP)
    8:35 WPG Connor (16), (Wheeler, Myers)

    Third Period
    14:35 WPG Little (11), (Perreault, Ehlers)

    Matthew Peca was the game's third star.

    Pretty evenly played First Period with the Lightning maybe getting a shade better scoring chances and getting the late 1-0 lead. However, a 5-on-3 goal for Winnipeg seemed to completely chance the complexion of the game. Winnipeg controlled the balance of the remainder of the game and never really looked back, eventually outshooting Tampa Bay 37-24 in total. Fatigue may have been a component of this, coming off the break and having to fly all the way to Winnipeg, so I'm not ready to sound any alarm bells over this outcome.

    The biggest silver lining was, of course, the early return of Victor Hedman to the lineup in 25:00 of action. Knees must be made of rubber bands.

    Tampa Bay finishes their first unsuccessful 10-game segment of the year with just 10 points over those 10 games. They subtract 2 from their cache of insurance points and now have 11 insurance points going into the final three segments of the campaign.

    Jake Dotchin had a helper, 2 shots, and 1 blocked shot in 18:04.

    Peca had a ruthless finish in tight for his goal and was +1 with 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 13:10. He was also 67% on 12 draws against a very good Jets team in the faceoff circles and got some PK time at a key juncture in the Third Period.

    Katchouk assisted on the game-winning 3rd period goal by Mac Hollowell (2018 draft eligible), as the Soo clipped the Colts at home. Tim Gettinger (NYR, 2016 5th round pick) led the way for the Greyhounds with a power play goal and an assist. Dmitry Solokov (MIN, 2016 7th round pick) paced Barrie, leading a 3rd period rally to knot the score at 3-3, with two goals and an assist on a goal by top prospect Andrei Svechnikov (2018 draft eligible).

    Niagra Ice Dogs 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 2 (Saturday)

    Rough night for Lipanov and the Wolves as Sudbury allowed six goals in back-to-back contests. The Ice Dogs got goals from six different players and netminder Colton Incze (undrafted) stopped 29 Sudbury shots. Right-handed rearguard Peter Stratis (2018 draft eligible) had a goal and an assist for the Wolves in a losing effort

    Kelowna Rockets 2 @ Red Deer Rebels 3 (OT) (Saturday)

    ‘15-‘16 Totals: 71 GP, 6-51-57, +39, 41 PIM

    Cale Foote set up Kole Lind (VAN, 2017 2nd round pick) for the game-tying goal with 33 seconds left in regulation, but Kristian Reichel (2018 draft eligible), son of ex-NHL’er Robert Reichel, netted the OT game-winner for the hometown Rebels.

    Regina Pats 1 @ Swift Current Broncos 3 (Saturday)
    D Libor Hajek, REG: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season Totals (REG): 6 GP, 2-3-5, -4, 2 PIM

    ’16-‘17 Totals: 65 GP: 4-22-26, -17, 81 PIM

    Hajek scored the lone Pats goal, a power play marker to open the scoring in the 1st period. It was Hajek’s 10th goal of the season and his 30th point in less than 40 games. Hajek is now 2-3-5 in six games since being traded to Regina and is really looking like that blueliner Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray touted when Tampa Bay traded Anthony DeAngelo to Arizona at the 2016 NHL Draft for the 2nd round pick. It’s been quite the breakout year for the Czech defenseman. Former Blues prospect and now Flames free agent signee Glenn Gawdin led the way for the victorious Broncos scoring twice for Swift Current, his 38th and 39th of the season, including the game-winning power play goal in the 3rd period. Speaking of breakout seasons, Gawdin sits either #3, #4, or #5 in the WHL in points, goals, assists, power play goals, and power assists, and clocks in #2 in the WHL in plus-minus at +41.
