    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Shawinigan Cataractes 0 @ Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 4

    W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 6 SOG, 0 Hits, *Third Star*
    Season totals: 7 GP, 4-8-12, +1, 2 PIM
    With R-N: 1 GP, 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM
    With Quebec: 6 GP, 3-7-10, -1, 2 PIM

    Nikita Kucherov (pictured – RN Huskies photo) made his debut for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies after being traded on Wednesday by Quebec. Kucherov had a goal and an assist to extend his point streak to seven games. He played on the Huskies’ second line with Maxime St-Cyr (undrafted) and Mathieu Lemay (2013). St-Cyr has 14 goals (14-6-20) in 23 games this year; Lemay has six (6-10-16). After averaging two shots per game for Quebec, Kucherov tied for the team lead with six shots on goal on Friday night. Alexandre Belanger (2013) had a 25-save shutout for Rouyn-Noranda.

    Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 3 @ Gatineau Olympiques 0

    C Cedric Paquette, BLB: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season totals: 24 GP, 10-17-27, +8, 50 PIM

    Cedric Paquette has been making news lately for the right reasons. Earlier this year he was suspended by the team for one game for taking an ill-advised retaliation penalty late in a game that cost the Armada a win. He was stripped of his alternate captain’s A and told to control his emotions. He has responded nicely, reportedly, and told the local papers that he is still a leader on the club without a letter. On Friday, he had an assist in Etienne Marcoux’s 16-save shutout of the Olympiques.

    Acadie-Bathurst Titan 5 @ Val-d’Or Foreurs 3

    D Artem Sergeev, VDO: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 5 Hits
    Season totals: 25 GP, 5-13-18, +5, 16 PIM

    Artem Sergeev’s point streak increased to four games with an assist Friday night in a home loss to the Titan. He led the team in hits with five.

    D Dylan Blujus, BRAM: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 26 GP, 2-10-12, -8, 20 PIM

    Kristoff Kontos, son of Lightning record-holder Chris Kontos, had a goal and an assist and was named first star as the Steelheads topped the Battalion, 5-2. Brampton was coming off a big road win over Barrie on Thursday night. Chris Kontos holds the record for most goals in a game by a Lightning player with four, set in the franchise’s inaugural game against Chicago, won 7-4 by the Bolts. Kristoff Kontos went undrafted this past summer. He has five goals and 15 points in 25 games this year for Mississauga.

    Erie Otters 2 @ Guelph Storm 3

    C/W Tanner Richard, GUE: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 23 GP, 2-28-30, +7, 54 PIM

    Tanner Richard was on the ice for both of Erie’s goals, but Guelph pulled off a comeback win at home on Friday night, 3-2. Scott Kosmachuk (Jets) had two goals for the Storm.

    Peterborough Petes 0 @ London Knights 2

    D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM
    Season totals: 24 GP, 3-15-18, -15, 20 PIM

    Peterborough kept it close, but lost to London at the Labatt’s Center, 2-0. Illinois-native Alex Broadhurst (Blackhawks) scored both goals for London.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    It was a play Mark Barberio had done many times before, but it was an unfamiliar result.

    The Syracuse Crunch defenseman accepted the reverse pass from his parter, Jared Nightingale, and looked to make a pass to Alex Killorn in front of his team's net. Instead of its intended target, the puck appeared to deflect off goaltender Dustin Tokarski's stick, and found its way into the back of the Crunch net.

    The fluke goal 1:11 into the final frame proved to be the difference, as Syracuse snapped a three-game winning streak with a 2-1 loss to the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    Ravensburg 4 vs. Fischtown 5 (OT)

    Adam Hall, Ravensburg, 1-0-1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 10 GP, 6-2-8, 29 PIM

    Adam Hall scored for the third straight game but Ravensburg blew a four-goal third period lead Friday night before eventually dropping to Fischtown, now tied for the league lead in the standings, in the shootout. Hall's goal came nearly midway through the second and gave the Tower Stars a 2-0 lead they would build on before the visiting Penguins, which outshot the home club 39-35 for the match, would battle back. Ravensburg (7-7-2-2, 27 PTS) is in action again Sunday when the Tower Stars will face the Rosenheim Star Bulls (9-5-2-2, 33 PTS).

    Orlando Solar Bears 0 @ Gwinnett Gladiators 1

    F B.J. Crombeen, ORL: Did not play
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    Hannu Toivonen stopped 25 of 26 for Orlando but Mike Lee was perfect in net with 22 saves for Gwinnett, allowing the Gladiators to edge past the Solar Bears Thanksgiving night. Gwinnett defenseman Cody Brookwell had the game's lone goal, which he scored early in the first period when he found a shooting lane and fired a shot that made it through traffic and into the net. Locked-out Lightning forward B.J. Crombeen, who signed with Orlando last week, hasn't played since Sunday's home game against Kalamazoo. Orlando (8-7-3, 19 PTS) and league powerhouse Gwinnett (13-4-1, 27 PTS), which currently enjoys a four-point lead at the top of the South division, play the tail end of a back-to-back Friday night.

    UPDATE: Crombeen was released from his tryout contract with the Solar Bears.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 3 vs. Farjestads 4 (OT)

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, -1, 4 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 25 GP, 9-5-14, +3, 31 PIM

    Farjestads jumped out to a 2-0 lead midway through the first period and led until Johan Harju scored near the midpoint of the third period to send the game to overtime. There, in the final minute, Marcus Paulsson tapped in a loose rebound after a blast from the right circle to win the game for Farjestads, which really came on strong with seven shots in the extra session. Brynas earned a point, but it was the club's fourth consecutive loss. Harju's goal was a thing of beauty; on the play, he took a pass to his backhand while moving behind the net and, with a defender leaning on his back, angled the puck on his forehand towards the top of the crease before stopping and spinning to his backhand suddenly, shedding the defender, and then leisurely lifting a backhander up and over down-and-out Farjestads netminder Alexander Salak and into the wide-open net. Brynas (9-7-3-6, 39 PTS) next travels to face Lulea (11-6-5-2, 45 PTS), which it has beaten each of the last five games Lulea has been the host, on Saturday.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 2 vs. TPS 1 (OT)

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, W, 0.92 GAA, 46/47 (.979 SV%)
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-4-1, 0 SO, 3.36 GAA, 227/251 (.904 SV%)

    After two close losses in which he played very well, especially in last night's defeat to the Blues, Anders Lindback delivered a sensational performance Thursday night, his best to date in SM-Liiga play, in backstopping Ilves to a shootout win over TPS. After a scoreless first period, TPS struck first midway through the second period before Michael Keranen evened the score a couple minutes later for all the the scoring both teams would manage despite numerous offensive flurries--both teams combined for a total of 140 attempted shots on goal--at both ends throughout the match. Ville Koistenen scored the only goal of the shootout when he beat TPS netminder Atte Engren, who was also superb for the visiting squad, with a backhander. Locked-out NHLers Maxime Talbot (Ilves) and Kris Russell (TPS) registered secondary assists. After two games in two nights, Ilves (4-14-3-3, 21 points) is off until next Tuesday when they will face Lukko (9-12-1-3, 32 points).
