CHL Game Night 11/13: Lightning Prospects Seeing Stars as Fadden Faces Helenius

WHL
Seattle Thunderbirds 2 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 3
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, *First Star*
G Riku Helenius, SEA: Loss, 36 saves on 39 shots, *Third Star*

Both Lightning prospects were named stars of the game as Mitch Fadden’s Hurricanes squeaked by Riku Helenius’ Thunderbirds 3-2. All three Lethbridge goals, including Fadden's eleventh of the season, came on the power play. Helenius has lost five straight appearances, but twice in that time he was named a star of the game. He has at least 30 saves in 4 of those 5 games. Seattle managed only 18 shots against Lethbridge.

Prince George Cougars 1 @ Spokane Chiefs 4
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

Prince George lost their fifth in a row as Dana Tyrell’s modest three game point streak came to an end. The Chiefs are 12-1-0-1 in their last 14 games.

QMJHL
Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 3
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG

Jonathan Bernier stopped 31 shots for Lewiston to improve his record since leaving the L.A. Kings to 4-3-0.

Tuesday's Elitserien Score

Andreas Holmqvist had a goal and a power play assist in Frolunda's 5-4 win over Djurgardens. Holmqvist now has 2 goals and 10 points in 18 games this season with 4 penalty minutes and a +2 rating.

Norfolk Gets Three

Damian Cristodero of the St. Pete Times reports Mathieu Darche and Craig MacDonald both cleared waivers today and have been assigned to Norfolk. Both should bring instant offense to a club struggling to score goals and lacking true centers. Also, Matt Smaby was assigned to the Admirals.

The Lightning is now down to just 20 players, which reportedly was their goal once everyone was healthy. Doug Janik has won the No.6 defenseman job outright.

MacDonald and Darche Waived by Lightning

TSN.ca is reporting that Tampa Bay Lightning forwards Craig MacDonald and Mathieu Darche were placed on waivers Monday. This seems to be the result of the return of Ryan Craig and Andreas Karlsson to the Lightning lineup following pre-season injuries to both players.

If both players clear waivers, this could be a big boon to the Norfolk Admiral offense.

Update: The St. Pete Times is reporting Matt Smaby will likely be sent down today.
