NCAA Exhibition 10/8: Quick Makes Michigan Debut

The NCAA exhibition season got underway this past weekend with two Lightning prospects in action.

Western Ontario 1 @ No.10 Michigan 6
D Kevin Quick, MICH: 0-0-0, +2, 2 SOG

Quick, a freshman, made his Michigan debut for the Wolverines and was involved in some scoring chances but did not register a point in the exhibition game. According to MGoBlue.com, Quick jumped into a play and took a drop pass from Michigan captain and Phoenix Coyote draft pick Kevin Porter, firing a one-timer blocker side on the UWO goaltender Brad Topping, who got a piece of the shot. Michigan held their Blue vs. White game on Saturday. Quick, who is wearing No.27, did not register a point and was even with a shot on goal in the intrasquad game for Team White, who lost 6-3.

Trois-Rivieres 0 @ U-Mass 6
D John Wessbecker, UMASS: 0-0-0, 0 PIM, +1

The University of Massachusetts opened their 2007-2008 season with an exhibition win over Trois-Rivieres. Wessbecker, a junior and former seventh round pick, is coming off a sophomore year in which he registered one point on a goal.

Monday's Superleague Scores

Vasily Koshechkin had the day off for a rare Kazan win, a 4-2 victory over Tver. Dimitri Kazionov was scoreless in the match.

Albert Vishnyakov did not play in Spartak's 2-1 overtime loss to Khimik.

Anton But had 2 penalty minutes in St. Petersburg's 2-1 win over Omsk. Evgeny Artyukhin was scoreless in the match.

Lascek Update

The Lightning has confirmed Stanislav Lascek did indeed suffer an injury during Norfolk's training camp. Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster said the injury was not sustained on the ice and no specifics were offered on the injury's whereabouts or cause.

Lascek struggled in Traverse City in early September and also failed to make a strong impression in his brief time in Norfolk camp before this latest injury. As a result, Feaster stated Lascek will be assigned to ECHL Mississippi when he is cleared to play.

A former QMJHL scoring star, Lascek split his rookie pro season last year between ECHL Johnstown (25 GP, 12-15-27) and AHL Springfield (29 GP, 2-2-4). He had 135 points in 64 games for Chicoutimi in his final year of junior.

Lascek has two years remaining on his entry level contract, including this season.

Correction

The October 6th Elitserien game in which Johan Harju scored a pair of goals was incorrectly reported as being a 6-4 Lulea loss. In actuality, Lulea won the match 6-4 over Farjestads. We regret the error.
