Seattle Thunderbirds 3 @ Tri-City Americans 1
G Riku Helenius, SEA: Did not play
Lethbridge Hurricanes 8 @ Kamloops Blazers 1
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 1-0-1, E, 17 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct, fighting major-game misconduct), *Second Star*
The line of Zach Boychuck, Fadden, and Colton Sceviour (Dallas 4th round 2007) combined for 7 points and 39 PIM as they all received fighting majors in a brawl that took place with just over a minute left in the one-sided game. The three took all three star awards for the game, with Boychuck being the first star for his 2+1.
Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster and Norfolk General Manager Claude Loiselle were scheduled to be in Edmonton last night for the Oil Kings-Medicine Hat Tigers game.
The Tigers won the game 7-1. Notable draft eligible players (CSS Midterm rankings)include:
Following last Wednesday night's ECHL All-Star game in Stockton, CA, the Mississippi Sea Wolves had the unenviable task of starting the second half of the season with a three-in-three on the road against the ECHL's best team - the Texas Wildcatters. And just like that, all that momentum of a 10-2 January run to the All-Star game vanishes as the Wolves go 0-3 in Beaumont. Ryan Munce gave up 10 goals in two games, bringing the young goalie back to earth after a other-worldly run in 8 games prior to the All-Star event. Brandon Elliott played this weekend for the first time since early December.
No.1 Michigan 2 @ No.6 Michigan State 2 (OT)
D Kevin Quick, UM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 shots on goal
Quick took a hard elbow to the head in the first period, drawing a penalty. The freshman maintained a regular shift throughout this highly competitive game, but got caught out of position on a couple of occasions resulting in MSU scoring chances and was picked from behind trying to carry the puck out of his zone in overtime that eventually resulted in a MSU power play. Michigan was only able to tie this game thanks to a penalty in front of the MSU keeper that wasn't called and a Spartan defenseman who tried to bat the airborne puck with his glove away from the net but instead knocked it behind his goalie for an own-goal. Ironically, MSU beat UM the night before on an own-goal.
Vermont 2 @ No.14 Massachusetts 2 (OT)
D John Wessbecker, UMASS: Did not play (undisclosed injury)
Saturday night's highlights:
- Cunti finding his groove
- Ward getting offensive
- Jung does his part, but Rockets fall
