No games to report, but Iâ€™m looking forward to the Tri-City (Fadden) vs. Spokane (Tokarski) match-up on Saturday night. The game should be available to watch on WHL WebTV for $6.95. (livestream.whl.ca)
Game stars galore ... and unfortunately, slumps, too.

Moncton is first overall in the league at 15-0-2-0, setting a record earning points in the first 17 games of the season. The 1972-73 Quebec Remparts held the previous league record for best start to a season by earning points in the first 16 games.

Of Note: Both Dana Tyrell and Dustin Tokarski were named to Team WHL for the upcoming ADT Canada-Russia Challenge. They are the only two Lightning prospects named to the WHL, OHL, or QMJHL teams as Mark Barberio was passed over for the Q's squad.

D Luke Witkowski, FAR: 1-0-1,+1, 19 PIM (interference, checking from behind, fighting, 10 min misconduct), 4 SOG

Witkowskiâ€™s first goal of the year was the game winner for Fargo in their home debut.
Firsts for Jung, Witkowski ... another goal for Tyrell ... Barberio left off the list
