Jones, Keller, Lascek Excel on First Full Night in CHL

On a night when the QMJHL, OHL, and WHL were all in full-swing, Lightning prospects failed to make a heavy impact on their respective scoresheets as a whole, but that’s not to say no one had a big impact. Leading the way for Lightning prospects Friday night was 2005 fourth round pick Blair Jones of the Moose Jaw Warriors who had a goal and two assists in his season debut. Also excelling were Stanislav Lascek and Justin Keller, and Vladamir Mihalik made his first North American start. Friday night’s summary:

Bartanus, Owen Sound Drop Opener in Barrie

Marek Bartanus and the Owen Sound Attack fell in their OHL season opener Thursday night 6-4 to the Barrie Colts. Bartanus did not register a point in the game, but did manage an even rating and an accumulation of six official penalty minutes, and a ten minute misconduct which doesn't count toward his penalty minute count. Bartanus was whistled for inteference, unsportsmanlike conduct, and hooking penalties in the game. The two teams accounted for 85 minutes in penalties. Thirty minor penalties were assessed by referees Chris Hodgins and Terry Hobor, 15 to each team. Bartanus's misconduct followed his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, which was likely for diving as a Colt was charged with hooking on the play.

Zapletal Back in Europe

After spending last season with Regina of the WHL, defenseman Jan Zapletal has returned to the Czech Republic to play for HC Vsetin of the Extraliga. The 2004 6th round pick had 3 goals and 5 points in 55 games last season for the Pats. He has yet to dress for any of Vsetin's games thus far. Also, goaltender Vasily Koshechkin has reassumed backup duties for Lada Togliatti of the Russian Superleague. An 8th round pick in 2002, Koshechkin played two shutout periods of relief for Togliatti in a 3-1 loss to Yaroslavl on September 17th.
