Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Drummondville Voltigeurs 0 @ Sherbrooke Phoenix 4

C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM, 9/20 FO, 3 Hits, *Third Star*
With Sherbrooke: 1 GP, 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM

2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Darcy (pictured) made his Sherbrooke debut after being traded by Cape Breton during the week. Darcy, who was dropped off the Eagles roster after a slow start, was acquired to fill an overage slot. The Phoenix paid a draft pick to get him. Hopefully the fresh start ignites Darcy’s game, though he does have six points in his last three games (all assists).

The visiting Indy Fuel with former Bolt prospect Kirill Gotovets failed in a 3rd period two-goal rally against the Everblades in Estero. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev assisted on what would be Mitch Wahl's 2nd period game winning marker. Allen York notched his 11th victory in light duty, seeing only 17 Indy shots. Florida owns the ECHLs best win percentage, sporting a gaudy 0.825 having won 4 straight and 9 of their 10 games and owning a +28 goal differential. The Blades and Fuel rematch Saturday night.

Quad City Mallards 3 at Wichita Thunder 1

F Danick Gauthier, WIC: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
Season totals (ECHL): 23 GP, 12-11-23, -2, 31 PIM, 79 SOG
Season totals (AHL): 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

D Daniel Milan, WIC: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 23 GP, 0-5-5, -5, 53 PIM, 26 SOG

After an extended road trip, the Thunder returned home for a tilt against the Quad City. Wichita Wichita feels like they have been in a funk since that 180+ PIM brawl in Elmira, and Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier is struggling defensively. On the ice for all three Mallard goals, Gauthier is mired in a mini-funk of his own after racking up 15 PIMs of his own in that raucous Jackals game. The Mallards leap-frogged the Thunder in the Central Division with Friday's win as Wichita rides a 3-game losing streak and only 4 wins in their last 10. No time to hang your head, Wichita takes on Rapid City Saturday night.

Crunch Down Bears for Fifth-Straight Win


By Jeremy Houghtaling

After allowing the first goal late in the opening frame, the Syracuse Crunch fired back.

Mike Angelidis tied the score to start the annual teddy bear toss early in the second, Syracuse netted three goals in the third period, and Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 29 saves, as the Crunch beat the Hershey Bears, 4-1, to win their fifth straight at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

For Syracuse head coach Rob Zettler, the big third period came down to the team creating traffic in front of Hershey netminder Philipp Grubauer.

"The bottom line was I thought we had a lot of chances -- especially in the first and second period -- but I thought (Grubauer) saw everything," Zettler said. "That goal, that power play goal, Joel Vermin was right in front of him, it went off of him and he didn't see it."
