C Cedric Paquette, BLB: 0-2-2, +2, 2 PIM, 6 SOG, 1 Hit
Season totals: 35 GP, 15-31-46, +18, 71 PIM

One game after having his point streak snapped at 10 games, Cedric Paquette had two assists in a 6-5 shootout loss to visiting Gatineau. The Olympiques managed just nine shots through regulation to Blainville’s 40, but scored on five of them. Gatineau outshot the Armada 5-0 in overtime and won the shootout, 1-0. Paquette is now within two points of his career high for points in a season, which was 48, set last year in 63 games. While his goal pace is behind last year’s (31 in 63 games), his assist numbers are blowing away last years totals (31-17).

Season totals: 33 GP, 2-11-13, +4, 37 PIM

Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin (pictured) had a career-high three assists in one game as the Attack earned two points by beating visiting Erie, 6-1. This was Dotchin’s second 3-point game in his career – he had a goal and two assists against Peterborough last February. He now has 13 points in 33 games and is on pace to set a new career high for goals, assists, and points in a season (3-16-19 in 2011-12).

Peterborough Petes 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2

D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 35 GP, 6-20-26, -23, 28 PIM

Slater Koekkoek scored his sixth goal of the season late in the third on the power play to put the game away for Peterborough, who beat Kingston on the road, 5-2. Koekkoek, who hit the post minutes before he scored, slid into the high slot from the right point and one-timed a pass from Steven Trojanovic (undrafted) through Kingston goalie Mike Morrison (undrafted), who played for the Petes last year. The puck trickled over the line before being swept back into play, but the referee ruled it a goal. The OHL offices in Toronto took more than eight minutes to confirm it was a goal.

Note: Prospects Nikita Kucherov (Rouyn-Noranda, QMJHL), Artem Sergeev (Val-d'Or, QMJHL), and Tanner Richard (Guelph, OHL) are participating in the 2013 World Junior Championships and are therefore not with their respective club teams.

Koekkoek, who has points in three of his last four games, is just five points behind center Francis Menard (undrafted) for the team lead in points. Koekkoek’s 25 points are seventh in the league for defensemen. He leads Peterborough in assists with 20.

Nikita Kucherov (pictured – Abitibi Express photo) was moved onto a line with fellow import Sven Andrighetto (undrafted) and center Marcus Power (undrafted) and the three combined for 12 points in the Huskies 6-4 win over the visiting Foreurs. Kucherov’s final goal was scored into an empty net. Fellow Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev did not play. It is thought he is preparing for Russia’s World Junior camp, but nothing has been confirmed. Kucherov is also on the camp roster and is obviously still playing. And playing well.

Brampton held a 2-0 lead on the highly favored Knights halfway through the game, but gave up four unanswered goals in the next 20 minutes of game action. Brampton cut the lead to 4-3 late in the game, but couldn’t get a game-tying goal. Dylan Blujus (pictured) broke a personal 5-game scoreless streak with two assists. He is on pace to finish just shy of his career high in points of 34, set last year.

Kingston Frontenacs 2 @ Peterborough Petes 3 (OT)

D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM
Season totals: 30 GP, 4-18-22, -22, 24 PIM

In a game that featured 96 total shots, the last one went in off a Peterborough stick to give the Petes a 3-2 overtime win. Slater Koekkoek was the only Pete on the ice to not figure in on the scoring for the game-winning goal, but it’s hard to see him caring about something as trivial as that. With the win, the Petes climbed out of the cellar above Ottawa in the East Division. The 67’s lost to Niagara on Thursday, 9-0.

Drummondville scored on the power play in overtime after Paquette’s 13th goal of the season tied the game with just over six minutes left in the third period. Paquette scored once in each period of regulation. He has a 4-game point streak and has registered at least a point in 10 of his last 12 games.

Vincent Dunn (2014) had a hat trick for Val-d’Or, who spotted Shawinigan two goals before scoring their six. Sergeev’s streak is tied for the third-longest current streak in the QMJHL.

Season totals: 27 GP, 2-6-8, +2, 29 PIM

After starting the season with a point in just four of his first 23 games, Jake Dotchin has hit the scoresheet in three of his last four contests. Solid in his own end of the ice, if Dotchin is able to develop his offensive game at this level, look out.
