Artem Sergeev (pictured) extended his point streak to 10 games with two assists in a win over Patrick Roy’s Remparts. Quebec had three import players early in the year and ended up trading Nikita Kucherov. Tonight they had zero as Mikhail Grigorenko is preparing for Buffalo’s camp and Nick Sorensen was out of the lineup. Former Lightning camper Brandon Hynes had two goals and an assist for the Foreurs.

With Owen Sound: 38 GP, 2-12-14, +1, 39 PIM

Jake Dotchin is looking for his first point after three games with the Colts, but he did help Barrie defeat the IceDogs, 5-1, on Saturday night. Barrie is playing without their star forward, Mark Scheifele, who is readying for Winnipeg Jets camp. It’s very possible he doesn’t return to the OHL. Undrafted overager Steven Beyers had two goals and four points in his absence for Barrie.

Kokkoek had his first point in a Spitfire uniform – a third period power play assist on the game-tying goal. Andrei Khokhlachev had two goals for Winsor. Koekkoek’s teammate last week with Peterborough, Alan Quine, had a goal for Belleville and was first star.

Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov was not in the lineup as the Huskies won in overtime despite being outshot, 48-19, in the game. Swiss forward Sven Andrighetto had four assists for the Huskies. Like Kucherov, Andrighetto participated in the World Junior Championships in Russia earlier this month.

Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 2 @ Halifax Mooseheads 4

C Cedric Paquette, BLB: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 8 SOG, 2 Hits
Season totals: 40 GP, 16-35-51, +19, 77 PIM

Halifax had a 3-0 lead before the second period even began, and only a goal with five seconds remaining in the game by the Armada made the score look close. Halifax teammates Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Druin, who will fight to be the No. 1 selection in this summer’s draft, combined for just one point – an assist by Druin.

Val-d’Or Foreurs 1 @ Victoriaville Tigres 7

D Artem Sergeev, VDO: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 1 Hit
Season totals: 30 GP, 5-19-24, +10, 24 PIM

Artem Sergeev (pictured) played his first game since returning from representing the home country at the World Junior Championships in Russia and notched an assist on the Foreurs’ only goal. The point extended Sergeev's point streak to nine games. Val-d’Or registered 39 shots (21 in the third period) to Victoriaville’s 25, yet were blown out where it counted, 7-1.

Brampton Battalion 2 @ Plymouth Whalers 4

D Dylan Blujus, BRAM: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

Plymouth outscored Brampton 4-1 in the second period and hung on for a 4-2 win on Friday night. Blujus has one assist and an even rating in his last five games. Brampton’s winless streak rose to five games.

Jake Dotchin played his second game for Barrie and was minus-2 in a road loss to Guelph. He received some power play time tonight, but was on the ice when Guelph scored shorthanded. Storm forward Tanner Richard was serving a one-game suspension for slew-footing.

With Peterborough: 38 GP, 6-22-28, -26, 28 PIM

Slater Koekkoek made his Windsor debut less than 24 hours after being traded by Peterborough and finished plus-1 as the Spits beat the visiting Battalion, 3-0. He made several rushes in the game and just missed a tipping a centering pass into the net in the first period. His attempt missed high. The game was also a match-up of the top two defensemen the Lightning drafted in June and the season debut of Bruins pick Alexander Khokhlachev, who had been playing in Russia. He played for Windsor last year. Koekkoek wore No. 65; he wore 29 in Peterborough. No. 29 is open in Windsor.

Mississauga Steelheads 5 @ Barrie Colts 6 (SO)

D Jake Dotchin, BAR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

With Barrie: 1 GP, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
With Owen Sound: 38 GP, 2-12-14, +1, 39 PIM

Dotchin made his Barrie debut after being traded by Owen Sound for picks earlier in the day. He wore No. 2 for the Colts. This is the first time a drafted Lightning prospect has been with the Colts since Sheldon Keefe scored 121 points for them in 1999-2000.

Dotchin, Koekkoek on the Move

Lightning prospect defenseman Jake Dotchin was traded today from OHL Owen Sound to the Barrie Colts. The OHL trade deadline was today at noon.

Dotchin, a 2012 sixth round pick by Tampa Bay, has two goals and 14 points in 38 games this season. There was talk that Dotchin wasn't being utilized to his full extent in Owen Sound, so he may get more opportunities - especially on the power play - in Barrie. The Colts are tied with Owen Sound, ironically, for the second-most point in the league with 53. London leads with 71.

Dotchin, who was traded for two third rounders, a fourth, and a fifth, is primarily a stay-at-home defenseman though many observers think he's capable of more offensively. He recently had a stretch when he scored nine points in 12 games. The 6-3, 222-pound defenseman is scoreless in his last three games.

As was reported Wednesday night, Lightning 2012 first rounder Slater Koekkoek was traded from the Peterborough Petes to the Windsor Spitfires for Avalanche prospect Michael Clarke and two second round picks. Koekkoek was rumored to be on the trade block as the Petes are tied for last in the league in points and continue to undergo changes on and off the ice. They’ve replaced their coach and general manager already this year.

Windsor is not much better in the standings than Peterborough (seven points), but their GM, former NHLer Warren Rychel, heads a strong major junior program with the resources to put a winner on the ice. Koekkoek will be back in juniors again next year and Rychel likely had next year in mind when he made this deal.

“Anytime you can acquire a player like Slater, it's great,” Rychel said in a team release. “We needed a frontline defenseman. And he is one of the top players in the world at his position.”

He will be in the Spitfires' lineup tonight against Dylan Blujus and Brampton.

The hope for Koekkoek, who was the Petes captain, is he receives the proper discipline and development to make the jump to the AHL a little smoother in two years while returning Windsor to OHL prominence.

Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Erie Otters 4

D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 38 GP, 2-12-14, +1, 39 PIM

A late delay of game penalty by the Attack resulted in an Otter power play goal with 35 seconds left in regulation that gave Erie a 4-3 home win. Lightning prospect Jake Dotchin was scoreless in the game, but the story here is that he was still with the Attack. He was rumored to be involved in trade talks this week as the OHL trade deadline approached. Senators first round defenseman Cody Ceci was acquired by Owen Sound and had an assist in his Attack debut.

TRADE

According to multiple reports, Lightning 2012 first rounder Slater Koekkoek was traded late Wednesday night from the Peterborough Petes to the Windsor Spitfires for Avalanche prospect Michael Clark and two second round picks. Koekkoek was rumored to be on the trade block as the Petes are tied for last in the league in points and continue to undergo changes on and off the ice. They’ve replaced their coach and general manager already this year.

Windsor is not much better in the standings than Peterborough (seven points), but their GM, former NHLer Warren Rychel, heads a strong major junior program with the resources to put a winner on the ice. Koekkoek will be back in juniors again next year and Rychel likely had next year in mind when he made this deal. The hope for Koekkoek, who was the Petes captain, is he receives the proper discipline and development to make the jump to the AHL a little smoother in two years while returning Windsor to OHL prominence.
