Season Totals: 23 GP, 5-5-10, +1, 22 PIM
With Bulls: 10 GP, 3-4-7, +3, 2 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Defenseman Shawn Lalonde (Blackhawks 3/2008) scored the game winner late in the third period. DeCoste’s goal briefly gave the Bulls a 2-1 lead early in the third.

Barrie Colts 5 @ Mississauga-St. Michael’s Majors 2
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (diving)
Season Totals: 26 GP, 13-16-29, +11, 16 PIM

Hutchings has scored in three straight games and has points in his last four. Barrie is on a 14-0-0-1 streak.

Erie Otters 5 @ Guelph Storm 4 (OT)
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Did not play.
Season Totals: 7 GP, 4-2-1-0, 2.93 GAA, .915 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Janus, who reportedly has been battling “bumps and bruises” since returning to the OHL from Norfolk, did not make the trip to Guelph. He left the Otters’ previous game in the third period with an apparent leg injury.

Peterborough Petes 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 3 (SO)
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, *Third Star*
Season Totals: 27 GP, 7-8-15, +13, 8 PIM

Panik (pictured), who hit a post during the game, did not participate in the shootout. This was his second Third Star of the season. Windsor, the top-ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League, has at least a point in 19 straight games (17-0-0-2).

Owen Sound Attack 4 @ Sudbury Wolves 2
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (interference)
Season Totals: 22 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 8 PIM
With Sudbury: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +7, 6 PIM

Sointu made his debut for Sudbury after coming over in a trade from Ottawa earlier in the week. The CHL import is wearing No.28 with the Wolves, with whom he is expected to get more ice time.

Oshawa Generals 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
G Michael Zador, OSH: No decision, 25 saves on 28 shots (pulled briefly)
Season Totals: 19 GP, 7-10-2-0, 3.48 GAA, .893 sv%, 1 SO

Zador was pulled briefly in the second period, but was re-inserted into the lineup when his backup gave up three goals on 11 shots.

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 3 (SO)
RW Carter Ashton, LET: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 24 GP, 13-12-25, -6, 46 PIM

The Hurricanes held a 2-0 lead in this game before watching that lead disappear. Ashton, Lethbridge’s fourth shooter, had his shootout attempt saved.

CHL Game Night: 11-22-09

QMJHL

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 3 @ Moncton Wildcats 2
D Mark Barberio, Q: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season Totals: 22 GP, 2-13-15, +4, 22 PIM

Moncton put themselves in a 3-0 hole and could never recover. Former Lightning prospect Michael Ward finished his season with Cape Breton last season after a trade from Lewiston. He was not offered a contract by Tampa Bay, but signed with Vancouver. The Canucks re-assigned him to Cape Breton, where as a co-captain he has 15 assists (0 goals) in 17 games so far this year. He had 17 points in 30 games with the Eagles after the trade last year; 17 in 35 with Lewiston.

OHL

Belleville Bulls 0 @ Brampton Battalion 3
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (tripping)

With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

DeCoste earned his first two penalty minutes as a Bull.

Season Totals: 6 GP, 3-2-1-0, 3.00 GAA, .915 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Erie is on a 0-2-2-0 streak. Janus got the night off.

Guelph Storm 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 11
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 25 GP, 6-8-14, +11, 8 PIM

This is confusing. Panik was coming off a two goal game, his team scored 11, had six even strength goals, and somehow Panik goes without a point and has a team-worst minus-two rating.

Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Ottawa 67’s 6
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: Did not play.
Season Totals: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +7, 6 PIM

Ottawa is on a 5-0-1 streak and are now at .500 on the year.

G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 18 GP, 7-9-2-0, 3.45 GAA, .893 sv%, 1 SO

RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 20 GP, 4-4-8, +2, 20 PIM
With Bulls: 7 GP, 2-3-5, +4, 0 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

DeCoste scored the game’s insurance marker late in the third.

Saginaw Spirit 2 @ Barrie Colts 4
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (roughing)
Season Totals: 24 GP, 11-14-25, +8, 12 PIM

Barrie set a team record with their 11th straight win. Like DeCoste, Hutchings (pictured) scored the game’s insurance marker late in the third. Hutchings has points in two straight games.

Erie Otters 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 3
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Loss, 32 saves on 34 shots, *Third Star*
Season Totals: 6 GP, 3-2-1-0, 3.00 GAA, .915 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Janus lost his third in a row (one in OT), but earned Third Star for the game. The Attack hit an empty net to give the game its final score.

CHL Game Night: 11-20-09

Panik breaks out of his slump ... overtime games galore ... tough night for goalies.

CHL Game Night: 11-13-09

Zador vs. Janus ... Ashton extends streak ... Sointu his first multi-point game ... and more.

OHL

Oshawa Generals 2 @ Belleville Bulls 1 (SO)
G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, 23 saves on 24 shots
Season Totals: 15 GP, 7-7-1-0, 3.48 GAA, .893 sv%, 1 SO
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: Did not play.
Season Totals: 16 GP, 3-3-6, +1, 20 PIM
With Bulls: 3 GP, 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Zador broke a personal seven game losing streak, though he was named a game star in his last appearance. Hopefully this sparks him on another win streak. The lone goal against him was kind of a fluke as he had the puck covered in a goal-mouth scramble, but no whistle was blown. He raised his blocker off the ice to see if the puck was under it, which it was, and a Bull poked it home. It looked like the ref should have blown the whistle (see Bulls highlights below). Zador stopped four of five shooters to secure the shootout win. No word yet why DeCoste missed the game.

Saginaw Spirit 2 @ Erie Otters 5
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Win, 27 saves on 29 shots, 2 PIM (delay of game)
Season Totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 2.50 GAA, .909 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Janus moved to 2-0 since his return to the OHL from AHL Norfolk. Erie scored four times in the third period to get the win.

CHL Game Night: 11/6/2009

All six Lightning OHL prospects in action Friday, including ex-Norfolk Admiral Jaroslav Janus, who made his season debut for Erie.

OHL

Belleville Bulls 2 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 5

Admirals Release Janus

(Norfolk Admirals press release) The Norfolk Admirals have released goaltender Jaroslav Janus from his Professional Tryout Contract (PTO). Janus will report to the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League.

Janus, a 5-foot-11, 192-pound goaltender from Presov, Slovakia, appeared in his first two professional games with the Admirals, recording an impressive 1.52 goals-against average and .939 save percentage with an 0-2-0 record. He made his pro debut on October 14 at Albany, stopping 27 of 29 shots in a 3-1 setback. The Admirals NHL parent club, the Tampa Bay Lightning, drafted Janus in the sixth round (162nd overall) of last summer’s NHL Entry Draft.

Janus completed his second OHL season with Erie in 2008-09, posting a 25-20-3 record with a 3.24 goals-against average in 49 games. He led the Otters in games played, wins, shutouts with three and save percentage at .908. He also played in five playoff games with Erie, posting a shutout and a 1-4-0 record.

Janus has played in 97 career OHL games, posting a 38-49-5 record with a 3.81 goals-against average.

Note: Janus is expected to join the Otters Thursday and play Friday vs. Niagara.

Report: Norfolk to Return Janus to OHL

A report on the Erie Times-News' web site states the AHL's Norfolk Admirals will return goaltender Jaroslav Janus to the OHL's Erie Otters this week.

The newspaper received confirmation of the expected transaction from Janus' agent, Craig Oster of Newport Sports Management Inc. in Mississauga, Ontario.

The report also states the Lightning are interested in signing Janus after this season.

Janus, a 2009 sixth round pick of the Lightning, began the season with Norfolk on a 25-game professional tryout contract. He has played in two of Norfolk's 10 games, accumulating a 0-2-0 record, a 1.52 goals-against average (GAA) and a .939 save percentage. Last year he posted a 25-20-4 record with Erie, along with a 3.24 GAA and a .908 save percentage. The Otters have struggled defensively this year so far, and Janus will be a welcomed re-addition.

Janus' expected departure from Norfolk would leave the club with Dustin Tokarski and Riku Helenius in net.(Norfolk Admirals photo)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
SYR Pelletier, (3) (Fritsche, MacKenzie), 19:27 (EN)

Janus was named the game's second star. Norfolk outshot Syracuse 32-21 in the game. There's too much veteran talent in Norfolk to keep struggling offensively like this.
