Season Totals: 32 GP, 19-21-40, +20, 22 PIM

Season Totals: 9 GP, 5-3-1-0, 2.83 GAA, .921 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Sarnia outshot Erie 12-3 in the third period while the Otters were clutching to their 3-2 lead. Janus shut the door, unofficially earning his first First Star of the season. If Janus had enough games to qualify, his save percentage would rank sixth in the league.

WHL

Regina Pats 1 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 5
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-1-1, -1, 4 PIM (hooking, slashing)
Season Totals: 29 GP, 13-14-26, -10, 56 PIM

Ashton took a hooking penalty in the first minute of his first game back in Lethbridge. The last place Hurricanes easily took care of the Pats, outshooting them 40-16 (30-7 after two periods). This was Regina’s first game without Canadian national team stars Jordan Eberle and Colton Teubert, who are at the WJC camp. With the win, Lethbridge pulled into a second-last place tie with Edmonton in the Eastern Conference. Regina fell to last in the East Division, but are in eighth in the Eastern Conference.

CHL Game Night: 12-11-09

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 3 @ Halifax Mooseheads 2
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 30 GP, 2-22-24, +7, 32 PIM

OHL

Belleville Bulls 2 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 5
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, E, 5 PIM (elbowing, game misconduct)
Season Totals: 29 GP, 10-8-18, -1, 31 PIM
With Bulls: 16 GP, 8-7-15, +1, 11 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

DeCoste made his first return to the Soo after being traded from the Greyhounds earlier this year. It wasn’t the return he was hoping for as he was thrown out midway through the second period for elbowing an unsuspecting Tomas Rachunek in the head. Rachunek left the ice with a cut on his head and an apparent shoulder injury. SSM scored on the ensuing power play. Like it did when he was traded from Brampton to the Soo last year, DeCoste’s game has taken off since being traded. Up until Friday night he was producing at a point-per-game clip for the Bulls. He was named the team's Most Improved Player by the Belleville paper this week.

Barrie Colts vs. Sudbury Wolves - postponed
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR
Season Totals: 31 GP, 18-21-39, +18, 22 PIM

With Sudbury: 6 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 2 PIM
With Ottawa: 21 GP, 3-7-10, +5, 6 PIM

This game was postponed due to poor travel conditions.

Erie Otters 3 @ Plymouth Whalers 6
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Did not play.
Season Totals: 8 GP, 4-3-1-0, 2.94 GAA, .919 sv%
With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Janus started Thursday night and is working his way back from a lower body injury, so he got the night off in Michigan.

Windsor Spitfires 3 @ Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 2 (SO)
C Richard Panik, WSR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 32 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

Panik scored for the second straight game but failed to convert his shootout attempt - but the Spits still won. Windsor hasn’t been defeated in regulation or overtime since a 6-5 loss to Sarnia on October 11 (21-0-0-3).

Oshawa Generals 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.
Season Totals: 24 GP, 11-9-2-1, 3.25 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

WHL

Regina Pats 2 @ Medicine Hat Tigers 7
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -9, 52 PIM
With Regina: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

Ashton made his debut for Regina wearing No.25 and starting the game on a line next to super-prospect Jordan Eberle (Oilers 1/2008) and Matt Strueby (undrafted). The line produced one goal in the game, an unassisted marker by Eberle. The Pats' Eberle and Colton Teubert will not play again for Regina in 2009 as they leave to attend Canada's WJC camp. Both are locks to make the club. Ashton will not wait long to face his former club as he and the remaining Pats will take on Lethbridge Saturday night.

C Richard Panik, WSR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 31 GP, 8-9-17, +14, 19 PIM

Welcome back, Mr. Janus (pictured). The Slovakia native returned from missing several games due to injury to reportedly put on a show in a loss to the CHL’s top ranked team, Windsor. Fellow Lightning prospect Richard Panik beat Janus early in the second period for what turned out to be the game winner for the Spits. It has been 23 games since Windsor lost in regulation.

Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 4 @ Oshawa Generals 5 (OT)

Season Totals: 24 GP, 11-9-2-1, 3.25 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

Oshawa scored with just over a minute left in the game to tie it, then won it on Calvin de Haan’s power play goal in overtime. De Haan was a first round pick (12th overall) of the Islanders at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He has 19 points (5 goals) in 26 games this season for Oshawa. Zador has won four straight starts and has not lost in regulation in seven games.

Barrie Colts 6 @ Niagara IceDogs 1
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 30 GP, 18-20-38, +17, 22 PIM

Hutchings scored his fourth shorthanded goal in the last three games, extending his goal-scoring streak to seven games and has point streak to eight. He has eight points in his last three games and likely has a Player of the Week award in his immediate future. Barrie is on a 17 game win streak.

Sarnia Sting 2 @ Erie Otters 3 (SO)
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 served as the backup to Ramis Sadikov (2010 draft) as he continues to battle injuries. Shane Owen, Erie’s third goaltender, was let go recently upon Janus’ (re)arrival to the club from AHL Norfolk. Owen, 19, passed through OHL waivers unclaimed and has since signed with the QMJHL’s Moncton Wildcats, home of Lightning prospect Mark Barberio. Owen went 3-6-2, 4.31, .880 for Erie in Janus’ absence.

Windsor Spitfires 9 @ Peterborough Petes 5
C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-1-1, E, 7 PIM (roughing, fighting)
Season Totals: 29 GP, 7-9-16, +13, 19 PIM

Panik (pictured) tangled with Petes defenseman Chris Buonomo (2010) in his first OHL fight. Panik got in several rights before dropping him with a left (watch it here). Windsor now has at least a point in 21 straight games. At 25-3-0-3 they remain on a collision course with Barrie (25-4-0-1) for the OHL championship this spring. They play each other for the first time in the regular season on January 14.

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: 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)

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.
