Baie-Comeau Drakkar 8 @ Quebec Remparts 2

W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 0 Hits

Kucherov (pictured) made his long-awaited North American debut and scored early in the second period to give Quebec a 2-1 lead (WATCH). He showed a good burst and slick stickwork on the goal, which was scored on the forehand to the goalie's blocker side. There will be plenty more where that came from. Kucherov had missed the first six weeks of the season recovering from May shoulder surgery. That 2-1 lead quickly evaporated and the Drakkar put a snowman on the scoreboard in Bonhomme’s backyard. Quebec came into the game ranked No. 3 in all of Canadian juniors.

He was drafted by the Bruins last summer. Peterborough has one win in their last 10 games (1-6-2-1) and is tied with Ottawa for last in the OHL with 7 points. Peterborough has the fewest wins with two in 12 games.

The Petes lost their fourth consecutive one-goal game. Koekkoek is tied for second on the club in points with seven. Center Francis Menard (undrafted) leads with 12. Unfortunately, Koekkoek’s minus-10 rating is worst on the team; the closest to him is minus-5. The Petes are a struggling team and Koekkoek logs significant ice time.

Peterborough has played inspired hockey since Koekkoek spoke out about the negativity in the locker room, but the Petes continue to come up short in games. On Sunday they allowed a late shorthanded goal to Guelph that forced overtime before the Storm won it in the extra session. Lightning prospect Tanner Richard did not play. He received a game misconduct penalty last game for instigating a fight in the final five minutes of regulation.

D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (high sticking)
Season totals: 8 GP, 1-4-5, -4, 10 PIM

The Petes fought back from a 2-goal deficit to force overtime, but gave up the extra point in a 4-3 loss to the Fronts. Koekkoek earned an assist to give him at least one point in consecutive games for the first time since November 8 and 11 last year when he had six points in two games. He injured his shoulder two weeks later and was out for the season. Spencer Watson (2014) had three assists for Kingston.
