The Tigres built a snowman on the scoreboard at home on Sunday with an 8-1 win over the Drakkar. Brandon Hynes (undrafted) had four goals and an assist for Victoriaville. He was a Lightning camper and member of the Bolts' Traverse City team in 2010. Milan’s scoreless and shotless streak reached five games.

OHL

London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 2

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1 E, 2 PIM (roughing)
Season Totals: 39 GP, 17-33-50, +14, 38 PIM

Namestnikov extended his point streak to four games with an assist Sunday in the Soo against USA World Juniors goaltender Jack Campbell (Stars). London scored twice on the power play and twice shorthanded – including a penalty shot by Ryan Rupert (2012). Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a goal and two assists for First Star honors. The story has been told many times, but once again the Bolts let Griffith go back to London after the south Florida rookie tournament and before Lightning training camp started. He was listed on the official Lightning camp roster. Griffith exploded this year and one London media member told me he is “the real deal.” If the Lightning are to get him in camp next year, they’ll have to draft him as Griffith will enter the NHL draft for a second straight year. He went undrafted in 2011. That won't happen again. Griffith is fourth in the league with 61 points (32 goals) in 42 games. Namestnikov is tied for 13th. Griffith is second in goals and his linemate, Namestnikov, is fifth in assists.

Schemitsch is still looking for his first point in an Oshawa uniform.

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1 E, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season Totals: 37 GP, 17-30-47, +13, 36 PIM

Namestnikov had an assist on Tommy Hughes’ first OHL goal, but London was shocked at home 4-1 to Kingston. With the OHL trade deadline come and gone, the Knights loaded up with skill and have a very good shot at not only winning the OHL title, but the Memorial Cup. Of course, despite all that talent they were beaten at home and the one guy who scored was a defenseman who’s never scored before. London did outshoot Kingston 50-22 in the game. World Juniors veteran Igor Bobkov (Ducks) – who played for London last season – stopped 49 shots for the Frontenacs.
