Ouch. This was a big game for Wilcox, who was coming off a 34-save shutout and facing the team that traded him just a few weeks ago. Wilcox gave up two in the first period, then two quick ones early in the third to take the loss. He was pulled in favor of backup Phoenix Copley.

Blackhawks 2011 first rounder Phillip Danault, who just signed an entry level contract with Chicago this week, scored the overtime winner. Victoriaville, who acquired Milan earlier this week from Moncton for two younger players, has revamped their backline and are still rumored to be after Moncton captain Brandon Gormley.

London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 1

Season Totals: 34 GP, 17-27-44, +12, 28 PIM

Namestnikov played his first game since being cut from Team Russia for what turned out to be a lower body injury that kept him out of the Knights’ next three games. He was named second star because former Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a goal and three assists for First Star. Griffith and Namestnikov continue to produce well together – something some Lightning fans would like to see in the future with the big club. This was the second four-assist game for Namestnikov in his last five contests.

OHL

Sarnia Sting 3 @ London Knights 7

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: Did not play (injured)
Season Totals: 33 GP, 17-23-40, +10, 28 PIM

After Namestnikov was a surprise cut by Team Russia at the World Junior tournament, rumors started swirling he was injured when trying to make the team though nothing had been announced. Friday was the second straight game for London that Namestnikov has missed due to a “lower body injury,” giving those rumors some credibility. Speaking of credibility, it’s a lot easier to handle Namestnikov – a first round pick of the Lightning in 2011 – not making the team due to an injury than not being good enough. On Friday, Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a hat trick for the Knights. He also added an assist. Griffith (pictured) now has 29 goals and 50 points in 35 games.

Owen Sound Attack 1 @ Kitchener Rangers 4

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 25 GP, 0-8-8, +1, 16 PIM

Schemitsch couldn’t string together two straight games with an assist and Owen Sound couldn’t beat the Rangers at the Aud in Kitchener on Friday, losing 4-1. Schemitsch had an assist Wednesday in a 2-1 loss to Niagara.
