Season Totals: 41 GP, 5-23-28, -9, 47 PIM

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-2-2, +3, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 48 GP, 18-42-60, +15, 38 PIM

Namestnikov’s two assists game him five points in his last two games. He set up linemate and former Lightning camper Seth Griffith (pictured) on two of Griffith’s three goals in the game. The hat trick gave Griffith 39 goals for the year and moved him into the OHL lead in that category. He is eligible to re-enter the draft this year and will likely be taken early.

Namestnikov and Griffith were the subject of a feature in the London Free Press this week. To read the story, click here.

Season Totals: 40 GP, 5-22-27, -9, 43 PIM

Gatineau captain Adam Janosik was a goal shy of a Gordie Howe hat trick after having an assist (shorthanded) and a fight. Janosik has elevated his game since being named captain. He dropped the gloves 23 seconds into the game to help send a message to the Armada. He certainly did as he pummeled Anderson in a clear fight win for Janosik. (see video below)

Niagara IceDogs 3 @ London Knights 2

C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 46 GP, 17-38-55, +11, 38 PIM

Namestnikov set a new career high when he failed to score for the 14th straight game. London broke Niagara goalie Mark Visentin’s shutout streak at three games, but the Coyotes pick got the win against the high-powered Knights. Former Lightning draft pick Brock Beukeboom (pictured), who was traded by the Lightning at this time last year to the Blues, played his 30th game of the season on Friday for Niagara. He missed most of last year and this year with a concussion. He had an assist Friday to give him 11 points (2 goals) on the year for Niagara. Hopefully his development is back on track after missing so much time due to injury. The Lightning took him in the third round in 2010.
