With Guelph: 11 GP, 7-5-12, -5, 14 PIM
With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 31 PIM
Season totals: 38 GP, 21-22-43, -5, 45 PIM

With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals: 22 GP, 12-4-1-1, 3.47 GAA, .877 sv%, 1 SO

Panik’s goal scoring streak was stopped at six games as Owen Sound won the second game of a home-and-home series with Guelph. The Storm won Friday night. Panik has at least one point in nine of 11 games with Guelph. Michael Zador served as backup for both games of the series.

WHL

Vancouver Giants 2 @ Tri-City Americans 5
RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM (roughing)
With Tri-City: 2 GP, 1-3-4, E, 2 PIM
With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -11, 44 PIM
Season Totals: 31 GP, 17-14-31, -11, 46 PIM

TC scored the game’s first five goals en route to a 5-2 win over the Giants. Ashton has four points in his first two games with the Americans.

Chilliwack Bruins 3 @ Prince George Cougars 1
RW Brett Connolly, PG: Did not play (injured – knee).
Season totals: 34 GP, 25-15-40, -5, 12 PIM

D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +1, 9 PIM (roughing, fighting vs. Jordan Peddle, tripping)
Season totals: 44 GP, 2-10-12, +8, 75 PIM

It turns out the reason Zahn was listed as No.55 last game was his No.4 jersey was so torn after a fight he had to switch. He was back in his familiar No.4 Saturday – and fought again. The jersey apparently survived this one. Saskatoon and Swift Current traded road wins in their home-and-home series this weekend.

BCHL

Langley Chiefs 4 @ Penticton Vees 6
C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-2-2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 42 GP, 17-38-55, 20 PIM

O’Donnell remains second on the Vees in scoring, seven points behind defenseman and Denver commit Joey Leleggia. The 5-10, 180-pound, left-handed defenseman was passed over in the 2010 draft. O’Donnell is tied for 11th in the BCHL points race. Undersized 20-year-old forward David Morley of Victoria, a St. Cloud State commit, leads the league with 68 points in 40 games.

USHL

C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

Fargo pulled into a first place tie with Dubuque, though the Fighting Saints still have four games in hand on the Force. Mullin has fallen to fourth in league scoring, eight points behind Indiana’s Blake Coleman. Born in Texas, Coleman is undrafted and is committed to play collegiately with Mullin at Miami of Ohio. Mullin is tied for third in the league in plus/minus, two behind Coleman.

With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -11, 44 PIM
Season Totals: 30 GP, 17-12-29, -11, 44 PIM

Season totals: 44 GP, 2-10-12, +8, 75 PIM

C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
Season totals: 24 GP, 14-17-31, +17, 18 PIM

Somehow Fargo scored seven goals and their leading scorer, Mullin, didn’t figure in on any of them. He’s likely too busy smiling about the win to care.

QMJHL

Season Totals: 34 GP, 4-13-17, +5, 20 PIM

After not scoring in his time for Team Canada, Connolly had a goal and an assist and earned First Star in his return to Prince George. His goal came after he toe-dragged past a defender. The Cougars gave up a third period goal to the Giants, however, and took the loss. With the win, the Giants tied the Cougars for tops in the B.C. Division, though Prince George has two games in hand.
