North American Juniors Game Night: 12-8-11

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 2 @ Rimouski Oceanic 4

D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 26 GP, 0-4-4, -7, 25 PIM

Milan has not registered a point in eight games. He is minus-5 during that time. Milan is fourth in points for the year among Wildcat defensemen. While Lightning management said they signed Milan for his defensive abilities and offense is a bonus, one suspects they weren't expecting him to slump this bad after a 38-point rookie season.

OHL

Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Barrie Colts 5

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured)
Season Totals: 20 GP, 0-7-7, -1, 16 PIM

Schemitsch (pictured) hasn’t played since November 12 because of an upper body injury. He is still being listed as day-to-day. Mark Scheifele, who started the season with the Winnipeg Jets, had two goals in the game for Barrie. He has 11 goals and 32 points in 18 games this season for the Colts.

OHL

London Knights 2 @ Kitchener Rangers 4
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 27 GP, 16-18-34, +13, 28 PIM

Namestnikov was a game-time decision because of the flu, but gave the okay-to-go after warm-ups. Unfortunately for him and the Knights, they fell to Kitchener for the second time this season. The game was played in Kitchener at "The Aud" (pictured). Namestnikov, who was left off the Russian preliminary U20 World Junior Championship roster earlier in the day (he’s expected to join the team when they get to Canada), was scoreless for the second game in a row. Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored his 20th of the season in the game. London is just four points up on Kitchener for first in the OHL’s Midwest Division.

Namestnikov’s four game point streak was snapped in a road win over Geoffrey Schemitsch-less Owen Sound. Namestnikov’s teammate, Andreas Athanasiou (2012 draft eligible), had four goals in the game. Schemitsch hasn’t played since November 12 because of an upper body injury.

After a strong debut for Tri-City, Wilcox has lost his last two games. The Storm and Force were deadlocked at 3 entering the third period and Wilcox’s Storm had a 4-3 lead at 7:25. Fargo then exploded for three goals and the rest was history. Wilcox’s goals against average rose by over a goal after the loss.

D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (holding), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
