Penticton Vees 1 @ Vernon Vipers 3
C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 1-0-1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
Season totals: 39 GP, 16-33-49, 18 PIM

Penticton entered the game two points ahead of Vernon for the Interior Conference lead, but after the night was done the two teams were tied atop the standings. O’Donnell’s power play goal in the second period cut the Vipers’ lead to 2-1, but the Vees couldn’t complete the comeback. O’Donnell was named the game’s Second Star for his efforts.

Fargo Force 5 @ Sioux Falls Stampede 2
C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *Second Star*
Season totals: 23 GP, 14-17-31, +17, 18 PIM

Mullin set up Colton Hargrove with the eventual game winning goal less than a minute after the Stampede had tied the game in the second period, then scored the insurance goal early in the third to lead the Force to a road win in Sioux Falls. Fargo pulled within three points of Dubuque for the Western Conference lead. Meanwhile, Mullin is within four points of the USHL scoring lead despite playing three fewer games than leader Vinny Saponari (Thrashers) of Dubuque. Saponari was kicked off the Boston University team last year with his brother and tried to transfer to Boston College but his application was denied. With his plus-1 night Saturday, Mullin leads the league in plus/minus at plus-17.

Jarrad Struthers (undrafted) scored his 13th of the season for Rimouski in overtime. Landry started the game, but didn’t hit the scoresheet.

Sudbury Wolves 1 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 7
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 31 GP, 0-5-5, -7, 46 PIM

I saw the score and thought there was a great chance Beukeboom scored his first of the year, but not yet. The Brock Beukeboom goal watch continues. A captain will always take a win over a goal, and the Soo took both games from Sudbury this week.

Season totals: 21 GP, 13-16-29, +16, 16 PIM

Mullin scored at 3:16 of overtime to lift the Force to a road win in division-leading Dubuque. He also added an assist on Fargo’s other goal, yet the decision makers in Iowa decided he shouldn’t be a game star. Two Saints were first and second star, respectively. Mullin has a five game point streak in which he has 10 points. He has 15 points in his last seven games.

OHL

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 3
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 30 GP, 0-5-5, -8, 46 PIM

Beukeboom scored seven times last year, but after 30 games the Soo captain is still looking for his first goal of the season.

Zador won last time out, but was back in his familiar backup role for the Attack Wednesday. The Attack put up a snowman against Barrie, paced by four points each by Joey Hishon (Avalanche) and Andrew Fritsch (2011 draft).
