Season Totals: 34 GP, 13-16-2-1, 3.45 GAA, .897 sv%, 2 SO

Season Totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

Season Totals: 47 GP, 32-23-55, +30, 38 PIM

Hutchings has 22 goals in his last 24 games, a time span which includes a four-game pointless streak. Sointu was making his first appearance since the World Juniors. He reportedly returned to Finland for surgery after taking a puck to the face in the tournament. Barrie is ranked second in the latest CHL Top-10.

Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 1 @ Oshawa Generals 2 (SO)

With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

Not a good night for the Bulls, who were tied with Mississauga at one after the first period. Panik’s scoreless streak stretched to five games. Belleville is tied for ninth in the conference and is just five points behind Brampton for eighth, but they have to make their run now. Mississauga has the second best point total in the conference at 71.

D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 45 GP, 10-30-40, +28, 48 PIM

Barberio has points in 11 of his last 12 games. Moncton completed the weekend road trip through Quebec 3-0, with all their wins coming in convincing fashion. Barberio hit 40 points for the third straight season, though he’s well on pace to smash his career high of 46 points set in 70 games two years ago.

Season Totals: 32 GP, 12-15-2-1, 3.47 GAA, .897 sv%, 2 SO

A huge performance for Zador, and he did it for a team that can’t seem to close the floodgates when it comes to the opposition scoring. The win breaks a personal six-game losing streak for Zador. It’s his second career shutout, and first since a 37-save performance on October 9 against Erie.
