C Richard Panik, WSR: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 33 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

Windsor’s 24-game streak without a regulation loss came to a crashing halt Sunday, and at home no less. Rangers goaltender Mavric Parks (undrafted) stopped 46 shots to earn First Star honors. Panik will now join Team Slovakia for their WJC camp. Windsor Forwards Taylor Hall, Adam Henrique, and Greg Nemisz, along with defensemen Ryan Ellis and Cam Fowler were all out of the line-up for this game, either attending their WJC camps or preparing for camps.

Ottawa 67’s 1 @ Barrie Colts 4
LW/C Alex Hutchings, BAR: 1-0-1, +2, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 32 GP, 19-21-40, +20, 22 PIM

With Norfolk (AHL): 2 GP, 0-2-0, 1.52 GAA, .939 sv%

Sarnia outshot Erie 12-3 in the third period while the Otters were clutching to their 3-2 lead. Janus shut the door, unofficially earning his first First Star of the season. If Janus had enough games to qualify, his save percentage would rank sixth in the league.

WHL

RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-1-1, -1, 4 PIM (hooking, slashing)
Season Totals: 29 GP, 13-14-26, -10, 56 PIM

This was Regina’s first game without Canadian national team stars Jordan Eberle and Colton Teubert, who are at the WJC camp. With the win, Lethbridge pulled into a second-last place tie with Edmonton in the Eastern Conference. Regina fell to last in the East Division, but are in eighth in the Eastern Conference.

OHL

Belleville Bulls 2 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 5
RW Kyle DeCoste, BEL: 0-0-0, E, 5 PIM (elbowing, game misconduct)
Season Totals: 29 GP, 10-8-18, -1, 31 PIM
With Bulls: 16 GP, 8-7-15, +1, 11 PIM
With SSM: 13 GP, 2-1-3, -2, 20 PIM

DeCoste made his first return to the Soo after being traded from the Greyhounds earlier this year. It wasn’t the return he was hoping for as he was thrown out midway through the second period for elbowing an unsuspecting Tomas Rachunek in the head. Rachunek left the ice with a cut on his head and an apparent shoulder injury. SSM scored on the ensuing power play. Like it did when he was traded from Brampton to the Soo last year, DeCoste’s game has taken off since being traded. Up until Friday night he was producing at a point-per-game clip for the Bulls. He was named the team's Most Improved Player by the Belleville paper this week.

C Richard Panik, WSR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 32 GP, 9-9-18, +15, 19 PIM

Panik scored for the second straight game but failed to convert his shootout attempt - but the Spits still won. Windsor hasn’t been defeated in regulation or overtime since a 6-5 loss to Sarnia on October 11 (21-0-0-3).

Oshawa Generals 5 @ Kingston Frontenacs 2
G Michael Zador, OSH: Did not play.

WHL

Regina Pats 2 @ Medicine Hat Tigers 7
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -9, 52 PIM
With Regina: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
With Lethbridge: 28 GP, 13-13-26, -8, 52 PIM

Ashton made his debut for Regina wearing No.25 and starting the game on a line next to super-prospect Jordan Eberle (Oilers 1/2008) and Matt Strueby (undrafted). The line produced one goal in the game, an unassisted marker by Eberle. The Pats' Eberle and Colton Teubert will not play again for Regina in 2009 as they leave to attend Canada's WJC camp. Both are locks to make the club. Ashton will not wait long to face his former club as he and the remaining Pats will take on Lethbridge Saturday night.

OHL

Erie Otters 1 @ Windsor Spitfires 3
G Jaroslav Janus, ERIE: Loss, 46 saves on 49 shots
Season Totals: 8 GP, 4-3-1-0, 2.94 GAA, .919 sv%

C Richard Panik, WSR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 31 GP, 8-9-17, +14, 19 PIM

Welcome back, Mr. Janus (pictured). The Slovakia native returned from missing several games due to injury to reportedly put on a show in a loss to the CHL’s top ranked team, Windsor. Fellow Lightning prospect Richard Panik beat Janus early in the second period for what turned out to be the game winner for the Spits. It has been 23 games since Windsor lost in regulation.

Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 4 @ Oshawa Generals 5 (OT)
G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, 33 saves on 37 shots
Season Totals: 24 GP, 11-9-2-1, 3.25 GAA, .900 sv%, 1 SO

Oshawa scored with just over a minute left in the game to tie it, then won it on Calvin de Haan’s power play goal in overtime. De Haan was a first round pick (12th overall) of the Islanders at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He has 19 points (5 goals) in 26 games this season for Oshawa. Zador has won four straight starts and has not lost in regulation in seven games.
