Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Drummondville Voltigeurs 0 @ Sherbrooke Phoenix 4

C Cameron Darcy, SHR: 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM, 9/20 FO, 3 Hits, *Third Star*
With Sherbrooke: 1 GP, 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM
With Cape Breton: 21 GP, 1-13-15, -6, 14 PIM
Season totals: 22 GP, 1-15-17, -6, 16 PIM
2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Darcy (pictured) made his Sherbrooke debut after being traded by Cape Breton during the week. Darcy, who was dropped off the Eagles roster after a slow start, was acquired to fill an overage slot. The Phoenix paid a draft pick to get him. Hopefully the fresh start ignites Darcy’s game, though he does have six points in his last three games (all assists).

Prospect of the Week: 12-8-14

We continue our Bolt Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for his recent contributions on and off the ice.

The Bolt Prospect of the Week for December 8, 2014 is … Brayden Point, Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL – Canada).

With the success of smaller players in the NHL and its recent transformation into a speed and skill league, it’s rather dumbfounding that Brayden Point fell to the 2014 draft’s third round. But there was Point, a prolific producer with captain-worthy character and high-end hockey sense, sitting at No. 79 with the Lightning just one pick away at 80.

The Lightning may preach patience with prospects, but they showed none of it in this instance.

The CHL’s sixth ranked team outshot Sarnia 41-20, but Anthony DeAngelo and the Sting won in a shootout, 7-6. DeAngelo, who has points in five straight games and 10 of his past 11, scored the first Sarnia goal of the game, setting off a teddy bear toss.
