N.A. Juniors Game Night 10/3: Tokarski Sets Spokane Record

Dustin Tokarski records his third shutout in five games this year ... DeCoste with a game winner ... and first star accolades for Mark Barberio and undefeated Moncton.

BCHL

Cowichan Valley Capitals 3 @ Victoria Grizzlies 8
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 1-1-2, 6 PIM (holding, hooking, cross-checking)

Courtnall earned the primary assist on what turned out to be the game winner for the Grizzlies. His goal gave Victoria a 2-1 lead in the first period.

QMJHL

Shawinigan Cataractes 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 4
D Mark Barberio, MON: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, *First Star*

Barberio’s goal came on the power play and his assist was shorthanded. The Wildcats are 7-0 on the year.

Chicoutimi Sagueneens 2 @ Rimouski Oceanic 3
W/C Luca Cunti, RIM: 0-2-2, +1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG

Cunti had his first multi-point game of the year, earning assists on Rimouski’s first two goals.

Lewiston MAINEiacs 0 @ Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, -2, 4 PIM, 1 SOG

OHL

Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Brampton Battalion 3
W Kyle DeCoste, BRA: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking), *Second Star*

DeCoste broke a 2-2 tie for Brampton with his goal early in the third period.

WHL

Everett Silvertips 0 @ Spokane Chiefs 5
G Dustin Tokarski, SPO: Win, 30 saves on 30 shots, Shutout, 2 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct), *Second Star*

Tokarski notched his third shutout of the season (in five games) to help the Chiefs improve to 4-1-0-1. His penalty came with 20 seconds left in the game. Tokarski’s shutout was the 11th of his career and sets a new franchise record.

Chilliwack Bruins 1 @ Prince George Cougars 4
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM (roughing)

Tyrell’s first goal of the year gave the Cougars an insurance goal late in the third period.

Seattle Thunderbirds 2 @ Vancouver Giants 10
C James Wright, VAN: 1-1-2, +2, 2 PIM (slashing)

Wright’s goal put double-digits on the scoreboard for the Giants. Seattle starter Calvin Pickard was pulled after giving up seven goals. Jacob DeSerres then gave up three on 10 shots. It was DeSerres who challenged Lightning first rounder Riku Helenius for playing time last season in Seattle. DeSerres is scheduled to start in goal tonight (Saturday) vs. Tokarski and Spokane in Seattle’s home opener. The T-Birds are the only team in the WHL without a point this year (0-5).

tokarski

Dustin has a chance to extend that shutout streak. The T-Birds are playing some awful hockey. They desperately need Hickey back. Lombardi, please send Thomas down to help out the T-Birds.

tonight's game

I forgot to add that I will be attending the Spokane vs. Seattle game tonight. Maybe, I will get to see Dustin extend his streak.

Good Start

Other than Ward, all the junior kids seem to be off to a pretty good start. Even Cunti, who I was a little skiddish about after Traverse City, is putting up numbers, and James Wright looks like he might be a pleasant surprise from the past draft.
