Milan made his Victoriaville debut, which ended up to be an overtime win for the Tigres over the leagueâ€™s top team. Blackhawks 2011 first rounder Phillip Danault, who just signed an entry level contract with Chicago this week, scored the overtime winner. Victoriaville, who acquired Milan earlier this week from Moncton for two younger players, has revamped their backline and are still rumored to be after Moncton captain Brandon Gormley.
QMJHL Note: Lightning prospect Adam Janosik of Gatineau is with Team Slovakia at the U20 World Junior Championships in Alberta.
London Knights 6 @ Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 1
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-4-4, +2, *Second Star*
Season Totals: 34 GP, 17-27-44, +12, 28 PIM
Namestnikov played his first game since being cut from Team Russia for what turned out to be a lower body injury that kept him out of the Knightsâ€™ next three games. He was named second star because former Lightning camper Seth Griffith had a goal and three assists for First Star. Griffith and Namestnikov continue to produce well together â€“ something some Lightning fans would like to see in the future with the big club. This was the second four-assist game for Namestnikov in his last five contests.
