North American Juniors Game Night: 12-9-11
Des Moines Buccaneers 5 @ Tri-City Storm 3
G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 28 saves on 32 shots
Season Totals (with Tri-City): 5 GP, 1-4-0, 3.22 GAA, .910 sv%, 0 SO
Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO
After winning his first game as a member of the Storm, Wilcox has dropped his last four, though he has managed to maintain a respectable save percentage through the slump.
Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 5
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking), 3 SOG, 1 Hit
Season Totals: 27 GP, 2-16-18, +1, 27 PIM
Gatineau broke a four game losing streak and Janosik snapped a five game scoreless streak as the Olympiques avenged an overtime loss to the Eagles earlier in the week with a 5-2 home win Friday. Emile Poirier (2013 draft) had a hat trick for Gatineau, which doubled the rookieâ€™s goal output for the year. Janosik, as expected, was named to Team Slovakiaâ€™s preliminary roster for the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships. He had five assists in six games for Slovakia at last yearâ€™s WJCs.
Peterborough Petes 4 @ London Knights 7
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-4-4, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 30 GP, 16-21-37, +9, 28 PIM
Namestnikov (pictured) tied a career high with four points and his linemate (and Lightning camper) Seth Griffith had a hat trick and an assist to lead London to a 7-4 home win over the Petes. Namestnikovâ€™s four points were a season high for him, but he had a four point game (3+1) last February against Barrie. His four assists in the game were a career high.
