Wilcox won his third straight game and had plenty of goal support to do so. The boys from Kearney beat their intra-state rivals from the east, 8-3. Las Vegas native and future Penn State Nittany Lion Kenny Brooks had a hat trick for Tri-City. (Kearney Hub photo)

Former Lightning forward and PEI coach Gordie Dwyer saw the visiting Tigres beat his Rocket 3-2 on the island. PEI is last in the QMJHL, four points out of a playoff spot. All but one team makes the postseason.


Oshawa Generals 1 @ Barrie Colts 5

D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: Did not play (injured)
Season Totals: 39 GP, 0-14-14, +4, 22 PIM
With Oshawa: 12 GP, 0-3-3, +2, 4 PIM
With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM

Schemitsch remains scratched for Oshawa because of a concussion. This is at least his third concussion. Late bloomer Tanner Pearson (undrafted) had a goal and an assist for the Colts. Pearson, who is second in the league with 79 points in 47 games (33 goals), is speculated to go in the second round of this summer’s NHL draft. He played for Team Canada at the recent World Junior tournament.
