North American Juniors Game Night: 2-3-12
Tri-City Storm 1 @ Sioux City Musketeers 4
G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 30 saves on 34 shots
Season Totals (with Tri-City): 15 GP, 6-9-0, 3.29 GAA, .908 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO
Wilcoxâ€™s string of three games with First Star awards came to an end on Friday.
Gatineau Olympiques 4 @ Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 5
D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-1-1, +1, 7 PIM (fighting vs. Dylan Anderson, hooking), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 40 GP, 5-22-27, -9, 43 PIM
Gatineau captain Adam Janosik was a goal shy of a Gordie Howe hat trick after having an assist (shorthanded) and a fight. Janosik has elevated his game since being named captain. He dropped the gloves 23 seconds into the game to help send a message to the Armada. He certainly did as he pummeled Anderson in a clear fight win for Janosik. (see video below)
Victoriaville Tigres 6 @ Baie-Comeau Drakkar 1
D Daniel Milan, VIC: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
Season Totals: 47 GP, 1-6-7, -14, 43 PIM
With Victoriaville: 14 GP, 1-1-2, -1, 12 PIM
With Moncton: 33 GP, 0-5-5, -13, 31 PIM
The Tigres broke open a close 1-0 game after the first period with three second period goals and coasted to a 6-1 road win. Former Lightning camper Brandon Hynes had a goal and two assists for Victoriaville.
Niagara IceDogs 3 @ London Knights 2
C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 46 GP, 17-38-55, +11, 38 PIM
Namestnikov set a new career high when he failed to score for the 14th straight game. London broke Niagara goalie Mark Visentinâ€™s shutout streak at three games, but the Coyotes pick got the win against the high-powered Knights. Former Lightning draft pick Brock Beukeboom (pictured), who was traded by the Lightning at this time last year to the Blues, played his 30th game of the season on Friday for Niagara. He missed most of last year and this year with a concussion. He had an assist Friday to give him 11 points (2 goals) on the year for Niagara. Hopefully his development is back on track after missing so much time due to injury. The Lightning took him in the third round in 2010.
Oshawa Generals 2 @ Ottawa 67â€™s 3
D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OSH: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 36 GP, 0-14-14, +2, 22 PIM
With Oshawa: 9 GP, 0-3-3, -1, 2 PIM
With Owen Sound: 27 GP, 0-11-11, +3, 20 PIM
Czech World Juniors goaltending hero Petr Mrazek (Red Wings) stopped 34 of 36 shots for Ottawa on Friday night to earn the victory and First Star honors.
