CHL Game Night 10/3: Three Point Night for Tyrell

WHL
Tri-City Americans 2 @ Prince George Cougars 5
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-3-3, E, 0 PIM, *Second Star*

The Cougars got revenge on the Americans by winning the second of a back-to-back set in Prince George. The victory was their first of the year after four losses. Tyrell has six points (two goals) in three games since returning from the Norfolk Admirals' AHL camp.

Spokane Chiefs 0 @ Everett Silvertips 4
D Dane Crowley, EVT: Did Not Play

Everett won their first game of the season, and like Prince George, the win came after four losses. Crowley did not play as he was in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan due to a death in the family. The Tips released one of their six overagers yesterday, but that still leaves five fighting for three allowed spots. Crowley is one of those five remaining.

Wednesday's Superleague Score

Anton But had an assist and 2 penalty minutes in St. Petersburg's 4-3 loss to Dynamo. But has 3 goals and 6 points through 12 games so far this season.

CHL Game Night 10/2: Fadden's Streak Ends

WHL
Swift Current Broncos 3 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 1
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

Fadden saw his five game point streak to start the season come to an end. Lethbridge outshot the Broncos 28-19.

Tri-City Americans 5 @ Prince George Cougars 2
C Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-0-0, -4, 2 PIM

Tyrell tied for the team’s worst plus/minus rating at minus-4, but the Prince George Citizen called Tyrell the Cougars' unquestioned leader during the game, continually taking pucks to the net. Dana Tyrell’s younger brother, Corey, scored his second goal of the season in the loss for Prince George. Traverse City Lightning free agent Colton Yellow Horn had a goal, an assist, was a plus-3, and was named Third Star for Tri-City.

Tuesday's Superleague Scores

Denis Kazionov did not play in Novokuznetsk's 5-4 overtime loss to Magnitogorsk.

Evgeny Artyukhin was scoreless in Omsk's 4-1 thumping of Togliatti.

Albert Vishnyakov did not play in Spartak's 4-0 loss to Ufa.

Vasily Koshechkin dropped to a horrific 2-6-1 this season in Kazan's 3-0 loss to Cherepovets. Dimitri Kazionov and Alexei Glukhov were scoreless in the match for Ak Bars and Cherepovets respectively.

Tuesday's Elitserien Scores

Lulea got their first win of the season today defeating Sodertalje 2-0. Lightning prospect Johan Harju had 2 penalty minutes in the game, a roughing minor gained in a four man altercation which involved former Lightning player Kristian Kudroc. The young forward played third line center in the game.

Andreas Holmqvist scored a power play goal on a two man advantage in Frolunda's 4-1 win over Linkopings.

28 Left in Admirals Camp

Norfolk has posted their current roster of 28 players remaining in Admirals camp. The roster obviously does not include forward Mathieu Darche who remains in Tampa Bay. Four non-contract tryout players remain on the roster: defenseman Brett Angel, and forwards Rob Klinkhammer, Justin Taylor, and Shawn Collymore.

Update:
I suppose Morgan Cey is technically a non-contract tryout player as well.

Monday's Superleague Score

Anton But was scoreless today in St. Petersburg's 2-1 win over Tver. Through 11 games But has 3 goals and 5 points so far this season.

It's Official: Lundin and Smaby Make the Team

According to the blog of Damian Crisdotero, who could hardly mask his enthusiasm for Matt Smaby making the team (and yes, that was sarcasm), the Lightning have made their final decision regarding their defensemen and both Matt Smaby and Mike Lundin have made the team. In addition, Crisdotero speculates Smaby and Lundin have passed Doug Janik on the depth chart and suggests the reason the Lightning did not re-assign Janik to Norfolk of the AHL was because the organization feared losing Janik on waivers (and it is a very good assumption they would have).

Another triumph for the allegedly broken down Lightning prospect system.

Three Clear Waivers, But Only Two Assigned to Norfolk

According to tampabaylightning.com, forward Kyle Wanvig and defenseman Bryce Lampman have been assigned to AHL Norfolk after clearing waivers. Winger Mathieu Darche also cleared waivers today, but he will remain with the Lightning as Tampa Bay's Andreas Karlsson is day-to-day with an abdominal injury.
