CHL Game Night: 10/18

WHL

Lethbridge Hurricanes 3 @ Moose Jaw Warriors 6
RW Carter Ashton, LET: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 12 GP, 7-3-10, -5, 18 PIM

Lethbridge has dropped three in a row and sits in last in the Eastern Conference at 4-9-0-1. Ashton, who is scoreless in two, started on a line with Mitch Maxwell (WHL rookie) and Carter Bancks (undrafted). Ashton is first on the team in goals and third in points.

Tokjanius

Here's your stat of the week:

Through six games, Norfolk's goaltenders have a combined 2.19 GAA and .925 save percentage. Mind you, they're 2-4-0 as a group, but you'd have to believe that if Tokarski, Helenius, and Janus keep this up the Admirals are going to be in great shape.

I mean, it's not like Martins Karsums can stay scoreless forever, right?

Togliatti 2 @ Ekaterinburg 0
Vasily Koshechkin, Togliatti, Win, 32/32, 1 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
Season totals: 12 GP, 5-7, 2 SO, 2.32 GAA, .920 sv%

Denis Kazionov, Ekaterinburg, 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM, 4 SOG
Season totals: 15 GP, 1-0-1, -4, 6 PIM

Vasily Koshechkin got back on track in a big way with his second shutout of the season against Ekaterinburg, which has dropped back into the cellar of its conference. Denis Kazionov took a 4 minute high sticking double minor in the contest and played 11:46 in the match.

Kazan 1 @ Magnitogorsk 3
Dimitry Kazionov, Kazan, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season totals: 15 GP, 3-1-4, -4, 10 PIM

Magnitogorsk managed to cool off the elder Kazionov, who has been hot of late, holding him to just 1 shot on goal in 12:27 of ice time. Kazan is clinging to a disappointing 8th place in their conference thus far. Former Lightning prospect Fedor Fedorov had an assist in the contest and older brother Sergei also had a goal for Magnitogorsk.

CHL Game Night: 10/17

QMJHL

Moncton Wildcats 2 @ St. John Sea Dogs 3 (OT)
D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 13 GP, 1-9-10, E, 14 PIM

Barberio’s four game points streak came to an end in a loss to provincial rival St. John.

OHL

Oshawa Generals 3 @ Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds 2 (SO)
G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, 24 saves on 26 shots, *Third Star*
Season: 8 GP, 6-1-1-0, 2.98 GAA, .903 sv%, 1 SO
RW Kyle DeCoste, SSM: Did not play.
Season totals: 8 GP, 1-0-1, -2, 16 PIM

Zador won his fifth straight start when he went 3 for 3 in the shootout to beat the Soo. He’s now dropped his GAA from near 6 to under 3. The Greyhounds have lost five straight, but at least they earned a point in this one. No official news as to why DeCoste – who has been struggling despite being expected this year to bring offensive leadership - was scratched.

Windsor Spitfires 4 @ Plymouth Whalers 0
C Richard Panik, WSR: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season Totals: 11 GP, 4-2-6, +8, 2 PIM

Panik’s short three game scoreless streak came to an end when he scored in the first period. Playing on a line with likely 2010 first overall pick Taylor Hall and Devils third rounder Adam Henrique, it should be just a matter of time for Panik to explode offensively.

Ottawa 67’s 3 @ Saginaw Spirit 2
LW Matais Sointu, OTT: Did not play.
Season totals: 11 GP, 3-3-6, +3, 4 PIM

Ottawa broke their seven game winless streak, but Sointu remains out of the lineup.

Mercyhurst Lakers 1 @ Western Michigan Broncos 5
D Luke Witkowski , UWM: 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG

Witkowski made his collegiate debut for the Broncos after spending the last two seasons in the USHL. Even as a freshman, the former Fargo Force captain is expected to make an impact on the UWM blueline this season. Witkowski, a native of Holland, Michigan, had six goals and 22 points last year for Fargo, helping them to the USHL Finals.

Notes: Alex Killorn and Harvard begin their season with an exhibition game October 23. They start their regular season October 30 at Dartmouth ... Matt Marshall and No.11 Vermont are off until Sunday ... Recent Lightning prospect Justin Courtnall (BCHL Victoria) made his collegiate debut for Boston University Friday night. He was scoreless, even, and had one shot on goal as the No.2 Terriers lost to unranked UMass 3-2.
