    Moncton Wildcats 5 @ Halifax Mooseheads 12 (Friday)

    C/W Otto Somppi, HAL: 2-1-3, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 16/21 FO
    Season Totals: 48 GP, 23-48-71, +35, 20 PIM
    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    Somppi assisted on a Jared McIsaac (2018 draft eligible) 1st period goal, and add goals of his own in the 2nd and 3rd periods as part of the Mooseheads unleashing a dozen goals on the Wildcats. After Halifax opened the scoring just 1:26 into the 1st, Moncton pushed back with three goals in just over four minutes to take a 4-1 lead early. But the McIsaac goal started a three-goal run by Halifax to finish off a seven-goal 1st period and take a 4-3 lead into the 1st intermission. The Mooseheads reeled off five 2nd period goals and then led off the 3rd with a goal as part of nine straight goals dating back the first. Moncton, down 10-3, scored twice more in the third before Halifax finished off the 3rd with two more. Besides Somppi’s two goals, the Mooseheads got two goals from Filip Zadina (2018 draft eligible), Benoit-Olivier Groulx (2018 draft eligible), and Connor Moynihan (undrafted). Groulx had a five-point game and Zadina had a four-point game to pace the Halifax attack. Somppi was also 76% on draws on the night... and... has the same amount of points as Katchouk and Raddysh. Think about it.

    The Soo unleashed a barrage on the visiting Bulldogs Friday night, blanking Hamilton 10-zip behind a hat trick by Hayden Verbeek (undrafted) and two goals from Morgan Frost (PHI, 2017 1st round pick). Katchouk assisted on both of Frost’s goals and Raddysh also assisted on Frost’s 3rd period power play marker.

    ‘16-‘17 Totals (VHL-Russia): 21 GP, 3-5-8, +5, 8 PIM

    The Bulldogs were obviously angry after getting beat by the Soo 10-0 last night and took it out on the Wolves, putting up a snowman on the scoreboard. Benjamin Gleason (undrafted) led the Bulldogs with two goals, and Macauley Carson (2018 draft eligible) led Sudbury with two goals and an assist. Carson’s 3rd period marker drew the Wolves within one at 4-3, but then Hamilton ripped off four straight, as Sudbury head coach Corey Stillman watched his son Riley Stillman (FLA, 2016 4th round pick) lead the Bulldogs’ 3rd period door slam with a goal and an assist.

    Oshawa Generals 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 0 (Friday)
    W Alexey Lipanov, SBY: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 5/13 FO

    Kingston scored shorthanded in the 1st and carried the 1-0 lead into the 3rd before Brady Hinz (2018 draft eligible) potted his 16th of the season to knot the score. But diminuative Finn Linus Nyman (2018 draft eligible) netted his 32nd of the season to give the Frontenacs a hard-fought home win against the Petes.

    Mississauga 1 @ Peterborough Petes 6 (Thursday)
    W/C Christopher Paquette, PBO: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 8 SOG, 7/16 FO

    D Cal Foote, KEL: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, *First Star*

    Foote opened the scoring early in the 1st to give the Rockets an early 1-0 lead, but the Blazers twice tied the game, eventually forcing overtime and then a shootout. Kamloops goalie Scott Todd (2018 draft eligible) turned away 29 Kelowna shots and stopped all three Rockets shooters in the shootout, and Trey Fix-Wolansky (undrafted) scored for the Blazers in the skills competition to give Kamloops the extra point.

    Red Deer Rebels 4 @ Kelowna Rockets 1 (Wednesday)
    D Cal Foote, KEL: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 5 SOG, *Third Star*

    After a scoreless 1st and 2nd period, the Rebels struck for four goals behind Brandon Hagel’s (BUF, 2016 6th round pick) goal and assist to put the game away for Red Deer. Foote earned Third Star honors in the losing effort.

Josh Mahura (ANA, 2016 3rd round pick) paced the Pats with two goals in what is surely a precursor to the WHL playoffs.

    Moose Jaw Warriors 6 @ Regina Pats 3 (Wednesday)
    D Libor Hajek, REG: 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM, 5 SOG

    Shawinigan Cataractes 1 @ Halifax Mooseheads 6

    C/W Otto Somppi, HAL: 2-0-2, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 14/23 FO, *First Star*
    Season Totals: 47 GP, 21-47-68, +35, 20 PIM
    ’16-’17 Totals: 60 GP, 17-24-41, -7, 28 PIM

    Somppi (pictured) scored twice in the span of 18 seconds, opening the scoring with a power play goal just 5:09 in the game, and then following it with what would be the eventual game-winner. Maxime Fortier (CLB, FA ELC) scored twice and blueliner Jared McIssac (2018 draft eligible) had four assists. It’s was Somppi’s 20th and 21st of the season, blowing by the 20-goal mark for the first time in his North American career. Somppi is still 3rd in the QMJHL in points and assists, and 2nd in the league in plus-minus. It is interesting to note that Ondrej Palat’s 19 y.o. season saw him total 17-23-40 in 59 games, which is eerily close to Somppi’s numbers last season. In Palat’s 20 y.o. season, he skyrocketed to 39-57-96 and +37 in 61 games. Halifax has 13 regular season game remaining, which should give Somppi 60 total games played. He won’t come close to Palat’s 39 goals (projecting Somppi at ~27), but he should eclipse Palat’s assist numbers (projecting Somppi at ~60) for total projected points of around 87. A little off Palat’s numbers, but definitely in the ballpark. Palat was an incredible 2-way forward find as a 7th rounder, and we may very well be seeing Somppi developing as that next late round 2-way gem from Al Murray & Company.

    ‘16-‘17 Totals (VHL-Russia): 21 GP, 3-5-8, +5, 8 PIM

    Lipanov was out of the lineup for the third straight game, as Sarnia rallied from a 4-2 first period deficit, getting goals from Jordan Kyrou (STL, 2016 2nd round pick) and Jonathan Ang (FLA, 2016 4th round pick) down the stretch to squeak the victory. The Sting were paced by Ang and Connor Schlichting (undrafted) who both had a goal and two assists in the contest. No word yet on whether Lipanov has been a healthy scratch getting off to a slow start with the Cory Stillman coached Wolves since the deadline trade from Barrie, or if he is injured.

    Peterborough Petes 5 @ Oshawa Generals 7

    W/C Christopher Paquette, PBO: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 6/21 FO

    Paquette had a pair of assists on both Nick Robertson (2020 draft eligible) goals early as part of a 3-0 lead built by the Petes. But the Generals pushed back with five 2nd period goals led by Danil Antropov (2019 draft eligible) and Jack Studnicka (BOS, 2017 2nd round pick). Former Maple Leafs prospect Nikita Korostelev and Semyon Der-Arguchintsev (2018 draft eligible) twice drew the Petes back within a goal, but Allan McShane (2018 draft eligible) sealed the Oshawa victory with his 2nd goal of the game late in the 3rd period.

    ‘16-‘17 Totals: 58 GP, 42-67-109, +67, 37 PIM

    Raddysh scored just 10 seconds into the game to serve notice that this game wouldn’t be like the last time the Otters tangled with the Soo. But it was Hayden Verbeek (undrafted) and Tim Gettinger (NYR, 2016 5th round pick) that delivered the notice. Verbeek notched his 19th and 20th goals of the season, and Gettinger tallying his 29th of the season. Both players racked up three points and were +4 in the Greyhounds victory.

    Lipanov was out of the lineup for the second straight game, as Sudbury’s one game win streak was short-lived after blowing a 3-2 lead late in the 2nd period. The Knights got goals from five different players, including the 3-3 equalizer from Billy Moskal (2018 draft eligible) with 43 seconds left in the 2nd period. David Levin (2018 draft eligible) scored again and Kirill Nizhnikov (2018 draft eligible) had a goal and an assist to lead the Wolves to that 3-2 lead.

Gregor and Kaspick had two goals each for Victoria as they swept the back-to-back series against Kelowna at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Arena in Victoria. Cal Foote assisted on a Kole Lind (VAN, 2017 2nd round pick) 1st period power play goal, and added a goal of his own later in the 1st to help give the Rockets a 2-1 lead at the first intermission.

    The Edina-Minnetonka Lake Conference rivalry hit another level in this 3rd meeting between the two teams. The Skippers won the first meeting on Boxing Day when the Hornets fell in the first round of the prestigious Schwann’s Cup holiday tournament on campus of the University of Minnesota. Two weeks ago, Edina exacted revenge when they put a snowman on the board at home at the Braemar Ice Arena. This third match took place at the Pagel Activity Center in Minnetonka with both team’s trading power play markers in the first period from the mitts of Jack Bayless (uncommitted) and Sammy Walker. After a scoreless 2nd period, Bayless scored his 2nd of the game for the Skippers and opened a three-goal run in space of about two-and-half minutes. But Walker responded with a short-handed score for his 27th of the season and his 2nd of the game, followed by the hope goal from Jett Jungels (Northern Michigan commit) to draw the Hornets within one at 16:47. Edina coach Curt Giles immediately pulled the goalie, but captain Joe Molenaar (uncommitted) potted the empty netter, his 2nd goal of the game, just 11 seconds later to seal the Minnetonka win. Edina's only two losses this season have come at the hands of the Skippers. The Hornets next play Thursday night on the road against the Eden Prairie Eagles.

    Kelowna Rockets 2 @ Red Deer Rebels 3 (OT) (Saturday)

    Regina Pats 1 @ Swift Current Broncos 3 (Saturday)
    D Libor Hajek, REG: 1-0-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season Totals (REG): 6 GP, 2-3-5, -4, 2 PIM
    Season Totals (SAS): 33 GP, 8-17-25, -10, 26 PIM

    ’16-‘17 Totals: 65 GP: 4-22-26, -17, 81 PIM

    Hajek scored the lone Pats goal, a power play marker to open the scoring in the 1st period. It was Hajek’s 10th goal of the season and his 30th point in less than 40 games. Hajek is now 2-3-5 in six games since being traded to Regina and is really looking like that blueliner Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray touted when Tampa Bay traded Anthony DeAngelo to Arizona at the 2016 NHL Draft for the 2nd round pick. It’s been quite the breakout year for the Czech defenseman. Former Blues prospect and now Flames free agent signee Glenn Gawdin led the way for the victorious Broncos scoring twice for Swift Current, his 38th and 39th of the season, including the game-winning power play goal in the 3rd period. Speaking of breakout seasons, Gawdin sits either #3, #4, or #5 in the WHL in points, goals, assists, power play goals, and power assists, and clocks in #2 in the WHL in plus-minus at +41.

    Brayden Burke (undrafted) gave the Warriors a 1-0 lead at the first intermission, but Tigers three 2nd period goals to take a 3-2 lead into the final frame, where Medicine Hat captain Mark Rassell (undrafted) would score his 42nd of the season and the eventual game-winner. David Quenneville (NYI, 2016 7th round pick), nephew of NHL defenseman Johnny Boychuk, paced the Tigers with two goals and an assist.
