Quebec Major Junior Hockey League
Shawinigan Cataractes 3 @ Quebec Remparts 6
W/C Adam Erne, QUE: 1-2-3, +1, 0 PIM, 2 Hits, 6 SOG, 10/10 FO, *Second Star*
2013-2014 Season: 48 GP, 21-41-62, -3, 65 PIM
Erne made his 2014-2015 debut for the Remparts and was second star for scoring a goal and adding a pair of helpers. His goal was unassisted and came shorthanded. Quebec went 2-3 in the five games Erne was with the Lightning prior to the NHL club reassigning him to juniors. Erne can play in the AHL next season if he doesn’t make the NHL, but is too young this year. He is expected to have a huge season in Quebec City as long as he can stay healthy. He was a center last year for Quebec, but was listed as a left wing on the official scoresheet on Sunday. He did take 10 faceoffs, however, which was third-most on the team. Erne was one of three players wearing alternate captain’s A’s on Sunday for Quebec. He was an alternate captain last year.

Guelph Storm 2 @ Windsor Spitfires 1
W Cristiano DiGiacinto, WSR: Did not play
2013-14 totals: 50 GP, 17-11-28, +8, 101 PIM
DiGiacinto did not play as he continues to serve a 5-game suspension received in Game 3 of last year’s playoffs vs London. DiGiacinto started a fight with London’s Gemel Smith as the two skated up the ice, which turned into a line brawl. London Coach and General Manager Mark Hunter compared the confrontation to the Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident and the OHL agreed, giving DiGiacinto a 5-game ban for “bullying.” He is now three games into his 5-game timeout.
