    QMJHL

    Moncton Wildcats 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 2

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hit
    Last Season’s Totals: 68 GP, 14-24-38, -26, 76 PIM

    Milan was plus-1 in the game, fresh off spending training camp with the Lightning. He was awarded for his good play at camp with an NHL contract that will kick in when he turns pro next season. Milan and Phoenix Coyote first rounder Brandon Gormley – who was thought to be a likely choice for the Lightning with their 2010 first rounder – both played for the first time in the game. Gormley had a goal. Shawinigan is the Memorial Cup hosts this season and is ranked No.7 in the country in the latest CHL MasterCard Top-10. Peter Sakaris (undrafted) had both goals for the Cataractes.

    OHL

    Owen Sound Attack 2 @ Barrie Colts 1 (SO)

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 4 GP, 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM

    Schemitsch earned a power play assist on the game tying goal scored early in the third period to help the Attack to a 2-1 shootout win over the home side, Barrie. Schemitsch did not participate in the shootout. Schemitsch had 40 points as an OHL rookie two years ago, but due to injuries and a different role, fell to 20 points last season.

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 0 @ Victoriaville Tigres 8

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 5 PIM

    Ouch. Victoriaville outshot Gatineau 20-3 in the first period while scoring three times. They outshot them again 17-9 in the second and scored four times. They put up the snowman in the third period despite being outshot 16-6. Janosik, who is wearing an A for Gatineau as an assistant captain, was minus-3, tied for second worst on the club. Yanni Gourde (undrafted) had a hat trick for the Tigres.

    Q Note: On Sunday the Lightning assigned recently-signed prospect Daniel Milan to Moncton. Milan had 14 goals and 38 points last year as a rookie with the Wildcats. Milan will make his season debut on Friday.

    OHL

    London Knights 2 @ Guelph Storm 1 (SO)

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, *Third Star*
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 1-1-2, E, 2 PIM

    Namestnikov (pictured) scored his first of the year late in the second period on the power play, then added what turned out to be the shootout winner to lead London to a 2-1 win and 2-0 record on the young season. Seth Griffith, a member of the Lightning prospect team this summer, was the only other Knight to participate in the shootout, but he failed to convert his opportunity.

    OHL

    Saginaw Spirit 5 @ Owen Sound Attack 2

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 3 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM

    This one is hard to figure out. Saginaw got beat 8-0 a night earlier, yet took out the defending league champs in their own barn by three goals. To compound the confusion, the Attack came into the third period down just 2-1, and outshot the Spirit 22-5 in the final 20 minutes, yet were outscored 3-1 in the frame despite having a goaltender who was a third round NHL pick in the summer (Jordan Binnington – Blues). To top it off, Schemitsch, one of the top defensemen for the Attack, was a team-worst minus-3. That’s how it goes sometimes, especially in junior hockey.

    QMJHL

    Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 2 @ Gatineau Olympiques 6

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-2-2, +1, 5 PIM (fighting vs. Xavier Ouellet), 2 SOG, 0 Hit
    Last Season’s Totals: 60 GP, 7-25-32, +17, 37 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 24 GP, 5-4-9, -3, 12 PIM

    Janosik made his 2011-2012 debut for the Olympiques, notching a multi-point night and a fight. Janosik has done well statistically for his native Slovakia in World Junior play, but his stats so far in league play have been mediocre. A breakout year is expected. The Armada is a new franchise in the Q this year. Last year they were the Montreal Junior and before that the St. John’s Fog Devils.

    OHL

    Saginaw Spirit 0 @ London Knights 8

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM (hooking)
    Last Season’s Totals: 68 GP, 30-38-68, +12, 49 PIM
    2011 Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, 6 PIM

    London put a snowman on the scoreboard to start their season, scoring five times in the second period and adding three more in the third. Namestnikov, who was sent back to juniors by the Lightning this week, had one assist in the game, but was one of only three players to fail to finish above even in plus/minus. He was hauled down from behind on a shorthanded breakaway, but no penalty was called. London was paced by Tie Domi’s son, Max, who had a hat trick and an assist in his first OHL game. London first rounder Bo Horvat had a goal and an assist, and Seth Griffith, who participated in the Lightning’s prospect camp early in the summer and again for the Bolts in the Coral Springs prospect tournament, had two goals and was named Third Star. London plays at Guelph Sunday.

    Owen Sound Attack 6 @ Guelph Storm 4

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM

    Defending champion Owen Sound is off to a 2-0 start to the year after beating the Storm in Guelph Friday night 6-4. Schemitsch is scoreless through two games.

    OHL

    Plymouth Whalers 2 @ Owen Sound Attack 6

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +2, 2 PIM (cross checking)
    Last Season’s Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    2011 Playoff Totals: 20 GP, 1-10-11, +5, 2 PIM

    Defending champion Owen Sound opened the 2011-2012 OHL season with a 6-2 win over Plymouth. The Attack scored four times in the second period building 4-0 and 5-1 leads. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch, who arrived in Ontario Tuesday after being sent down from Tampa, was plus-2 in the game. He was named an assistant captain for the Attack earlier in the day Wednesday.

    Schemitsch and Vladislav Namestnikov (London) are the only current Lightning prospects expected to play in the OHL this season. Former Lightning prospect Michael Zador, who was not signed to a contract by Tampa Bay this spring thus relinquishing his rights, finished last season with Owen Sound. He is not currently listed on the Attack or any other OHL roster though he has junior eligibility remaining.

    2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup

    Owen Sound Attack 3 vs. Kootenay Ice 7

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, -3, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 20 GP, 1-10-11, +5, 2 PIM
    Memorial Cup Totals: 4 GP, 0-2-2, -1, 0 PIM

    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not dress.
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 0 SO
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 4-0-0, 1.80 GAA, .940 sv%, 1 SO

    OHL champion Owen Sound was eliminated from the Memorial Cup tonight after losing a tiebreaker game vs. WHL champion Kootenay, 7-3. The Attack beat the Ice 5-0 in their first game of the tournament, but with stars Joey Hishon (Avalanche) and Garret Wilson (Panthers) both out with concussions, they didn’t have a lot to offer. They certainly tried, holding a 2-0 lead after the first period, but Kootenay exploded for three goals in the second period and four in the third to advance to the semifinals vs. tournament host Mississauga.

    This marked the final game of the season for Lightning prospects Geoffrey Schemitsch and Michael Zador. After missing several weeks at the end of the regular season due to a broken arm, Schemitsch was finding his groove late in the playoffs. He is all but set to return to Owen Sound next season. Zador, who didn’t dress again Thursday, likely played his last game as a Lightning prospect. The 2009 draft choice must be signed by June 1 and all indications are he’ll be allowed to re-enter the draft. Zador has great size and superb raw skills, and was drafted in front of Jaroslav Janus by the Bolts, but he just struggles to stop the puck consistently. The signing of NCAA free agent Pat Nagle by the Lightning earlier this spring probably sealed Zador’s fate with the Bolts.

    Speaking of deadlines, we learned from the Lightning today that overager Teigan Zahn of Saskatoon does not have to be signed by June 1 to retain his rights. Zahn, like all of the 2010 draftees, must be given a "bona fide offer" to maintain his rights for another year, but he is not in danger of being lost. The rugged character defenseman is out of junior eligibility so he could be signed by the Lightning's AHL affiliate to a one year contract.

    Today the Norfolk Admirals announced the signing of Adam Janosik's teammate, Philip-Michael Devos of Gatineau, to a two-year AHL contract. Devos was the Q's leading scorer this year with 47 goals and 114 points in 68 games.

    Schemitsch and Zador were the last two Lightning prospects playing this season, so the 2010-2011 prospect season has come to a close. Thank you for your faithful readership and keep up with us for Lightning analysis and pre-draft coverage.

    2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup

    Owen Sound Attack 1 vs. Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 3

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 20 GP, 1-10-11, +5, 2 PIM
    Memorial Cup Totals: 3 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM

    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not dress.
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 0 SO
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 4-0-0, 1.80 GAA, .940 sv%, 1 SO

    Mississauga won Game 8 vs. Owen Sound this post season and as a result earned a trip to the Memorial Cup semifinals. The Attack, who beat the Majors in seven games to win the OHL championship a week ago, now must win a tie-breaker game with Kootenay for the right to play the Majors again. St. John has a bye to the finals. In Wednesday’s game, Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch had his two game point streak snapped. He had his head driven into the boards on a hit that was originally penalized, then rescinded after the refs deemed it legal. Michael Zador took a seat in the bleachers rather than on the bench as recent Rangers signee Scott Stajcer, who played the majority of the playoffs for the Attack, sat backup to 2011 prospect Jordan Binnington (25/27). Owen Sound and Kootenay play Thursday night. The Attack won the first meeting between the clubs at the Memorial Cup, 5-0.

    Owen Sound Attack 2 vs. St. John Sea Dogs 3 (OT)

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 20 GP, 1-10-11, +5, 2 PIM

    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 4-0-0, 1.80 GAA, .940 sv%, 1 SO

    Owen Sound was four minutes away from going 2-0 in the 2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup when St. John’s Tomas Jurco (2011) scored to send the game to overtime. In the extra session likely top-5 pick Jonathan Huberdeau scored for the Sea Dogs to give them the victory. St. John moves to 2-0 in the tournament, Owen Sound is 1-1. The Attack will play tournament host Mississauga (1-1) next. Kootenay is 0-2. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch notched an assist for the second straight tournament game. Michael Zador was backup to Jordan Binnington, who made 41 stops for the Attack.

    2011 MasterCard Memorial Cup

    Owen Sound Attack 5 vs. Kootenay Ice 0

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 20 GP, 1-10-11, +5, 2 PIM
    Memorial Cup Totals: 1 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 0 SO
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 4-0-0, 1.80 GAA, .940 sv%, 1 SO

    The WHL champion Kootenay Ice had stormed through high seeds in the WHL like Saskatoon, Medicine Hat, and Portland, but were handled rather easily by OHL champion Owen Sound and goaltender Jordan Binnington (2011). Binnington is ranked No.3 among North American goalies heading into next month’s draft, but this shutout certainly could help him jump a few spots in the draft. With the Lightning expected to take a goaltender at some time in the draft, he could be a possibility with their second rounder. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch, who started on the third pair, had a helper for the Attack. Michael Zador watched from the bench as backup. The Attack play St. John next on Monday night on NHL Network.

    QMJHL Finals

    No.1 St. John Sea Dogs 3 @ No.5 Gatineau Olympiques 2 (OT)
    St. John leads best of seven series 3-2

    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 7-25-32, +17, 37 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 24 GP, 5-4-9, -3, 12 PIM

    With just under a minute to go in regulation it looked like Lightning prospect Adam Janosik’s fifth goal of the playoffs, scored with just under five minutes to play, would be the game winner in Game 6 and send the QMJHL finals series to seven games, but likely 2011 top-five pick Jonathan Huberdeau scored for St. John with 23 seconds left to send the game to overtime. In the extra session winger Alexandre Beauregard (undrafted) scored his first of the playoffs to give the Sea Dogs the President’s Trophy and a trip to the Memorial Cup in Mississauga.

    Janosik’s season comes to an end with the loss. He finished 11th in scoring among defensemen in the playoffs, and tied for second in goals among rearguards. He didn’t match last year’s point total in the regular season, but set a new career high for playoff points with nine and tied last year’s postseason total for goals at five. The catch is he played in only 10 playoff games last year. All indications are Janosik will return to the Q for another year as he’s not eligible to play in the AHL or ECHL for another year. He won’t turn 20 until September 2012.

    OHL

    OHL Finals

    West No.1 Owen Sound Attack 3 @ East No.1 Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors 2 (OT)
    Owen Sound wins best of seven series 4-3

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    Playoff Totals: 20 GP, 1-10-11, +5, 2 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 0 SO
    Playoff Totals: 6 GP, 4-0-0, 1.80 GAA, .940 sv%, 1 SO

    Rookie Jarrod Maidens scored at 3:27 of overtime in Game 7 to give the Attack the OHL championship. Goals don’t get any bigger than that. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch was on the ice for Owen Sound with the championship winning goal was scored. He had left the game early in the third period due to an apparent injury, but was back on the ice shortly after and nearly created an earlier game winning goal late in the third period by pinching in from his point position and centering the puck into a crowd. The puck got caught in Avalanche first rounder Joey Hishon’s feet and he was unable to slide it into the open side of the net. Michael Zador sat backup to Jordan Binnington (2011) for Owen Sound, who will enter the Memorial Cup tournament as OHL champions. The Attack will play WHL champion Kootenay on May 21 in their tournament opener. Mississauga will play St. John from the QMJHL the night before to begin the tournament. (OHL photo)
