NA Juniors Game Results

  • 3 years 39 weeks ago

    USHL

    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Fargo Force 4 (SO)
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-2-2, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 46 GP, 20-34-54, +26, 24 PIM

    Mullin had two helpers in regulation then scored in the shootout to help Fargo to a win at home. Both of Mullin’s assists came in the third period – the last shorthanded – as Fargo mounted a comeback on the Storm. The Force improved to 13-10-3 at home; they’re 18-9-1 on the road. They remain tied for third in the West, one point behind Omaha. Tri-City is in the Western Conference cellar.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 4 @ Plymouth Whalers 3
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 1-0-1, +2, 6 PIM (boarding double minor, high sticking)
    With Guelph: 24 GP, 13-12-25, -6, 42 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 51 GP, 27-29-56, -6, 75 PIM

    Panik scored his first goal since returning Friday from a sprained ankle. Guelph, who is now done for the regular season, clinched the Western Conference’s seventh seed and avoided playing top-ranked Owen Sound in the first round. They’ll face Saginaw, who won the West Division. Panik set career highs for goals, assists, points, and PIM.

    London Knights 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 6
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador sat out as Jordan Binnington got his second straight start as top-seeded Owen Sound wanted to get their No.1 going again before the playoffs. With the Attack’s regular season over, it’s unlikely Zador will see much - if any - ice time in the post-season. Schemitsch is could be back when Owen Sound faces London in the first round.

    WHL

    Chilliwack Bruins 4 @ Tri-City Americans 6
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 70 GP, 52-61-113, +26, 48 PIM
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM
    With Tri-City: 32 GP, 17-27-44, +8, 62 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 61 GP, 33-38-71, -4, 106 PIM

    TC finally got the better of Spokane after the Chiefs had beat the Americans five straight times. They also broke the Chiefs' 10 game win streak. Johnson broke a personal two game scoreless streak with his 112th and 113th points of the year. His 52nd goal of the year put him one ahead of Chilliwack’s Ryan Howse (Flames) for the league goal scoring title. Howse is out of games and Johnson’s lead on everyone else is secure. He has one game left and is two points behind Medicine Hat’s Linden Vey (Kings) for the league scoring title and Bob Clarke Trophy. Spokane plays at Portland Sunday; Vey is out of games. Spokane has clinched the three seed. Ashton, meanwhile, scored his 33rd goal of the year Saturday night. He has 17 points in his last 10 games. The Americans, who have clinched the four seed, will play either Chilliwack or Vancouver in the first round depending if the Giants win Sunday.

    Kamloops Blazers 1 @ Prince George Cougars 5
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-2-3, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 59 GP, 46-27-73, -5, 26 PIM

    Connolly extended his point streak to five games with a three point night in the final game of Prince George’s regular season. He has 10 points in those five games. The Cougars will play second-seeded Kelowna, the B.C. Division champion, in the first round. By winning Saturday PG avoided the eighth seed and playing powerhouse Portland. Kelowna had the fourth most points in the conference. After all the talk about Connolly’s durability he played under a microscope of sorts during the season. And while he did miss two weeks with a knee sprain (he was expected to miss a month), he proved to be every bit the offensive weapon he was expected to be when the Lightning chose him sixth overall last summer. His other games missed were due to his inclusion on the Canadian WJC squad. He set career highs for goals and points this year.

    Regina Pats 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 4
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 72 GP, 3-20-23, +39, 133 PIM

    Saskatoon completed their regular season with a win over Regina. Zahn set career highs for games, assists, points, and plus/minus. The Blades captain hopes to raise the Ed Chynoweth Cup at the end of the playoffs as Saskatoon is the clear favorites going into the post-season as the league points champion.

    Season totals: 45 GP, 20-32-52, +26, 24 PIM

    The Storm outshot the Force 35-22 but Mullin’s two points helped Fargo to a 3-1 win. Mullin is tied for ninth in the league in points and fourth in plus/minus.

    QMJHL

    Rimouski Oceanic 1 @ Gatineau Olympiques 3
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 7-24-31, +16, 35 PIM

    Montreal Juniors 3 @ Victoriaville Tigres 2
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG, 1 Hit
    Season Totals: 57 GP, 11-29-40, +26, 30 PIM

    Landry hit the 40-point mark with one game to go in his regular season. Montreal clinched the league’s second-seed with the win. They will play 15 seeded Halifax in the first round.

    OHL

    Owen Sound Attack 5 @ Guelph Storm 2
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM (roughing)
    With Guelph: 23 GP, 12-12-24, -8, 36 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 50 GP, 26-29-55, -8, 69 PIM

    Panik played his first game since February 11 when he suffered a sprained ankle. He’s back for the Storm just in time for the playoffs. Guelph is still in seventh in the West, though eighth place London is two points behind with a game in hand. The eighth place finisher meets top-seeded Owen Sound in the first round. Zador was back on the bench for Owen Sound after starting two games this week and winning them both. Schemitsch is expected back for the Attack’s playoff opener.

    WHL

    Chilliwack Bruins 1 @ Tri-City Americans 5
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-0-1, E, 2 PIM (cross-checking)
    With Tri-City: 31 GP, 16-26-42, +8, 62 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 60 GP, 32-37-69, -4, 106 PIM

    Ashton now has 15 points (7 goals) in March (9 games).

    Prince George Cougars 3 @ Kamloops Blazers 2
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 2-0-2, +1, 0 PIM, *Second Star*
    Season totals: 58 GP, 45-25-70, -4, 26 PIM

    Connolly (pictured) scored twice in the first period to spark Prince George to a 2-0 lead, but Kamloops fought their way back to tie the game and send it to overtime. Connolly failed to convert his shootout attempt. With the win, the Cougars eliminated Kamloops from playoff contention. PG is still hanging on to the eighth spot in the West.

    Seattle Thunderbirds 0 @ Spokane Chiefs 5
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 69 GP, 51-60-111, +26, 48 PIM

    Johnson went scoreless for the second straight game, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal, but he’s trying to catch Medicine Hat’s Linden Vey for the league scoring title. Vey leads by three points. Spokane put up 34 shots on Seattle a game after they peppered Chilliwack goaltender Lucas Gore with 78 shots. Only one went in as the Chiefs beat the Bruins 2-1 in a shootout. Johnson earned three awards, including the Chiefs Player of the Year honor, in a pre-game ceremony on Friday night on the Chiefs Coca-Cola Regular Season Finale. Johnson was named the Chiefs Player of the Year in a pre-game ceremony, and also given the team's Humanitarian of the Year award for the third straight season and the Ken Rabel Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year.

    Saskatoon Blades 3 @ Regina Pats 2 (OT)
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 71 GP, 3-21-24, +39, 133 PIM

    Zahn earned the only assist on Brayden Schenn’s overtime winner for Saskatoon. Though Zahn has 133 penalty minutes on the year, he has only two in his last 11 games. The captain will need to stay out of the box in what looks to be a long Saskatoon playoff run.

    Rimouski Oceanic 2 @ Montreal Juniors 4
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 11-28-39, +25, 30 PIM

    Landry is 18th in the league in scoring among defensemen heading into the final weekend of the season. The Juniors have a four point lead on Quebec for the second seed in the Q with two games remaining.

    OHL

    Kitchener Rangers 3 @ Guelph Storm 4
    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – sprained ankle)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik remains out with a sprained ankle. He is reportedly skating and recently returned home to Slovakia to take a high school equivalency exam. At 73 points and in seventh in the West, Guelph could still technically catch Plymouth (76) for sixth or be caught by London (69) and fall to eighth. London has a game in hand. Guelph will likely play Saginaw in the first round.

    Plymouth Whalers 3 @ Owen Sound Attack 4 (OT)
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Win, 30 saves on 33 shots
    With Attack: 13 GP, 9-2-0-0, 3.06 GAA, .900 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 19-5-1-1, 3.23 GAA, .888 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador (pictured) earned a second straight start for his First Star effort against London and won again, this time beating Plymouth in overtime. Zador, who is approaching 20 wins on the season, will likely see more time in net as Owen Sound has already clinched the West’s top seed. They’ll likely play London in the first round. Schemitsch is expected back for the playoffs.

    WHL

    Everett Silvertips 2 @ Tri-City Americans 1
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM (goaltender interference, tripping)
    With Tri-City: 30 GP, 15-26-41, +8, 60 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 59 GP, 31-37-68, -4, 104 PIM

    Ashton has 14 points (6 goals) in March. He has 17 PIM in his last four games. TC is basically locked in as the West’s 4-seed. They’ll likely play either Chilliwack or Vancouver.

    Chilliwack Bruins 1 @ Spokane Chiefs 2 (SO)
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 0-0-0, -1, 4 PIM (high sticking, hooking)
    Season Totals: 68 GP, 51-60-111, +26, 48 PIM

    Johnson didn’t find the scoresheet in regulation or overtime Wednesday, but scored in the shootout to help the Chiefs defeat Chilliwack. The Chiefs, who will be the 3-seed in the West, will likely play Vancouver or Chilliwack in the first round.

    Moose Jaw Warriors 2 @ Saskatoon Blades 3 (SO)
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 70 GP, 3-20-23, +38, 133 PIM

    Saskatoon, who has already clinched the league’s best record, won the shootout 2-0. Zahn has been at least plus-1 in his last six games. He is plus-16 in that span.

    BCHL Interior Conference Semifinals – Game 5

    Salmon Arm Silverbacks 4 @ Penticton Vees 2
    Silverbacks win Best of 7 series 4-1

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-1-1, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 6 GP, 1-4-5, 9 PIM

    Penticton’s season came to an end Monday when they lost their third game at home in their second round series to upstart goalie Kris Moore and Salmon Arm. O’Donnell had an assist on the Vees’ final goal, which was scored at the four minute mark of the third period to cut the Silverbacks’ lead to 4-2. Salmon Arm scored twice in 14 seconds early in the third period to go up 4-1. Penticton finished two points ahead of Salmon Arm in the regular season. The Silverbacks are now 8-1 in the playoffs.

    O’Donnell finished second on the Vees in scoring during the regular season and represented Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge. While he missed three playoff games due to an injury sustained in a fight, he was nearly a point-per-gamer for the postseason. He’ll be donning the green of the University of North Dakota the next time we see him.

    QMJHL

    Gatineau Olympiques 8 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 5
    D Adam Janosik, GAT: 0-2-2, +3, 2 PIM (cross-checking), 3 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 7-24-31, +16, 35 PIM

    Janosik has three points in his last two games. Gatineau looks like they’ll be locked into the fifth seed in the league under the new playoff format, meaning they’d play the 12 seed, which right now is Chicoutimi. Teams are re-seeded after each round.

    Baie-Comeau Drakkar 0 @ Montreal Juniors 7
    D Charles Landry, MTL: 0-1-1, +2, 2 PIM (roughing), 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 55 GP, 11-28-39, +24, 30 PIM

    The Drakkar would have squeaked this one out – if they counted B-C's shots (13) vs. Montreal’s goals (7). Montreal scored five times in the first period on 16 shots. The Juniors are now up three points on Drummondville for the TELUS West Division title, with Montreal having a game in hand. Division winners get the first three seeds of the 16 teams that make the playoffs in the Q. Teams 4-16 are then seeded by total points.

    WHL

    Prince George Cougars 3 @ Tri-City Americans 6
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 57 GP, 43-25-68, -5, 26 PIM
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 2-1-3, E, 4 PIM (high sticking, roughing), *First Star*
    With Tri-City: 29 GP, 15-26-41, +8, 56 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 58 GP, 31-37-68, -4, 100 PIM

    In a match-up of probable future linemates with the Lightning, Carter Ashton got the better of Brett Connolly in goals, points, and the win column. Ashton set a new career high with his 30th and 31st goals of the season. He also tied Connolly in points for the season and hit the 100 penalty minute mark. Not a bad night for the big guy. Connolly, meanwhile, scored his 43rd goal of the season. Connolly broke his previous career high for goals in a year 12 goals ago.

    BCHL Interior Conference Semifinals – Game 4

    Penticton Vees 4 @ Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3
    Silverbacks lead Best of 7 series 3-1

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 1-3-4, 9 PIM

    Penticton staved off elimination by finally beating Silverbacks goaltender Kris Moore twice in both the first period and twice again in the second. The Vees allowed two third period goals to make a dramatic last 10 minutes of the game. After badly outshooting Salmon Arm in Games 1-3, Penticton was outshot by one in Game 4. The series now shifts to Penticton for Game 5 Monday.

    USHL

    Lincoln Stars 4 @ Fargo Force 7
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 8 SOG
    Season totals: 44 GP, 19-31-50, +24, 24 PIM

    Fargo got some revenge on Lincoln for shutting the Force out in their last game. Mullin’s eight shots led the team. Fargo is back in a tie for third in the West, though Sioux Falls has two games in hand on them.

    OHL

    London Knights 2 @ Owen Sound Attack 5
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Win, 29 saves on 31 shots, *First Star*
    With Attack: 12 GP, 8-2-0-0, 3.08 GAA, .899 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 30 GP, 18-5-1-1, 3.25 GAA, .887 sv%, 1 SO

    In his first game in nearly a month, Zador was named First Star for the Attack in a win over London. Zador, who normally sits backup in Owen Sound, suffered a concussion in warm-ups vs. London a few weeks ago. Schemitsch is reportedly skating again and should be back by the playoffs.

    WHL

    Prince George Cougars 5 @ Seattle Thunderbirds 1
    RW Brett Connolly, PG: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM, *First Star*
    Season totals: 56 GP, 42-25-67, -5, 26 PIM

    The Cougars earned their second big win a row, defeated Seattle 5-1 Saturday night in Washington. Prince George beat Vancouver 8-0 on Friday night. Connolly had a goal and an assist in both games. The Cougars are up to seventh in the West, and more importantly three points up on ninth-place Kamloops with a game in hand.

    Kootenay Ice 3 @ Spokane Chiefs 4 (SO)
    C Tyler Johnson, SPO: 1-1-2, -1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 67 GP, 51-60-111, +27, 44 PIM

    Johnson has goals in four of his last five games after picking up his league-leading 51st of the year Saturday night. He hit the 60 assist and 110 point markers during the game, too. He also pulled within three points of Linden Vey for the league lead in points. Spokane let a two goal lead evaporate late and needed the shootout to win. Johnson was the first shooter for the Chiefs, but failed to convert his attempt. Spokane has clinched at least the third seed in the West.

    Edmonton Oil Kings 0 @ Saskatoon Blades 4
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 69 GP, 3-20-23, +36, 133 PIM

    Zahn has at least one assist in four of his last five games.

    C/W Richard Panik, GUE: Did not play (injured – sprained ankle)
    With Guelph: 22 GP, 12-12-24, -6, 34 PIM
    With Belleville: 27 GP, 14-17-31, E, 33 PIM
    Season totals: 49 GP, 26-29-55, -6, 67 PIM

    Panik remains out with a sprained ankle. He was expected to return this week.

    Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Windsor Spitfires 4 (SO)
    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: Did not play (injured - broken arm)
    Season totals: 45 GP, 1-19-20, +17, 14 PIM
    G Michael Zador, OS: Did not play (backup)
    With Attack: 11 GP, 7-2-0-0, 3.19 GAA, .895 sv%, 0 SO
    With Oshawa: 18 GP, 10-3-1-1, 3.36 GAA, .879 sv%, 1 SO
    Season Totals: 29 GP, 17-5-1-1, 3.29 GAA, .885 sv%, 1 SO

    Zador (pictured) was back on the Attack bench after missing a few games due to a concussion sustained when he took a shot to the head in warm-ups.

    BCHL Interior Conference Semifinals – Game 2

    Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3 @ Penticton Vees 2
    Silverbacks lead Best of 7 series 2-0

    C Brendan O’Donnell, PEN: 1-1-2, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 3 GP, 1-3-4, 5 PIM

    O’Donnell had a goal and an assist, but the story of the game and the series thus far was undrafted goaltender Kris Moore of Salmon Arm. For the second straight game the Vees outshot the Silverbacks by nearly a 2-to-1 margin, but Moore, who lists former Lightning goaltender Corey Schwab as his greatest hockey influence in his player profile, made 40 saves and stole Game 2 for the underdogs. The series now heads the Silverbacks’ barn with the Vees in a big hole.

    USHL

    Sioux Falls Stampede 7 @ Fargo Force 2
    C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM, 8 SOG
    Season totals: 42 GP, 19-29-48, +23, 24 PIM

    Mullin broke a two game scoreless streak, but the Force was hammered at home in an important game, 7-2 by Sioux Falls. The teams entered the game tied for third in the Western Conference at 60 points with Sioux Falls holding a game in hand. Fargo now sits alone in fourth, one point behind Omaha.

    WHL

    Tri-City Americans 1 @ Kelowna Rockets 3
    RW Carter Ashton, TC: 1-0-1, E, 4 PIM (high sticking, hooking)
    With Tri-City: 27 GP, 13-25-38, +8, 47 PIM
    With Regina: 29 GP, 16-11-27, -12, 44 PIM
    Season Totals: 56 GP, 29-36-65, -4, 91 PIM

    Ashton’s streak of four games with at least two points came to an end, but he did manage his 29th goal of the season to put him within one of his career high of 30 – again. He thought he had his 29th goal two games ago, but a late scoring change took it away. Ashton’s goal Wednesday tied the game at one in Kelowna, but that’s all TC could manage. Rockets captain Tyson Barrie, son of former Lightning owner Len Barrie and once thought to be a certain draft target of the Barrie/Koules Bolts, had an assist in the game for Kelowna. The Avalanche draft pick has 54 points (10 goals) in 49 games this year.

    Saskatoon Blades 5 @ Brandon Wheat Kings 3
    D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, +3, 2 PIM (holding)
    Season totals: 67 GP, 3-19-22, +33, 133 PIM

    Zahn has quietly established a career high for points in a season at 22. His plus-33 rating is “just” 28 better than his previous career high in that category. The overager and captain of the WHL’s top team is hoping for a contract at the end of the season from the Lightning. He has five points in his last three games and is plus-11 in those three games.

    Season totals: 58 GP, 29-43-72, 28 PIM
    Playoff totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2, 5 PIM

    O’Donnell returned after missing games 2-4 of the Vees’ first round series with Quesnel, but Penticton was shocked at home in Game 1 vs. Salmon Arm, 3-1. Penticton outshot the Silverbacks 41-22, but was stymied by goaltender Kris Moore (undrafted). Game 2 is tonight (Wednesday) in Penticton.

    Ashton had two assists in the first period to help TC to an early 2-0 lead, but the Ams had to fight back with three third period goals, including one in the last minute, to win the game. Ashton has a four game multipoint streak going in which he’s scored 10 total points. He has 13 points in his last seven games. He was originally listed with two goals and an assist in his last game against Vancouver, but that has been changed to one goal and three assists. Ashton’s career high for goals in a season in 30.

    Ouch. While Red Deer is second overall in the league, losing on home ice 7-0 is embarrassing any way you cut it. The Cougars, who were once comfortably in the playoff picture, are now tied for the eighth and final spot in the West at 62 points. They do have a game in hand on Kamloops, with whom they are tied, but Seattle is at 59 points and has a game in hand on Prince George. The Cougars are 1-8-0-1 in their last 10 games and need to turn things around. As captain of his home town team, there’s no doubt Connolly doesn’t want to go out like this. Likely 2011 top-3 pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal and three assists Tuesday for Red Deer.
