    Robert Morris Colonials 0 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 4

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-1-1, +1, 2 PIM (slashing), 3 SOG
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM

    Quinnipiac improved to 2-0 on the year with a shutout win over the Colonials. Lightning prospect Matthew Peca earned his first point of the season, an assist. Eric Hartzell (undrafted) made 16 saves in the Quinnipiac nets for the shutout.

    St. Lawrence Saints 2 @ No.10 Western Michigan Broncos 3

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2, E, 2 PIM

    The Broncos exacted a bit of revenge on the Saints, who beat WMU in overtime on Friday night. Lightning prospect and WMU captain Luke Witkowski (pictured) notched his first two points of the season, including an assist on the game-tying goal scored by Lightning target Danny DeKeyser. The Lightning pursued DeKeyser, a free agent, late last year and along with the Red Wings were thought to be a finalist to sign him until he decided to return to school for his junior season. DeKeyser and Witkowski are partners on the ice and roommates off the ice.

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    Miami opened their season with a non-conference win over Colgate. Freshman Ryan McKay made 24 saves for the shoutout win. McKay (undrafted) was the goaltending partner of Lightning prospect Adam Wilcox for USHL Green Bay to start last season before Wilcox was moved to Tri-City.

    USA U-18 4 @ No. 4 North Dakota Fighting Sioux 6 (exhibition)

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, E, 7 PIM (slashing, checking from behind major, game misconduct), 0 SOG

    UND got two goals from Panthers prospect Rocco Grimaldi, who like Brendan O’Donnell, missed considerable time last season due to injury.

    Michigan State Spartans 1 @ No. 2 Minnesota Golden Gophers 6

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Did not play

    Freshman Adam Wilcox watched as sophomore Michael Shibrowski got the start for the Gophers. The two are expected to split time during the first few weeks of the season. Nick Bjugstad (Panthers) had a goal and an assist to be named first star for the game.

    Michigan State Spartans 1 @ No.2 Minnesota Golden Gophers 7

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 10 saves on 11 shots
    Season totals: 1-0-0, 1.00 GAA, .909 sv%, 0 SO

    Freshman Adam Wilcox made his first collegiate start and stopped 10 of 11 shots against the Spartans. Wilcox last played for Tri-City of the USHL. He is expected to share time in the Minnesota nets with Gophers junior Michael Shibrowski (undrafted) to start the year.

    St. Lawrence Saints 4 @ No. 10 Western Michigan Broncos 3 (OT)

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

WMU scored twice in the third period to force overtime, including a goal with 31 seconds left in regulation. Junior Jeremy Wick (undrafted) had the game winner for St. Lawrence. It was his fourth career goal.

    Western Ontario Mustangs 2 @ No. 9 Miami RedHawks 6 (exhibition)

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    2011-2012 season totals: 37 GP, 11-15-26, +17, 10 PIM

    On Saturday, Western Ontario stunned Western Michigan University, tying them, 2-2. Miami took them seriously from the get-go, outshooting the Mustangs 16-4 in the first and 49-14 for the game. Mullin (pictured), now a sophomore, had a goal and an assist and his linemate, 2012 Lightning prospect camper Austin Czarnik, had a pair of goals. The third member of that line, Riley Barber (Capitals), had three helpers. Miami opens Friday against Colgate.

    Acadia Axemen 2 @ Quinnipiac Bobcats 0 (exhibition)

    F Matthew Peca, QU: Did not play
    Season totals: 1 GP, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM

  • 2 years 47 weeks ago

    Quinnipiac Bobcats 2 @ No. 15 Maine Black Bears 1

    2011-2012 Season totals: 39 GP, 8-31-39, E, 12 PIM

    Quinnipiac started their season off on the right note by going into Maine and defeating the Black Bears, 2-1, in a non-conference match-up. Peca was held off the scoresheet, but is expected to be a big contributor to the Bobcats success this year. Maine outshot QU, 32-18. Bobcats goalie Eric Hartzell (undrafted), a senior, made 31 saves in the win. Quinnipiac plays an exhibition game on Sunday against Acadia. Quinnipiac received the 23rd most votes in the latest USCHO poll.

    Manitoba 3 @ No. 4 North Dakota Fighting Sioux 5 (exhibition)

    F Brendan O’Donnell, UND: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG

    O’Donnell made his return to the Sioux lineup after missing most of last season with a shoulder injury. He didn’t figure into the scoring in UND’s first exhibition game of the year. They will play another exhibition game next Friday against the USA Under-18 squad. Now a sophomore, O’Donnell had five goals and an assist in 17 games last year before getting hurt.

    Lethbridge Pronghorns 0 @ No. 2 Minnesota Golden Gophers 7 (exhibition)

    G Adam Wilcox, MIN: 7 saves on 7 shots, shared shutout

    Freshman Adam Wilcox (pictured) played the second half of Minnesota’s exhibition win over the University of Lethbridge, stopping all seven shots he faced. Wilcox starred for Tri-City in the USHL last year after a trade from Green Bay. Sophomore Michael Shibrowski started the game for the Gophers and made nine saves in 29:30. Christian Isackson (Sabres) had three goals for Minnesota.

    Western Ontario Mustangs 2 @ No. 10 Western Michigan Broncos 2 (exhibition)

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM (interference, elbowing, unsportsmanlike conduct), 2 SOG

    No. 14 Cornell Big Red 1 vs. No. 9 Ferris State Bulldogs 2
    NCAA Midwest Regional Final

    D/W Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 24 GP, 1-7-8, +13, 12 PIM

    Ferris State senior Jordie Johnson (undrafted) scored in the seventh minute of the third period to break a 1-1 tie and propel the Bulldogs to their first Frozen Four. Gotovets had the only assist on Cornell’s lone goal. He finishes the year with eight point in 24 games. More will be expected of the Belarusian next year as an upperclassman. Gotovets may not be completely done for the season as he could suit up for Belarus in the World Championships later this spring as he’s done the last two years.

    No. 4 North Dakota Fighting Sioux 3 vs. No. 12 Western Michigan Broncos 1
    NCAA West Regional Semifinal

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM (hitting after the whistle), 1 SOG
    Season totals: 40 GP, 2-11-13, +8, 66 PIM

    WMU’s postseason run came to an end Saturday afternoon, falling 3-1 to top-seeded North Dakota. The Broncos scored to make the game 2-1 and appeared to get the tying goal, but it was ruled no-goal. The puck appeared to bounce in off a net-crashing forward while a Sioux player was sliding into the post and knocking the net off. It was ruled no goal and UND added an empty net goal late to give the game its final score. Witkowki and NCAA free agent partner Dan DeKeyser were on the ice in the last minute trying to get the game tied. Witkowski appeared to hesitate when deciding to pinch in at the blueline to keep the puck in, and when he finally did he was a little too late and lost a one-on-one battle along the wall. The UND player got around him and scored into an empty net. It’s a tough play for the junior alternate captain, who has been fantastic all year on the back end. It was reported this week that he will return to school for his senior season. He has a good chance to be named captain. Witkowski set a career high for points in a season and could breakout on offense next year. DeKeyser had an assist in the game and was strong throughout. There have been mixed signals as to whether the sophomore will leave school and turn pro. The Lightning are one of a few teams thought to be leaders for him. Detroit and Toronto are the others.

    Note: With Gotovets and Witkowski seeing their seasons end on Saturday, it means no Lightning prospect will be playing in the Frozen Four taking place in Tampa. Brendan O'Donnell's Fighting Sioux could still make it, but O'Donnell is out for the season due to injury. A final review of Lightning NCAA prospects will be posted in the coming days.

    D/W Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, , 0 PIM, 3 SOG
    Season totals: 23 GP, 1-6-7, +13, 12 PIM

    Upset city, baby! Cornell got an overtime winner from undrafted Rodger Craig (no, not that Roger Craig) to propel Cornell into the Midwest Regional finals against Ferris State, who beat Denver, 2-1.

    No. 13 UMass-Lowell Riverhawks 4 vs. No. 7 Miami RedHawks 3 (OT)
    NCAA East Regional Semifinal

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 37 GP, 11-15-26, +17, 10 PIM

    Another upset. The Riverhawks skated out to a 3-0 lead entering the third period before Miami decided to play, outshooting UML 18-8 in the final frame while scoring three times. Miami even had a five minute power play to end regulation, but they couldn’t get the game winner. That was scored by UML’s Riley Wetmore (undrafted), 2:13 into overtime. UML will face Union in the East Region finals for the right to go to the Frozen Four in Tampa. Union knocked off Michigan State, 3-1. Mullin ends an outstanding freshman season with 11 goals and 26 points. He spent the majority of the year on the RedHawks’ top line and will be relied upon for his offense next season in Oxford.

    Colgate Raiders 0 @ No. 13 Cornell Big Red 3
    ECAC Consolation

    D/W Kirill Gotovets, COR: 0-0-0, , 0 PIM, 1 SOG
    Season totals: 22 GP, 1-6-7, +13, 12 PIM

    Gotovets was back on defense after playing forward in Cornell’s semifinal loss to Harvard on Friday. He registered one shot on goal as Cornell took the Consolation Game win in Atlantic City.

    No. 19 Harvard Crimson 1 @ Union Dutchmen 3
    ECAC Semifinals

    F Alex Killorn, HAR: 1-0-1, E, 0 PIM, 6 SOG
    Season totals: 34GP, 23-23-46, +13, 47 PIMs

    In what was probably his final collegiate game, Alex Killorn scored his team’s only goal and led the Crimson with five shots on net, but Harvard lost to Union 3-1 in the ECAC Championship Game. It was Union’s first ECAC title. Any slim shot Harvard had at getting an invitation to the big dance went by the wayside when Union and Western Michigan both got automatic bids. Killorn came back to school for his senior year to do just this – have a strong offensive campaign and lead his team to new heights. Hopefully he holds his head high. The Killorn contract watch now begins, as he’s a lock to sign his name on the dotted line with the Lightning. It’s just a matter of when.

    No. 7 Miami RedHawks 4 vs. Bowling Green Falcons 1
    CCHA Consolation

    F Jimmy Mullin, MIA: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
    Season totals: 35 GP, 11-15-26, +17, 10 PIM

    After a tough loss to Western Michigan in the semifinals Friday, Miami defeated upstart Bowling Green in the CCHA Consolation Game. Miami is a lock for the national tournament and will await their seeding on Sunday.

    Note: Brendan O’Donnell (North Dakota) is out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery. North Dakota won their third straight WCHA tournament championship.

    No. 3 Michigan Wolverines 2 vs. No. 14 Western Michigan Broncos 3
    CCHA Finals

    D Luke Witkowski, WMU: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season totals: 39 GP, 2-11-13, +8, 47 PIM

    Fear the beard. Witkowski and Western Michigan won their first CCHA tournament title since 1986 as they held on to beat Michigan, 3-2. Witkowski was strong all night with his partner, free agent Dan DeKeyser. Witkowski’s dump-in and the hybrid icing rule led to the eventual game-winning goal, scored in the closing minutes of the second period. Witkowski, who came into the game with seven points in his last eight games, was beaten one-on-one for Michigan’s first goal, which came while WMU was on the power play, but was strong in his own zone as the Broncos killed off a five-minute major penalty that ended with three minutes to go. He was very poised and strong on the puck in his own end, and at one point in the final minute enabled a clear when he beat two Wolverines to a loose puck while he was on his knees after breaking up the previous play. During the broadcast, Fox Sports Detroit said WMU coach Andy Murray mentioned that all six WMU defensemen would be back next year. The announcers didn’t seem to put a ton of stock in the comment, but it’s the first indication that DeKeyser – and Witkowski – are staying in school. DeKeyser, who was named to the CCHA All-Tournament team, will be offered a contract from most every NHL team and Witkowski has played well enough to start a contract conversation among the Lightning brass. Time will tell, but right now Witkowski, his beard – which got a kiss from the Broncos backup goaltender during the celebration, and WMU will wait and see what damage they can do in the national tournament. They earned an automatic bid with the tournament championship. (Luke's photo from his Twitter feed, @LWitko28)

    Killorn and Harvard continued their magical run, beating the favored Big Red 6-1 on Friday to earn a trip to the ECAC finals against top-seeded Union. Harvard scored the game’s first six goals, with Killorn getting numbers two and five. Cornell added a late goal. Lightning prospect Kirill Gotovets spent time at wing, which he has done a handful of times this year. Harvard has to beat Union on Saturday to get into the national tournament. Cornell, who will play in the Third Place Game on Saturday, is considered on the bubble.

    Witkowski logged a ton of minutes and for a moment or two had was credited with an important goal for WMU as the Broncos upset Miami to advance to the CCHA Finals against Michigan, who beat Cinderella Bowling Green in double overtime. Witkowski took a feed in the high slot while on the power play, skated a couple of strides, and fired a low wrist shot that found its way to the twine but it was later ruled to have hit the shaft of the stick of teammate Will Kessel (undrafted). Witkowski and defensive partner Dan DeKeyser, a free agent target of the Lightning, played nearly every key shift in the game for the Broncos and matched-up against Lightning prospect Jimmy Mullin’s high-powered line for much of the game. Mullin created a few scoring chances and had his name announced for an assist on Miami's first goal, but it was later corrected. Mullin was one of the few RedHawks who was generating chances. Mullin will continue his season in Saturday's Third Place Game, then on the road to the Frozen Four in Tampa as the RedHawks are considered a lock for an invitation. WMU is on the bubble, but can punch their ticket with a win over the Wolverines at Joe Louis Arena Saturday night.

    Season totals: 32GP, 20-22-42, +10, 47 PIMs

    After games one and two had three overtimes between them, 3-seed Harvard blew out their hated rivals in Game 3, 8-2. Killorn factored in on four of Harvard’s first five goals after getting down 1-0 early to the Bulldogs. Game stars haven’t been posted yet, but Killorn’s a sure bet to be at least second star. David Valek (undrafted) had a hat trick for Harvard, who advances to the ECAC semifinals in Atlantic City. Killorn will matchup against fellow Lightning prospect Kirill Gotovets and second-seeded Cornell.

    Quinnipiac Bobcats 0 @ Colgate Raiders 4
    ECAC Quarterfinals: Colgate wins best-of-3 series 2-1

    F Matthew Peca, QU: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 4 SOG
    Season totals: 39 GP, 8-31-39, E, 12 PIM

    Colgate didn’t leave much doubt when eliminating Quinnipiac in Game 3 on Sunday. The Raiders took a 3-0 lead into the third period and Eric Mihalik (undrafted) made 13 of his 21 saves in the third period to help Colgate advance to the ECAC semifinals to play Union. Peca’s seven-game point streak came to an end. With the loss, Quinnipiac's season is complete. Congratulations to the Bobcats for a fine year and to Peca, who was outstanding in his first collegiate season.

    Note: In the CCHA, with No.1 Ferris State being upset on Sunday in overtime, Western Michigan (Luke Witkowski) will face Miami (Jimmy Mullin) at Joe Louis Arena in the semifinals next weekend.
