From QMJHL website:
BOUCHERVILLE, Wednesday, November 2, 2005 (QMJHL) â€“ The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League today announced the winners of the offensive, defensive and rookie player of the month awards for November following a list of candidates submitted by the eighteen QMJHL teams. A League mandated committee is responsible for picking the monthly winners.
The offensive player of the month is Stanislav Lascek of the Chicoutimi SaguenÃ©ens. The winger had quite a showing in November, tallying 5 goals as well as 26 assists, good for 31 points in only twelve games. He presently leads the League in scoring with 67 points. Furthermore, he was a very healthy +15 (plus/minus). His offensive prowess enabled the SaguenÃ©ens to claim the top spot in the overall standings.
Radek Smolenak had two assists for Kingston Wednesday night, helping the Frontenacs to a 4-3 overtime win over East Division Rival Belleville. Smolenak's assists came in the first and second periods. With 32 points in 27 games, Kingston remains in second in the East, well back of Peterborough (41 in 24) and ahead of Ottawa (27 in 27). Belleville is fourth with 24 points in 26 games.
Alternate Captain Justin Keller and Team WHL made Team Russia's trip through Canada even more unpleasant Wednesday night, crushing the Russian select squad 9-2. Russia is now 0-5 in the ADT Canada/Russia Challenge and must face the powerful WHL squad again tonight in Regina, Saskatchewan. Despite piling up 9 goals against the Russians, including 8 in the first two periods, the WHL received no scoring from Keller. Keller started the game on a line with Dustin Boyd and fellow Kelowna Rocket Blake Comeau. The line combined for no points and all three had even ratings. The WHL outshot the Russians 41-19 for the game.
Like pulling teeth...
John Grahame stopped 20 of 21 for the victory in a night checking game that often resembled a rugby scrum.
Paul Ranger notched an assist on a good crisp breakout pass that Vincent Lecavalier quickly moved up to Marin St. Louis who broke in for a goal on Ed Belfour. Ranger played 16:43 tonight and was +1 although he did take two minor penalties. It seems to me he's struggled a bit in his own zone in the past week or so as forwards physically challenge him along the wall. Plays where he was effectively slipping checks last month he's getting caught by forecheckers now and they're testing him.
Evgeny Artyukhin with a physical 7:34 of ice time in which he registered 3 hits.
