Highlighting Lightning CHL/NCAA prospects on Saturday night was Stan Lascek - again - with a four point night - again. Lascek had a goal and three assists as Chicoutimi got revenge for a recent loss to Halifax by beating the Mooseheads 6-3. With the goal, Lascek's 19th on the year, he surprasses his goal total for last year in just his 27th game. Last season, Lascek had 18 goals in 53 games. The Slovakian winger is averaging more than two points a game and is among the early candidates for QMJHL MVP.

notched his second goal of the year for Red Deer, but the Rebels lost 3-2 to Lethbridge. The Rebels broke their 11 game losing streak the night before with a shootout win against Andy Rogers
and Prince George. Also getting his second goal of the year Saturday night was Chris Lawrence
as Sault Ste. Marie lost in Bellville, 4-1. In other OHL action, Marek Bartanus
was scratched for the second straight game by Owen Sound. The Attack lost 7-1 at home to Peterborough.

That is the fourth time in the last 10 days that a Lightning prospect has been ejected for hitting from behind, joining Andy Rogers, Matt Smaby
, and Radek Smolenak
Also Friday night, Blair Jones
had two goals and earned the game's first star when Moose Jaw crushed Saskatoon 7-3. Also, Justin Keller
