D UMASS John Wessbecker 0-1-1, +1, 1 SOG, 2 PIM
#11 UMASS gets back to the HEAST schedule this coming Saturday against #8 New Hampshire.
In 14 games this season Wessbecker has 3 assists, an even rating and 2 PIM.
As expected, Lightning 2007 second round pick Dana Tyrell has been named to Team Canada's 2008 World Junior Championship Selection Camp roster.
Tyrell, who played for Canada in their SuperSeries vs. Russia this past summer, currently has 14 goals and 19 assists for 33 points in 29 games for Prince George of the WHL.

You know what's a shame? Other than giving up 3 unanswered goals in the span of about six minutes to blow another two points the team could've had? What if Adam Henrich had approached his career with this kind of urgency when he was 20-21 years old?

Saturday night's highlights:
The Canadian Press is reporting that Hockey Canada will announce the roster of 35 players who will compete in camp beginning December 14th for spots on the roster for this year's Canadian U20 World Junior Championships team. Lightning prospect Dana Tyrell is likely to make the roster having played for Canada on the highly successful SuperSeries team that steamrolled through that tournament earlier this year.
The Sea Wolves split a pair games on the road this weekend in Augusta and Charlotte, picking up the team's first road win of the season.
Radek Smolenak picks up the game-winner in the win against Charlotte on Saturday night as Ryan Munce stops 26 enroute to the victory. Brandon Elliott racked up fightning majors in back-to-back games giving three FMs in the three games, and Stan Lascek picked up a marker in Friday night's loss in Augusta.
