"Big Joe" keeps rolling...
Johan Harju had 2 goals and 1 assist helping Lulea to overcome a 4-1 deficit to defeat Timra 7-5. Both of Harju's goals came at even strength, one into the empty net, and Harju's assist came on the game winning goal with under 6 minutes to play in the game. The 2007 draftee also had 2 penalty minutes in the match.
Harju is currently tied for tenth in the Elitserien in scoring with 10 points in 12 games. His 8 goals on the season tie him for third in the league, and his 3 power play goals ties him with 6 other players, including former Lightning prospect Eero Somervuori, for fourth in the league in markers with the man advantage. Weep at what could have been this season Norfolk fans.
Elsewhere, Andreas Holmqvist had an assist in Frolunda's 5-1 win over Brynas. Holmqvist has 1 goal and 5 points in 13 games this season with 2 penalty minutes and a +4 rating. He has primarily played on Frolunda's top pairing with Ronnie Sundin.
