Johan Harju was scoreless in 15:55 of ice time as Dynamo Moscow fell to CSKA 3-2 in overtime in Harju's Russian debut. Harju, who was versatile in his time in the Swedish Elitserien, played center today and was 53% on draws.

CHL Exhibition Update

In recent CHL exhibition action:

Richard Panik (2009 2nd) had a goal and three assists in a 5-3 Windsor exhibition win over Plymouth Saturday afternoon. Panik has three goals and five assists in his first two North American games. And he's not even playing next to likely 2010 No.1 overall pick Taylor Hall yet. Panik couldn't be in a better situation. He's playing for a coach (Bob "The Boogie Man" Boughner) and GM (Warren Rychel) who were both hard-nosed, disciplined players and expect the same out of their Spitfire players. As the defending Memorial Cup and OHL champions, and expected 2010 champion for both, the Spits will be in Canada's spotlight and have targets on their backs all year. They'll get everyone's A-game defensively. This should help Panik speed his development for NHL play. Finally, he'll be surrounded by players such as Hall, Ryan Ellis, and Cam Fowler, which means he has a very high statistical ceiling. This will be fun to watch.

Goaltender Jaroslav Janus made his exhibition debut for Erie Saturday, stopping 31 shots in a 4-4 tie with Niagara. Janus can return to Erie this year as an overager, though there was speculation he'd go to Europe or be signed by the Lightning and placed in the Central League or assigned to an ECHL team. It's good to see him back with the Otters, even if it's just to get work before Tampa Bay's rookie camp this week.

The "other" 2009 Lightning first rounder, Carter Ashton, had an assist for Lethbridge in preseason action Friday.

Matias Sointu, who is making his North American debut with Ottawa this year, has one assist through two exhibition games for the 67's. Sointu missed most of last season with an injury in Finland.

The Q opens regular season play this week, so look for BoltProspects' Game Night summaries to appear shortly.

Welcome to North America, Mr. Panik

(Windsor Star) It may not always be the case when it comes to their cars, but Windsorites sure like European imports on the ice. Slovakian winger (and Lightning 2009 second rounder) Richard Panik set about making fans forget about the loss of slick Russian centre Andrei Loktionov to the Los Angeles Kings with an impressive display of power, speed and trickery. Panik was simply the best player on the ice by a wide margin in scoring a pair of goals and adding two assists in Windsor's 5-3 win over the Sarnia Sting in the exhibition-season opener for both clubs Thursday. For the rest of the story, see the Windsor Star by [url=http://www2.canada.com/windsorstar/news/sports/story.html?id=648315d7-a3ee-4d29-834d-a4d4ac9dc565]clicking here[/url]. (Star photo)

Rimouski's Season Ends with Third Period Collapse

[b][i]N.A. Juniors Memorial Cup Game Night: 5/21[/b][/i] [b] Windsor Spitfires 6 vs. Rimouski Oceanic 4 [/b] (Tiebreaker) [i]W/C [b][url=/luca-cunti]Luca Cunti[/url][/b], RIM: 0-0-0,+1, 0 PIM, 0 SOG [/i] MemCup totals: 4 GP, 2-0-2, -2, 2 PIM Playoff totals: 13 GP, 4-5-9, -2, 12 PIM Season totals: 57 GP, 20-25-45, +10, 32 PIM Rimouski couldn’t hold on to a 4-2 lead entering the third period - giving up three quick goals to the Spitfires in just over 3 ½ minutes - and now their season and Memorial Cup experience is officially over. Cunti was rather quiet on the night, but did create some scoring chances with his vision and speed. He had at least one Grade A scoring chance when he broke in alone on Windsor goalie Andrew Engelage, but he failed to shoot quickly and had the puck knocked off his stick. Cunti’s first full season of play since his time in Europe two years ago started slowly, but when he got going, Cunti was a force offensively. He has a large mountain to climb to learn the physical, 2-way North American game that the Lightning would like to see from him, but he certainly has a foundation to work with. He is eligible to be signed and spend next year in the minors, but his next step remains up in the air right now.
