Season totals: 57 GP, 36-37-73, +26, 49 PIM

Fadden’s goal streak is now at nine games. He tied his career high for goals in a year – 36 – set two seasons ago with Lethbridge in 71 games. TC was playing without goaltender Chet Pickard, who was injured in the American's game against Spokane Saturday night when he was run over by Spokane's Ryan Letts - igniting a brawl - one of two on the night (Spokane's third and fourth of the year).

Vancouver Giants 6 @ Chilliwack Bruins 3
C James Wright, VAN: 0-1-1, +1, 5 PIM (Fighting vs. Brandon Manning)
Season totals: 64 GP, 19-25-44, +21, 46 PIM

Wright now has points in five of his last six games. Evander Kane had a goal and a fight.

Note: There were two QMJHL prospects in action, Michael Ward (CB 4 A-B 3) and Mark Barberio (SHW 7 MCT 0), but the Q site has made some upgrades and the game summaries and stats aren't working at the moment.

N.A. Juniors Game Night: 2/28

Fadden gets the best of Tokarski before nearly every player was thrown out of the game ... DeCoste keeps his point streak alive ... Jung and Edmonton get a point but drop one too.

N.A. Juniors Game Night: 2/27

Luca's back ... DeCoste and Wright extend streaks ... Fadden continues his ridiculous run ... a snowman and goose egg for Tokarski and Spokane.

Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has impressive size and strength. Can play both center or wing. Is accomplished in the defensive zone and shows excellent offensive potential.

Weaknesses: 

Must constantly face the scrutiny that comes with being the son of an NHLer (Greg Malone). Has to prove he can maintain a top-six forward role over time.
