Time again for our jog around the continent, and that other one across the pond….well, they’re all across some pond, but the one to the north and across that Atlantic where they speak 50 some languages and some have the same currency but some don’t and everyone dreams of chilling out in Ibiza or the Algarve.
Quiet weekend for Phillip Danault for Moncton. He had an assist in two games and was a -1.
In Victoriaville, Brandon Whitney had two wins. He stopped 22 of 23 in the first and 35 of 38 in the second.
Dillon Fournier was a -3 in two games for Rouyn-Noranda.
Moving west as I like to do to the OHL. Alex Broadhurst had a goal in two outings this past weekend, and is at 17-28-45 in 50 games for the London Knights.
Garrett Ross continues to light it up, as he had five points in two games this weekend, three of them goals. He’s at 31-30-61 in 45 games for the Spirit.
Now to the cowboys. Mark McNeill had a goal in two games, and is at a comfortable 50 points in 45 games for the Prince Albert Raiders in the tighter checking of the WHL.
Travis Brown had two assists in two games for Moose Jaw, and was actually a +2, bringing his season +/- to -12 in 51 games. He’s also got 31 points.
The Mac Carruth show continues to roll on with two more wins. He stopped 22 of 24 in the first and threw in another 26-save shutout on Saturday. In 28 appearances, Carruth has surrendered 50 goals. That’s a GAA of 1.83 and his SV% is .935. You start to wonder if he isn’t the best reason that the Hawks aren’t really considering taking on Luongo’s contract.
Dropping down to the college ranks. Kevin Hayes had two games this weekend, and according to the box score has flipped to a center spot for the Eagles. I haven’t seen the games to confirm this, maybe someone else can in the comments. Must run in the family to be awkwardly shifted to center. Anyway, he didn’t scratch but in last night’s Beanpot semifinal, he did manage nine shots (let me just say the Beanpot is just about the most overblown thing in hockey. It’s played on consecutive Mondays, which doesn’t allow it to build any momentum whatsoever and now comes right after the Super Bowl. It basically slips in under the radar, and by the time you want to get into it it goes away for a week and then the final happens while you’re not looking. And BC wins it anyway).
Notre Dame and Ohio State had a double date this weekend, which makes things pretty convenient for us. Both Sam Jardine and Stephen Johns managed one assist and were a +1.
Joe Gleason had a goal and an assist in a tie and win over Wisconsin this weekend. Nick Mattson didn’t scratch.
Teuvo Teravainen scored a goal for Jokerit in two games over the weekend.
And that’s all the news that’s fit to print.
