It was an extremely quiet Friday night for New York Ranger prospects as 9 prospects could only put up a grand total of 1 goal and 2 assists. In other words nobody stood out so nobody earns a star for the evening.
In the QMJHL
Ryan Bourque (2009 3rd) returned to action after missing 2 games with "concussion like" symptoms but had more PIMs (4) than shoots (3) or hits (1) or points (o). His Quebec Remparts though did not need Bourque as they whipped the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 9-1.
Chris Doyle (2008 5th) 1 shot, -1, 1-1 on faceoffs and 1 good hit as his Prince Edward Island Rocket defeat the Val-d'Or Foreurs 5-2.
In the OHL
Ethan Werek (2009 2nd) was held scoreless as his Kingston Frontenacs dropped the home end of the "home and home" with the Belleville Bulls 2-1. Frontenacs are a young team who will learn to win these kinds of games down the road.
Scott Stajcer (2009 5th) gave up 3 power play goals as his Owen Sound Attack lost to the London Knights 3-1. Stajcer was 28 for 31 and if Owen Sound can improve their penalty killing (3 for 7) then Stajcer's numbers would not look so bad.
Daniel Maggio (2009 6th) had an assist but was also -1 with 4 PIMs as his Sudbury Wolves lost in the shoot out to the Plymouth Whalers 6-5.
In the WHL
Roman Horak (2009 6th) had an assist but it was too little too late as his Chilliwack Bruins lost on the road to the Kelowna Rockets 6-4. Horak's assist was on the last Bruin goal when the outcome of game was already decided.
Sam Klassen (UFA 2009) was scoreless and had 2 PIMs as his Saskatoon Blades lost in the shoot out to the Prince Albert Raiders 2-1.
Craig Cunningham (Traverse City) had the only goal of the night as his 4th goal of the season tied the score in the 3rd period but his Vancouver Giants eventually lost to the Kamloops Blazers in the shootout 2-1. Cunningham missed on his shoot out attempt.
Luke Walker (Traverse City) was scoreless and a -1 but his Portland Winterhawks won their 3rd straight game 5-3 over the Spokane Chiefs.
