A Sorry Sunday OOPs

If you don't want to get your Monday off to a sad start then we suggest that you quit reading now and come back tomorrow as this is going to be an ugly report for both New York Islander and New York Ranger prospects.

Kirill Kabanov (NYI 2010 3rd) and his Shawinigan Cataractes had little trouble with the Rimouski Oceanic shutting them out 5-0. Kabanov recorded his 13th goal of the season in this game, a power play goal at 19:57 of the 2nd period which made the score 4-0.

Kabanov improves to 13-10-23 as the Cataractes had little trouble with the Oceanic.

If not for listening to some Pink Floyd we would have missed this one as Steven Fogarty (NYR 2011 3rd) may not have scored but his Penticton Vees did. After a 4-1 win over the Nanaimo Clippers, the Vees winning streak is now up to 15 games.

At 27-3-0-2, the Vees lead the BCHL by 13 points over their nearest competition. That was the end of the good news.

Now it gets kind of ugly as Andrew Yogan (NYR 2010 3rd) was able to play for his Peterborough Petes and had an assist but it was too little too late. The Petes extended their winless streak to 8 games (0-6-0-2) losing to the Sarina Sting 4-2.

Yogan who had to leave the Pete's last game complaining of severe headaches was able to go on Sunday and set up the Pete's first goal of the game. The problem was the Sting were up 4-0 by the time the Petes got on the board.

For Yogan he is now 13-14-27 on the season but his teammate Peter Ceresnak (2011 6th) was scoreless. About the only positive out of this game was Yogan back on the first line.

In Guelph it was more about heartbreak than ugly as the Guelph Storm were playing the  OHL leading London Knights and gave the Knights all they could handle. But in the end it was Max Domi (yes son of Tie) who broke their hearts with a goal 11 seconds into overtime for a 2-1 London win.

Andrey Pedan (NYI 2011 3rd) was scoreless but he did what he seems to do best which is take penalties taking 2 more minors to bring his season total to 29. Totally unacceptable for a player who dreams of playing in the NHL to revert back to hurting his team like this.

Going to be kind to John Persson (NYI 2011 5th) and his Red Deer Rebels after they lost their 11th straight game and are winless in 13 games. We will tell you they lost 5-0 to the Prince Albert Raiders and stop there.

Hockey Canada Selection Camp

Christian Thomas (NYR 2010 2nd) scored the game winning goal for Team White as they edged Team Red 3-2 in the first scrimmage at the Hockey Canada Selection Camp.

Ryan Strome (NYI 2011 1st) was on Team White but did not score. Brendan Kichton (NYI 2011 5th) had an assist for Team Red.
