Flint won another game!

Terry Wilson / OHL Images

Hello Leafs fans! Just a quick intro this week, since Ian Scott took the week off from winning all the awards. The OHL kids all had a great week, Zachary Bouthillier got two starts, but the US prospects weren’t up to snuff with their CHL counterparts.

Ontario Hockey League


#11 - Mac Hollowell (D) - 0G, 5A, +5
Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds - 15-6-4-1

Nov. 21st: vs Sudbury Wolves
W 7-4 - 0G, 2A, +1
Nov. 23rd: @ Guelph Storm
L 5-4 OT - 0G, 1A
Nov. 24th: @ Owen Sound Attack
W 7-4 - 0G, 3A, +4

After making it to game six of the OHL Championship Series last year, the Greyhounds are still riding high near the top of the western conference. It doesn’t hurt to have a PPG+ defender like Mac Hollowell on your team. Five points last week in only three games. Get ready for more of that next season Marlies fans.

#5 - Sean Durzi (D) - Injured
Owen Sound Attack - 13-10-1-2

Nov. 23rd: @ London Knights
L 7-2 - Did Not Play
Nov. 24th: vs Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds
L 7-4 - Did Not Play
Nov. 25th: vs Saginaw Spirit
L 3-0 - Did Not Play

Sean Durzi is still injured. I’m hoping he’s able to play this Thursday, though, since Owen Sound comes to Niagara.

#19 - Semyon Der-Arguchintsev (C) - 1G, 4A, +7
Peterborough Petes - 15-11-0-0

Nov. 22nd: vs Kingston Frontenacs
W 8-2 - 0G, 3A, +5

Nov. 24th: @ Erie Otters
W 4-0 - 0G, 1A, +1
Nov. 25th: @ Hamilton Bulldogs
W 6-3 - 1G, 0A, +1

It was SDA’s biggest week of the season, three assists setting up his teammates as the Petes beat the Frontenacs 8-2. A big week for the Petes as well, as they went 3-0 and widened the gap between themselves and 9th place.

#15 - Fedor Gordeev (D) - 1G, 2A, -3
Flint Firebirds - 3-22-1-0

Nov. 21st: vs Kitchener Rangers
L 7-2 - 0G, 0A, -3
Nov. 23rd: vs Windsor Spitfires
W 3-1 - 1G, 1A, +1

Nov. 24th: @ Windsor Spitfires
L 6-3 - 0G, 1A, -1

A two point game! And a Firebirds win! Both rare events this year for Gordeev and Flint. Of course they were bookended by big losses, but not everything can go your way.

#19 - Ryan McGregor (F) - 0G, 4A
Sarnia Sting - 11-11-2-2

Nov. 20th: @ Kitchener Rangers
W 7-4 - 0G, 1A, -1
Nov. 23rd: @ Kingston Frontenacs
W 8-2 - 0G, 2A, +4
Nov. 24th: @ Ottawa 67’s
L 8-4 - 0G, 1A, -2
Nov. 25th: @ Oshawa Generals
L 3-2 - 0G, 0A, -1

It was a good week for Leafs prospects in the OHL, as McGregor put up four points himself.


Western Hockey League

#18 - Riley Stotts (C) - 2G, 0A, -3
Calgary Hitmen - 10-13-2-1

Nov. 20th: @ Everett Silvertips
L 4-0 - 0G, 0A, -1
Nov. 21st: @ Portland Winterhawks
W 3-2 - 1G, 0A, -1
Nov. 23rd: @ Seattle Thunderbirds
W 5-2 - 0G, 0A, -1
Nov. 24th: @ Tri-City Americans
L 3-2 - 1G, 0A

Stotts scored twice, and the Hitmen got two much-needed wins. They’re still in that early season losing hole they dug, but a couple wins in Washington helped get them closer to a winning record.

#18 - Filip Kral (D) - 0G, 0A, +1
Spokane Chiefs - 13-8-1-2

Nov. 24th: vs Kamloops Blazers
W 3-1 - 0G, 0A, +1

A slow week in Spokane. Kral was pointless in his only game.

#33 - Ian Scott (G) - 55sv, 59sh, 0.932sv%
Prince Albert Raiders - 23-1-0-0

Nov. 20th: vs Lethbridge Hurricanes
W 5-1 - 29sv, 30sh, 0.967sv%
Nov. 23rd: @ Medicine Hat Tigers
W 7-3 - 26sv, 29sh, 0.897sv%
Nov. 24th: @ Kootenay Ice
W 5-1 - Did Not Play

A Raiders game without Scott starting? Must be punishment for putting up a sub-0.900sv%


Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

#33 - Zachary Bouthillier (G) - 59sv, 64sh, 0.922sv%
Chicoutimi Sagueens - 11-9-2-4

Nov. 21st: vs Rimouski Oceanic
W 3-2 - 32sv, 34sh, 0.941sv%
Nov. 24th: @ Blainville-Boisbriand Armada
L 3-0 - 27sv, 30sh, 0.900sv%
Nov. 25th: @ Shawinigan Cataractes
L 3-2 SO - Did Not Play

Bouthillier came in in relief for the Sagueens starter twice two weeks ago, so he got two starts last week and came out pretty good even though he was 1-1. Does this lead to more starts? I hope so.


USHL

#14 - JD Greenway (D) - No Points
Dubuque Fighting Saints - 8-8-1-2

Nov. 21st: vs Madison Capitols
L 2-1 - No Points
Nov. 24th: @ Sioux Falls Stampede
W 5-3 - No Points

Greenway couldn’t help the Saints get two wins, they’re hovering on the border between playoffs and an early off-season.


NCAA

#31 - Joseph Woll (G) - 14sv, 17sh, 0.824sv%
Boston College Eagles
Overall: 3-6-1 / Conference: 3-1-1

Nov. 23rd: vs Bentley
L 4-2 - 14sv, 17sh, 0.824sv%

It’s a good thing we have Ian Scott, since the Eagles aren’t making Woll look like a future starter this season. Neither is Woll for that matter.

#8 - Dakota Joshua (F) / Ryan O’Connell (D)
1G, 0A / No Points
Ohio State Buckeyes
Overall: 9-4-1 / Conference: 4-2-0

Nov. 23rd: vs Penn State
L 4-3 - 0G, 0A, +1 / No Points
Nov. 24th: vs Penn State
W 5-2 - 1G, 0A / No Points

O’Connell still doesn’t have that first NCAA point, Joshua only got one, but the Buckeyes are on their way to a good enough record for another attempt at the Frozen Four.
