Schedule for Week of 1/21 - 1/27

The slate for the week features some some quality match-ups, as well as opportunites to pick up easy points, for teams involving Sabres prospects. Thursday evening should mark the return of Jhonas Enroth to the SSK crease as they battle Djurgarden. The CCHA will feature a pair of high-profile weekend sets for key Sabres prospects. #7 Michigan State, with wings Tim Kennedy and Corey Tropp, will enter a tough home-and-home series with hated #1 Michigan, while Nick Eno's Bowling Green Falcons will swap home ice with #6 Notre Dame. Another Saturday match-up will feature two of the top three QMJHL clubs as Paul Byron's Gatineau Olympiques travel to second place Rouyn-Noranda. Brad Eidsness' Okotoks Oilers (34-9-0-3) will host two of the weaker teams in the league this week (Calgary Royals and Canmore) before visiting AJHL South Division leaders Camrose (39-4-0-5) next Tuesday. Drew Schiestel's Niagara Ice Dogs face a pair of last place teams during the week before welcoming 2008 top prospect Steven Stamkos on Sunday. I'd rather write about more the action itself, so here's the complete schedule for the week: Monday Huddinge at Nykopings (Persson) Rochester at Iowa Tuesday Moncton at St. John's (Allard, Brennan) Okotoks (Eidsness) at Calgary DEG Metro Stars at Cologne (Gogulla) Ingolstadt (Schutz) at Hannover Indiana at Waterloo (MacKenzie) Wednesday Quad City at Rochester Moncton at St. John's (Allard, Brennan) Halifax at Gatineau (Byron) Nykopings (Persson) at Vasteras Thursday Erie at Niagara (Schiestel) Canmore at Okotoks (Eidsness) Sodertalje (Enroth) at Djurgarden Friday Lake Erie at Rochester Union at St. Lawrence (Generous) Boston College (Gerbe, Orpik) at Maine Bowling Green (Eno) at Notre Dame Michigan State (Kennedy, Tropp) at Michigan Berlin at Ingolstadt (Schutz) Cologne (Gogulla) at Augsburger Niagara (Schiestel) at Kingston Acadie-Bathurst at Baie-Comeau (Breault) Gatineau (Byron) at Val D'or Waterloo (MacKenzie) at Omaha Saturday Frolunda at Sodertalje (Enroth) Harvard (Biega) at Dartmouth Notre Dame at Bowling Green (Eno) Boston College (Gerbe, Orpik) at Maine Michigan at Michigan State (Kennedy, Tropp) RPI at St. Lawrence (Generous) Gatineau (Byron) at Rouyn-Noranda St. John's (Allard, Brennan) at Saint John Lincoln at Waterloo (MacKenzie) Sunday Mannheim at Ingolstadt (Schutz) Cologne (Gogulla) at Struabing Yaxso at Nykoping (Persson) St. John's (Allard, Brennan) at PEI Victoriaville at Baie-Comeau (Breault) Sarnia (Stamkos) at Niagara (Schiestel)
