2/24 Recap: A new Lord Byron?

Paul Byron scored a pair of even-strength goals in Gatineau's 6-2 win over Chicoutimi. And so the streak rolls on for Byron, who has now hit the scoresheet in eight straight contests. During the impressive stretch, Byron has 11 goals and five assists for the surging Olympiques. Philip Gogulla was +2 as Cologne continued their playoff tune-up with a 4-0 shutout of Hannover. Despite not factoring into any of the Sharks goals, Gogulla still has 13 points in his last eight games with just three to go in the regular season. Also in the DEL, Felix Schutz was pointless with a single shot on goal in Ingolstadt's 5-4 overtime defeat of Iserlohn. In the OHL, Drew Schiestel was +1 as Niagara dominated Sudbury, 4-1. T.J. Brennan and J.S. Allard were both held scoreless as St. John's lost in the shootout to Shawinigan, 3-1. Both Sabres prospects were chosen as Foggies shooters, but were stopped by Cataractes goaltender, Kevin Maletto. Brad Eidsness got a rest today as his Okotoks Oilers played to a 2-2 tie with Drumheller. We'll be back shortly with an update on the Amerks game against the Houston Aeros. The teams are scoreless after one. Rochester is playing with just sixteen skaters tonight - including 10 forwards.

I see Drew was on for all three PP goals the Dogs scored. All four goals and he was on the ice. Not to shabby.

Not too shabby at all. I like Schiestel quite a bit. We need to see the dust settle on Buffalo's AHL agreement for next season to determine whether he gets brought into the fold a year ahead of schedule, or if he continues to develop on the IceDogs dime. I'd like to see him adjust to the pro game. I never want to rush anyone, but the kid already skates and passes like a pro and has a great frame, so is it really rushing? I think not. Good find by the Sabres.
