Sunday preseason wrap

Some quick notes on a preseason Sunday in the CHL... Drew Schiestel suited up for a pair of assists in Niagara's 6-3 win over Oshawa. Consistent with his camp thus far, the fourth-year defenseman was said to have played with a greater physical edge than in previous seasons. Hamburg native John Cullen stopped 15 of 17 shots for the Ice Dogs. In the Q, Paul Byron (+1) had a pair of assists in Gatineau's 6-5 shootout win over Montreal. The Ottawa native went 10/16 from the dot while picking up his usual handful of shots, blocks, and hits. Sabres prospects TJ Brennan and Luke Adam watched from the stands for the Juniors. Jordon Southorn (-1) had an assist and a game-high five hits in PEI's 5-2 loss to Saint John. A day after a three goal, one assist performance in a camp scrimmage, Jacob Lagacé did not play in Chicoutimi's 5-3 win over Baie-Comeau. In the WHL, Tyler Myers and Kelowna are laying low until a Friday tilt with Vancouver. Meanwhile, Tyler Ennis and the Medicine Hat Tigers are in Edmonton for the Oil Kings Preseason Tournament. After sitting out of a 6-4 loss to Regina on Saturday, Ennis will skate Monday against the hosts. The busy Tigers will then head to Saskatoon for another tournament next weekend.

And Schiestel is a fourth-year defenceman.
