9/30: Persson ramping up; Myers goes back

Dennis Persson logged a season-high 22:28 of ice time - believed to be the most in his SEL career - as Timra defeated Lulea, 3-1. The game saw the 2006 first-rounder slide to the left side as former Sabres property Mikko Lehtonen (3 GP 2-3-5) was kept out of action. The move to Timra seems to paying off, as Persson is quickly getting a fair shake when it comes to getting a regular shift in the top league. Later this evening, Tyler Ennis (2 GP 0-1-1) and the Medicine Hat Tigers will visit Calary for a tilt against the Hitmen. Also pertaining to the WHL, Tyler Myers has been returned to Kelowna from the Sabres camp. To slighty play catch-up... On Sunday, Jacob Lagacé factored in on both Chicoutimi markers, netting a goal and an assist, as the Sagueneens fell to Drummondville, 6-2. The Sags had some issues getting it going, registering just 16 shots for the game. Also from Sunday, Luke Adam had an assist and T.J. Brennan was +1 as Montreal downed Gatineau, 5-0. Paul Byron was -1 for Gatineau in the loss.
