12/2 Recap: Ennis, Byron get last licks in while awaiting call

On the eve of Hockey Canada releasing their selection camp roster for the 2009 World Junior Championships, a pair of Sabres prospects made one last effort in hopes getting the call in the morning. In the Q, Paul Byron set-up Jan Stransky's game winning goal as Gatineau edged Rouyn-Noranda, 2-1. The power play helper extends Byron's point streak to 12 games while the Piques have won six of their last seven games. While marveling at Byron's splendid November reign, let's not forget the crafty WHL forward who also scored 17 points (8+9) over the course of the month - Tyler Ennis. Ennis scored a goal and an assist in Medicine Hat's 7-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday. Ennis now has 14 goals this season, and a total of nine multi-point games. 2009 eligible Tomas Vincour, a 6'2, 203-pound center, was -3 for the Oil Kings. Byron and Ennis joined Kelowna's Tyler Myers at Team Canada's summer gathering. All three are expected to get a last look at the five-day camp that begins December 11th in Ottawa, while Montreal's Luke Adam has a shot at getting an invite after a strong overall start and a pair of goals in the ADT Challenge.
