12/7 Recap: Trio contributes with mixed results

In the OHL, Nick Crawford (-1) posted three primary assists on the power play as Saginaw dumped Sault Ste. Marie, 6-3. The third-star effort gives the Caledon, Ontario native six multi-point games this season through the first 26 outings, while his 20 total points have already equaled his 2007-08 output (68 games). 2009 eligible Michael Fine had a goal and an assist for the Greyhounds in the loss, while highly rated netminder Edward Pasquale of Saginaw made 22 saves for his 18th win of the season. Jacob Lagacé posted two first period goals for Chicoutimi in their 5-3 loss to Val-d'Or. Looking for their third win in as many nights, the Sags top line of Lagacé, Nicolas Deschamps (ANA), and Joel Champagne (TOR) was clicking early, but fell victim to four unanswered goals from the Foreurs in the final 7:32 of play. Maxime Sauvé (BOS) had a goal and two helpers to lead Val-d'Or. Also from the Q, Jordon Southorn had a goal and an assist as PEI got pounded by Drummondville, 8-3. The 6'2 defenseman has picked up his play in recent weeks for a Rocket club that has now lost six straight games. On the other side, the Volts victory was their 13th in a row. Luke Adam (-2) and T.J. Brennan (-3, 6 PIM) both failed to hit the sheet as struggling Montreal dropped their third straight game, 5-2 at Shawinigan. Both Juniors prospects are a cumulative -5 over the past three, with the former going pointless while seeing more shifts at center away from the top-line combo of Angelo Esposito (ATL) and Nick Layton.

Bakes, do you think there's any chance we'll see Shutz play for the Sabres maybe two years from now?

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,
Peter Robert Casey

I can see Schutz playing into a call-up to the top club within that frame. Last season in the DEL was good prep after the Q, and he's ramping it up already in year one. He's a versatile prospect that needs seasoning before entering the full-time fray, but his basic skills give him a solid two-way foundation. I boldly had him sneaking up the Sabres radar in the 2008-09 Predictions/Predictions article, and with the Sabres often calling up the hot guy, you never know.
