9/18 Recap: Lagacé leads

Fresh off a strong showing at Sabres camp, Jacob Lagacé maintained his NHL momentum in the QMJHL on Friday by collecting two goals and two assists as Chicoutimi edged Victoriaville, 6-4. The #1 star performance saw both goals come at even strength while his helpers came with the man advantage. The best player on the ice all night, Lagacé was stronger in the corners, faster to the puck, and generally quick to execute. He looks locked in for a big year as his professional aspirations unfold. Also in the Q, Jordon Southorn was -1 as PEI fell to Moncton, 4-3 in a shootout. In Cranbrook, promising WHL rearguard Brayden McNabb got a solid season jump, posting two assists and a +3 as Kootenay shelled Lethbridge, 8-1. The 6'4 McNabb had six multi-point outings in 2008-09. The Ice take on Red Deer on Saturday. In the OHL, Nick Crawford had a power play assist as Saginaw opened their OHL season with a 4-3 shootout win over Guelph.
