Mr. October continues Q cruise

Reigning QMJHL Offensive Player of the Month Luke Adam notched three assists on Friday as Cape Breton defeated Acadie-Bathurst, 6-2. Adam has seven goals and seven assists over his current eight-game point streak, and has hit the scoresheet in 17 of 20 games this season to solidify the center position for the Screaming Eagles (12-6-2-2). Maxme Legault had two assists as Shawinigan lost to Rimouski, 7-4. The 20-year old Cataractes captain has five goals, four assists, and a +4 in eight games since returning from his AHL stay with Portland. In the OHL, Nick Crawford posted a pair of assists in Saginaw's 5-1 over Oshawa. The Spirit win was their fifth in a row, while Crawford upped his season point total to 19 (3+16) in 18 season games. Marcus Foligno picked up an assist and a fighting major as Sudbury was outplayed in a 6-2 loss to Barrie. Foligno earned the third period takedown in one of four evening tilts, but Wolves continue to find themselves in last place in the Central Division with 7-11-0-1 mark. In the CCHA, Corey Tropp was even with two shots on goal as unranked Michigan State played to a 3-3 tie with #10 Nebraska-Omaha. Despite the bagels, Tropp is currently tied with Duluth's Jack Connolly atop the NCAA leaderboard with 15 points (8+7). In 63 games prior to this season, the junior had scored just nine goals. In the WCHA, Brad Eidsness made 21 saves to help #2 North Dakota earn a 4-2 win over Michigan Tech. The win ups the sophomore's record to 4-1-1 on the year. Corey Fienhage was again a healthy scratch, but could play on Saturday as the Sioux look to work him in to the blueline rotation. Drew MacKenzie picked up a power play assist as #15 Vermont came back to tie #8 Lowell, 3-3. Alex Biega was even as Harvard lost at Colgate, 5-4. Connor Knapp took his usual Friday post on the RedHawks bench as #1 Miami took down #4 Michigan at Yost, 3-1. After missing last Saturday's spot in the rotation, Knapp wil likely get back to action on Saturday as the RedHawks look for the sweep. Nick Eno served as back-up in Bowling Green's 5-1 loss to Ferris State. In the USHL, Mark Adams (+1) scored an unassisted goal as Chicago lost to Fargo, 4-1. The mark was Adams' first of his junior "A" career for the first-place Steel.
