12/29 Recap: Lagacé keeps stacking; McNabb streak snapped

Jacob Lagacé scored his 28th goal of the year on Tuesday as Chicoutimi lost a hard-fought 5-4 decision to Baie-Comeau. The 5'11 Lagacé remains atop the QMJHL goal scoring list with 28 - two ahead of speedy Saint John center Mike Hoffman (26).

In the WHL, Brayden McNabb garnered an assist but saw his five-game goal scoring streak snapped as Kootenay edged Red Deer in a shootout, 5-4. McNabb is currently tied for the WHL defencemen in scoring with 37 points (12+27) in 31 games.

Elsewhere, Maxime Legault posted a pair of assists as Cape Breton throttled QMJHL cellar dweller Halifax, 6-0. The points, his first as an Eagle after being traded two days before Christmas, raise his season total to 22 (10+12).

Jordon Southorn was -4 as PEI lost to QMJHL powerhouse Saint John, 5-2. The Rocket were reeling a bit after trading their 1st and 4th leading scorers, Joel Champagne and Chris Doyle, to Victoriaville earlier in the day. The Tigers stocking up their offense could mean that Chicoutimi will have to find another suitor if they indeed have designs on moving sniping forward Lagacé.

In the OHL, Nick Crawford scored a goal and an assist as Barrie defeated Kitchener, 7-4. Crawford scored his 9th of the season when he beat Brandon Maxwell (COL) with a shot low to the blocker side at 18:40 of the opening period. With 22 straight victories, the Colts are closing in on the record of 25 set by Kitchener back in 1984.

Marcus Foligno picked up an assist as Sudbury stopped Soo, 4-2. Foligno found Cain Allicock from behind the net at 1:56 of the first period to put the Wolves ahead, 1-0.

In the NCAA, Alex Biega assisted on a late empty-netter as Harvard defeated #8 Quinnipiac, 3-1. The senior captain now has a goal and four assists through the Crimson's first 12 games.
