10/12 Recap: Gauthier-Leduc strikes in loss; McNabb eyes Saturday return

In a quiet Tuesday for Sabres prospects, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc scored a power play goal as Rimouski lost at Saint John, 5-3. The 18-year old gave the Oceanic a 2-1 lead with five minutes to go in the first period when a teammates' shot ricocheted off the pipe right to his stick for an easy goal. The Sea Dogs would take over from there, capitalizing on a disheveled Rimouski defense for four consecutive goals to get the win. The goal, JGL's second of the season, gives him seven points in eight games.

Out west, Kootenay's Brayden McNabb (shoulder) missed his second straight game as the Ice traveled to Regina. Listed as day-to-day, McNabb is eying a Saturday return on home ice against the Pats. The 6'4 defenseman played in three games prior to the ding, picking up an assist in each.
