Also from the OHL, Steven Shipley delivered two assists including one on the game-winning goal as Niagara defeated Plymouth, 5-2. Ryan Strome ('11) scored his seventh and eighth goals of season to pace the Dogs.

On Thursday, Brayden McNabb returned after an eight-game absence to notch an assist and a +2 rating as Kootenay shutout Calgary, 3-0.

Kevin Sundher finished -1 as Chilliwack edged Edmonton, 2-1. Mark Pysyk was +1 for the Oil Kings.

Sundher seems to be having a fairly slow start. Is there any particular reason for this?

Sundher will get firing. He hasn't been playing all that bad. He's more snakebitten than anything. He gets a lot of attention from other team's checkers, and that has limited him somewhat.
