12/30 Recap: Gauthier-Leduc ends year well; Eno injured

Jerome Gauthier-Leduc scored a goal and two assists Thursday to spark Rimouski to a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal. The 6'2 defenseman closed the 2010 calendar with six points over a current three-game streak to up his season line to 6-19-25. The Oceanic (20-18-2) will take the weekend off before returning to host Quebec on Tuesday.

Matt MacKenzie (+1) notched an assist as Calgary bested Brandon, 5-2. After netting just three points in his first 13 games, the 6'2 co-captain has connected for 16 in his last 22. The Hitmen (11-24-2), who with the win snapped a three-game losing streak, will start the year on a seven-game road-trip.

Corey Fienhage finished -1 as Kamloops got smoked by Kelowna, 7-1. Shane McColgan ('11) had two goals and an assist to pace the Rockets.

In the OHL, Gregg Sutch did not factor into the scoring as Mississauga lost to Guelph, 5-2. The defeat was just the fifth in regulation for the league-leading Majors.

In NCAA play, Connor Knapp had a night he'd like to forget, stopping just seven of 11 shots as Miami lost to St. Cloud, 4-3 in the championship game of the Florida College Classic. The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for Knapp, over which he stopped 62 of 65 shots.

Brad Eidsness did not play as North Dakota posted a 5-0 shutout of Duluth at the US Hockey Hall of Fame game.

On Wednesday, Nick Eno made 22 saves as Bowling Green lost to Princeton, 4-2. As the second goal was scored, a Princeton defender collided with Eno, forcing him to leave the game with a head/neck injury. His status for next weekend's set with Ferris State is unclear as of now.
