1/7 Recap: Foligno pots shortie; Sutch on the move?

Marcus Foligno scored this league-leading fifth shorthanded goal and added two assists Friday as Sudbury throttled Barrie, 8-3. The 6'3 forward now has 16 goals and 36 points through his first 29 games for the Wolves. With 30 games remaining on his OHL slate, the Sudbury captain is trending to finish the season with a line of 59 GP 32-41-73. Last season, he posted 14-25-39 in 67 games.

Gregg Sutch did not play as Mississauga downed Sault Ste. Marie, 5-1. The healthy scratch is fueling speculation that the grinding forward may be traded before the January 10th trade deadline, possibly in exchange for a goaltender. We'll let you know if anything shakes out.

Zack Kassian posted an assist and a career-low -5 rating as Windsor was stung by Sarnia, 9-4. The Sting's highly regarded pair of 2012 eligibles had solid outings, with Alex Galchenyuk scoring a goal and an assist and Nail Yakubov going 1+2. These kids are for real.

Jerome Gauthier-Leduc notched an assist as Rimouski fell to PEI, 4-3. The 6'2 blueliner now has seven goals and 21 assists in 36 games this season. JGL's recent spike after returning from injury has seen him up his production to .78 ppg.

In the WHL, Kevin Sundher scored his 13th goal of the season on the power play as Chilliwack Kamloops. Corey Fienhage skated even for the Blazers, while Colin Smith ('11) paced the winning side with a hat trick.

Matt MacKenzie finished -3 as Calgary got clobbered by Brandon, 9-2. The lowly Hitmen have lost four straight contests.

Brayden McNabb (+1) saw his 11-game point streak come to an end as Kootenay bested Moose Jaw, 3-1. The burgeoning stay-at-homer is currently 6th in WHL scoring for defensemen with 32 points (9+23).

In USHL play, Christian Isackson (+1) chipped two shots on goal as Sioux Falls upended Dubuque, 2-1 in overtime. After netting 13 points in his first 15 games, the crafty forward has just two points in his last ten.

In NCAA play, Nick Eno stopped 13 of 17 shots as Bowling Green lost to Ferris State, 4-1. The Falcons netminder stopped all nine shots he faced through two periods before allowing four goals in the final frame to drop his season mark to 4-6-1.

Mark Adams as Providence lost at #3 Boston College, 4-1. The two clubs will play it back Saturday evening in Providence.

Justin Jokinen contributed three shots on goal as Minnesota State crept past American International, 1-0.

Connor Knapp took his usual Friday night post at the bench door as Miami lost a tight 1-0 affair to Ohio State. Knapp will look to rebound from last week's poor start when the two team's rematch on Saturday.

Brad Eidsness did not play as North Dakota earned their second consecutive shutout via a 8-0 pasting of Robert Morris.
