Cedrick Henley was a contributor in his first game of the season Thursday, collecting three assists including a set-up of the game winning goal as Val-d'Or dominated Moncton, 7-3. The 6'5, 204-pound wing is poised for a big season in the QMJHL after missing 42 games a year ago to undergo corrective wrist surgery. The three-point outing was just the second of Henley's career, while his +3 on the night stands as a single-game best. Former Caps prospect Benjamin Casavant paced the Foreurs with a hat trick.
In the OHL, Gregg Sutch made his debut in a Colts uniform, posting an assist as Barrie defeated Kingston, 7-4. Alex Lepkowski logged a +1 for the Colts, while undrafted forwards Tanner Pearson and Zach Hill each recorded two goals and three assists.
Steven Shipley finished -1 as Niagara got stomped by Peterborough, 7-1. The IceDogs were playing without top forward Ryan Strome, who is attempting to make the New York Islanders as an 18-year old.
