It was a pretty light Sunday in the CHL with just two games of Sabres prospects relevance on the docket.
In Rimouski, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc continued his hot start by notching two assists as the Oceanic came up short in a 5-4 loss to Shawinigan. The mobile rearguard, who now has five points (2+3) in his first two games back from Buffalo, will look to continue his early roll Saturday versus Moncton.
In the WHL, Mark Pysyk kicked off his 2011-12 campaign by logging a -1 as Edmonton fell to Red Deer in overtime, 4-3. The two-way stalwart also mixed slashing and boarding minors into his Sunday line en route to the Oil Kings pushing off to a 0-1 start. With Edmonton considered among the WHL's top clubs this season, big things are expected of the 19-year old captain after his six-goal, 40-point effort a season ago. The Oil Kings return to action Wednesday at Prince Albert.
