10/23 Recap: Henley heating up

Written By Kris Baker on Monday, October 24, 2011 | 10/24/2011

Cedrick Henley scored a pair of goals Sunday as Val-d'Or earned a 5-1 victory over Rouyn-Noranda. Henley, who fired a game-best eight shots on goal, now has goals in three straight after beginning the year with a ten-game dry spell. The 6'5 wing will look to extend his streak when then Foreurs battle Victoriaville on Tuesday.

In WHL play, Nathan Lieuwen made 21 saves as Kootenay downed Calgary, 4-2. The WHL's top goaltender improves to 7-2-0-2 on the year while giving up a total of 16 goals in his eleven starts.

Drew MacKenzie registered a shot on goal as Vermont posted a 5-4 upset at #8 Minnesota. The senior defenseman saw a Nate Schmidt point-shot deflect off his stick for the third Gophers goal. Christian Isackson was re-inserted into the Minnesota lineup after a three-game absence, finishing -1 with an assist. Vermont will look to keep the momentum going next weekend against Merrimack. Minnesota will travel to Alaska-Anchorage before beginning a key series with North Dakota on November 4th.

Dan Catenacci skated even and was stopped in his shootout attempt as Owen Sound lost to Sudbury, 2-1. The Attack are off until Friday when they host London.
