1/18-19 Recap: Lieuwen gets 20th win

Written By Kris Baker on Friday, January 20, 2012 | 1/20/2012

Nathan Lieuwen made 21 saves Wednesday to earn his 20th win of the year as Kootenay earned a 3-2 overtime win over Regina. The 6'5 netminder, who is one game off his 33-win pace from a season ago (he won his 21st game of 2010-11 a year ago to the day), could get a shot to continue his roll on Friday when the ICE travels to Moose Jaw.

Kevin Sundher finished -1 as Brandon downed Saskatoon, 6-4. Sundher has three assists in five games with Wheat Kings, and zero goals in eight January games. The Wheat Kings and Blades will play it back Friday in Saskatoon.

Mark Pysyk was +1 as Edmonton blanked Prince George, 5-0. The Oil Kings are at Swift Current on Friday.

In OHL play, Dan Catenacci did not factor into the scoring as Owen Sound held on for a 5-4 win over Plymouth. The Attack return to action Friday at London.

On Thursday, Alex Lepkowski finished +1 as Barrie defeated Saginaw 4-3 in a shootout. Gregg Sutch missed his eighth game with an upper body injury. The Colts host Guelph on Saturday.

In your opinion, where would Lieuwen stand in the hierarchy of Sabres net prospects? Also, do you think the Sabres will try and use one of their second round picks to select a goalkeeper?

I know, take the best player available etc. but it seems that centre and perhaps goalkeeper may need the most replenishing.

Nevermind about where Lieuwen stands in the net hierarchy. I see you updated your prospects ranking.

Has Leiuwen been given a contract yet?

hey - you probably saw those while the last shuffle was being made haha. Lieuwen at #15. No contract yet but at the very least will be kept in the pipeline next year (ECHL/AHL).

Consider that a sneak preview - thus it's buried on the page..There will be an accompanying article at some point (hopefully soon). Can't guarantee the rankings won't change a little here and there.
