11/11 Recap: Grigorenko pots four

Mikhail Grigorenko posted a career-best four goals Sunday as Quebec got past Cape Breton 5-4. The big haul, which included three strikes with the man advantage, gives Grigorenko 16 goals and 36 points through 18 games, which equates to a QMJHL-best 2.00 points-per-game average. The Remparts return to action Wednesday at Rimouski.

In the OHL, Justin Kea recorded his second fighting major of the year as Saginaw fell in a shootout to Kingston 5-4. The Spirit host in-state rival Plymouth on Wednesday.

Brady Austin picked up his sixth assist of the year as Belleville held on for a 3-2 win over Ottawa. The Bulls continue the schedule Wednesday versus Guelph.

In WHL action, Colin Jacobs notched an assist as Prince George was defeated by Vancouver 4-3 in a shootout. Following a hot start that saw him collect 14 points (7+7) through his first eight games, Jacobs has cooled a bit with a goal and six assists in his last dozen. The Cougars faceoff with Saskatoon on Friday.

looks like the lockout is turning out to be good for grigo...no worries about playing (or not playing) in the nhl...has the chance to work on his game...
my hope is that duclair gets back soon and that adam erne goes back to the second line...really like that kid and would love if his draft stock stayed in the sabres range (mid-lower first round)...
hey kris, any chance that patrick roy has his eyes set on the nhl?...he really seems to be getting the most out of his players

hey all - sorry about the funky formatting this morning...should be fixed now.

Boos - Duclair came back and has been scoring. They've had him with Shaw and Erne, while Grigorenko looks like he'll be going with Kucherov and newly acquired Jean Kristoff Grenier.

Patrick Roy is doing a good job in major junior. It helps being in a big market that can attract top players, and of course being a well-thought of hockey mind with Cup rings. I do think he'll be in the NHL eventually. Wouldn't at all be surprised if he surfaces when/if the league returns to QC. I have a feeling he'd love to battle in the Habs' division.
