Written By Kris Baker on Sunday, January 6, 2013 | 1/06/2013

Justin Kea notched the first three-point game of his career with a pair of shorthanded goals and an assist as Saginaw handled Owen Sound 6-2. Kea, who buried a shorthanded breakaway to give the Spirit a 1-0 lead in the opening period, intercepted a pass and put the fork in the Attack with his second goal of the game late in the third period. The 6-foot-4 pivot has 31 points (13+18) through 40 games heading into Sunday's tilt with Guelph . Daniel Catenacci (-2) went without a point for the Attack, who next take the ice Wednesday at Erie.

In the USHL, Judd Peterson extended his point streak to four games with a goal and an assist as Cedar Rapids pitched a 6-1 blowout of Waterloo. Peterson, who racked up a career-best plus-four rating in the win, has an even 20 points (7+13) through 26 games.

Brady Austin did not play due to a hand injury as Belleville earned a 6-2 win over Sault Ste. Marie. The severity of Austin's injury is unknown at this time but could force the Bulls to shop for a defender at the upcoming trade deadline.

In Sweden, Linus Ullmark stopped all 26 shots sent his way as MODO J20 blanked Sodertalje 5-0. The J20 will square off with Djurgardens on Sunday.

Colin Jacobs finished with a minus-one rating as Prince George was doubled by Kelowna 8-4. The Cougars played with just 15 skaters for the second straight game.

Brad Navin sat out as Wisconsin edged Alaska-Anchorage 1-0.Navin has played in just one of two games for the past three weekend for the Badgers as Mike Eaves rotates his bottom line forwards.

David Leggio made 28 saves as Rochester was defeated 3-1 at Abbotsford. Kevin Sundher and T.J. Brennan drew assists on the lone Amerks goal scored by Nick Tarnasky.

Brennan: A, SOG

Adam: -1
Girgensons: -1
Foligno: 3 SOG

Does Peterson project out to be anything special? Each year we take these flyers on players in the 7th round. Any chance Isackson, Navin or Peterson ever truly develop?
