11/15 Recap: Cornel collects; Lemieux tips 10th

In Saturday action, Eric Cornel cruised to a one-goal, three-assist performance as Peterborough defeated Niagara 5-1. The four-point night, Cornel's first of the season and fourth of his OHL career, gives the crafty forward 18 points (6+12) in his first 18 games. The Petes are off until Thursday when they host Sault Ste. Marie.

Brendan Lemieux deflected a Rasmus Andersson ('15) point shot for his 10th goal of the year as Barrie edged North Bay 3-2. The power play marker gives the fiery winger 17 points in 16 games. Six of his 10 goals have come with the man advantage. The Colts return to work Saturday when they battle Cornel and the Petes.

A night after recording his second hat trick of the season, Justin Bailey scored a goal and an assist to help Kitchener to a 5-2 victory at Erie. Bailey's hot start has seen him collect team bests of 14 goals and 28 points in his first 18 games. He has seven multi-point efforts while getting at least one point in 16 of the 18 contests. 

Nick Baptiste went without a point for the fourth time in his first nine games as Sudbury lost at Sarnia 5-2. The speedy winger was playing his third game in as many days after Thursday's appearance with Team OHL at the Subway Super Series. Baptiste and the Wolves square off with Bailey's Rangers on Sunday.


Sam Reinhart posted a goal off a partial breakaway and added two assists as Kootenay skated to a 4-2 triumph at Lethbridge. As expected, Reinhart has been a step ahead of the opposition en route to collecting 10 points (3+7) in his first four games. The ICE, who are a perfect 4-0 since their captain was returned from Buffalo, will look to keep the good times rolling on Wednesday when they battle Medicine Hat.

Brycen Martin registered one assist as Swift Current lost to Prince Albert 4-3 in a shootout. The left-handed defender has eight points (0+8) and a plus-two rating through 22 games. The Broncos host Seattle on Sunday.


J.T. Compher (+1) notched one assist and four shots on goal as Michigan doubled American International 6-3. Compher has yet to score a goal while collecting six assists in his first nine games. The Wolverines remain on home ice next weekend to kick off the B1G schedule versus Penn State.

Hudson Fasching (-1) went without a point for the second straight game as No. 1 Minnesota suffered their first weekend sweep of the year with a 2-1 loss to No. 15 Minnesota-Duluth. Christian Isackson contributed one shot on goal in the loss. The Gophers will host Team USA U18 for a recruiting exhibition on Friday.

Anthony Florentino (3 SOG) went without a point for the fourth straight contest but made a handful of key defensive plays as Providence was edged by No. 10 Vermont 2-1. Fifth-year senior Mark Adams finished with an even rating and two minor penalties from the Friars blue line. Providence visits New Hampshire on Friday.

Cal Petersen made 20 saves and Connor Hurley logged one shot on goal a night after being the overtime hero as Notre Dame was defeated 4-1 at Merrimack. Next up for the Fighting Irish is a rare Thursday night tilt versus UMass Lowell.

Judd Peterson produced one shot on goal as No. 14 St. Cloud State played to a 1-1 tie at Western Michigan. The Huskies welcome North Dakota to town next weekend.

Max Willman put three shots on goal as Brown was hammered by Dartmouth 6-0. Willman and the Bears are at Colgate on Friday.

Sean Malone remained out of the lineup as Harvard was defeated by Yale 2-1. The Crimson face Dartmouth on Tuesday.


Christopher Brown was unable to crack the score sheet as Green Bay earned a 3-2 shootout victory at Des Moines. Brown, who was stopped as the Gamblers' first shooter, has a team-best five goals through 14 games. Green Bay is at Madison on Friday.


Dan Catenacci and Johan Larsson scored third-period goals but the Amerks couldn't overcome a slow start in taking a 7-4 loss to Chicago. Chad Ruhwedel and Brayden Irwin also scored for Rochester, while Phil Varone extended his point streak to four games with a pair of assists. Joel Armia picked up one assist. Mikhail Grigorenko went without a point for the fourth game in a row.

Nathan Lieuwen earned the start in the Rochster net, allowing three goals on his first six shots before being replaced by Andrey Makarov at 9:09 of the opening period. Lieuwen would return for the third period and keep the door closed to finish the night with nine saves on 12 shots. Makarov stopped eight of 12 shots in middle relief, and will likely get the start on Sunday afternoon when the Amerks travel to Hamilton.


Justin Kea bagged a goal and an assist for his first multiple-point game as a professional as Elmira bested Evansville 4-1. Colin Jacobs scored his first goal of the year for the Jackals, who next host Reading on Friday.
