1/17 Recap: Reinhart sets mark; Lemieux pots 30th

Sam Reinhart scored his 10th goal of the year Saturday to become Kootenay's all-time regular season points leader as the ICE were defeated 3-2 at Saskatoon. In 223 career games with the WHL franchise, Reinhart has collected 111 goals and 176 assists, overtaking Jarrett Stoll's previous record of 286 points. He has 33 points through 20 games this season. Brycen Martin finished with a minus-one rating for the Blades.


Brendan Lemieux one-timed the game-winning goal as Barrie blanked Mississauga 3-0. Lemieux's 30th of the year and 17th while on the power play snapped his season-high three-game goal drought. Lemieux hits the 30-goal mark in his 36th game, making him the quickest to 30 since Mikhail Grigorenko did it in 33 games in 2012-13.  The Colts are at Oshawa on Sunday.

Nick Baptiste left midway through the second period after taking a dangerous high stick near the eye area as Erie got past North Bay 6-5 in overtime. Post-game reports suggest he did not suffer any damage, but his status is unknown at this time. Connor McDavid ('15) scored twice including the game-winner and added an assist to earn the game's first star. Dylan Strome ('15) picked up three helpers, while fellow draft eligible Travis Dermott added a goal and an assist. Next up for the Otters is a Friday visit to Guelph.

Eric Cornel finished with a minus-two rating and was stopped in his shootout attempt as Peterborough was defeated by Ottawa 3-2. Cornel has one goal in 15 games since December 1, and a season total of 30 points (9+21) through 39 contests. The teams complete the home-and-home series Sunday in Ottawa.


Vaclav Karabacek missed his second straight game with a lower body injury as Baie-Comeau earned a 4-3 victory over Shawinigan. Karabacek has 28 points (12+16) this season, including three in six games since being traded to the Drakkar.


Christian Isackson scored his first goal of the year and sixth as a collegian as Minnesota handed Wisconsin a 5-2 loss. Isackson, who rounded out the effort with a season-high five shots on goal, has three points in 20 games this season. Hudson Fasching (+2) supplied five shots on goal for Minnesota, while Badger forward Brad Navin produced two shots for the losing side.

Judd Peterson (-1) did not factor as St. Cloud State was swept by Denver 4-1. The freshman forward has four points (2+2) in his first 22 NCAA games.

Brown freshman Max Willman (-3) continued to fill in as a defenseman as the Bears were bested by Yale 5-1. Willman will look to snap a 12-game point drought on Friday when Brown visits Clarkson.

Sean Malone sat out for a third game in a row as Harvard suffered their third loss of the year 5-1 to St. Lawrence. The Crimson will look to get back in the win column Friday at Cornell.


Christopher Brown earned one assist as Green Bay extended their slide to six straight losses with a 4-1 defeat at Cedar Rapids. Brown continues to lead the Gamblers with 12 goals despite failing to connect in his last seven games.


Gustav Possler (-2, 2 SOG) notched an assist as MODO was defeated by Laksands IF 4-3. Victor Olofsson (-1) recorded one shot on goal in 7:38 of action, while goaltender Linus Ullmark remained out of the lineup as he nurses a groin injury.


Mikhail Grigorenko scored a pair of goals as Rochester closed out a Texas road trip with a 5-3 loss to San Antonio. Grigorenko, who earned the game's third star, has five points in his last two games. Zac Dalpe added a single for the Amerks, while Jake McCabe  picked up an assist to give him points in three of his last four contests. Joel Armia returned to action for the first time since Dec. 27, logging a minus-two rating and no shots.
