9/17 Recap: Asplund assists in FBK opener

In opening day action in the Swedish Hockey League, Rasmus Asplund collected his first point of the year, an assist, as Farjestad scored a power play goal in the game's final minute to earn a 2-1 victory over Örebro. Asplund finished with 16:00 of work while receiving some time on the power play.

 Elsewhere, Victor Olofsson contributed two shots on goal while earning 11:55 of work as Frölunda opened the 2016-17 SHL season with a 3-2 loss to Malmö.

In Allsvenskan regular season action, Jonas Johansson stopped 23 of 25 shots as Almtuna IS was blanked by Västerviks IK 3-0. Johansson is now 0-2 with a 1.53 GAA and .930 save% in league play.

At the USHL Fall Classic East, Brett Murray scored his second goal of the preseason as Youngstown claimed a 4-3 win over Team USA. Murray, whose first preseason marker was an empty-netter, made it a 3-3 game with 5:16 left in regulation, and just 45 seconds after Team USA took a third-period lead.

Meanwhile back in Buffalo, Nick Baptiste's hat trick wasn't enough as the Sabres prospects were dumped by New Jersey 6-3. Baptiste stood out with three goals on a team-best seven shots while being one of just two skaters to get into the plus column (Vasily Glotov was the other). Linus Ullmark allowed five goals on 29 shots to take the loss. Full game recap at Sabres.com.
