9/22 Recap: Glotov grabs first star in loss

Vasily Glotov notched a pair of helpers to earn the game's first star Friday as Shawinigan opened the 2017-18 season with a 4-3 loss to Blainville-Boisbriand.

Glotov (#77), who is wearing an "A" this year for the Cataractes, got his season going quickly by picking up both of his helpers in the opening frame. The second was a primary assist while on the power play.

In the OHL, Austin Osmanski recorded one assist as Mississauga was defeated in their opener 4-3 by Ottawa.

In the WHL, Vojtech Budik logged a minus-1 rating as Prince Albert kicked off the year with a 3-0 loss to Moose Jaw.

Over in Sweden, Marcus Davidsson attacked the net for his third goal in as many SuperElit Norra games as Djurgården J20 fells to Luleå 5-2. Davidsson capped the effort with three shots on goal and 10 wins in 19 faceoff tries for a 52.6 per cent success rate. With the four points in three games with the junior squad, Davidsson is clearly demonstrating his desire to earn a call back to the SHL club.
