Rouyn-Noranda Huskies teammates and 2013 NHL Draft prospects Jean-Sebastien Dea and Sven Andrighetto continued their battle for the lead in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League scoring race Wednesday, combining for three goals and two assists as the Huskies beat the visiting Sherbrooke Phoenix 6-3.
The duo, linemates since last season, are a major reason the Huskies lead the Telus West Division and have remained close to the streaking Halifax Mooseheads, who have won 13 in a row.
Dea, who had a goal and two assists Wednesday, has held the scoring lead most of the season. His 34 points put him one ahead of Andrighetto, who scored two goals Wednesday.
With 18 goals, Dea is tied with Halifax's Nathan MacKinnon for the league lead, while Andrighetto tops the QMJHL with 19 assists.
