Still no Morin sightings at Oshawa tourney

OSHAWA, Ontario -- Chicago's Jeremy Morin is one of the Blackhawks' top prospects, and fans are looking forward to seeing him.

As of Sunday, they were still waiting.

Morin has sat the past two games, due to a coaching decision here at the Oshawa rookie tournament and has not been made available to the media.

Morin was one of the final cuts during last season's training camp in Chicago, but was called up from Rockford multiple times throughout the season, eventually playing in a total of nine games for the big club. He is expected to make a solid push again this year.

Da Costa records natural hat trick in Sens' win

OSHAWA, Ontario -- Stephane Da Costa was a star for Ottawa Sunday afternoon in Oshawa with a natural hat trick, lifting the Sens over the Blackhawks, 6-5.

Leafs claim 4-2 win over Blackhawks

OSHAWA, Ontario -- It was a chippy affair to wrap up Saturday night at the Oshawa rookie Tournament, with the Toronto Maple Leafs edging the Chicago Blackhawks, 4-2.

The feisty Jamie Devane began the scoring in the first period for Toronto, but Chicago's Brandon Saad came to life midway through the game, assisting on a goal from Christopher DiDomenico in the second, and putting one for himself past Garret Sparks in the third period.

The Leafs, however, still had some offensive juice left in the tank. Kenny Ryan scored his first goal of the tournament, while Jake Gardiner added the go-ahead and winning goals. Sondre Olsen, Garrett Clarke and Mitchell Heard each scored an assist.

Chicago's Phillippe Paradis suffered an upper-body injury in the first period and did not return. He is listed as day-to-day.

David Toews debuts with Blackhawks

OSHAWA, Ontario -- Blackhawks fans in attendance at Saturday night's game got their first look at Chicago's second Toews.

In a move announced on Friday, David Toews, the 21-year-old younger brother of Chicago captain Jonathan Toews, was obtained by the Blackhawks from the New York Islanders for future considerations. It was an exciting night for David, as he donned the Blackhawks' infamous sweater for the first time.

"It was great," Toews said. "I've been looking forward to this for a couple of days since I got the call and I had to be flown out here. It was exciting to get out there on the ice -- it was my first game in a few months. It was obviously not the result we wanted, but I think we had a lot of positives tonight and I'll take it into tomorrow."

Cowick leads Sens past Pens

OSHAWA, Ontario – Carried on the back of Corey Cowick, the Ottawa Senators easily dominated the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0 in Saturday’s first game at the Oshawa rookie Tournament.

Cowick had two goals and an assist for the Sens. Cowick’s linemate, Derek Grant, also found the back of the net midway through the first period, while Andre Petersson helped put it away for Ottawa late in the third.

"I thought Corey played very well," Sens coach Kurt Kleinendorst said. "In fact, I would say that in the year now that I’ve spent with him, that’s about as good as I’ve seen him play. We put an ‘A’ on him for a reason. "

Nick Petersen and Ben Street were the standouts for the Penguins, but both were unable to solve Ottawa goaltender Robin Lehner.
