Russia, QMJHL tied after one period

After one period, Team QMJHL and Team Russia are tied 1-1 in the second game of their portion of the Subway Super Series, in Val-d'Or, Quebec.

Team QMJHL opened the scoring less than a minute in, when Florida Panthers prospect Francis Beauvillier scored just 59 seconds into the game. Brent Andrews won a draw in Team Russia's end straight back to defenseman James Melindy at the blue line. Melindy moved the puck to Beauvillier at the outside edge of the right circle. Beauvillier's quick shot went past goalie Andrey Vasilevskiy to make it 1-0.

The hosts nearly made it 2-0 when Charles Hudon had a shorthanded breakaway moments later, but Vasilevskiy made the save.

Sharks activate fuel cells, attack carbon emissions

Sharks Sports & Entertainment (SSE) announced this month the activation of Bloom Energy Servers™ at HP Pavilion in San Jose, home of the Sharks. Installation of these energy servers will provide a cleaner, more reliable and more affordable energy source to power the venue.

With the implementation of the Bloom Energy Servers, HP Pavilion at San Jose becomes the first multi-purpose sports and entertainment facility to utilize fuel cell technology as a supplemental electricity source. Sharks Sports & Entertainment also utilizes Bloom Energy Servers™ at Sharks Ice at San Jose, a public recreational ice facility owned by the City of San Jose and managed by SSE.

“Congratulations to HP Pavilion for being the first arena in the nation to implement Bloom Energy’s cutting-edge fuel cell technology,” said San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed. “As the capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose is a hub of clean tech innovation, and it is fitting that our arena would showcase how investing in renewable energy can reduce long-term operating costs and save energy.”

The Bloom boxes (two 200kw servers) will replace approximately 90% of the electrical utility power at HP Pavilion used during non-event hours and approximately 25% used on a Sharks game day. Due to the efficiency of the Bloom box, HP Pavilion at San Jose will reduce its carbon footprint by 4.8 million pounds of CO2 over a ten-year period. That equates to taking 427 passenger vehicles off the road.

“We are pleased to be utilizing the technology pioneered by Bloom Energy to reduce the carbon footprint of HP Pavilion at San Jose,” said Jim Goddard, General Manager at HP Pavilion at San Jose.

Connor McDavid lighting it up as a 15-year-old rookie

Erie Otters forward Connor McDavid is not eligible for the NHL Draft until 2015, but he has certainly grabbed the attention of those scouts in attendance as a 15-year-old rookie in the Ontario Hockey League this season.

McDavid, as you may know, was granted exceptional player status on March 21, 2012, by Hockey Canada to be eligible for the 2012 OHL Priority Selection. He joined John Tavares and Aaron Ekblad as the only players to be awarded that honor and was promptly drafted first overall by the Otters.

Erie is certainly reaping the benefits.

Fitzgerald leads U.S. at World Junior A opener

Ryan Fitzgerald opened eyes when he had three assists at the CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game in Buffalo in September. The 2013 NHL Draft prospect did it again Monday playing for the U.S. at the World Junior A Challenge.

Fitzgerald, who plays for Valley Warriors of the Eastern Junior Hockey League, had a hat trick to lead the U.S. to a 9-1 opening-game rout of Canada East.

The tournament, being played in Yarmouth, N.S., runs through Nov. 12.

A C-rated skater in NHL Central Skating's preliminary rankings of players to watch for this year's draft, Fitzgerald scored Team USA's first two goals, then closed the first by completing his hat trick with a power-play goal with 30 seconds left in the period.

Taylor Cammarata made it 4-0 with a power-play goal at 6:13 of the second, and after a shorthanded goal later in the second, defenseman Dan Molenaar made it 7-0 with a goal seven seconds into the third.

Eamon McAdam stopped 26 of 27 shots, including 15 of 16 in the third, for the win. McAdam, who plays for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League, earned a B rating from Central Scouting, as well as the accolades of his coach.
