NEWKIRK EXTENDS POINT STREAK TO 16 GAMES:
Reece Newkirk is on a heater. The Isles' 2019 fifth-round pick (147th overall) is on a 16-game point streak, which he's been riding since Nov. 30. Newkirk added to his impressive run this past week by recording three points (2G, 1A) in three games.
Newkirk's 16-game point streak is by far the longest of his junior career, toppling his previous best of six-straight games, which he set last season. Newkirk has 21 points (12G, 9A) during his run, which is currently the second-longest point streak in the WHL this season.
Overall, Newkirk is second on the Portland Winterhawks with 47 points (18G, 29A) in 38 games this year.
COSKEY HAS SIX-GOAL WEEK:
Highlighted by a hat-trick against the London Knights, Cole Coskey recorded six goals in three games last week for Saginaw Spirit. Coskey was especially dialed in against the Knights, netting a hat-trick just over halfway through Saginaw's 6-5 win over London on Saturday.
The trick was Coskey's first of the season - second of his OHL career - and first since Jan. 2, 2019. For his efforts, the Isles' 2019 seventh-round pick, was named the first star of the game and the OHL's first star of the night.
Coskey also scored two goals - including the game-winner - in Saginaw's 7-4 win over the Flint Firebirds on Friday night. He also notched two points (1G, 1A) in a 6-5 loss to Flint on Wednesday.
Coskey is riding a five-game goal and point streak, with 11 total points (8G, 3A) over that span. He's second on the team with 54 points (25G, 29A) in 41 games for the Spirit.
BIBEAU RECORDS THREE-POINT WEEK:
Felix Bibeau recorded three points (1G, 2A) in three games last week, helping the Chicoutimi Saguenéens to three-straight wins. Bibeau recorded an assist in an 8-3 win over Halifax on Friday and a goal and an assist in Chicoutimi's 8-2 win over Charlottetown on Saturday. The Isles' 2019 sixth-round pick didn't record a point in Sunday's 3-2 win over Acadie-Bathurst, capping his point streak at four games.
Bibeau is producing at nearly a point-per-game with his new team, recording nine points (2G, 7A) in 10 games with Chicoutimi. Overall, Bibeau has 44 points (19G, 25A) in 41 games between Chicoutimi and Quebec.
BOLDUC SCORES GAME-WINNER FOR SHERBROOKE:
Samuel Bolduc scored the game-winning goal on Sunday night, as the Sherbrooke Phoenix beat the Quebec Remparts 3-2 in overtime. Bolduc's OT winner was the defenseman's second game-deciding goal of the season and first as a member of his new team. Bolduc was named the game's first star as a result.
The Isles' 2019 second-round pick (57th overall) now has seven points (2G, 5A) in eight games with his new club. Overall, Bolduc has 23 points (9G, 14A) in 40 games between Blainville-Boisbriand and Sherbrooke.
ADAMS SCORES FOURTH GWG:
Collin Adams scored the game-winning goal as the University of North Dakota beat Omaha 4-1 on Saturday. The game-winner was Adams' fourth this season, which ranks second on UND. Adams, who has six points (2G, 4A) in his last three game, is second on the team with 19 points (7G, 12A).
GOLYSHEV RECORDS FOUR-POINT WEEK:
Anatoly Golyshev recorded four points (2G, 2A) in three games last week for Avtomobilist in the KHL. Golyshev scored in a 4-3 OT loss to Sibir on Jan. 7, recorded a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over Admiral and potted an assist in a 3-2 win over CSKA. In 30 games this season, Golyshev has 19 points (8G, 11A).
