COCKERILL NETS FIRST COLLEGE GOALS, POINTS
Boston University's (BU) Logan Cockerill recorded his first four collegiate points - including his first two goals - in a pair of games against the University of Maine over the weekend.
Cockerill's first point was an assist, picking up the primary helper on Kasper Kotkansalo first-period goal, putting the BU Terriers up 1-0. The 18-year-old scored his first goal in the second period, burying a feed from the slot past Jeremy Swayman. The Terriers lost Friday's contest 5-2, but Cockerill had a hand in both of BU's goals.
Cockerill followed up his two-point breakout with another pair of points in BU's 7-0 win over Maine on Saturday. The Brighton, MI native was in on the first and last goals of the offensive onslaught, assisting on BU's icebreaker and capping the night with a power-play goal to cement the 7-0 Terriers win.
The Islanders' 2017 seventh-round pick (201st overall) now has four points in 13 games this season. Cockerill looks to extend his point streak to three games when BU visits Cornell on Saturday.
SOROKIN SHUTS OUT KAZAN
Ilya Sorokin picked up his fourth shutout of the season on Friday, making 13 saves in CSKA's 3-0 win over Kazan Ak Bars.
It was a relatively easy shutout for the Isles 2014 third-rounder, who picked up his 13th win of the season in the process. Sorokin stopped 21-of-23 shots in CSKA's 3-2 shootout loss to Neftekhimik on Sunday to go 1-0-1 last week.
The Russian-born goaltender is 13-5-3 with a 1.70 goals-against average, a .919 save percentage and four shutouts this season. Sorokin's KHL career save percentage climbed to .924.
Moscow CSKA next plays on Wednesday, November 22nd against HC Sochi.
PASTUJOV SCORES THIRD GOAL, SURPASSES FRESHMAN POINT TOTAL
Nick Pastujov notched his third goal of the season on Saturday as the University of Michigan tied Wisconsin 4-4.
Pastujov gave Michigan a 4-3 lead in the third period, but Wisconsin tied the score with 1:10 to play in the contest before the Wolverines prevailed in a shootout to give them an extra conference point. Michigan is 2-2-2 in-conference this season.
The Islanders' 2016 seventh-round pick (193rd overall), now has four points (3G, 1A) in eight games in his sophomore season, already eclipsing his freshman point totals (1G, 2A).
Michigan continues Big 10-play next weekend when they take on Ohio State in a two-game set.
