Pedan powers Storm

The Guelph Storm (Ontario Hockey League) won all three of its games last week, thanks to defenseman Andrey Pedan’s six points (two goals, four assists). The Kaunas, LTU native scored a goal in Guelph’s 6-4 win over Sarnia on Oct. 19, added two assists in an 8-5 victory the next night at Saginaw, and finished with three points (one goal, two assists) in the Storm’s 7-1 triumph on Oct. 21 at Sault Ste. Marie. Pedan ranks second among team defensemen with 10 points and third in the OHL with 40 penalty minutes in 12 games.

Strome and Theoret team up again
Forwards Ryan Strome and Mitchell Theoret teamed up again to lead the Niagara IceDogs (Ontario Hockey League) to a pair of wins last week. In a 3-2 win on Oct. 18 vs. Brampton, Theoret assisted on Strome’s first period goal before Strome returned the favor on Theoret’s marker in the second period. Theoret also earned the primary helper on the overtime game-winner. On Oct. 20, Strome assisted on a goal with less than a second remaining in the first period as Niagara skated to a 4-2 win over Kingston. Strome is tied for eighth in the OHL with 17 points in 13 games, three points off the league lead.

Odds and Ends
Defenseman Robbie Russo (Notre Dame/CCHA) scored the game-winning goal on Oct. 19 vs. Minnesota. Teammate and fellow Islanders prospect Anders Lee assisted on the goal … Defenseman Adam Pelech (Erie/OHL) scored a goal and an assist in three games last week and leads team defensemen with nine points (two goals, seven assists) … Goaltender Mikko Koskinen (KalPa Kuopio/SM-liiga) won both games he started last week, including a 22-save overtime shutout over Espoo. He leads league goaltenders with at least four games played with a 1.94 GAA and is tied for the league lead with two shutouts.
