Dal Colle Heating Up for Oshawa

Michael Dal Colle had a breakthrough week offensively for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League. The 2014 first-round draft pick had seven points (4G, 3A) for the Generals in three games this week, nearly doubling his output from his first 14 games. Dal Colle now has 16 points (5g, 11a) in 17 games this season.

The Oshawa captain posted three consecutive multi-point games. Dal Colle scored twice in a 6-3 win against the Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday. The left winger added a goal and an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Saginaw Spirit on Saturday, as well as a goal and two assists in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Flint Firebirds on Sunday.

Beauvillier’s Consistency is Key for Shawinigan

Anthony Beauvillier continued his steady point production for the Shawinigan Cataractes of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with six points (3G, 3A) in four games, giving him 31 points (14G, 17A) on the season. Beauvillier tallied two assists in a 6-4 win over Acadie-Bathurst on Wednesday and had two goals in an 8-2 win against the Quebec Remparts. The Islanders’ prospect added two more points (1G, 1A) before the end of the week in a 5-4 shootout win over Victoriaville.

Beauvillier has been a big contributor for Shawinigan, scoring 28 points in the team’s 13 wins and the Cataractes have yet to lose a game when he scores a goal. The Islanders 2015 first-round draft pick has points in 14 of the 16 games he has appeared in this season.

Consecutive Shutouts Power the Sound Tigers 

Bridgeport: 10-4-0, 20 pts., 2nd in Atlantic Division, 3rd in Eastern Conference

After dropping a 4-2 decision against the Hershey Bears on Wednesday, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers responded with back-to-back shutout wins against the Springfield Falcons and the Hartford Wolf Pack over the weekend. Both Sound Tigers goalies, Christopher Gibson and Stephon Williams, recorded shutouts over the weekend. Williams stopped all 26 shots in Bridgeport’s 4-0 win over Springfield on Saturday for his first career shutout with Bridgeport. Gibson’s 30 saves produced a 1-0 win over Hartford the following night as he posted his first shutout of the season. Alan Quine scored the game-winner against Springfield, while Jesse Graham scored the lone goal in the win over Hartford.  

Joe Whitney currently leads the AHL with 16 points (5G, 11A) in 14 games played. Bracken Kearns and Quine are also top-five in league scoring with 14 points apiece.

Three Game Win Streak Propels Missouri to First Place 

Missouri: 8-2-1, 17 pts., 1st in Central Division, 1st in Western Conference

The Missouri Mavericks sit atop the ECHL standings with an 8-2-1 record (17 points). The Mavericks began the week with a dramatic 4-3 overtime win on the road against the Quad City Mallards, followed by back-to-back wins against the Wichita Thunder.

Missouri’s offense was driven by a pair of four-point efforts from Jesse Root (2G, 2A) and Kellen Jones (1G, 3A). Root, who is currently second in the ECHL in scoring with 12 points (7G,5A), netted the game winner in overtime against the Mallards.

The Mavericks also swept a home-and-home series with Wichita over the weekend. Parker Milner made 22 saves in a 1-0 win on Saturday, while Matt Finn scored the game winner. Missouri capped off the weekend with a 2-1 win as Milner recorded his second win in as many nights. David de Kastrozza’s first goal of the season would be the difference maker to put the Mavericks win streak at three.
