After four games of frustration, Mikhail Stefanovich finally found the net.
Stefanovich recorded his first three points of the season with a goal and two assists as the Quebec Remparts defeated the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5-3 on Saturday night in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Stefanovich, a Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick, was held scoreless in his first four games with the Remparts this season after attending Maple Leafs training camp. The six-foot-two Belarusian was a dominant offensive force for the Remparts last season with 49 goals and 76 points.
Two of Stefanovich's three points came on the power play as Quebec went 3-for-4 with the man advantage.
The Remparts scored twice in the third period on only four shots to snap a 3-3 tie and won despite being outshot 42-18 by Cape Breton.
Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Drummondville 5 Lewiston 1; Gatineau 3 Montreal 0; Rouyn-Noranda 4 Val-d'Or 2; and Saint John 3 Moncton 2 (OT).
At Quebec, Maxime Gravel and Danick Paquette both scored twice for the Remparts (10-2-3), who won their fourth game in a row to remain tied with the Drummondville Voltigeurs for first overall.
Taylor MacDougall, Cory MacIntosh and Patrick Lapostolle replied for the Screaming Eagles (7-5-2).
Peter Delmas stopped 39 shots, including 16 in the final 20 minutes, to hold off Cape Breton, which got a disappointing 13-save performance from star netminder Olivier Roy.
