What to watch for this weekend

Ryan Callahan and the Guelph Storm skate in three games in four days between Thursday and Sunday. On Nov. 10 they travel to Windsor to take on the Spitfires, where they fell 5-4 in the season opener without Callahan who joined the team six games into the season. Nov. 11 they face off at home against New York Rangers 2005 first round draft choice Marc Staal and the Sudbury Wolves. They finish the weekend with a matinee against Kitchener on Nov. 13. Look for Callahan to light it up on Sunday as he has torched Kitchener for three goals and two assists for five points against them already this season.

Brandon Dubinsky and the Portland Winter Hawks will be at home this weekend against Seattle on Nov. 12 and Spokane on Nov. 13. The first time the Winter Hawks faced Seattle this season, he registered three points with one goal and two assist. He has also been incredible against Spokane having three point games in each of the three meetings this season, two games with one goal and two assists and one game with two goals and one assist. Look for Dubinsky to continue his three game scoring streak this weekend.

Tom Pyatt and the Saginaw Spirit embark on their second straight "three games in three days" weekend, travelling on the road for all three games against Oshawa, Belleville, and Brampton. In his first game against Oshawa on Nov. 5, Pyatt notched one goal and two assists, totaling three points. Previous to that, he tallied one goal against Belleville in their 4-2 victory on Oct. 23. While this is Saginaw's first match against Brampton, look for Pyatt to add them to the long list of teams he has torched thus far this season.

Jonathan Paiement, Marc-Andre Cliche, and the Lewiston MAINEiacs play away and at home against Moncton this weekend on Friday and Sunday. Lewiston has struggled against the Wildcats, going 1-3-0 this year and losing their last meeting 7-2. Cliché has an assist this year against Moncton, while Paiement has yet to score.

Dylan Reese and the Harvard Crimson face Cornell this weekend in a battle of Ivy League Hockey rivals. Harvard comes into the game with a 2-1 record, both overall and in the conference; while, Cornell is 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the conference. Reese comes into the game with a goal, which he scored in Harvard's season opening 6-2 win over Dartmouth.

Ryan Russell and the Kootenay Ice will be at home this weekend against Everett on Saturday and Lethbridge on Sunday. Kootenay has yet to face either team so far this season, but look for Russell to continue his four game scoring streak.

Billy Ryan and the Maine Black Bears take on UMass Lowell and New Hampshire this weekend. The last time Maine and Lowell met last year, Ryan had one goal in a 5-1 win. He has one goal and two assists in five career games against the Blackhawks. The last time Maine and New Hampshire faced, Ryan did not register any points; however, he has two goals and one assist in three career games vs. the Wildcats.
