Week of Oct. 23-29

Brodie Dupont -- Dupont stretched his point-scoring streak to 10 games this week, the second most in the WHL behind the Everett Silvertips' Zach Hamill with 12. The physical center had an assist on Oct. 24 against Red Deer, had the game-winning goal at Lethbridge on Oct. 25, netted a pair of goals against Regina on Oct. 27, and then added another tally on Oct. 29 vs. Swift Current. During the 10-game span, Dupont has recorded eight goals and seven assists for 15 points. The streak is a career high for Dupont, surpassing an eight-game streak from last season.

Marc-Andre Cliche --What started out a spectacular week took a turn for the worse when Cliche suffered a head injury on against Oct. 28. Early in the first period, the Lewiston captain fell face-first into the boards during MAINEiacs' 5-2 win over St. John's. Earlier in the week, he was named first star with a three-point performance (one goal, two assists) on Oct. 25 against Victoriaville. Cliche is being evaluated to determine if he suffered a concussion.

Jan Marek -- Marek tallied two of Magnitogorsk's three goals on Oct. 29 in a shutout victory at St. Petersburg. Through 19 games, the Blueshirts' eighth round selection, 243rd overall, in the 2003 NHL entry draft has 13 goals and six assists for 19 points and 26 penalty minutes.

Ryan Hillier -- This year's third-round draft choice had a stellar week, notching two goals in as many games. On Oct. 27 he scored the game's first goal at 8:49 of the opening period of a 3-2 loss to Val d'Or, while on Oct. 28 he netted a short-handed goal in the second period of a 7-6 overtime victory against Rouyn-Noranda.

Ryan Russell -- After an impressive start to the season that saw Russell tally 10 goals and eight assists for 18 points in 12 games, he suffered a broken finger in the Oct. 20 game against Swift Current and may miss up to 4-6 weeks.

Marc Staal -- After recording an assist on Oct. 28 against Peterborough, the Rangers' 2005 first-round draft pick had a pair of assists in Sudbury's 7-4 victory at Brampton the following night. On the season, Staal has three goals and six assists with 19 penalty minutes in 13 contests.

Bobby Sanguinetti -- This year's first-round draft choice recorded a two-point game on Oct. 28 against Erie. His pair of assists gave him seven on the young season.

Tom Pyatt -- Pyatt continued to enjoy a remarkable 2006-07 campaign. The crafty center picked up a goal and an assist on Oct. 28 in a 4-1 victory over Toronto, earning second star honors in the process. The next night, he tallied the opening goal at 13:33 of the first in another Saginaw victory.

Tomas Zaborsky -- Zaborsky was named the first star of the game on Oct. 28 vs. Toronto after tallying three assists in a 4-1 victory. His second assist came on fellow Rangers prospect Tom Pyatt's goal in the second period.

Darin Olver -- The Wildcats forward notched his first goal of the season and was named third star of the game in a 2-0 victory on Oct. 27 against Ohio State.

Billy Ryan -- Ryan notched the lone assist on the game-winning goal in No. 1 Maine's 4-1 victory over UMass.

Ken Roche -- Roche assisted on Boston University's only goal in a 2-1 loss on Oct. 27. In four games, the pivot has two goals and three assists for five points.
