Dawes in Striking Distance of Ice Record
Kootenay forward Nigel Dawes is within striking distance of a major milestone as he enters this weekend's road swing through Kamloops (Friday) and Vancouver (Sunday). The WHL sniper needs only one goal
to move into first place on the Kootenay franchise all-time goals list.
Edmonton Oilers forward Jarret Stoll is currently the Ice leader with 124 goals scored from 1997-98 to 2001-02. Dawes also needs nine assists to move into fifth place on franchise all-time assists list. New York's fifth round pick in the 2003 NHL Draft leads the Ice with 14 goals and 21 points in 20 games this season.
Callahan Goes for 15
Guelph Storm captain Ryan Callahan looks to stay on the scoresheet for the 15th stratight game on Friday as the Storm host the Sarnia Sting in OHL action.
Callahan tallied a goal in Guelph's 3-1 loss to Kitchener on Sunday to extend his streak to 14 games. The loss marked Guelph's third straight.
With the goal, Callahan boosted his point totals for the hot streak to 17 points (12 goals, five assists) since October 6. For the season, the Rochester, New York native has registered 14 goals and six assists for 20 points to lead his team in scoring.
Moncton's Graham Shoots for Lucky Seven
Moncton forward Bruce Graham has collected a point in six straight games and he looks to add to that streak on Friday as the Wildcats visit Acadie-Bathurst in QMJHL action.
Entering this weekend's action, the 6-6, 235-lbs. forward has posted a six-game point streak dating back to October 29, registering 10 points over the span.
He has also collected points in 10 of last 13 games (10 goals and seven assists for 17 points). Graham currently ranks first on the WildCats with 13 goals and third on the team with 22 points.
Olver Looks to Pick up Where he Left Off
Fresh off a four point effort on November 6 vs. Michigan Tech, including a hat trick, Northern Michigan forward Darin Olver looks to continue his strong offensive production of late as #11 ranked NMU (5-1-2) faces #14 ranked Ohio State (7-3-0) in a weekend set on Saturday and Sunday.
Olver is riding a three-game assist/point streak, collecting three goals and four assists for seven points over the span. A second round pick by New York in the 2004 NHL Draft, he is currently tied for first on the team with 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in eight games.
