When Vasily Glotov (2016, seventh round) was traded last offseason from the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles to the Shawinigan Cataractes, his new club knew they were getting an offensive talent. While the Cataractes have been mired in last place in the 18-team league for most of the season, the Russian shooter has managed to exceed expectations as a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing campaign.
Glotov maintained his frenetic scoring pace Friday, getting to the slot to pot his 24th goal of the year as Shawinigan came up short in a 5-2 loss at Rimouski.
The marker extended Glotov's goal-scoring streak to six games while giving him points in eight consecutive outings. Both streaks were the longest of Glotov's two-year Quebec Major Junior Hockey League career.
