Individual Notes

Stefan Matteau- Todd Cordell tweeted yesterday that Junior has been suspended again, this time for a hit from behind. Add in the fact that he's been pointless the entire week (with 11 PIMs on top of that), it wasn't exactly the greatest week for him. On the other hand, his team's doing well.

Individual Notes

Reid Boucher- Boucher didn't have a great week this week, but neither did the Sting. Of course, looking at his point totals for the year, this looks like his first rough patch of the season. If the Sting start rolling again, Boucher should be able to put up points again.

Ben Johnson- Johnson's early season struggles continue, as he only has 5 points in 13 games so far after recording a point this week. The Spitfires aren't the best team, but they're currently the best team in the Western Division of the OHL.

Ben Thomson- Thomson had a pretty solid week, with 3 points as the Kitchener Rangers won all three games they played this week. He also got into a fight with Scott Sabourin, his first fight of the year. On a surprising note, Thomson's 5th on his team in scoring and he's only fought once in 10 games. While a lot of us were expecting him to just goon it up, it looks like he's improving in other areas. Not much to get excited about though.

Individual Notes

Graham Black- Black snapped a 4 game point streak last Wednesday, but he's already started up on a 3 game point streak after the scoreless effort. While Black is continuing to be a consistent performer for Swift Current, they've recently ran into a rough patch losing 4 out of their last 5 games.

Reece Scarlett- Scarlett hasn't recorded a point in the last 5 games.

Alexander Kerfoot- Kerfoot was held pointless in the only game Coquitlam played last week. No big deal really.
