Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Josh Shalla of the Saginaw Spirit is the OHL Player of the Week for the week ending January 15 after leading the league with eight points in three games scoring two goals with six assists and a plus-minus rating of plus-1.
Shalla led the Spirit to a 4-2 win over the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors on Sunday night scoring a goal and two assists as first star of the contest. Last night Shalla also reached a personal milestone against the Majors as his first period goal, his 21st of the season, was also goal number 100 as a member of the Spirit becoming just the second player to reach the mark since the franchise moved to Saginaw in 2002. His week also included a three-point night on Saturday with a goal and two assists despite a 5-4 shootout loss to the London Knights, and a two-assist game on Friday in a 5-4 loss to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
Shalla, a 20-year-old from Whitby, ON, is playing in his fifth OHL season...

If the Nashville Predators were, in fact, showcasing back-up goaltender Anders Lindback tonight… they showcased a one-man show.

In front of 18,200 inside Madison Square Garden (and in front of a national TV audience), the Preds stunk up the place, losing 3-0.
Nashville managed just 27 shots, including only one during 4:05...

Even without all-star Ryan Suter, the Predators are a damn good team. A team with balanced scoring. A hard working team. A team with another superstar defenseman in Shea Weber, and a team with good speed, and an outstanding coach. The Predators are very similar to the New York Rangers…without the budget. That budget, though, did not really help the Rangers at all, as the...
