Wednesday night prospect hockey was a mixed bag for New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects but at least 1 prospect hit a career milestone.
Goalie Scott Stajcer (NYR 2009 5th)
earned his 50th OHL career win leading his Owen Sound Attack to a 3-1 win over the Erie Otters. Stajcer named the game's first star stopped 32 out of the 33 shots he faced as to give the Attack their 4th straight win.
Stajcer who has been somewhat rotating the starting goalie job with Jordan Binnington had a shut out going until the Otters scored with 2:55 left in the game. Still Stajcer's numbers have been on the upswing as he evened his record at 3-3-1-1 with a 2.38 goals against and a 0.928 save percentage.
Brendan Kichton (NYI 2011 5th)
set up Max Reinhart's shorthanded goal at 2:05 of the third period to help Team WHL defeat Team Russia 5-2 in game 5 of the Subway Super Series. The goal was the 4th of the game for Team WHL and broke the game open.
The Canadian teams improved to 2-2-0-1 in the series as Russia falls to 2-3-0-0 with the final game set for Thursday evening in Moose Jaw. Ranger prospects Dylan McIlrath (alternate captain) and Michael St. Croix will play for Team WHL who are offering a FREE webcast

had a goal but it was not enough to stop the Belleville Bulls from defeating his Peterborough Petes 6-3. Yogan's goal was his 7th of the season came at 19:24 of the 2nd period ending a 6 goal run by the Bulls.
Yogan has a 5 game scoring streak going (3-4-7) as he improves to 7-8-15 on the season. Teammate Peter Ceresnak (NYR 2011 6th)
was scoreless and a -2 for the Petes along with a slashing minor to show for his night.
Finally Sam Noreau (NYR 2011 5th)
was scoreless but registered 2 good hits as his Baie-Comeau Drakkar lost their 3rd straight game, this time 4-2 to the Quebec Remparts.
