Notes & Observations

  • It’s the battle of the rookies on defense as IceCaps Brenden Kichton (4g 12a 22gms) takes on Cody Ceci (2g 13a 20gms). Kichton, a 21-year-old out of Spruce Grove, Alberta was a seventh round pick by the Winnipeg Jets while the 19-year-old Ceci is a first rounder from Ottawa. They are fifth and sixth respectively in rookie defensman scoring in the league.
  • B-Sens have fallen to fifth place at 21.7% on the pp and St. John’s register a 20.5% good for 7th place. IceCaps sits on the pk in 15th at 83.2% and Sens have improved to 84.2% for 10th position.
  • I wonder how much is left in the tank as the IceCaps have been on the road since November 22nd and this will be their sixth in a row. Goaltender Eddie Pasquale (9-8-1-0 2.39gaa) has played in four of those games posting a 2-2 record.

 

Three Cogs in the Machine

St. John’s IceCaps: Forwards Eric O’Dell (10g 11a 21gms), Kael Mouillierat (5g 13a 22gms) and Andrew Gordon (7g 7a 22gms).

Binghamton: Forwards Mike Hoffman (10g 14a 20gms) and Stephane Da Costa (6g 13a 17gms), Defensman Fredrik Claesson (+15).

Head-to-Head Season Results
