The college teams don't start their exhibitions until October but then quickly jump into regular season action. Junior teams start regular season action on September 21st. The WHL has gamesheets for preseason games which makes getting info easy. For the OHL I only get what the recap article gives me so info is harder to come by. Here is a quick recap of some of the exhibition action.

Friday 9/2

OHL Preseason:

Sarnia lost 6-3 to London

Boucher (LW): 2 PPG - 45 seconds apart* 2nd Star

Saturday 9/3:

OHL Preseason:

Plymouth defeated Windsor 2-1

Wedgewood (G): 36 Saves on 37 Shots

Sarnia defeated London 13-2

Boucher (LW): G

Sunday 9/4

WHL Preseason:

Swift Current defeated Edmonton 4-2

Scarlett (D): 2 PIM (Hooking) - Served as an Alternate Captain

Beautiful. I read the other day that Boucher will play with Galyunchuk and Yakupov on the top line. All I could say to that was 'Nice!!'

If that happens that would be a great way for him to break into his rookie year! Sarnia is listing Boucher as a LW so I assume thats where he will see the majority of his time, which makes sense since its said his shot and offensive instincts are the best part of his game.

Is Clermont definitely not playing in juniors? I thought his signing was so he could fill in in Albany in case there were any injuries and he was returning to juniors as an over-age player. If not, it'll be real interesting seeing him at camp next week.

He could've went back to the Q as an overager but it seems the Devils and him both wanted to get his professional career started this season. He's not listed on Gatineau's roster page. It seems the plan is for him to start somewhere in the ECHL with Kinkaid and Frazee splitting time in the AHL. Given Frazee's injury history, Clermont should get some time in the AHL. The depth is nice to have.

i'd assume that Gelinas will still play with the SeaDogs this season? or is he going to the AHL ? he's pretty much the only prospect that i could see play around here... or Maybe Clermont if he stays in the Q

Gelinas will play for Albany this year. Clermont is supposed to start in the ECHL and at some point end up in the AHL.

I was under the impression from what I've read that Clermont was only signed as insurance for the AHL. He was going to play another season in juniors as an overage player, who could be called up on an emergency basis.

I'm looking forward to seeing what some of those other guys can do if they are all making the jump to the AHL though.

Good read on Merrill I suggest clicking the link to get the full scoop.

Key Statistics: After starting out strong with four points in his first three college games, Merrill never looked back during his rookie season, compiling a 7-18-25 line that included two goals in the Big Chill at the Big House against Michigan State and two assists during the NCAA Tournament. Combining that with 70 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating at the other end of the ice, Merrill added a number of honors to his mantle including INCH’s All-Freshman team, the NCAA All-Frozen Four team, and he was a finalist for the CCHA’s Rookie of the Year, Offensive Defenseman of the Year, and Defensive Defenseman of the Year awards.

Mauro is on 2 goals already this season, he only had 3 in 50 games last year, so lets hope that is progress.

OHL:

Plymouth defeated Erie 6-2

Wedgewood (G): 20 Saves on 22 Shots

WHL:

Swift Current lost 4-2 to Regina

Scarlett (D): A, 4 PIM (High Sticking Twice) - Alternate Captain this year

Swiss-A:

HC Lugano defeated Ambri-Piotta 4-2

Jörg (RW): E, 5 SOG

I have no idea what to expect from Plymouth this year, but I wonder if they are going to be better as a team to cut down on shots against to make Wedgewood's life easier this year like they did tonight.

Hi guys, I was wondering how Anton Stralman and Mattias Tedenby is looking/doing.

Do you guys think that Anton will take a place in NJD?
