: The yo-yo life continues for Andrighetto, who has made his way back into the Canadiens lineup this past week, but he did not record any points.
Mark Barberio: The leader of the IceCaps defense is making it very hard for Michel Therrien to keep him out of the lineup, he recorded another assist in a 4-3 loss to the Flyers.
Mac Bennett: The defenseman played in both games against Portland, but failed to record any points.
Lucas Lessio: The young forward continues to establish himself as a top player in St. John's. He notched a single assist on Bud Holloway's ninth goal of the year.
Gabriel Dumont: The IceCaps captain is having a strong run of play after a dismal start to this season, he notched his ninth goal of the year on the powerplay in a 5-1 loss on Saturday.
Joel Hanley: No points to report for Hanley this week, who's only play of note was a major for boarding in a 4-1 loss to the Portland Pirates.
Brett Lernout: With the offense stalled out, the rookie blueliner failed to record any points this weekend.
Connor Crisp: Still out with an injury.
Darren Dietz: Dietz also fell victim to the poor team play against Portland. He did not record a point, but managed four shots on goal.
Morgan Ellis: A strong season this year for Ellis, who notched an assist on a Bud Holloway goal Friday night.
Jacob de la Rose: The young Swede is putting in consistent performances game in and game out following an injury. He grabbed another assist this week.

: A long stint on the IR hasn't slowed down the rookie German, who notched an assist again this week on a Gabriel Dumont goal..
: Bozon is having a pretty tough rookie season. He was recalled to St. John's, but was a healthy scratch before being demoted back to the Brampton Beast.
: Since returning from his battle with post-concussion syndrome, Bournival has become one of the IceCaps best overall forwards. Even when he isn't on the score sheet, he's making an impact with his speed and forechecking ability.
Max Friberg: Acquired last week for goaltender Dustin Tokarski, the young Swedish forward played in one game for the IceCaps and did not record a point.
