The Juniors Report

The Montreal Canadiens currently feature prospects playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), the Western Hockey League (WHL), the USHL (United States Hockey League) and the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). These leagues can be considered the primary conduit towards professional hockey in North America.

Here's how the players in the aforementioned leagues performed last week:

Michael McNiven OHL 3 1 1 0 2.31 .918 0

Daniel Audette: It was a rather quiet week for Audette with Sherbrooke Phoenix, who had an auspicious start to the season with four goals and ten assists in his first six games. He went without a point in his first game, a 5-2 loss to the Val d'Or Foreurs and left the game injured after being charged by an opposing player. He missed the following game recovering from an injury and returned to another flat night with no points in a 4-1 win over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. Audette is currently 16th overall in scoring in the QMJHL.

Jeremiah Addison: Addison picked up his scoring this past week after a quiet start to the year with one point in his first four games with the Ottawa 67s. He scored a goal and assist in his first game, a 4-2 win over the Oshawa Generals. He went without a point in his next game, a 4-0 win over the Barrie Colts. He collected an assist in his final game, a 7-5 win over the Owen Sound Attack.

Simon Bourque: It was a short and quiet week for the Rimouski Oceanic blueliner. Bourque went without a point in his first game, a 4-2 win over the Quebec Remparts. He marked an assist in his next game, a 3-2 loss to the Gatineau Olympiques.

Matt Bradley: It was a flat week for the Medicine Hat Tigers forward. Bradley went scoreless in a 6-5 loss to the Kelowna Rockets and along with the rest of his team was shut out in a 7-0 loss to the Lethbridge Hurricanes..

Noah Juulsen: While he hasn't been back with his team for long, Juulsen is quickly rising to the top of Everett's scoring list. He went without a point in his first game of the weekend, a 5-4 overtime win over the Spokane Chiefs.

He would break out in the next game, scoring the opening goal of the game and later adding two assists, all on the power play as his team bested the Prince Albert Raiders 5-2. Juulsen's two goals and two assists rank him 2nd on the team in points.

Jake Evans: While his season has not officially started, Evans warmed his stick up this past week with some exhibition play for the University of Notre Dame. He scored a goal and assist in his first game, a 5-2 win over the University of Guelph. He went without a point in a 2-2 tie against the The Team USA Under-18 team.

Nikolas Koberstein; It was a short week for Koberstein with the University of Alaska Fairbanks,  he went without a point in their first game, a 3-0 loss to St Cloud State University. He was a healthy scratch for the following game.

Hayden Hawkey: It appears Hawkey will have to wait a bit longer for his NCAA debut with Providence College as he sat out both of their games this past weekend.

Michael McNiven: McNiven had a fairly even week with the Owen Sound Atttack. he allowed 3 goals on 23 shots in his first start, a 3-1 loss to the Guelph Storm.  He gained a win in his next start, stopping 32 of 33 shots to back his team in a 2-1 win over the London Knights. In a rather abrupt appearance, he played eleven minutes after his team's starter was pulled in a rather wild 7-5 loss to the Ottawa 67s, he allowed one goal on 5 shots in the brief stint. McNiven has posted a .927 save percentage this season, ranking him sixth overall in the OHL in that category.
