BEAULIEU NAMED THIRD STAR
The Saint John Sea Dogs defenseman got off to a miserable start, hosting one of the worst plus/minus ratings on the team. But Beaulieu, along with a cast of many other Sea Dogs, turned that around this past weekend.
In two wins on the weekend, Beaulieu scored his first goal of the season, added twp helpers, and had a +5 rating. More importantly, he helped guide Saint John to a 6-2 win over the Moncton Wildcats on Friday and a 5-2 win over the Montreal Juniors on Sunday afternoon.
Today, the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft top prospect was named the Telus third star of the week.
Acadie-Bathurst goaltender Oliver Roy is the first star after recording two wins, including a shutout, in two outings. Roy maintained a 0.96 goals-against-average and .968 save percentage during that span. He played his best game of the week on Saturday, pushing away all 32 shots he faced as well as stoning three of the four skaters in the shootout to help the Titan blank the Voltigeurs 1-0. He was named the first star in each of his two starts.
The second star is awarded to P.E.I. Rocket netminder Evan Mosher. The Rocket backstop pushed away 27 shots in a 3-1 win over the Tigres in Victoriaville on Wednesday and then stopped 31 pucks in a 5-2 victory over the Foreurs in Val-d’Or on Saturday. P.E.I. is riding a three-game winning streak.
