London tidbits:
  • #12 former 67s Pieter Schinkelshoek's stats in the 6 games he has played since joining the Knights after Thanksgiving: 1G, 1A and 9PIMs
  • #6 Scott Harrington (D) is London's 2009 first round pick (19th overall) and is London's highest performing rookie this year so far with 4 assists, a +10 with 0 PIMs in the 8 games he has played
  • #41 Michael Hutchinson (G) is the 2008 third round pick (77th overall) of Boston
  • #71 Philip Varone (F) is the 2009 fifth round pick (147th overall) of San Jose
  • #77 Zac Rinaldo (F) is the 2008 sixth round pick (178th overall) of Philadelphia
  • #91 Nazim Kadri (F) is the 2009 first round pick (7th overall) of Toronto
  • #93 Justin Taylor is the 2007 sixth round pick (180th overall) of Washington
  • I have read many comments regarding Killer's apparent penchant for acquiring local players, often couched as a criticism. A quick look at the London roster shows 9 players who's hometown is listed as London. There are no players on the roster from Ottawa.

I haven't had a chance to watch last night's game against Guelph (PVR'd it) but caught the last two minutes on the radio on my way home from my evening's outing. Sounds like the team (and it's finally a full team) played a strong game. If you missed the Team1200 call, Jon Abbott and Kenny Walls of the Team 1200 made it a 67s sweep for the three stars: 1st - Gibbons (2 goals against his former team); 2nd - Thomas Nesbitt (1G, 2A); 3rd - Julien Demers (2A); Hardest Working 67s: Tyler Cuma. Here's the game sheet.

With his goal and assist, Ryan Martindale has increased his league-leading game streak to 16 games and is now in 9th place in the league in scoring with 27 points. He's the second best scorer in the Eastern Conference, only behind Barrie's Luke Pither who also has 27 points but has two more goals than Ryan.
