Monday updates: Riopel and Owls

The QMJHL has announced its players of the week:
The offensive player is Dany Massé of the Drummondville Voltigeurs, who put up 4 goals and 5 assists in four road games this week. Also rans include Paul Byron (Gatineau), Maxime Legault (Shawinigan) and Jean-Philip Chabot (Gatineau).

Once again the defensive player of the week is Moncton Wildcats goaltender Nicola Riopel. This is Nicola's third win.

In two wins over the Screaming Eagles and the Océanic, he maintained a 1.00 goals-against-average and .966 save percentage. Riopel leads all QMJHL goaltenders in wins with 21. The Wildcats sit in first place in the Atlantic division standings and have registered at least one point in eight of their last ten contests.
Maxime Clermont (Gatineau), Simon Lacroix (Shawinigan) and Marc-Antoine Desnoyers (Drummondville) were also nominated.

As for the Sportsnet CHL Who's hot/Who's not list:
Hot Team: Drummondville Voltigeurs
Hot Player: Dany Massé (Drummondville Voltigeurs)
Cold Team: PEI Rocket
Cold Player: Marco Cousineau (Baie-Comeau Drakkar)

Speaking of a cold PEI team, let's hope the stay cold. The Moose take on the PEI Rocket in Charlottetown this coming Wednesday. In two previous contests the Rocket have defeated the Mooseheads 5-2 and 7-2. Sad hey? There is one team the Rocket can pound, and that team appears to be the Mooseheads. Both teams have played 33 games but the Rocket currently sit 6 points up on the Moose for 5th place in the Atlantic division. PEI have an 11,16, 2 and 4 record. The Moose have one less win with a 10, 21, 1, and 1 record.

PEI's strength lies in the power of their goaltending saviour Bobby Nadeau. Despite the team sitting 14th place in the league, dreamy edible Bobby Nadeau sits 6th in the league in save %, with a 0.913, as well as having a respectable 3.03 GAA (hey it's the Q, don't judge you defensively minded WHL folk). mmmmmmmmmmm Bobby Nadeau.

I don't know what a "Moose light Star" is but I do know that Nadeau has 27 of them. Classy. These Stars appear to be named after a light version of my hockey team, the Mooseheads.

Conclusion - Bobby should be playing for me. Dearest Bobby, put on your glasses, your 27 star-points, your Q defensive player of the week award for Oct 27th to Nov 2nd, your 2007-2008 Jacques-Plante Trophy, and that Academic Award from last year and meet me behind the bookcases in the University Library for a make-out session.

I hope Bobby is not the jealous type because now he will have to share me with my new adopted WHL goalie, Drew Owsley of the Tri-City Americans. He is tiny and adorable. He stops pucks. Life must be hard when you are one of three goalies on a team where Chet Pickard gets to be 'the man' on most nights. Thusly, my little Owl needs more love. I must thank "Dave Schultz" for letting me borrow her baby goalie and for this loverly picture.
