Jacket Youngsters Edge Blues

The CBJ prospects rebounded from a 2 - 1 loss to Minnesota yesterday, posting a 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Traverse City.

Matt Calvert netted a hat trick for the young Jackets, with two of the goals unassisted. A 5th Round pick in the 2008 Entry Draft, Calvert now has 4 points in two games in the Prospects Tournament. John Moore garnered an assist, with Thomas Kubalik and Cass Mappin providing the other goals.

This was obviously a chippy affair, as 24 penalties were handed out, including 9 roughing, 6 fighting majors, an unsportsmanlike conduct call and assorted slashing infractions. The Jackets had two shorthanded goals, but converted only 1 of 10 power play opportunities. Hopefully this will not be an omen for the big club . . .

The prospects have tomorrow off, and return to action Wednesday against Dallas.
