Fejes scores twice in rout of Elite League standings leader Team Southeast

Hunter Fejes scored twice, and John Draeger and Teddy Blueger each had a goal and two assists to lead Shattuck-St. Mary’s past Team Southeast 8-2 on Sunday, Oct. 23, in an Upper Midwest High School Elite League matchup of standings leaders at Hobbs Ice Center in Eau Claire, Wis.

The teams alternated scoring the first five goals. The score was tied at 2 early in the second period when Shattuck-St. Mary’s (13-1-1) scored three times to take a 5-2 lead into the third.

Fejes scored both his goals in the third period as Shattuck-St. Mary’s finished the regular season on an 11-game win streak. Shattuck-St. Mary’s lone loss came on Oct. 1 to team Wisconsin.

Team Southwest, which had already clinched the regular season league title, dropped to 13-4-3. Two of Team Southwest’s losses have come against Shattuck-St. Mary’s. Team Southeast had one game remaining on its schedule, a matchup against host Team Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon.

Shattuck-St. Mary’s, which annually joins the Elite League two weeks after the rest of the teams, finished in second with 28 points in the standings despite playing six fewer games.

Team Southeast’s Tyler Sheehy of Burnsville scored in the first period and Scott Nelson of Eastview tied it at 2 on a power play just 47 seconds in the second period.

Shattuck-St. Mary’s goaltender Kyle Hayton stopped 24 of 26 shots and lowered his league-best save percentage to .929. Hayton also has the Elite League’s best goals-against average at 1.88.

Anders Franke of Elk River stopped 30 of 38 shots.

Team Southeast lost top defenseman Eric Schurhamer of St. Thomas Academy to a game ejection for butt-ending late in the second period. Schurhamer also received a 5-minute misconduct for the infraction.

Golf COE completes first day at Cog Hill


Nathan Zhao preparing to tee off on his final hole of the day.

The Golf COE participants hit the links today at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont, IL.  Nathan Zhao led the way for the Sabres with a first round total of 75 and only one shot back of the leader in the 13 – 15 age group.  Nathan started on hole 10 and finished his first nine holes in +4 then battled back with 2 birdies and one bogey during his final 9 holes to post a one under par for holes 1 through 9.  Zhao is slated to tee off at 9:21 am on Sunday and is in the final pairing.

Sydney Brickey also had a tale of two nines during her round on Saturday.  Sydney started on hole 10 and closed out her front side in 52 shots before settling down and playing solid during her final nine holes.  Brickey rallied for a back side of 41 which was capped by a birdie on hole number 5.  Brickey’s final score of 93 puts her in the middle of the pack and with a good round tomorrow will likely finish in the top five.

Jake Curwin and Phillip Baumberger, both competing in the boys 16-18 age group couldn’t get anything going all day and finished with scores of 87.  The good news for them is the course played tough for everyone and the low score of the day was a 77 which it tool a hole in one for that to happen.  Both are looking for a drastic improvement tomorrow and hoping to crack the top 10.

Devils put the ‘C’ on Parise’s sweater

Devils put the ‘C’ on Parise’s sweater

Wednesday, 10.05.2011 / 12:57 PM / News

By Dave Lozo - NHL.com Staff Writer

Zach Parise could be playing his final season with the New Jersey Devils, and if it is, he’ll do so wearing a “C” on his sweater.

The Devils made the 27-year-old Parise the ninth captain in team history Wednesday. Forwards Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias were named alternates.

The Devils had been without a permanent captain since trading Jamie Langenbrunner to the Dallas Stars last season.

The move comes after Parise signed a one-year contract this offseason. Parise will become an unrestricted free agent after this season, but has said both his agent and the team will work on a long-term extension during the season.

As per the collective-bargaining agreement, Parise can’t sign a new deal until after Jan. 1.

Parise talked about potentially becoming the team’s captain with NHL.com before training camp, saying: “Of course I would like to. I think right now, with our team, we’re in a transition period where for six years, I was always the youngest guy and all of a sudden I’m one of the oldest. We’re at a point where there are a lot of veteran guys who aren’t with us anymore.

“As a player, you try to take a little bit more of a leadership role every year. Whether you have the ‘C’ or not, it’s not as if players are going to look at me different. That’s just now how it is. Players just respect other players whether they got a ‘C’ on their jersey or not.”

The Devils drafted Parise in the first round of the 2003 Entry Draft. In six seasons with New Jersey, the native of Minneapolis has scored at least 30 goals four times with a career-high of 45 in 2008-09. The left wing is coming off a season where he played just 13 games due to a knee injury suffered at the end of October.

Parise is one of five U.S.-born captains in the NHL, joining the Rangers’ Ryan Callahan, the Kings’ Dustin Brown, the Canadiens’ Brian Gionta and the Blues’ David Backes.
