In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Riley Hughes (Victoria Grizzlies)

Just three Ranger prospects saw action on Sunday with Riley Hughes as the only one putting up points. Hughes had a 1-1-2 effort as his Victoria Grizzlies blanked the Chilliwack Chiefs 6-0 in BCHL action. Hughes recorded an unassisted goal in the third period (his fourth) as well as a primary assist (fourth also the third period).

The Grizzlies earned their fourth straight win as they took over first place in the BCHL’s Island Division with a record of 6-3. Hughes is 4-4-8 in nine games good for seventh place among BCHL rookie scoring. Hughes who the Rangers selected in the seventh round of the 2018 NHL Entry draft has a signed letter of intent to play for Northeastern next year.

Maybe Nico Gross and his Oshawa Generals need to play only the North Bay Battalion. For the second time this week, the Generals defeated the Battalion, this time it was 7-5. The Generals have only two wins this season both against the Battalion.

Gross was scoreless on zero shots but was a +1 for the game. The young defender from Pontresina, Switzerland has more PIMs (four) than points (zero) so far this season. The Generals are 2-2 on the season.

Joey Keane got to wear the “A” on his uniform once again but it was enough to prevent his Barrie Colts from a 3-2 overtime loss to the Sudbury Wolves. Keane was scoreless on five shots and a tripping minor. It was a big turnaround from Thursday when the Colts blasted the Wolves 10-3. Keane is 4-1-5 after four games while his team is 2-1-1-0.
