Prospect Park: Tired Hockey On Sunday

In News, Prospect Park by Jess Rubenstein

Not a fan of the way the CHL schedules games at times as it can lead to some tired hockey. Sunday was a great example of it as three New York Ranger prospects wound up playing three games this week. Two played their three games in under three days and that is begging for some of these kids to wind up getting hurt.

Tim Gettinger was playing his third game in five days as his Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds bested Windsor 5-2. Gettinger had a secondary assist on one shot with a +1 to give him a four-game scoring streak (2-4-6).

For Gettinger, his point gives him a 32-32-64 mark in 60 games with a +32 and 42 PIMs. The Greyhounds extended their unbeaten streak to eight games (7-0-1).

Sean Day playing his third game in 2.5 days had an assist as his Kingston Frontenacs edged North Bay 4-3 via the shootout. Day had a secondary assist on Kingston’s first goal as the Frontenacs broke a four-game winless streak (0-3-1).

Day was also a -1 on one shot as he improved to 5-34-39 on the season.

Libor Hajek returned to the Regina lineup after missing yesterday’s game with an illness. The younger defender was scoreless as Regina defeated Calgary 7-4 on the road.

Ty Ronning playing his third game in 2.5 days was scoreless as his Vancouver Giants were spanked 6-1 by Everett. Ronning was scoreless on two shots and a -2.
