Game two of the 2012 Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge presented by
Huff Estates in memory of Peter Huff featured the first action for both
the CCHL and the QJAAAHL, with the CCHL Yzerman Division All-Stars
squaring off against the QJAAAHL St-Louis All-Stars.
Period one, although fairly even in the shot totals (13-11 for the
CCHL), saw the Yzerman Division take a 2-0 lead into the break. First
Team Canada East star Dalen Hedges of the Nepean Raiders scored midway
through the period and he was followed up by Fabian Walsh of the Kanata
Stallions. Netminder Matt Zawadzki of the Nepean Raiders shut the door
on the QJAAAHL in the first.
After falling behind, the QJAAAHL St-Louis All-Stars came out firing in
period two and quickly tied the game up with two goals in the first two
minutes of the frame. Alexandre Bergeron of Saint Leonard got his team
on the board just 51 seconds in and teammate Jean-Kristoff Grenier of
Vaudreuil-Dorion knotted the game at two less than a minute later.
Emilio Audi of the Pembroke Lumber Kings would restore the CCHL Yzerman
lead, but with less than five minutes remaining in the game, Kevin
Fiset of the Saint Jerome Panthers once again tied the game for Team
St-Louis with a power play goal at 15:42 and we were off to our second
shootout in as many games.
After Hedges for the CCHL and Joakim Arsenault (Sainte-Agathe) for the
QJAAAHL were both stopped, Ben Robillard (Ottawa) for the CCHL and
Felipe Corbo (Valleyfield) would both score. The goaltenders came up
big in the third round of shots with stops on Derian Plouffe (Kanata) of
the CCHL and Jeremie Janneteau (Lachine) of the QJAAAHL. Team St-Louis
netminder Mathieu Bezeau (Lachine) then made his biggest stop of the
game on Ryan Collins (Ottawa) and Bezeau’s teammate Marc-Andre Levasseur
(Sainte-Jerome) won the game for the QJAAAHL, 4-3, in the fourth round
of the shootout.
The Player of the Game for Team CCHL Yzerman was Derian Plouffe of the
Kanata Stallions, while Jean-Kristoff Grenier of the Vaudreuil-Dorion
Mustangs was named Player of the Game for Team QJAAAHL St-Louis.
