Halifax forward Jakub Voracek and Cape Breton goaltender Ondrej Pavelec were named the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week for the period ending Jan. 28.

In two games this week, Voracek, ranked No. 15 in Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings for the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, collected one goal and seven assists while maintaining a healthy plus- 3 rating. Voracek had a hand in eight of the team’s 10 goals this week, netting three assists in a 5-4 win against Lewiston and a career-high five points in a 6-5 overtime victory in PEI. He now leads the QMJHL rookie class in scoring with 54 points in 40 games.

Rimouski’s Jordan Caron (2-6-8), Victoriaville’s Morten Madsen (3-4-7) and Val D’Or’s Jerome Samson (5-2-7) were also considered for Offensive Player of the Week honors.

Defensively, Pavelec registered two wins, including a shutout, while maintaining a remarkable 0.67 goals-against-average and .979 save percentage in three appearances. In each of his three starts, Pavelec was named the game’s first star. Following a 1-0 loss at the hands of Moncton last Tuesday, Pavelec helped the Screaming Eagles defeat the MAINEiacs in back-to-back games.

Val D’Or defenseman Kristopher Letang (1-5-6; plus-7), Rimouski defenseman Louis-Philippe Lachance (1-5-6; plus-4) and Moncton goaltender Jhase Sniderman (2-1-0; 1 SO; 2.34 GAA, .913 save percentage) were also nominated.

Martin Trudel, a defenseman with the Granby Bisons and Saint-Hyacinthe Laser in the early-90’s, lost a battle with cancer. He was 33. In four QMJHL seasons, Trudel collected six goals and 42 assists, while playing alongside notables such as Martin Brodeur, Martin Gendron and Patrick Poulin.

Ruslan Bashkirov of the Quebec Remparts was named the player of the game for Team Red at last week’s CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game at Le Colisee in Quebec City. Team Red won the game, 5-3, and Bashkirov had two goals.

Right wings Francois Bouchard and Thomas Beauregard recently became the first two 100-point scorers in the “Q” this year. Bouchard, who has a league-best 67 assists, tops the scoring charts with 102 points. Beauregard, running away with the goals title with 60 in 49 games, now has exactly 100 points.

Chicoutimi center David Desharnais has scored points in 20 straight games, notching 37 points during that run.

Lewiston’s Jonathan Bernier holds the lead in the goals-against average category for goalies, posting a 2.59 GAA in 35 games, .16 better the mark posted by PEI’s Antoine Lafleur in four fewer outings.
