Emmerton Named OHL Player of the Week

Toronto - The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Kingston Frontenac forward Cory Emmerton is the OHL Player of the Week for the first week of the regular season, ending September 24, 2006. He scored four goals and added four assists for eight points to lead Kingston to two wins, last week.

Emmerton opened his 2006-07 season by scoring two goals and adding three assists to pace the Frontenacs to a 9-5 victory over the visiting Ottawa 67's. Two days later he led Kingston to a 6-3 road win over the Oshawa Generals, scoring two goals and three points. Emmerton was named the first star of the game in both contests.

A second round pick of the Detroit Red Wings, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Emmerton was strong at both ends of the ice. Last season, Emmerton led the OHL with a final plus/minus rating of +37. He has begun this season right where he left off last year by posting a +3 rating in the opening week of the season.

Philadelphia sends Downie back to Petes

Peterborough Petes got a shot in the arm with the return of Steve Downie yesterday.

The Philadelphia Flyers returned their 2005 first-round draft pick to the Petes yesterday. He arrived in time to practice with the club for the first time this season.

Downie, acquired in a blockbuster trade with Windsor Spitfires last year, played three NHL exhibition games for the Flyers. He said he wasn't disappointed to be returned to the Petes; he expected it.

"I was just going there for the experience and to get one step closer to getting my foot in the door," Downie said. "I'm happy to be back. It was exciting to go back in the dressing room and see all the guys again. I'm looking forward to this season."

Beaulieu comes back a better player

Josh Beaulieu spent almost two weeks in the Philadelphia Flyers' pro camp, the longest stay for any London Knight at a pro camp.

Genie has his wish granted

Andrew Perugini got a taste of the Ontario Hockey League last season, but this year the 18-year-old King City native is getting the main course. With the departure of Dan LaCosta, Perugini is going to be the man in goal for the Barrie Colts this season.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity,” Perugini said. “It’s always good to get to play a lot of games. This year is going to be a big year for the team, and I just want to make sure I’m in there for a lot of the wins.”

Coming into this season, Perugini knew he had the opportunity to take the No. 1 job with the Colts. In order to prepare, he kept himself busy all summer long training and attending goalie clinics to get himself in the best shape and frame of mind heading into training camp.
