newjerseydevils.com – Adam Henrique’s impressive performance at the 2009 Memorial Cup continued Tuesday with two assists in the Windsor Spitfires' 2-1 win over the Kelowna Rockets.

The Devils’ prospect has recorded two goals and two assists for the Spitfires (OHL), who handed the Rockets (WHL) their first loss of the nine-day tournament. Windsor, this year's OHL champion, avoided elimination with its first win to improve to 1-2, while Kelowna slipped to 2-1.

Through three games, Henrique is tied for second (five others) in Memorial Cup scoring, four points behind Kelowna’s Jamie Benn, who leads all skaters with three goals and five assists. Henrique, a 19-year-old center, was selected with New Jersey’s fourth pick, 82nd overall, in the 2008 Entry Draft.

In Thursday’s tie-breaker, the Spitfires will face the loser of Wednesday’s meeting between the host Rimouski Oceanic (QMJHL) and the QMJHL champion Drummondville Voltigeurs (7 p.m. ET, NHL Network). The Rockets have already secured a berth in Sunday’s final (4:30 p.m. ET, NHL Network).

Patrice Cormier, the Devils’ third choice in 2008, has a goal in two games for the Oceanic. Defenseman Harry Young, New Jersey's eighth pick in 2008, has an assist for the Spitfires.

The Memorial Cup, regarded as one of the toughest trophies to win, features the three Canadian major junior championship squads – and a fourth from the host city – in a round-robin tourney.

Past winners have included Devils head coach Brent Sutter, who coached the Red Deer Rebels (WHL) to the 2001 title, and forward David Clarkson (Kitchener, 2003). Former Devils Scott Stevens (Kitchener, 1982) and Scott Niedermayer (Kamloops, 1992) also won.
