Boucher one away from Stamkos\' mark
Reid Boucher is one goal away from joining elite company.

The Devils' left wing prospect scored four times for Sarnia (OHL) on Friday to reach 57 goals for the season – one shy of Steven Stamkos' team record. The outburst fueled the Sting's 13-3 win over Erie, helping to set a club mark for most goals in a game.

Boucher struck 15 seconds into the contest and added two assists to round out a season-high six-point outing.

“He’s really special," head coach Jacques Beaulieu told SarniaSting.com. "In my 15 years coaching in the CHL I’ve never been part of a guy who scored 57 goals. And he’s not finished. It’s a credit to him.”

Besides having 15 more goals than anyone else in the OHL, Boucher also leads the league in power-play tallies (20) and game winners (9). He's fifth in OHL scoring with 85 points.

Boucher's quest continues Friday, when the Sting visits the London Knights.

G Maxime Clermont recorded back-to-back wins versus fellow Devils prospect G Scott Wedgewood last week. Clermont made 30 saves in Elmira's (ECHL) 4-1 win over Trenton on Monday, then posted 34 stops Friday for a 5-4 shootout victory.

Clermont has four wins, a shootout loss and a no decision in six head-to-head meetings this season with Wedgewood, who's 2-2-1-1 against Clermont.

Wedgewood rebounded Saturday with his first pro shutout. He needed 29 saves to capture a 6-0 win over Reading.

D Damon Severson collected assists in back-to-back games for Kelowna (WHL) on Friday and Saturday, bringing his season totals to eight goals and 38 assists. He's tied for sixth among WHL defensemen with 46 points.

D Jon Merrill registered a season-high three assists for Michigan (CCHA) on Saturday, helping the Wolverines complete a weekend sweep of Ohio State with a 6-3 victory.

C Graham Black scored twice and added an assist for Swift Currrent (WHL) on Sunday, matching a season high with a three-point game. Black ranks third on the Broncos with 45 points (22g-23a).

Black's teammate and fellow Devils prospect D Reece Scarlett added two assists in Sunday's 6-1 win over Brandon. Scarlett, Swift Current's top scoring blue liner, is fourth on the squad with 41 points (7g-34a).

LW Ben Johnson had two goals for Windsor (OHL) on Thursday, giving him 4g-4a in 11 games this month. He's up to 18 goals and 14 assists in 60 games.
