Boucher notches 60th; Clermont starts in Albany
LW Reid Boucher's hat trick on Saturday brought his goal total to 60 for the season, surpassing Steven Stamkos (58) for the most in Sarnia (OHL) team history. Boucher, the 99th overall pick in 2011, also became the first OHLer to reach the 60-goal plateau since 2007-08.

He leads the OHL in power-play goals (21) and game winners (10), and is fifth overall with 91 points.

With five games remaining in the Sting's regular season, Boucher still has time to add to his goals mark. Sarnia hosts London on Friday.

G Maxime Clermont made his season debut with Albany (AHL) on Saturday, posting 29 saves in a 2-1 shootout loss to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Clermont, who was reassigned from Elmira (ECHL) on Thursday, was tapped after New Jersey recalled Keith Kinkaid from Albany to backup Johan Hedberg.

The night before he arrived in Albany, Clermont (15-10-3-2) made 41 saves for Elmira in a 5-1 win over Wheeling. He has a 1-1-1 record in three career starts with the Devils' AHL affiliate.

D Damon Severson recorded an assist for Kelowna (WHL) on Saturday, improving his season totals to eight goals and 39 helpers in 65 games. His 47 points are tied for sixth among WHL blue liners.

Windsor (OHL) LW Ben Johnson has points in three straight games after collecting an assist against Niagara on Sunday. Johnson put up five goals and four assists in 12 February games, and now has 19 goals and 17 assists on the season.

LW Ben Thomson has 12 goals and 15 assists for Kitchener (OHL) after potting eight points (3g-5a) in 11 games last month. He also surpassed the century mark in penalty minutes and currently ranks seventh in the league with 113 PIMs.

Swift Current (WHL) C Graham Black has three goals and an assist in his last four games. With 23 goals, 23 assists, Black has surpassed the 20-goal plateau for the first time in his WHL career and ranks third on the Broncos with 46 points.

Black's teammate D Reece Scarlett posted 10 assists in 13 February games, and added another helper Friday in Calgary to improve his totals to seven goals and 36 assists. He's tied for 11th in points among WHL defensemen.

LW Blake Pietila had an assist in Michigan Tech's (WCHA) win over St. Cloud State on Saturday. His February included a four-point effort (1g-3a) against Northern Michigan in an 8-2 victory on Feb. 12. He now has 14 goals and eight assists in 30 games with two remaining versus Colorado College.

LW Blake Coleman potted a goal and an assist for Miami (CCHA) in Saturday's 4-2 win over Ohio State. Coleman finished the regular season with eight goals, including four game winners, and eight assists in 36 games with the CCHA champion RedHawks.

D Jon Merrill and Michigan (CCHA) closed out the regular season over the weekend with back-to-back wins against Ferris State. Merrill finished his injury-shortened campaign with one goal and six assists in 15 games for the Wolverines, who won six of eight to end the campaign.

G Scott Wedgewood made 33 saves for Trenton (ECHL) on Friday, then stopped all eight shots he faced in the shootout to secure a 3-2 victory over Wheeling. It was the 17th win of the season for Wedgewood, who's 17-21-3-2 on the year with a 3.24 goals-against average and one shutout.

C Artur Gavrus lit the lamp for the first time this season, scoring twice and adding an assist for Owen Sound (OHL) in their 6-1 victory over Mississauga on Saturday. He has two goals and four assists over his last eight games.
