Tampa Bay Lightning prospects report: Taylor Raddysh makes himself at home in the Soo
Raddysh and Katchouk are a perfect pair for the top OHL team.
The Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds are currently on a 28-game point streak, and it doesn’t look like things will slow down, with Tampa Bay Lightning prospects Taylor Raddysh and Boris Katchouk combining for 15 points in three games last week.
Out west Brett Howden had an impressive week as well for the Moose Jaw Warriors and Cal Foote put up big numbers in Kelowna. Let’s just get right to the highlights.

Peterborough Petes - 18-21-2-2

L 4-3 SO - No Points
Paquette goes off for multi-goal games then goes right back to not scoring. It’s just his new thing this year.

L 6-3 - 1G, 0A, -2
Jan. 14th: vs Owen Sound Attack
W 2-1 - No Points
Lipanov got lit up in his first game against his former Barrie Colts. The Wolves won’t be a good place to grow for him, perhaps an off-season trade will help in case he’s back for an overage season.

Neither Howden or Susonov scored in the Raiders game just to note, but I can’t get into the full stats. It was a great week regardless with two huge wins an a couple close games. Eight points for Howden was big big big as well.
