From the article:
Jordan Binnington backstopped the Owen Sound Attack with a record of 6-1-0-1 in October posting a league-low goals-against-average of 1.96 and league-high save percentage of .940. He made 30 or more saves in six of his eight starts and was twice recognized as first star of the game including October 10 where he made a season-high 42 saves in a 4-2 win over the Plymouth Whalers, and October 27 where he stopped 34 shots in a 3-1 win over the Sudbury Wolves.
FEATURES THIS WEEK
The Peoria Rivermen have just two wins this season, Dave Allison's charges are floundering in both ends of the ice, and the special teams have been, in a word, awful... and things aren't any brighter with the "AA" club in Evansville, either. Details and discussion at 3:00 PM Central.
Though the prospects in Peoria and Evansville have not been standouts, other members of the organization -- especially in the major junior ranks -- have been consistently outstanding this season. Every week, we take a look at a few. Details and discussion at 4:00 PM Central.
