After a hard-fought tournament, the Jr. Islanders were eliminated Thursday night, falling 3-0 to the Antoine Girouard Gaulois at the Apridrome in Quebec City.

The Islanders fell behind early, but the normally-potent offense – including one of the tournament’s top-scorer Danny Weight – could not solve Gaulois goalie Jonathan Lemieux.

The Islanders finished the 2014 Quebec International PeeWee Tournament with wins over the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers as well as exhibition wins over the Anaheim Jr. Ducks, Slovakia K and B Team and the Citadelles Rouyn-Noranda.

In three playoff games, Weight scored six points (one goal, five assists) and led the tournament in scoring prior to Thursday. Matthew Crasa scored four goals in the three games, tying him for the tournament lead following Wednesday’s game.

Danny Weight’s five-point game led the Jr. Islanders past the Jr. Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 on Wednesday afternoon.

Weight had a hand in every Isles goal, scoring once while setting up four others, including a hat trick by linemate Matthew Crasa.

After a scoreless opening period, Crasa scored both Islanders goals in the second period, giving his team a 2-0 lead heading into the third. The Flyers answered early in the final frame, but Liam Devlin scored the eventual winner at 12:06, before Crasa completed the trick with an insurance marker 54 seconds later. Weight iced the game with the Islanders fifth goal.

The 5-2 margin puts the Islanders back in the win column and sets up a showdown with the Antoine Girouard Gaulois Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

Weight Leads Tournament Scoring

With six points in two games, Danny Weight leads the tournament in scoring. Weight, son of Islanders Assistant Coach Doug Weight, has one goal and five assists, including a five-point effort (1g/4a) against the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers on Wednesday.

Matthew Crasa, Weight’s linemate, is tied for first with four goals and third in tournament scoring with four points. Crasa is coming off a hat-trick performance on Wednesday.

The Junior Isles won two games during the opening weekend of play in Quebec.

The team got off to a late start Saturday, with their first tournament game at 8:30 p.m. against the Markham Waxers. There was a crowd of about 1,000 and there was no denying the presence of the New York Islanders fans. Unfortunately the club fell 3-1 in the opener.

On Sunday, the boys returned to the ice at 8 a.m and beat the Citadelles Rouyn-Noranda 5-4. Danny Weight scored the game-winning goal with only a few minutes remaining.

After the victory, the club grabbed a quick lunch and bundled up for an outdoor game at the Mystery, Alaska Park. Since this game was against a local team, the Quebec Remparts, there were media covering the event. The Isles won 3-1.
