Several Islanders prospects were in action last weekend with their junior teams or in Europe. While American college teams won’t drop the puck on the regular season until October, the Canadian Hockey League began play on Sept. 20. Here is a look at the highlights of the first weekend of the season.

Pedan wins one for the Storm:
Defenseman Andrey Pedan scored a power play goal 44 seconds into overtime on Sept. 21, giving the Guelph Storm (OHL) a season-opening win against the Saginaw Spirit. The Kaunas, LTU native is tied for the OHL lead with 13 penalty minutes through two games for the 1-1-0 Storm.

Strome and Graham power IceDogs:
Center Ryan Strome assisted on a first period power-play goal, and defenseman Jesse Graham assisted on the game-tying goal as the Niagara IceDogs came from behind to defeat the Erie Otters 4-2 on Sept. 20. The next night, Strome picked up an assist on Niagara’s lone goal in regulation, as the IceDogs won 2-1 in a shootout to improve to 2-0-0.

Reinhart’s successful season opener:
Defenseman Griffin Reinhart helped the defending WHL Champion Edmonton Oil Kings to a 5-3 victory against the Kootenay Ice on Sept. 20. In his first game as Edmonton’s captain, the North Vancouver, BC native registered two assists. On Sept. 23, the Oil Kings beat Red Deer 6-2, giving them a 2-0-0 record on the young season.
