ProHawks: Schilling earns first NHL point
It took Cameron Schilling until after his 30th birthday, but the Winnipeg defenseman finally earned his first NHL point.
First called up in 2012-13 with Washington, Schilling was playing in his 10th NHL game and his fourth with the Jets.
Schilling picked up the secondary assist on a Nikolaj Ehlers goal early in the second period that put Winnipeg ahead for good, 3-2 on Tuesday.
Schilling became the 28th player in Miami history to record a point in the NHL.
BoB takes a look at other Miamians making news in pro hockey:
NHL: Chris Wideman was traded from Ottawa to Edmonton on Nov. 22.
In two games since being moved, Wideman has one assist for his sixth point of the season. This was his fourth season with the Senators.
— Thanks to a seven-game stretch
from Nov. 18-29 that saw Reilly Smith rack up nine assists, the Vegas forward now leads the team in helpers with 13.
Smith has already eclipsed the career 100-goal, 150-assist and 250-point marks this season and is just 39 games of 500.
— Los Angeles defenseman Alec Martinez has scored in back-to-back games, including a game winner vs. Carolina on Dec. 2.
Martinez has 10 points on the season, and his marker vs. Arizona on Dec. 4 was the 60th of his NHL career.
— Calgary’s Austin Czarnik accomplished somewhat of a rare feat by scoring the ninth and final goal in the Flames’ 9-6 win at Columbus on Tuesday.
— New Jersey’s Blake Coleman is tied for fourth in the NHL with two shorthanded goals.
Coleman’s second SHG came on Nov. 26 at Florida.
Coleman has eight goals overall, tied for second on the Devils behind Kyle Palmeiri.
AHL: Carter Camper picked up his 350th AHL point on Dec. 1 when the Grand Rapids forward registered a goal and an assist vs. San Antonio.
In 465 games in the league, Camper has scored 92 times and earned 258 helpers since 2010-11.
— Riley Barber recorded a season-high three points in a win over Binghamton on Dec. 2.
Barber is 8-10-18 through 20 games as he is on pace for the highest points-per-game rate of his career.
— Anthony Louis leads Rockford with eight goals, including tallies in consecutive games vs. San Antonio and Chicago on Nov. 20 and 23.
ECHL: This is Alex Wideman’s fourth pro season, and he is on his best ECHL scoring pace.
The Cincinnati forward has 18 points in 18 games – 1.00 per – and his previous best being 0.91 with Indiana last season.
Wideman has already picked up his 100th career assist and 150th point this season.
Wideman teammate and fellow forward Justin Vaive posted a career-best 32 goals in 2017-18, and he has scored nine times in 22 games to start this campaign.
SPHL: Andrew Schmit has notched five assists in nine games since being reassigned to Pensacola.
Europe: Matthew Caito has scored 11 goals for Graz of EBEL this season, with three coming in a two-game span Nov. 4-13.
Caito has tallied 11 assists as well, leading the 99ers in defenseman goals, assists and points.
Andy Miele is tied for third in scoring on Nivhny Novgorod of the KHL with 20 points.
That includes a three-point game against Chelyabinsk in which he picked up back-to-back assists in the Torpedos’ comeback and recorded the clinched with one second remaining.
This is the first season a Miamian has played in the KHL since Randy Robitaille in 2013-14.
