Daily Dose of the Dub: Alexeyev avoids major injury; JAD joins Canada; former Winterhawk gets call from the bigs

Alexeyev Gets Lucky

Red Deer Rebels defenseman and Washington Capital’s prospect Alexander Alexeyev has avoided serious injury following Tuesday’s awkward hit from the Blazers’ Zane Franklin, who avoided discipline from the league. After leaving the game he underwent an X-Ray and CAT scan which both turned out negative, he is now listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury and is possible to return Friday. The Russian first round pick has seven goals and 24 assists for 31 points in 29 games this season.

Anderson-Dolan with Team Canada

Spokane’s Jaret Anderson-Dolan skated for the first time at Canadian selection camp on Tuesday in Victoria, not skating with the team. Anderson-Dolan underwent surgery for a broken bone in his wrist in November and has been out ever since. It will be interesting to see if he gets into game action for Team Canada as he would definitely be one of the team’s top players in the tournament. He has two goals in two games with Spokane this year.

Jones to Oil

Former Portland Winterhawks defenseman Caleb Jones has been recalled by the Edmonton Oilers from their AHL affiliate in Bakersfield. This is the 2015 fourth rounder’s first call to the big leagues earned with 12 points in 21 AHL games this season which leads defenseman on his team. The younger brother of Blue Jackets’ Seth Jones, accumulated 117 points in 135 games in his WHL career.

The Vancouver Giants reassigned ‘02 D Joel Sexsmith to the Delta Hockey Academy of the CSSHL. He has been on the Giants roster all season so far but has yet to appear in a game due to injury.

Three Stars of the Night

1st Star: Joachim Blichfield led Portland to a 7-2 victory over Victoria with two goals and two assists.

2nd Star: Spokane’s Bailey Brkin stopped 43 of 46 shots in a 4-3 shootout win over the first place Everett Silvertips.

3rd Star: Canadiens prospect Cole Fonstad has the overtime winner to edge the league best Raiders over the Oil Kings.

Honourable Mentions

Swift Current’s Andrew Fyten had two goals in the Broncos’ 4-3 win over Regina….Lethbridge’s Dylan Cozens helped beat Kelowna 5-1 with two assists….Ryan Jevne scored a pair for Medicine Hat in the 4-2 win over Kamloops with this nice goal:
