No. 1 star: David Honzik, Cape Breton Screaming Eagles (QMJHL)
The 19-year-old Honzik has a hard road back from a shoulder injury, what with trying to regain his old form while playing for a struggling Screaming Eagles team. The Vancouver Canucks third-rounder looked great on Sunday, though, earning his first shutout of the season by making 31 saves in a 3-0 road win over the Chicoutimi Saguenéens. The Czech Republic native looked a lot like the goalie who handed eventual Memorial Cup champion Saint John its only loss of the QMJHL playoffs two seasons ago.
Cape Breton shutting down Chicoutimi today. David Honzik looked like the goalie he was 18 months ago with Victo in the seris vs Saint-John.

The victory was also Marc-André Dupont's first since taking over as Cape Breton's coach and snapped the Eagles' nine-game losing streak. Vancouver invested a fair bit in Honzik when it drafted him in the third round, so his continued progress is something to follow the rest of the season.Read More »from Cape Breton’s David Honzik hits Chicoutimi checkpoint on comeback trail: Sunday’s 3 Stars
