    Now that he's no longer a rookie and has someone to play off him, Yakov Trenin is delivering as promised for the Gatineau Olympiques.

    The 'Piques resurgence has come with their first-year import and Los Angeles Kings second-rounder Valentin Zykov, who missed a portion of the year due to hernia surgery, finding their form. It's made a team that was outside the Quebec League picture thanks to being a revolving door of players from four-plus months an intriguing wild-card factor.

    Here is the weekly look at who is flowing and who is fraying entering the third-last week of regular-season play.

    No. 1 star: Samuel Blais, Victoriaville Tigres (QMJHL)

    Blais had four points in the third period, among his five on the night, to help the Tigres outlast the Sherbrooke Phoenix 7-4.

    The 18-year-old St. Louis Blues pick had an assist on an early second-period goal by linemate Angelo Miceli, as the teams were square 2-2 after 40 minutes. In the final frame, it got frantic, is Blais (1G-4A, +2) assisted on power-play goals 90 seconds apart with a Phoenix tally sandwiched in between. The teams were tied again with 6:19 left when Blais created a chance that Miceli (3G-1A, +2) capped off to put Victoriaville ahead to stay.

    Blais, a sixth-round pick of the Blues, also scored a dagger goal with 3:32 left in the game.

    No. 2 star: Jansen Harkins, Prince George Cougars (WHL)
