Sunday . . .

F Mark Stone had three goals to lead Team White to a 5-4 victory over Team Black. . . . Stone and linemates Scott Glennie and Shayne Wiebe combined for 10 points. . . .

The OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds went 1-2 at the five-team tournament in Everett on the weekend. They blew leads in losing their first two games -- they led 2-0 on Friday before losing 3-2 to the host Silvertips, and on Saturday they held a 5-1 lead only to lose 6-5 in OT to the Portland Winterhawks. . . . On Sunday, the Greyhounds beat the Tri-City Americans, 6-2. The game featured 172 penalty minutes, with 132 of those coming in the third period. . . . The Soo’s brain trust was impressed with the calibre of play. “The level of play wasn't like an OHL exhibition game. These were like regular season games," head coach Denny Lambert, the former NHLer, told Peter Ruicci of the Sault Star. . . . GM Dave Torrie told Ruicci: "These games were a lot more intense than typical exhibition games. They all were played at a very high tempo." . . . Ruicci’s story is right here.

The Everett Silvertips are down to 28 players, including four goaltenders and eight defencemen, after reassigning a pair of 16-year-olds on Sunday. F Kohl Bauml, a third-round pick in the 2009 bantam draft, and D Darian Henry, a seventh-round pick, were moved before the Silvertips concluded their weekend tournament. . . . Everett also sent home F Ryan Chynoweth, their first pick in the 2010 draft. Chynoweth, who signed a WHL contract last week, will go to camp with the midget AAA team in Lethbridge.

The Seattle Thunderbirds have released F Brennan Tutt, 18, who was pointless in 17 games last season. He was hampered by injuries for a lot of last season. Tutt is the son of former WHLer Brian Tutt (Calgary, 1979-82).

Police divers continued to search Sunday for Gervais Munger, the 52-year-old co-owner of the QMJHL’s Chicoutimi Sagueneens, who was thrown from a Zodiac and into the waters of Lac St-Jean, about 250 kilometres northwest of Quebec City early Saturday afternoon. . . . Munger and three friends, none of whom was wearing a life jacket, ended up in the water. The other three were able to make it to shore.
