What are the North American kids up to so far? Let’s find out.

The CHL season began last weekend, and it was pretty good news for most of the young Lightning players. Taylor Raddysh was the biggest offensive star of the weekend, putting up six points in the Otters first three games, when they went 1-1-1.

The WHL players were cut but not in time to play, so they’ll take to the ice this coming weekend. Let’s jump right into it and check out the scores.
