In Colorado Avalanche prospect news Michael Sgarbossa is trying to carve out a name for himself:
Sgarbossa was named the OHL player of the week for the second time in three weeks after recording eight points in two games with three goals and five assists to go along with a plus-minus rating of plus-6 for the week ending March 4.
After being named the OHL's Player of the Month for February, Sgarbossa began the week by recording his first career five-point game at home Friday night in an 8-5 win over the Kitchener Rangers, scoring two goals, including a third-period penalty shot, plus three assists to be named first star of the game. Saturday night, he extended his point-streak to 18 games after picking up a goal and two assists as second star of a 4-1 win over the Peterborough Petes to clinch a berth in the Eastern Conference playoffs for the Wolves.
Sgarbossa, a 19-year-old from Campbellville, Ont., is playing in his fourth OHL season. Now a Colorado Avalanche prospect, Sgarbossa has a career-high 92 points in 59 games with 44 goals and 48 assists.
Sgarbossa could become only the second Wolves player to win a scoring title if he can keep up his pace.

Is Quebec really getting ready for a NHL team?
This probably doesn't mean anything, unless it means everything.
Quebec City's municipal council has approved $6.8 million to revamp the aging Colisée this summer - but will spend the money only if the NHL decides to relocate a franchise to the Quebec capital this coming fall.
Mayor Régis Labeaume, an irrepressible sort who was kindly invited to keep his trap shut by NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly at January's All-Star Game, is evidently sending a signal to the league and to the handful of struggling NHL franchises that his city is willing and able to host a team as soon as the 2012-13 season.
