Around the Farm: Zac Jones, Lauri Pajuniemi shine in Pack win

Zac Jones Rangers taxi squad

Zac Jones and Lauri Pajuniemi each had a goal and two assists in the Hartford Wolf Pack’s 5-3 win over Springfield yesterday. Jones and Pajuniemi are streaking right now, and are two of the three big names that could see a call up this season if the Rangers get hit with the injury bug.

In the OHL, Brennan Othmann had three assists, continuing to carry Flint on his back as the only real offensive threat.

Overseas, Vitali Kravtsov had yet another goal. Good thing Julien Gauthier is alive and kicking.
