No goals. No assists.

Not even one measly penalty minute.

The Calgary Hitmen trio of forward Brent Sonne and defencemen Alex Plante and Karl Alzner were kept off the scoresheet at last night's Top Prospects Game in Quebec City.

But for Alzner, everything went according to plan.

"It's nice to get points but I don't really mind and I know Plante doesn't mind and Sonne's one of those (penalty kill) guys, so it doesn't really matter to him," said Alzner.

"I wanted to just go under the radar and not do anything too flashy and not do anything too bad.

"I played a decent game and I don't think any of the three of us are going to worry about not making the scoresheet."

Alzner suited up with Sonne on Team White, while Plante played for Team Red, which won 5-3.

Ruslan Bashkirov of the hometown Remparts scored two goals to lead Team Red over Quebec teammate Angelo Esposito's Team White.

Bashkirov's goals helped the side coached by Pat Burns and Michel Bergeron build a 4-1 lead and then hang on to win over a team led by Scotty Bowman and Jacques Demers.

Logan MacMillan and Jakub Voracek of the Halifax Mooseheads also scored as the Reds got four goals on 14 shots in the first half of the game on Peterborough Petes goaltender Trevor Cann.

Stefan Legein of the Missisauga Ice Dogs scored into an empty net with 1:01 left to play for the Reds.

Oscar Moller of the Chilliwack Bruins scored against Jeremy Smith of the Plymouth Whalers, while Keven Veilleux of the Victoriaville Tigres and Maxim Gratchev of the Rimouski Oceanic scored on Linden Rowatt of the Regina Pats for Team White.

Priddis' Tyson Sexsmith of the Vancouver Giants stopped all 15 shots he faced.
