J.C. Lipon chipped his brother's teeth on a hit at training camp for the WHL's Kamloops Blazers on Sunday.

"I passed the puck down deep and was going through the middle and I looked up," Mitch said. "J.C.'s shoulder hit my face and my teeth kind of just chipped off and I was picking them up off the ground." The younger Lipon hit one J.C.'s teammates during a scrimmage and it spurred on the reaction, but he understands that these things can happen in hockey so there isn't any bad blood between them. J.C. Lipon was selected in the third round, 91st overall, of the 2013 draft.

Lipon enjoyed a superb season offensively in the WHL this past season with Kamloops, where he amassed 36 goals and 89 points in 61 games. He was eligible for the 2012 draft, but no team selected him. His stock got a jolt in 2012-13 and he was able to get better recognized by making Team Canada's world junior roster.

Both Canadians will be back in the lineup for the New Year's Eve game against Russia that concludes Pool B play.

JC Lipon's stock is rising after going undrafted during the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Lipon has 22 goals and 57 points in 34 WHL games this season. He also made Team Canada's roster for the upcoming World Junior Championship, in part thanks to his infectious energy and his penalty killing skills. "I guess there are late bloomers," Lipon said. "Hockey is a tough game. You learn a lot throughout each year. If you're not getting better, what's the point of playing?" Lipon will once again be eligible to be drafted in 2013 and he has a much better chance of being selected this time around.

JC Lipon scored his 22nd goal of the season to lead the Kamloops Blazerst o a 3-2 victory over Tri-City Friday night.

What can we say about Lipon that we already haven't said. Maybe this will finally be the year an NHL team will draft the WHL star. Lipon now leads the WHL in goal scoring and is tied with Colin Smith for the overall points lead with 54.

JC Lipon extended his point streak to five games on Wednesday.

Lipon has 21 goals and 51 points in a mere 26 WHL contests this season. His Kamloops Blazers teammate, Colin Smith, ranks second in the league's scoring race with 49 points. After that, there's an 11-point gap between Lipon and the third place Nicolas Petan.

JC Lipon scored 2 goals and added 3 assists Friday night in Kamloops' 6-4 win over Portland in WHL action.

Lipon leads the WHL with 48 points in just 24 games. He's been passed over twice in the NHL draft, but he's set his sights on 2013 and is forcing scouts to take a serious look. Tanner Pearson, who was passed over in the NHL draft multiple times before posting an outstanding season in the OHL last year, ended up being a first round selection in the 2012 draft. If Lipon keeps it up, there's reason to believe he could do the same.
