Jake Guentzel picked up three more assists in Da Beauty League on Monday night, bringing his league-leading season total to seven goals and nine assists in five games.

Guentzel's Team Jack Links fell to Team RBC, 9-6. Two of Guentzel's assists came on goals by the Islanders' Brock Nelson, who scored a hat trick for Jack Links:

It was the first game of the season in which Guentzel was held without a goal. Penguins defense prospect Clayton Phillips was scoreless for Jack Links in the loss.

Former Penguin and current Coyote Alex Goligoski scored this goal for RBC:

The loss snapped a three-game win streak for Jack Links, and their season record fell to 3-2.

Teddy Blueger, who usually plays for RBC, was absent on Monday night, as RBC picked up its second win of the season.

Nick Bjugstad and Team Walser took their second loss in a row, falling 9-2 to Team TRIA. Bjugstad earned one assist, the secondary assist on Walser's first period goal. He now has five goals and five assists in five games.

Walser now has a record of 3-2 this season.

One of the highlights of the night was reigning league MVP Brock Boeser's move for an assist in Team BIC's loss to Team Tradition:

There are three games remaining in the regular season for each team, with the final regular season game on Aug. 14. The semifinal round of the playoffs is on Aug. 19, and the championship game is on Aug. 21.
