Raise your hand if back in August you predicted Oleg Sosunov would break 20 points on a loaded Moose Jaw squad, be an everyday player, and be among the league leaders in plus/minus rating? And then what if I told you there’s a dang good chance he scores 30 points? Sosunov assisted on Howden’s game opening goal less than two minutes in, and then assisted on Brayden Burke’s (undrafted) game-winning goal in the 3rd. Howden and Burke also tallied helpers on Justin Almeida’s (2018 draft eligible) goal less than a minute into the 2nd period. Howden earned Third Star honors for the Warriors in the win, and Josh Paterson (undrafted) scored twice for the Blades in a losing effort.
