N.A. Juniors Game Night: 10/22
Tyrell scores again ... Jung dresses for Edmonton ... Another point for Barberio.
Victoria Grizzlies 2 @ Salmon Arm Silverbacks 5
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 0-1-1, 2 PIM (hooking)
Season totals: 16 GP, 6-10-16, 28 PIM
Courtnall and Victoria got Evan Pighin back after his suspension was dropped. Hockey Canada is now taking measures to ensure thereâ€™s a set protocol for players leaving the WHL for provincial junior leagues. Pighin had a goal for Victoria.
Chicoutimi Sagueneens 2 @ Moncton Wildcats 4
D Mark Barberio, MON: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 12 GP, 4-8-12, +7, 8 PIM
Moncton took the second of the home-and-home games with Chicoutimi for the mini-series sweep. Barberio scored the game winner in the previous matchup in overtime. Moncton is ranked 3rd in the latest CHL Top-10.
Prince George Cougars 3 @ Medicine Hat Tigers 7
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 1-0-1, -1, 2 PIM (high sticking), *Third Star*
Season totals: 12 GP, 10-4-14, -10, 14 PIM
Tyrell scored his tenth of the season, which is tied for second in the league. He has six goals in his last four games. Unfortunately, Tyrellâ€™s minus-10 rating is seventh from the bottom of the nearly 561 WHL players. Tyler Ennis (first round, Buffalo) had four points for Medicine Hat.
Jung was able to make the five hour drive from Lethbridge to Edmonton in time to serve as the Oil Kingsâ€™ backup. He is wearing number 1 for Edmonton. Whether or not thatâ€™s his depth chart ranking has yet to be seen. Meanwhile, Wright was without a point for Vancouver for the third time in the last five games. Vancouver, who is ranked seventh in the latest CHL Top-10 rankings, outshot Edmonton 33-10.
