D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, -1, 6 PIM, 2 SOG
Ward and Lewiston got revenge on the Mooseheads by winning the second of a back-to-back set.

Prince George Cougars 4 @ Chilliwack Bruins 6
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 2-1-3, +1, 0 PIM
Tyrell made his season debut with a strong offensive showing. The Cougars are said to be offensively-challenged this season and a lot of pressure is on Tyrellâ€™s shoulders to lead the team on the stat sheet.
Tyrell: 1 GP, 2-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Saskatoon Blades 1 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 3
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM
Fadden notched his second multi-point game in a row for the Hurricanes. He'd move that streak to three on Sunday.
Helenius got his first North American win over Crowley and the struggling Silvertips. Crowley is expected to flirt with 40-50 points this year, but like his team is off to a slow start. Helenius beat Calgary Flames first rounder Leland Irving, who is now 0-3 for Everett.
"We carried a lot of the play, but when Riku was called on, especially in the second period with some point-blank chances from the slot, he made some game-changing saves," Seattle coach Rob Sumner told the Seattle Times.
Helenius: 2 GP, 1-0-1-0 (W-L-OTL-SOL), 1.93 GAA, .922 sv%
Crowley: 2 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 2 PIM.
Kelowna Rockets 0 @ Vancouver Giants 5
G Torrie Jung, KEL: 16 saves on 18 shots in relief.
Both Jung and Kelownaâ€™s â€œotherâ€ goalie, Kristofer Westblom, are struggling so far in net for the Rockets. The duo was expected to be one of the best in the WHL. Their goals against and save percentage stats are nearly identical.
Jung: 2 GP, 1-0-0-0 (W-L-OTL-SOL), 4.26 GAA, .887 sv%
Victoria Grizzlies 6 @ Alberni Valley Bulldogs 2
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 1-0-1, 5 PIM

Courtnall: 8 GP, 2-4-6, 11 PIM
Sunday, September 30
Lethbridge Hurricanes 3 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 0
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM
