CHL Game Night: 11/9

With his two goals Friday, Dane Crowley has nearly matched last season's goal total despite a slow start to the season. Also, Dana Tyrell hits the other side of 100 points.

Results from Lewiston, Everett, Prince George, Kelowna, and Lethbridge on the flip.

QMJHL
Lewiston MAINEiacs 2 @ St. John’s Fog Devils 8
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, -1, 6 PIM, 0 SOG

Luke Adam (draft eligible) had 4 goals for St. John’s, a franchise record.

WHL
Everett Silvertips 2 @ Kootenay Ice 8
D Dane Crowley, EVT: 2-0-2, E, 0 PIM

Crowley scored both of Everett’s goals – his sixth and seventh goals of the season – but the ‘Tips fell in Kootenay 8-2. He had 8 goals last season between Swift Current and Everett. After a slow start statistically (reports were his defense was solid), Crowley now has 9 points in his last 9 games and 4 goals in his last 3 games. His first goal of the night was a high wrister that went top-corner. According to Gregg Drinnan of the Kamloops Daily News, at least 15 NHL scouts were in attendance to see ‘Tips center Kyle Beach (draft eligible). Beach assisted on Crowley’s game-opening goal, and also reportedly failed to score on a “lacrosse-style” goal, of which he’s done twice successfully so far this season.

Prince Albert Raiders 2 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 4
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM

The Hurricanes have won 7 of their last 8 games.

Kelowna Rockets 5 @ Prince George Cougars 1
G Torrie Jung, KEL: Did Not Play.
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM

Kristofer Westblom stopped 20 of 21 for Kelowna in his fifth straight start and his 100th WHL game. Tyrell’s assist came on the power play and was the 101st point of his WHL career. Rockets broadcaster Regan Bartel highlighted Tyrell's "tremendous" work ethic, but said as the game went on he was trying to do a lot of the work himself. "He was by far the best Cougar." Jung is expected to start against the Cougars tonight.
