N.A. Juniors Game Night: 2/5

BCHL
Powell River Kings 4 @ Victoria Grizzlies 5 (OT)
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 1-0-1, 2 PIM (interference)

Courtnall scored his 17th goal of the year in the second period to give Victoria a temporary 2-1 lead.

Lethbridge Hurricanes 7 @ Edmonton Oil Kings 0
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 0-2-2, +2, 2 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct)

One of Fadden’s assists came when his shot hit the post and a teammate put in the rebound. Lethbridge has been on fire offensively lately, but have been doing so without giant contributions by their big line of Fadden-Boychuk-Sceviour.

I might have missed it, but

I might have missed it, but has Courtnall committed to an NCAA program yet? Or do you think he'll jump into the CHL?

Courtnall

I periodically check the recruiting sites and haven't seen a commitment. I've done some searches here and there and haven't seen his name mentioned too much.

He was drafted by Kelowna a few years ago, but he wanted to go the college route. Kelowna technically still owns his rights, I believe.

He'll be 19 in May.

Courtnall

Not likely Courtnall will head to Kelowna. His dad believes the extra development time in the NCAA would be best for Justin. Kelowna is deep in 89's and Justin would have to fight hard to earn top 3 ice time next year.
He will secure a place with a Div 1 school. Just a matter of finding the best fit. Patience will be the key with Justin.

Good for him

Good to hear. Thanks for the information.
