Courtnall set up the game's opening goal by drawing the goalie to one side and then feeding his linemate for an easy tap-in goal.
Victoria Grizzlies General Manager Jackson Penney has informed Bolt Prospects that Lightning 2007 seventh round pick Justin Courtnall will return to the BCHL Grizzlies for another year.
Courtnall had been looking into attending an NCAA school in the fall, but those plans are on hold until the 2009-2010 season.
After starting slow last year with Victoria, Courtnall came on to finish with 19 goals and 32 assists for 51 points in 60 games - good enough for second on the club by just a point.
The winger played the previous season with Burnaby of the BCHL.
Courtnall's father, former NHLer Geoff Courtnall, is the head coach of Victoria. Lightning co-owner Len Barrie serves as the Grizzlies' president. (Times-Colonist photo)
