Portland Winterhawks 5 @ Regina Pats 4 (OT)
RW Carter Ashton, REG: 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM
Season totals: 18 GP, 8-7-15, -8, 34 PIM

After a slow start, Ashton has 12 points in his last 10 games, including goals in his last two.

D Teigan Zahn, SAS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM
Season totals: 19 GP, 1-5-6, +7, 32 PIM

Saskatoon allowed 2 third period goals, enabling Seattle to tie the game. The Thunderbirds then scored once in the shootout for the win. With his assist Tuesday, Zahn extended his point streak to a career-long 4 games. While that may be ho-hum for some, considering Zahn only had 3 points (all assists) all of last season, it’s a major achievement. His career high for points is 19, set in 2007-2008 with the Blades in 69 games. He was drafted by the Blackhawks in the fifth round after that season.
