N.A. Juniors Game Night: 12/10
Helpers for Courtnall, Tyrell, and Wright (2) ... Ward back to even for struggling Lewiston, but how long will he be with the team?
Victoria Grizzlies 2 @ Alberni Valley Bulldogs 0 (Tuesday)
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 0-1-1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 34 GP, 9-26-35, 60 PIM
Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 1 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 4
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, +2, 0 PIM, 5 SOG
Season totals: 31 GP, 4-12-16, E, 41 PIM
Ward found his way back to an even rating for the season. Lewiston is 12-21-0-0 and sits 8 points in last in the Telus Central Division. With Lewiston struggling and Ward having a career year as a 19 year old, he's a prime candidate to move to a contender before the QMJHL trade deadline. The team trading for him can fit him in with no overage concerns like other potential trade candidates and Lewiston is unlikely to get Ward back next year anyway as a 20 year old.
Swift Current Broncos 7 @ Prince George Cougars 6
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 30 GP, 19-21-40, -22, 27 PIM
Tyrell, fresh off signing an NHL contract, will leave for Ottawa today (Thursday) for Canadaâ€™s WJC selection camp.
Seattle Thunderbirds 3 @ Vancouver Giants 7
C James Wright, VAN: 0-2-2, +1, 0 PIM
Season totals: 30 GP, 12-16-28, +18, 14 PIM
Evander Kane had four goals for Vancouver. Wright broke a two-game scoreless streak and notched his first multi-point game since November 11, when he had two assists vs. Kelowna.
