Brandon Bochenski, Karri Ramo, and Paul Szczechura were named the game's three stars.

The Smolenak/Szczechura/Segal line looks like a winner, and the way Szczechura continues to rack up points he might make a run for AHL MVP if he can keep healthy.

Jung Joins Fadden in Lethbridge

The Kelowna Rockets have announced they have officially traded goaltender Torrie Jung to the Lethbridge Hurricanes for a sixth round Bantam draft pick in 2010.

Jung joins fellow Lightning prospect Mitch Fadden in Lethbridge. He had been staying at his Nanaimo, B.C. home waiting for a trade. Jung was expected to be Kelowna's No.1 goaltender this year, but a pre-season trade for a more experienced No.1 changed things for the former seventh round pick.
