CHL/BCHL Update

BCHL
Powell River Kings 3 @ Victoria Grizzlies 3 (9.15.07)
W Justin Courtnall, VIC: 1-0-1, 2 PIM

Game Notes: Justin Courtnall, son of former NHL player Geoff Courtnall and nephew of former NHLer Russ Courtnall, scored his first goal of the year mid-way through the third period to lift the Victoria Grizzlies to a 3-3 tie with Powell River ... The BCHL uses ties and overtime losses in the standings ... Courtnall was whistled for interference late in the third period, but the Grizzlies were able to kill off the penalty ... Courtnall scored just five goals in 53 games last season with Burnaby (BCHL). He has one goal in two games so far this season for the 0-1-1-0 Grizzlies.

QMJHL
Acadie-Bathurst Titan 5 @ Lewiston MAINEiacs 3 (9.16.07)
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

Game Notes: The MAINEiacs dropped their first game of the year, blowing a 3-1 second period lead to the Titan. A-B scored three times in just under two minutes in the second period to make that two goal deficit into a one goal lead. The Titan added an empty netter with nine seconds left ... Ward has not registered a point in two games this year and is looking for his first QMJHL goal.
