WHL scores from Fadden, Tyrell, Tokarski, and Wright...
Spokane Chiefs 1 @ Brandon Wheat Kings 4
G Dustin Tokarski, SPO: Loss, 19 saves on 22 shots
Season totals: 20 GP, 12-6-0-2, 1.78 GAA, .944 sv%, 3 shutouts
Tokarski lost his second straight start with an uncharacteristic three GAA game. The Chiefs were down just 2-1 with three minutes left in the game before Braydon Schenn, fresh off being named Central Scoutingâ€™s third-ranked draft eligible WHLer, added an insurance goal. Ryan Craigâ€™s former junior team then added a late empty netter to finish the scoring. Tokarski still leads the WHL in GAA, save percentage (.924 next highest), and shutouts. Heâ€™s third in wins.
Another multi-pointer for Barberio ... five Firsts for Tokarski ... your Ugly Stat of the Day ... and who did Lightning co-owner Len Barrie watch his son with at the Vancouver-Kelowna game?
