3 Players of Note:
1) TJ Foster C Edmonton - TJ Foster had a big game again tonight, and without his big game, the Oil Kings don't have a chance to win this game. Everytime I think the well is about to dry up on him, he comes up with a game like this, 2 goals 1 assist, a goal on the penalty shot, and just an all around solid game. I'm not sure how great of a scorer he will be at the pro level, but the kid scores pro level style goals, most coming from his wicked shot. A team looking for a straight up shooter that can play some two-way hockey, Foster is your guy.
2) Mark McNeill C Prince Albert - He was impressive again tonight, coming off a strong game last night against Team Russia. McNeill is a lot like TJ Foster, except he also has the ability to drive the net. He is a very strong skater, straight up shooter, two-way center. He's a player that is all over the ice, but knows where to be at any given time. A very versatile player.
3) Kellen Tochkin RW Prince Albert - I had a chance to see Kellen earlier in the year when he was a member of the Medicine Hat Tigers. He really didn't have muh of a role in MH, just essentially a player that took a shift and made sure he didn't get scored on. In PA, a team that is starved for goals, Kellen Tochkin fits into a more offensive role here. Not sure if he has much of a pro career ahead of him, but he had a nice game tonight generating offense through some shifty board work and cycling. All that being said it was a game where Pysyk and Reinhart were both noticably absent.
