3 Players of Note:
1) Jamie Crooks LW Victoria - Impressive player on the boards and has a good sense around the net, despite his smaller stature. Leads the team in goals, getting his 31st of the year tonight. Not flashy, a pretty meat and potatoes type player. Got into a spirited fight early, bloodied his nose, came back into the game to register a goal and an assist. A gutsy player.
2) Brandon Magee C Victoria - Waterbug type that is chippy in some offense for the Victoria. I had bigger hopes for this player. He seems to have lost some bite in his physical game that was more apparent last year. He has taken on a more offensive role this year but seems to be playing a more heady game instead of doing the grunt work in the corners. Probably best for him considering his tiny stature. Needs something in his game to set him apart from the others.
3) Troy Bourke LW Prince George - Find himself in the same state that Ryan Murray from Everett is in, on a smaller scale. A talented player with a limited supporting cast around him. Isn't playing the game with a lot desire lately even though Prince George is in a playoff race. Bourke is a shifty playmaker that has decent vision. Without prime finishers on his team, its tough showcase those playmaking talents. I still feel he will be drafted by someone this year, but his stock is plummeting.
