3 Players of Note:
1) Dylan McIlrath D Moose Jaw. What a nasty piece of work this player is. Love the way he plays. He's an old school gladiator that you will love if he's on your team but hate if he isn't. Yeah, I know we are moving towards a more kinder, gentler brand of hockey these days, but McIlrath can play on my team. Plays the game with a lot of force and his big frame covers lot of the ice. If I was to build a defensive defenseman, it would look and play like Dylan McIlrath.
2) Tristan Sieban LW Edmonton. Sieban was on the receiving end of a nasty elbow from the aforementioned Dylan McIlrath, that put him down, but much to his credit came coming back for more. Playing even harder after that incident. He kept battling and scrapping to keep the Oil Kings in the arms war with a much larger Moose Jaw team. His energy was infectous and likely kept the Oil Kings in the game. Without his energy tonight, the Oil Kings likely get pushed right out of the rink.
3) Luke Siemens G Moose Jaw. I was impressed with Siemens moxie tonight. The Oil Kings crashed net all game but seemed pretty unflappable tonight. Looks a little odd when using his catching hand to glove pucks but all in all, really stood his ground in between the pipes tonight. Eventually the Oil Kings did break through but he held the fort strong for most of the game.
