No Scoring

Kamloops Goals - Ranford, Smith
Edmonton Goals - None

Cole Cheveldave 34/38

Laurent Brossoit 16/20

1. J.C. Lipon RW - Lipon did everything but sell the popcorn tonight. 2 goals, an assist and 17 minutes in penalties. Lipon as really emerged as the go-to player on Kamloops early on this season. Scored a big goal to tie the game late, shorthanded no less on a broken play and some sloppy work from the Oil Kings. Does very well in navigating through traffic and finding open seems. Plays a bit of a greasy game as well. Between Lipon, Bozon and Needham, Kamloops is stocked in the agitator department. Greasy skill is the best way I can describe Lipon.
2. Cole Cheveldave G - Cheveldave was great again tonight. Gave up 4 but really kept his team in it as his team was getting blitzed by the Oil Kings. A lot of it due to penalty trouble. Cheveldave didn't have much of a chance on any of the goals, but kept battling right til the end, until his team walked away with 2 points. Like I said before, if Hockey Canada was looking for one goaltender from the WHL for the World Junior team, I would nominate Chevaldave as that goaltender.

1. Dylan Wruck LW - Wruck really brought it tonight, he's a bulldog in a chihuahua body. His gutsy style despite his small frame makes him a fan favorite among Oil Kings observers. Fearless on the ice, but its likely the reason why injuries have plagued him. Wruck chipped with a goal and two assists tonight. His goal was an aboslute dandy as he outwaited the Blazers' defenders and slipped a shot by Cheveldave. Wruck's straight ahead no nonsense style is infectious throughout his team.
2. Keegan Lowe D - Lowe played his usual pain in the backside type game. He has really worked on his puck movement and offensive game to where the other team has to respect it. Lowe is one of the relied upon leaders of the Oil Kings and isn't shy about applying himself in physical play. Lowe continues to be a work at progress but he has come a long way in his time with the Oil Kings and continues to improve on a game to game basis.
