North American Hockey Classic - Day 1 (98 age group)

Jr. Steelers 11 - Minnesota Icemen 2
One of the pre-tournament favourites, the Jr. Steelers out of Manitoba thumped the team from Minnesota in the first game of the tournament today.  Our top 5 ranked prospect, Nolan Patrick lit it up as what was somewhat expected with 4 goals in the game.  Tanner Kaspick who has had a very strong summer and is vaulting up the rankings had 2 goals as did Dawson Martin. 

Other notables in our top 50 prospects in the 98 group:
Ty Lewis:  1 assists
Brett Howden:  0 points
Vince Loschiavio: 1-1-2
Dylan Thiessen:  1-1-2
Dman, Garrett Kuklica: 0 points

Saskatoon Jr. Blades 6 - Manitoba Lightning Extreme 4
In what seems to be a bit of an off year for the Saskatoon Jr. Blades program, they were able to sneak away with a 6-4 win over the Manitoba Lightning Extreme squad.  The Lightning Extreme actually held a 4-3 advantage after the 2nd period of play.  The Lightning Extreme had goals from four different players; Turnbull, Sinclair, Touchette and Goethels.  The Saskatoon Jr. Blades got a big game from possible top 10 talent Garrett Pilon with 2-1-3, Dawson Davidson who lit up the ssbhl peewee league last year had a pair of goals while his linemate Cale Fleury chipped in with 2 assists.  Kaden Elder and Brayden Camrud who are both from the gshl had 1-1-2.

Southern Alberta Selects 6 - Manitoba Predators 5
Brandon Schuldhaus had a big first game of the tournament for the SA Selects with 2-2-4.  For those of you wondering who Schuldhaus is becuase he wasn't in our top 50 98 born rankings, he played with Bow Valley last year in the peewee scahl league and had 32-39-71 which placed him 6th in the league scoring race.  He was team-mates with highly touted Noah Philp and Dillon Dube.  Lucas Fraulin had 2 goals in the game and Michael Clarke who is someone to really watch had 1-2-3 and Kadrien Klimchuk 1-1-2.  For the Predators, it was Michael Skoloski (who we really like) with 1-1-2, Josh Curtis and William Koop also had 1-1-2. 

Vancouver Selects 7 - Minnesota Blades 5
Another of the pre-tournament favorites, the Vancouver Selects were able to sneak by the Minnesota Blades 7-5 this morning.  Michael Regush was quite easily the star of the game looking dangerous with 3 goals.  Owen Seidel who should make noise as a first year in BWC next year had 1-2-3, Kenny Kylyshbek had a nice game with 1-2-3.  Highly touted players Ryan Bowen and Beck Melenstyn also scored for Vancouver.  For the Minnesota Blades of note, Kiefer Bellows, the son of former NHL star Brian Bellows, scored 2-1-3.  Joey Anderson had a multiple point effort with 1-3-4 and Grady Hauswirth 1-2-3.

Vancouver Vipers 8 - Minnesota Machine 0
To nobodies surprised the powerhouse Vancouver Vipers defeated the Minnesota Machine by a rather lopsided score.  Dante Hannoun picked up a natural hat-trick in the 3rd period to really put this one away.  BWC forward Kyle Uy scored a pair of goals, while top five 98 born prospect Jaeger White had 1-2-3.  Also with a huge game was Luke Gingras with 1-3-4, figuring in on the Vipers first 4 goals scored.  The Vipers will be the odds on favorite along with the Wolverines in this tournament.

Alberta Wolverines 9 - Calgary Jr. Hitmen 0
The Wolverines who are one of the favourites to win the tournament got their first chance to flex their muscles in the tournament and they did just that with a 9-0 victory.  Top 10 wehp 98 born prospect Sam Steel scored 2-3-5 with a huge game!  Jordan Taupert another one of our top 50 prospects for the 2013 WHL draft had 2-4-6!  Ryan Jevne also scored twice for the Wolverines who look to be tough to stop in this tournament. 

Saskatoon Jr. Blades 6 - Minnesota Icemen 1
The Saskatoon Jr. Blades run their record to 2-0-0 with a big win over the over-matched Minnesota Iceman.  The Icemen have now been out-scored 17-3 in their first pair of games.  Zach Andrusiak from the Yorkton area led the way with 2-1-3, Kolby Johnson also scored twice for the Jr. Blades.  Garrett Pilon continued his good tournament with a pair of helpers.  Kaden Elder once again had a multiple point game as well with 1-1-2.  Justin Close was the goalie for the Jr. Blades.

Jr. Steelers 9 - Manitoba Lightning Extreme 0
The Jr. Steelers have run their record to 2-0-0 having out-scored the opposition now 20-2 in the process with a big win over the Extreme.  Vince Loschiavo scored 3 goals in this way to lead the way on the goal sheet, he now has 4.  Dylan Thiessen had a break-out game with 2-3-5, Brett Howden scored 2, Tanner Kaspick had a pair.  Keaten Thornton and Ty Lewis each had 3 helpers while Nolan Patrick was held to just 1 assist.

Vancouver Selects 10 - Manitoba Predators 2
The Selects are now also 2-0-0, while the Predators are done to 0-2-0 after a big 10-2 Vancouver Selects win.  Davis Koch had 2-2-4 to lead the way for the Selects.  Other multiple point getters were:  Kailer Yamamoto 2-2-4, Beck Melenstyn with another 2 goals, giving him 3 now, Michael Regush with 1-2-3.  The Predators markers were, Brakel and Ferrairo.
