Vancouver Vipers 12 - Ice Hawks 1 (98 Age Group)
- One of the pre tournament favourites, the Vipers up their record to 2-0-0 with a convincing 12-1 victory. Top 5 ranked Jaeger White had a huge game with 9 points, including 3 goals. His linemate, Jake Kryski had 3-2-5 as well. White and Kryski should do considerable damage next year with BWC.
Vancouver Selects Blue 15 - Island Elite 0 (99 Age Group)
The favourite to win the 99 age group got off to a huge start with a 15-0 win over the Island Elite squad. Goaltending Kolby Matthews stopped just 3 shots for the shutout. Leading the way offensively was James Malm with 3-1-4, Michael Rasmussen with 2-2-4, Nolan Jackson 2-3-5 and Brendan Semchuk with 2-1-3. All four players are very high on our 99 born rankings. Buckham, Parm Dhaliwal, Ethan Genge along with defenseman Capstick, Mendal and Bailey Dhaliwal all had singles.
Island Stars 2 - Pacific Stars 1 (99 Age Group)
Bryce Schiebel stopped 10/11 shots he faced and Jackson Doucet along with Tanner Sidaway scored the goals in the win. Trevor Townsend add the lone goal for the Pacific Stars. Stars goalie Matthew Trulsen stopped 18/20 shots.
BC Pirates 4 - Island Selects 0 (99 Age Group)
- Jordan Naylor turns aside all 18 shots he faced in leading the Pirates to an opening victory. Cam Gauer led the attack offensively with 1-1-2. Gauer played last season with NSWC A2. Ethan Grey, Blake Bonnar and Nick Wilson also scored. Top Washington State '99 born Luke Ormsby picked up 1 assist.
Hawks 6 - 99's 1 (99 Age Group)
Matteo Paller Chow stopped 14 of 15 shots for the Hawks and Tyson Lin picked up 2-2-4 in leading the Hawks to the win. Lin, who played with Vancouver Tbirds last season is ranked currently in our top few rounds. Evan Walls had 1-1-2. It should be noted that top '99 born player Henry Rhyu did not play in this game. Nolan Welsh had the lone goal for the 99's. In goal was Beck Warm who stopped 16 of 22.
BC Blackhawks 8 - Alberta Wolfpack 0 (99 Age Group)
Connor Bosa stopped all 18 shots he faced for the Blackhawks. Leading the way offensively with 2 goal games were Eric Bourhill and Andrew Kemp. Kemp also had 2 assists for a 4 point opening game. Jordan Sandhu also had a multiple point effort with 1-2-3. All three players are in our top 110 for '99 born prospects.
Vancouver Selects Blue 2 - Jr. Giants 0 (98 Age Group)
-Naythan Lange turns aside 44/46 shots for the Jr. Giants as the Select Blue outshot the Jr. Giants 46-6. Beck Malenstyn and Kailer Yamamoto scored the goals for the Selects Blue. We expect Malenstyn to be a very high pick in the 2013 bantam draft and a key player for OHA once again next season. Yamamoto is from Washington State. Brody Wilms got the start in net for the Selects Blue. Jesse Lansdell, Kohen Olischefski and Alec Johnson did not play.
Vancouver Vipers 3- Vancouver Selects Black 0 (98 Age Group)
- Tyler Shugrue stopped all 29 shots he faced in earning the shutout for the Vipers who are one of the favourites to win the 98 age group. Scoring for the Vipers was Dylan Thiessen with 2 and Luke Gingras with the other marker. Thiessen played aged advanced in the Winnipeg AAA league last season and was one of the top point producers. Gingras is from Langley and is someone to watch as well for next season. We believe both Thiessen and Gingras to be top 2 round picks next season. Dante Hannoun, another highly regarded '98 born prospect had 3 assists. He'll be one of the top point producers in western Canada next season. Benjafield and Mokhtari both NSWC players did not play.
Kelowna Jr. Rockets 3 - Island Stars 0 (98 Age Group)
- Aris Anagnostopoulos stopped all 23 shots he faced in picking up the shutout for the Jr. Rockets. Eamonn Miller, Spencer Mclean and Joel Scrimbit all scored for Kelowna. John Hawthorne started in goal for the Island Stars and stopped 16 of 19 in his 45 minutes. It should be noted that the tournament is 3- 15 minute periods.
Calgary Jr. Hitmen 8 - North Shore Selects 2 (98 Age Group)
The Jr. Hitmen get 3 goals from Matthew Phillips who is having a fantastic spring hockey season. Phillips is currently ranked in our top 2 rounds and looks primed to take over the leadership on the Calgary Bisons next season. Parker Aucoin who played last year for the Calgary Northstar Sabres had 1-2-3. Aucoin we feel has a good chance at being a top two round pick. Jake Ashton and Kyle Olson each had 1-1-2. Olson is from the Calgary Bisons and is a rare '99 born playing with the 98's. Tak Anholt and Jamie McIntosh scored the goals for North Shore Selects. Anholt was with NSWC last season and should have a good season coming up.
The '99 Vancouver Vipers win their second game of the day with a 10-2 win over PSE Detroit Red Wings.
The '99 Vancouver Vipers defeat the East Coast Selects this afternoon in Toronto by a score of 4-3. Our #1 ranked '99 born prospect Jordy Bellerive scored 3 goals and Chase Stevenson scored the other.
The Vipers play again later this afternoon against the PSE Red Wings.
