Thursday AMBHL Action
Calgary Royals (2-2-0) 4 - Airdrie Xtreme (1-3-0) 2
The Calgary Royals opened up a early 2nd period lead of 3-0 and never looked back in moving to .500 on the year. The only returning player from last years great squad - Sean Montgomery led the way with 2 goals, he now has 3 goals in 4 games this year. Montgomery is expected to carry the brunt of the offensive load and does appear in our rankings early on this season. Adam Marcoux, who we interviewed in our latest newsletter was stellar in turning aside 44/46 shots. Marcoux is originally from Quebec. At the other end, Kurtis Chapman was also very good in stopping 41/45 shots and Jared Janke led the way with 1-1-2. Janke, who has just played 2 games this year so far, has 3 points.

Steel now has 5-6-11 in 3 games but all of those points have come in the past 2 games after the 3-0 opening day shutout loss to SSAC. D- Jacob Halliday had 1-2-3 and Carter Hart in goal was outstanding, stopping 48/50 shots. For Edmonton KC, Jake Schnack scored both goals and Alex Rotundo assisted on both.
