It was a pretty quiet Thursday evening across western Canada with just a handful of games taking place.
British Columbia PCAHA
Coquitlam 3 - Abbotsford 0
The Coquitlam Chiefs move to 2-0-1 after an impressive 3-0 victory over the Abbotsford Hawks on Thursday night. This was the first loss of the season for Abbotsford, who started out 3-0-0. For Coquitlam, it was Paul Tucek earning the shutout and Caleb Fantillo figuring in on all 3 Chiefs goals going 2-1-3. '99 born defenseman Scott Walford, who we have highly ranked was very impressive.
NSWC 9 - Burnaby Minor 0
The 2nd overall ranked NSWC Winterhawks move to 2-1-0 with an easy 9-0 win over the now 0-3-0 Burnaby Minior team. Dante Hannoun was tremendous once again at both ends of the ice. The captain played good at both ends of the ice. We still have him in the first round and at this point, it looks like he'll stay there. Quinn Benjafield is a big force out there and continues to improve and grow in to his body. He is a bit awkward but the raw talent is there and is someone to really keep tabs on this year.
BWC 2 - Semiahmoo 2
Semiahmoo remain undefeated at 1-0-2 now and have allowed just 4 goals in 3 games, while BWC has another low scoring game and are 1-1-1. Jaeger White and D - Matt Barberis scored for BWC.
Manitoba AAA Bantam League
Winnipeg Sharks 6 - Southwest 2
The Winnipeg Sharks move to a perfect 4-0-0 and Southwest drops to 1-5-0. Southwest have scored just 7 goals in those 6 games and have allowed 35. Of the 11 teams in the new Manitoba Bantam AAA league, the top four are all Winnipeg based. Southwest got its lone goals from Kirkup and '99 born Tristan Cross. The Sharks were led by team scoring leader Jordan Young who scored 1-2-3. Young now has 7 points in 4 games. D - Garrett Kuklica who is arguably the top ranked Manitoba defenseman for the draft had 1-1-2 and now has 5 points. G - Mitchell Adamyk got the win for the Sharks and continues his strong play.
Saskatchewan - SBAAHL
Regina Silver Foxes 5 - Regina Monarchs 3
The Regina Silver Foxes get their first win of the season in moving to 1-2-0 while the Monarchs drop to 1-1-0. Big things were expected out of the Silver Foxes this season but it has taken a while to get going in the early part of the season. The Silver Foxes have several ranked players as far as top Saskatchewan talent goes so we'll see how they do in Medicine Hat coming up. Parker McCormick was once again a force all over the ice and did figure in the scoring.
