#42 – Paul LaDue
#62 – Zac Leslie
#56 – Kurtis MacDermid

#65 – Patrik Bartosak
#35 – J.F. Berube late scratch, precautionary reasons

FIRST HALF – It’s four-on-four hockey due to the limited number of players…Bartosak in goal for White, Niederberger for Black (the ‘visiting’ team)…goals by Mersch (he took it away from a defender behind the net, brought it out front and scored) and Zykov (rebound came out to Brodzinski, who shot it, Zykov converted) for Black…Pearson (wrist shot, under glove) and Weal (one-timed a shot from Hyka) for White…now a pure snipe from Toffoli (from Mersch), followed by a second goal from Toffoli moments later when he converts a rebound in front…Forbort can shake off most forwards with the use of his long stick…Zyknov never met a shot he doesn’t like.

Team Black is rotating their goalies, haven’t seen Berube play yet though (update: late scratch, not injured, just precautionary)…Kitsyn tips in a shot Miller took from the point…now Dowd stopped on a breakaway…there was a penalty situation, skating 4-3 now, the Kings couldn’t score…top shelf goal by Pearson makes it 5-3 (he took a pass from Ebert, who made a spin-around back-handed dish, very Doughty-esque)…both Pearson goals were against Bartosak…break time.

NOTE: Word is Bartosak will go back to junior. His core fitness level is being compared to Jonathan Quick at the same age/status.

SECOND HALF – Mersch scores for Team Black…Maclise is firing away from the point…Brodzinski was in tight and tried to jam it in, no luck…Pearson hits the post…Dowd with another breakaway chance, but Sabourin cuts him off right as he was about to shoot…then, going back the other way, Shore scores top-shelf for Team White, who haven’t had the puck much this period…Mersch is playing a very good ‘game’ (nice back checks, etc.)…in a 10 goal game, Fotinos has only allowed two goals…Gravel continues to impress on defense…Andreoff top shelf, beautiful goal…moments later Weal scores his second of the game, tying things up 6-6.

O’Neill shoots, the puck lays in the crease for a brief moment and Weal taps it in, White now lead 7-6…but, we’re going to a shootout.

Shootout results… Zkylov stick-handles a bit and then scores five-hole…Leslie denied…Auger no goal…Ebert backhand, top shelf…Brodzinski stopped…MacDermid goes real wide, stopped…Mersch comes in slow and deliberate, stick-handles, scores from a bad angle…Hyka scores five-hole…Toffoli winds up with the biggest slapshot you’ve ever seen right in front of the goalie and scores…Sabourin scores.



1st – Pearson
2nd – Mersch
3rd – Gravel
