SAHA would catch momentum into the second after a shorthanded goal from Wyatt Brooks (1G) led to three unanswered goals.

Nathaniel Madrigal (31/33) walked away with the win in an impressive all-around performance against Notre Dame.

Pilot Mound Hockey Academy (4) vs Fairmont Hockey (6) U17 Prep

Fairmont would make some noise as this week’s guest team in their first game versus Pilot Mound, with a lot of thanks to a strong bounce back after surrendering the game’s first goal. Brady Witkin (2G, 1A) would score twice in 5:28 to establish a lead exiting the first period. Luke Adam would tally the only goal of the second to bring things back to even, but a three-goal explosion from Fairmont would cement their lead in the third period.

Northern Alberta Xtreme White (10) vs Delta Hockey Academy Black (1) U17 Prep

NAX would pile on ten unanswered goals before surrendering the shutout to a third period goal from Jordan Nguyen. The forward trio of Jack Kibblewhite (3G), Ryan Schrock (1G, 3A) and Gavin Faul (1G, 3A) combined for eleven-points en route to victory. Darius Hordal (1G, 3A) would also provide a steady offensive output from the blueline during this commanding victory over Delta Black. 

OHA Edmonton Black (3) vs BWC Academy White (4) U17 Prep

OHA Edmonton started the game off perfectly, scoring two-goals only 2:37 apart early in the first. They would also manage to kill off a major penalty and another minor later in the frame, still managing to outshoot BWC Academy White in the process. However, BWC Academy White would flip the script in the second period, scoring four-unanswered including back-to-back goals from Mark Lee (2G) late in the period. OHA Edmonton would push heavily in the third, outshooting their opponents 14-5 in the period. Emmett Jones (1G, 1A) would find twine once for OHA Edmonton, but Josh Wu (39/42) would steal his club the win.

Northern Alberta Xtreme (6) vs OHA Edmonton (4) U18 Prep

NAX and OHA Edmonton would open up their U18 Prep CSSHL campaigns with a back-and-forth affair. Hunter Yanick (1G, 1A) would bury one on a 2-on-1 with Kayden Lemire (2A) but Jaxen Gauchier would quickly score one of his own to string some momentum in NAX’s favour. Lukas Kaplan (3G, 1A) would feed off of that momentum and pot two of his own before the end of the frame. Three goals from OHA Edmonton before the halfway point of the third would make for a suspenseful finale. It would be none other than 2023 WHL Draft 1st overall pick, Daxon Rudolph (1G, 1A), to break the tie with a bullet from the blueline, ultimately securing the win for NAX in their first regular season game of the season.

Prairie Hockey Academy Blue (7) vs North Shore Warriors Orange (0) U17 Prep
