2018 recruit Ryan O’Connell, assisted on a pair of third-period goals, including the game-winner, as BCHL Penticton edged Alberni Valley, 3-2. For the 6’2” defenseman drafted by Toronto in the 7th round this past June, it was his first point since joining the Vees this season. Last season, O’Connell had 33 points in 47 games for St. Andrews College in Ontario.

2018 recruit Matthew Quercia’s  goal was the only tally for USHL Sioux Falls in the Stampede’s 4-1 loss to Fargo. A power forward from Andover, Massachusetts, he is in his second USHL season and previously played for the New Hampshire Junior Monarchs.
