What makes a standout performance? How about a game winning shorthanded goal in the last minute of a game. That's what Iyogun pulled off against RHA. A quick and highly athletic forward, he can really create offense well on his own. Shoutout to his teammate Noah Nelson for a 43 save performance as well.
Carter Capton (Yale)
Capton posted a 25 save shutout of OHA Edmonton and was in complete control the entire game. Capton is technically advanced and a strong puck tracker giving Yale a formidable last line of defense.
Deagan McMillan (Delta Green)
McMillan strung together 2 solid performances on day 2 of the tournament. A gritty and energetic forward McMillan creates a ton of chances with good hard physical pressure and some good hands around the net.
Brett Calhoon (OHA)
A full on roughband tumble forechecker, Calhoon is often owed the credit for OHA scoring chances. A great angler and puck tracker, his pressure is overwhelming for opponents at times. Earns every chance he gets with great efforts.
Austin Zemlak (OHA Edmonton)
An intimidatingly explosive presence on the ice, Zemlak plays the game hard and opponents need to be aware of his presence on the ice. Outside of some great physicality, Zemlak also possesses the ability to rush the puck and has a cannon from the point.
Kooper Gizowksi (NAX)
A high octane goal scorer, Gizowski can score from a variety of areas and is a consistent threat to shoot when the puck is on his tape. His shot release catches even the most focused goaltenders off guard.
Brent Hoshowski (Lloydminster)
Hoshowski is the middle lane presence that forces opposing defensive schemes to tighten up. A strong and stable skater with a great stick, if he is left unchecked at the net front, it's likely he's going to tip a puck in. He's a handful and a half around the puck.
Matthew Paskiewicz (Calgary Flames)
The Calgary center showcased his excellent playmaking skills and chemistry with linemates Thomas Matte and Drew Freer by racking up another multi-point effort. His creative passing instincts have been extremely difficult to defend through 2 days of the tournament.
Andrew Lacroix (West Van)
A very well rounded player with high level hockey IQ and a smooth offensive skill set, Lacroix tallied a hat trick against RHA leading his team to a 5-1 win. He is often the leader of a team that is stacked with talent.
Connor Koponyas (Calgary Royals)
A 4 goal game from Koponyas paced the Royals in a highly competitive 5-5 tie with OHA Edmonton. Koponyas was all over the ice winning pucks and finding ways to jam pucks into the opposing net.
