Petryk scores twice, including winner, as the Silvertips edge the Giants 6-5

EVERETT, Wash. - Reid Petryk scored twice, including the game-winning goal with less than five minutes remaining, as the Everett Silvertips beat the Vancouver Giants 6-5 on Saturday night in Western Hockey League action.

Petryk took a pass off the board to get past the defense, then made a move to his backhand to score his second goal of the game.

Nick Walters, Landon Oslanski, Tyler Sandhu and Ty Mappin also scored for Everett (8-14-2), which was playing without its captain and defensive star Ryan Murray. Murray suffered a dislocated shoulder Friday night against the Victoria Royals and is out indefinitely.

Brett Kulak, Anthony Ast, Kale Kessy, Trevor Cheek and Taylor Vickerman scored for the Giants (7-14-0).

Austin Lotz earned the win in goal, making 21 saves, as Payton Lee stopped 21 shots in a losing cause.

Everett went 2-for-6 on the power play while Vancouver went 1-for-2.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
