Anthony Mantha scored twice in regulation for Val-d'Or, while Brandon Hynes added a single.

Yan Pavel Laplante scored a hat trick for P.E.I., with his last two goals tying the game in the third period.

Rocket goaltender Antoine Bibeau meanwhile stopped 54 shots.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
