MacKenzie Entwistle scored his first goal of the 2019 Memorial Cup and 38th goal of the season in a 5-2 win over the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.
In a matchup between the OHL and QMJHL champions, a first period hat trick from 2017 4th-round pick Alexey Toropchenko helped the Storm grab a 3-1 lead over Rouyn-Noranda. That's when Entwistle went to work.
On the receiving end of some beautiful passing, Enwistle flipped home a shot on the rush to give the Storm their largest lead of the game and all the insurance they would need against the Huskies.
After making his Memorial Cup debut with the Hamilton Bulldogs last season, Entwistle will look to leave Halifax with some hardware in 2019. The Storm face the Halifax Mooseheads and Blackhawks prospects Jake Ryczek and Alexis Gravel on Sunday.
