- After missing Tuesday’s scrimmage due to family reasons, Connor Crisp was back on the ice on Wednesday. He suited up for Team White.
- Come scrimmage time, Mac Bennett and Daniel Audette gave Team Red a 2-0 lead in the opening frame. Both players capitalized on rebounds to beat goaltender Alex Dubeau. For his part, Artturi Lehkonen failed to score on a penalty shot opportunity. He was unable to put the puck past Matthew Mancina. Team White got things going late in the period, as Taylor Burke found the back of the net to cut Team Red’s lead to 2-1.
Team Red put the game out of reach in the second period, courtesy of goals by Audette, Charles Hudon and Markus Eisenschmid, who scored twice down the stretch to pace his squad to a 6-2 victory. Zachary Fucale was stellar between the pipes, conceding just one goal in 40 minutes played. Only Tim McGauley managed to score on the Rosemere native.
