MONTREAL - Joel Teasdale played an important part in the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies' 6-3 win over the Prince Albert Raiders on Monday night.

The Lavaltrie native scored his first goal of the Memorial Cup on a power play late in the first period.

Teasdale added to his points haul late in the third when he contributed on Peter Abbandonato's goal.

After their first two games in Halifax, the Huskies hold a 1-0-1 record. Their final contest of the preliminary round takes place on Wednesday night against the Halifax Mooseheads.

Cole Fonstad

Not to be left out, Cole Fonstad also had a two-point night, also scoring one goal and adding one assist. The Canadiens' fifth-round selection (128th overall) in 2018 also fired five shots on goal and finished with a plus-3 differential, especially impressive given the final score.

Fonstad and the Raiders are the only team in the Memorial Cup who have yet to earn a win.

Prince Albert will face elimination on Tuesday night against Nick Suzuki and the Guelph Storm.
