CALGARY, AB -- While the Abbotsford Heat were stifled by the Utica Comets in overtime in back-to-back games this weekend, rookie Markus Granlund came up big for his club in both outings.
On Friday night, he was leading the charge on the forecheck and ending up putting five shots on Utica netminder Joacim Eriksson, leading all Heat skaters.
He tied Ben Street for the team lead in goals (17) on Saturday night with a first period tally. He added an assist in the second period, setting up Max Reinhart's short-handed marker, to push his point total 30 in 39 games.
