Tournament series: The Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks will meet in the final game of the 2016 Young Stars Classic in Penticton on Monday. In last year’s meeting, Julien Proulx and Morgan Klimchuk each scored for the Flames in a 3-2 loss that featured Jake Virtanen’s game-winning goal at 3:47 of overtime.

Flames team scope: Calgary has split their first two games at the Young Stars Classic, netting a 4-1 win against the Winnipeg Jets on Friday before dropping a 4-3 overtime loss against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Mikkel Aagaard and Brayden Burke, both on invites, scored in the third to force extra time. “I’m coming here on an invite and I’m honoured and proud to be here,” Aagaard said. “I’m taking it one day at a time and making sure everyone knows I’m working hard and that I’m proud to be here.” Auston Carroll and Andrew Mangiapane lead Calgary in scoring with two points. Matthew Tkachuk, the No. 6 pick in the 2016 NHL Draft, has one goal and leads the Flames with 20 minutes in penalties.

Canucks team scope: Vancouver split their first two games of the tournament, dropping a 4-1 decision against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday before beating the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Sunday. Tyler Colter had a goal and an assist in the win against the Jets, and paces the Canucks with two points in the tournament. Cole Cassels, Marc-Olivier Roy, and Danny Moynihan have also scoured in the exhibition Vancouver.
