Dmitri Samorukov and the Guelph Storm outed the Prince Albert Raiders from the 2019 Memorial Cup on Tuesday, defeating the Western Hockey League representatives by a score of 5-2.
Isaac Ratcliffe and Nick Suzuki put up six points combined, while Oilers defence prospect Samorukov was held off the scoresheet. Edmonton's 84th-overall selection in the 2017 NHL Draft went plus-two on the night and threw four shots on goal in the victory. He has one assist in three games.
Samorukov and the Storm are 2-1 in the tournament, scoring 12 goals for and allowing eight against.
Three clubs now remain in the 2019 Memorial Cup, including Oilers prospect and Halifax Mooseheads forward Ostap Safin. The 2017 fourth-rounder will face the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies on Wednesday at 5:00 PM MDT.
