Day four of Hitmen Training Camp Monday at Scotiabank Saddledome saw all four teams take to the ice in the afternoon for the respected gold and bronze medal scrimmages. Below is the scoring summary of the contests.
Team Ladd 4 Team Stone 3 – Bronze Medal Game
Team Ladd hung on for the win despite a late push from Team Stone to claim bronze in the first scrimmage of the day. Anton Yatsyshin led the way with a two-goal performance while 2019 tenth rounder Joah Morberg and 2020 first rounder Oliver Tulk rounded out the scoring. Tulk’s third goal of the weekend held up as the game winner.
Zephyr LaPlante, 2019 ninth rounder Jarred Feist and Tristan Zandee replied for Team Stone, as Zandee’s goal off a deflection in the slot with 35 seconds left to play set up a frantic finish but came just short of finding the equalizer.
Team Jones 5 Team Getzlaf 3 – Gold Medal Game
Team Jones claimed gold with a 5-3 victory over Team Getzlaf in a thrilling clash. Brandon Whynott led the charge with two goals, one marker on a penalty shot, as Cade Moxham, Cael Zimmerman and Keanan Pearman added singles. The contest was tied 2-2 after 25 minutes before Team Jones started to pull away with the teams trading scoring opportunities for the remainder of the game.
