Tigers Fall 7-4 to Wheat Kings
The Tigers travelled to Manitoba for a quick weekend road trip. They started off with a trip to Brandon to take on the Wheat Kings. The game featured a couple of interesting storylines. It was the first game for Cayden Glover in his hometown and the first time that brothers, Noah Danielson and Nate Danielson, faced off in the WHL.
The Wheat Kings opened the scoring 2:17 into the first period. Vincent Iorio scored his second of the season off a quick wrister from the top of the left circle. Brandon added to their lead a couple of minutes later. Marcus Kallionkieli found Ridly Greig in front of the net with a slap pass from the corner. Greig redirected the pass into the net for this 10th of the season. The Tigers would cut the lead a little over a minute later when Daniel Baker netted his third of the season. Baker found the short side of the net with a wrister off a give and go with Brayden Boehm. Oasiz Wiesblatt also picked up an assist on the goal.
Brandon reinstituted their two goal lead early in the second frame. Ridly Greig and Marcus Kallionkieli connected again, this time while shorthanded. Kallionkieli found Greig alone in front of the net for his second of the game. Kallionkieli would add to his stats midway though the second with a power play goal. He found a loose puck next the net and put it home for his third of the season. The Wheat Kings would strike again only 42 seconds later to make it a 5-1 game. Jacob Hoffrogge broke out Brett Hyland with a pass that sent him on a breakaway. Hyland let a quick wrister that beat the goalie five hole for his 4th of the season. The Tigers would make it a three goal game before the end of the period. Cayden Glover grabbed the rebound off Brayden Boehm's shot and put it away for his first career WHL goal.
Ridly Greig completed his first career hat trick midway through the third period. Nolan Ritchie kept the puck in the offensive zone and found Greig alone for a breakaway. His initial shot was saved but he put in his own rebound. The Tigers scored two quick goals midway through the period to cut the lead to 6-4. Cayden Glover's shot beat the Brandon netminder but needed a little help to get in. Steven Arp put home the loose puck in the blue paint for his second of the season. Daniel Baker added to his game stats with the secondary assist. A little over the minute later, while on the power play, Lukas Svejkovsky scored his team leading 10th of the year. Tyler MacKenzie and Noah Danielson grabbed the assists on the special team marker. The Wheat Kings would add a late goal to give them a 7-4 victory. Ridly Greig was driving to the net and took out Garin Bjorklund. Nate Danielson was there to put the loose puck into the empty net for his third of the season.
Beckett Langkow (2-3-1-1) and Garin Bjorklund (2-8-2-0) split the game in net for the Tigers. Langkow got the start in net and made 14 saves on 19 shots. Bjorklund finished the game and made 11 saves on 13 shots.
