Training Camp Day 2 Recap

Day 2 started similar to Day 1. A high scoring game ending in overtime with Team Red coming away victorious.

Things took a while to get rolling, as the first goal didn’t come until 7:40 into the game. Ben Poisson took a nice feed from Kyle Johnson, and roofed it into the top left corner for the go ahead goal. Red would respond with two goals in two minutes to cap off the period though. Cameron Obcena took advantage of a bouncing puck in the right corner, and came out front to tie the game at one. Then it was Travis Schneider driving the net with a shot, and banging in his own rebound for a 2-1 lead.

In the 2nd period it was Red to start again as Brett Mennear took advantage of a funny hop off the back boards and scored to start things off. White rallied with three goals of their own from Kazeem Bapoo, Devin Sutton, and Parker Colley to retake the lead at 4-3. Before time experienced, Chris Pederson was able to tie the game up heading to the third.

The final period saw both teams exchange the lead. White scored early with Ryan Stack saucering the puck over perfectly for Kyle Johnson to chip over the goalie in a Burnaby Winter Club connection goal with Johnson being an alumni, and Stack leading the Elite 15’s in scoring last year.

Veteran Brett Mennear imposed his will after that, scoring twice to give Red the lead again at 6-5. With just under a minute to go, Red took a hooking penalty to give White an opportunity to tie things up. They would do just that as Johnson had his second of the game with 32 seconds remaining for the tying goal. White would take a penalty with ten seconds left, and it wouldn’t hurt them in regulation, but it did in overtime.

OT started four on three as Team Red had the powerplay. Things ended quickly as just moments in Drew Lennon scored his first of the training camp to give Red a perfect 3-0 record following a 7-6 overtime win.

With 52 goals in the first four games, the expectation that it would be another goal scoring fest in game two.

The opposite would occur though as Team Blue smothered Team Red for a 2-0 win breaking Red’s perfect record.

Jamie Huber scored six minutes in with Tanner Campbell and Chong Hyun Lee picking up the assists. The three would connect again in the third, with Campbell finding twine this time around and Hyun Lee and Huber adding assists.

For Team Blue, the shutout was shared by three goalies as Aris Anagnostopoulos, Aaron Jakubowski, and Jake Sweet each played one period.

The final regular intrasquad game would be another defensive battle with Blue again shutting things down allowing just one goal against White in a 4-1 win.

Scoring started early with White taking the lead 2:44 in. Kazeem Bapoo was able to knock in his fourth goal of the weekend which put him in second place for training camp goal scoring just one behind Kyle Johnson who had five.

After that it was all Blue as they smothered White defensively, and scored four unanswered. Just before the halfway mark of the second, it was Cavin Tilsley taking a pass from Isaac Dutka and beating Marcus Allen for the first time of the night to tie the game at one. After the flood halfway through the game, Jamie Huber scored the eventual game winning connecting on another nice set of passes from Hyun Lee and Campbell who had strong chemistry at the tail end of the intrasquad games. Braeden Young would snipe a shot after streaking down the left side for insurance, and after coming out of the penalty box, Daniel Chifan sealed the game with an empty netter for the 4-1 win.
