CHL Daily: Sept. 25, 2022

Three stars

After a two-goal performance on Friday, Gabe Klassen doubled his performance on Saturday when he scored the first star of the night in the first four-goal game of the CHL season as the Winterhawks beat Kelowna 6-5 in overtime .

Connor Bedard opened his account in style in 2022-23 when he scored his third WHL hat-trick of his career as he led his Regina Pats to a 6-3 away win at Moose Jaw and the second star of the night.

It was a night to remember for Justin Poirier, making his junior debut as the fourth overall pick in the 2022 QMJHL draft notched a hat-trick as Baie-Comeau defeated Rimouski 7-1 and the rookie earned the third star.


Nightly Notes:

  • Niks Fenenko began his second QMJHL season with two assists in the Drakkar’s win over Rimouski. Fenenko was part of the Latvian World Juniors squad that reached the quarterfinals in August, following a 40-point debut campaign in the Q.
  • Xavier Fortin’s attempt to top his 52-point season a year ago got off to a hot start when he scored four points (one goal) in Baie-Comeau’s monster win over the Oceanic.
  • Val d’Or scored goals from seven different players as they secured their first win of the season after beating Drummondville 7-2 away. Tomas Cibulka, William Provost, Zachael Turgeon, Alexandre Doucet, Thomas Larouche, Nathan Bolduc and Zigmund Zold all scored for the foreurs.
  • One of the QMJHL’s top picks for the 2023 NHL Draft scored his first goal of the season, albeit from an empty goal, as Ethan Gauthier Sherbrooke secured two points in a 4-1 win over Chicoutimi.
  • After a two-goal performance on opening night, Rouyn-Noranda’s Daniil Bourash scored again on Saturday as the Huskies beat Blainville-Boisbriand 4-2. Bourash’s three goals this season are part of a four-way tie for the QMJHL lead.
  • It also made a spectacular debut in the WHL when 2022’s inaugural overall winner Gavin McKenna burst into the limelight with four assists in Medicine Hat’s 9-1 win over Lethbridge.
  • It’s been a solid 24 hours for Jackson Berezowski. On Friday, he was named the 14th singles captain in Everett history. On Saturday, the Saskatechwan native scored his first goal of the season in a 4-1 win over Vancouver.
  • Moose Jaw’s Brayden Yager, a predicted top pick in the 2023 NHL draft, opened his 2022-23 account with a shorthanded goal while providing an assist to Regina in Saturday’s loss.
  • The trend of predicted top picks in 2023 continues as Andrew Cristall has buried his first of the new campaign. The Rockets winger had 28 goals and 69 points in 61 games last year.
  • Zach Benson, another highly acclaimed prospect in 2023, gave Winnipeg the two points when he scored the winning goal against Brandon by just 6.7 seconds. Last season, Benson had 25 goals in 58 games.
  • Finally, Tyler Parr has a flare for drama as the Blades Center buried the OT winner against Prince Albert at 4:59 to give Saskatoon a 2-1 win and cap the weekend’s home-and-home win .
