Edmonds Is Key For Cats

A hot goalie can carry a team deep into the playoffs. Think back to 2012 and what Laurent Brossoit did for the Edmonton Oil Kings, or 2013 when the Portland Winterhawks rode Mac Curruth to the WHL championship, or last year, when Tristan Jarry backstopped the Oil Kings to their second Ed Chynoweth Cup in three years. They all got hot at the right time. That time is now for Ty Edmonds. While nobody expects his Prince George Cougars to run the table and win their first league playoff title, if their 18-year-old sophomore goalie keeps playing like he has the past six weeks, he gives the Cougars a chance to pull off a shocker and beat the Victoria Royals in a best-of-seven series, which starts tonight in Victoria. “Without quality goaltending you don’t go far and since February 1 he’s provided that,” said Cougars head coach Mark Holick. “He’s battled through some injuries and sickness, a lot of stuff we don’t make public, and the kid’s competed. He had to play a lot (in his rookie season) and I think that benefited him this year.” Edmonds was the Cougars’ most valuable player down the stretch to deliver them into the playoffs for the first time in four seasons. In February he went 5-2-1-1 with a 2.85 goals-against average and .925 save percentage and followed that up in March with a 5-2-0-1 run, compiling a 3.51 goals-against average and .902 save percentage. “It’s amazing what he’s done for us,” said Cougars veteran winger Jari Erricson. “Ty has been the backbone of this team throughout the year really, he’s taken criticism and he’s used it all (for inspiration) – he’s been everything to us. Sick or healthy, he’s always found a way to battle through and come up big for us.” To read more Click Here Edmonds has been training with GDI for 7 years through 1v1 lessons and the Total GDI Academy. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Junior A News    

Pistons Take 2-1 Series Lead

Nick Deery and the Steinbach Pistons were able to take a 2-1 series lead with a 2-1 overtime victory over Scott Parsons and the Winnipeg Blues Sunday night. Both goalies played exceptionally well as Deery turned aside 25 of the 26 shots sent his way. Deery was also named the game's first star. Parsons was a bit more busy in the loss as he made 32 saves on the night. Parsons was also named the game's second star. Game 4 of this tight series will go at 7:30 Wednesday night at the MTS Iceplex. Deery has been training with GDI for over 2 years through 1v1 lessons and the Total GDI Academy. GDI Instructor Dan Ferguson is also the goaltending coach for the Steinbach Pistons.  Parsons has been training with GDI for 7 years through 1v1 lessons and GDI Summer Camps. __________________________________________________________________________________________
