Colts – 5 / Spitfires – 1
I can confirm scouts from the Columbus Blue Jackets, Phoenix Coyotes, and Buffalo Sabres were in attendance.
Notable scratches: Eric Locke (upper-body injury)
C – Mark Scheifele, Jets – Scheifele was the best player on the ice, in my opinion. He created so many chances for himself and his teammates that I lost count. He was dishing tape-to-tape passes all night long and he even potted a goal of his own. Scheifele was very consistent from shift-to-shift and was a force all throughout the game. He did, however, lose his cool at times as he didn’t like it when the Spitfires tried to push him around. Heck, Scheifele was even involved in a line brawl. It was great to see him stand up for himself. If he didn’t/doesn’t stand up for himself, he’ll be pushed around all year long.
Stat line – 1 goal, 3 assists, +2, 2PIMs
D – Brandon De...
