Mid-Season Tuneup Camps:
As the hockey season wears on, a goaltender’s focus naturally drifts as the intense training of the summer time gets farther in the rear view mirror. This is the perfect time for a GDI Midseason Tune-up. This camp refreshes the goaltenders mind and muscle memory. Timed with the Christmas layoff, this provides goalies with an outstanding refresher course just before the stretch run to the playoffs.
GDI will be offering 3 separate locations over the Christmas break for these camps.
Dec. 27: Brandon, MB - Brandon Sportsplex
Dec. 27: Russell, MB - Russell Multiplex
Dec. 28,29,30: Winnipeg, MB- The Rink Training Centre

Edmonds Making A Difference For Prince George
Prince George netminder Ty Edmonds was stellar in the Prince George net, especially in the third period when Kelowna outshot the Cougars 16-4 but could not tie the game.
The Rockets jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead on Prince George in the first period as Nick Merkley scored his 10th of the season just 35 seconds into the game. Justin Kirkland added his 9th of the season midway through the first and the Rockets took a 2-0 lead into the dressing room.
But the Cougars took the game over in the second, scoring four times to take the lead. The Rockets were 1-for-8 on the power play while the Cougars were 1-for-3. Jackson Whistle took the loss in net.

Petit finished the game with 26 saves as the Steinbach Pistons defeated the Wolverines 3-1.

Mowat Shuts The Door
Brittni Mowat shut the door as Bemidji State topped Minnesota State 2-0.
