Overshadowed in all of the Leduc hoopla was the first goal of the year from the stick of Val-d'Or captain, Cedrick Henley. The 6'5 forward breaks the seal in game #11 of the young season, snapping a 20-game goal slump going back to last February. The Foreurs travel to Drummondville on Friday.
In WHL play, Mark Pysyk (-1) was cited for his first fighting major of the year as Edmonton scored late to overcome Moose Jaw, 2-1. The scrap with 6'2, 185-pound Jordan Wyron, which ensued in the crease just as the Warrior forward had given his club a 1-0 lead, was the fifth of the mild-mannered Pysyk's career. Standout defenseman Griffin Reinhardt ('12) scored both Edmonton goals. The Oil Kings play host to Portland Friday night at Rexall.
