The win against Kelowna on Friday marked the third in a row for the G-Men and improved their record against BC Division opponents to 13-4-1-1. The Vancouver club now sits only two points back of the sixth place Seattle Thunderbirds in the Western Conference standings.

The Edmonton Oilers draft pick now leads the team with 22 goals on the season and has at least a point in his last four straight games.
