Evil Empire Stun Oil Kings at Star Wars Night

In a galaxy far, far away the Edmonton Oil Kings clashed in a fierce battle with the evil empire Saskatoon Blades in front of 11,172 fans at Rogers Place.

Falling behind 2-0, the Oil Kings were able to claw back in it and threatened overtime until 9 seconds left in the game when Cameron Hebig stunned the Jedi force with a late goal giving the Blades the 3-2 win.

SAVE OF THE GAME:

Boston Bilous slides across and robs Alec Zawatsky while the Oil Kings were on the penalty-kill. Zawatsky had what looked like a sure goal but the young netminder would stone him keeping it 2-1.

The winning goal by Cameron Hebig with 9 ticks left on the clock sealed the 3-2 win for Saskatoon.

PLAY OF THE GAME:

Trey Fix-Wolanksy loaded up his light sabre…err…stick…and blasted a one-timer from Tomas Soustal past Ryan Kubic 14 seconds into the second period making it 2-1.

PLAYER OF THE GAME:

Trey Fix-Wolansky was a force all night. He scored the Oil Kings first goal and assisted on the tying goal. Honourable mention goes to Darth Vader.

UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME:

Kobe Mohr definitely deserves this as he was feisty all night long and accepted some big hits sacrificing his body in order to make plays.

3 STARS (as chosen by The Jedi Council):

  1. Trey Fix-Wolansky – EOK
  2. Tomas Soustal – EOK
  3. Libor Hajek – SAS
