Shane Hnidy had a chance to catch up with Jets prospect Adam Lowry during the first period intermission:

"Its been nice getting your feet under it and get ready to play for the season. As a team, we've gotten better every game. It was a bit of a sloppy period but we'll pick it up next period. It's been nice to see the other teams prospects and also nice to get used to playing with guys who could be your future teammates."

SECOND PERIOD

5:26: Vancouver ties things up early in the second period as Sasha Guimond, who has two goals in as many games and five points in the tournament, finishes a quick tic-tac-toe play with Hunter Shinkaruk and Ludwig Blomstrand. 1-1

10:26: Goaltending change. Eric Comrie replaces Olkinuora in net.

After 40 minutes, the Jets and Canucks are all tied up 1-1. Total shots on goal through two periods 25-13 in favour of the Jets.

THIRD PERIOD

3:46: The Jets would get a chance to go ahead on the power play with Tommernes headed to the box for roughing but couldn't find a way past Canucks goaltender Joacim Eriksson.

6:03: Jacob Trouba took his second penalty of the day this time for elbowing. Canucks pp unit went back to work but again, Comrie and his defenders kept the puck out of the net.

13:04: With Ryan Olsen in the box, Canucks' Hunter Shinkaruk made no mistake blasting the puck from the point off the iron and into the net to give the Canucks a 2-1 lead. Frankie Corrado picked up the helper on the play.
