"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
