At home on Saturday, the Grizzlys dumped the Grande Prairie Storm 5-3.

Olds jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Jared Power and Landon Gross in the first. Brad Girard scored at 4:48 of the second before Thompson added a power play goal midway through the frame.

Power ended the night with an empty-netter for the Grizzlys.

Andrew Henderson made 19 saves for Olds in the win.
