The Olds Grizzlys split a pair of tight shootout contests

The Olds Grizzlys split a pair of tight shootout contests in Alberta Junior Hockey League action over the weekend.

On Friday, the Grizzlys fell behind 2-0 to the Canmore Eagles before Olds’ forward James Gaume cut the lead to one. The two sides traded goals in the second with Olds getting goals from Jared Power and Austin Pickford. Quentin Greenwood tied the game at four early in the third period before Brad Girard gave the Grizzlys a 5-4 lead. Jake Ashton then tied the game on the power play for Canmore at 12:11 in the final frame. Both Ashton and Cody Livingstone scored for the Eagles in the shootout and Landon Gross and Power missed for the Grizzlys. Ben Greisbrecht stood tall for Olds in net with 39 saves between regulation and overtime.

The Grizzlys were on the winning end of a 3-2 shootout Saturday night against the Okotoks Oilers. Ryley Smith was the only shooter to score for either team. After Carter Huber opened the scoring for the Oilers in the first, Braden Nesbitt made it 2-0 in the second. Smith scored his first of the game for Olds late in the second and Austin Pickford tied the game on the power play early in the third. Andrew Henderson made 33 saves in the Olds net.
