The management certificate student, in his second year, had the tying goal against the SAIT Trojans on Friday in Calgary. The 4-3 overtime loss. Then, he scored the double overtime winner, on a backhanded shot, on Saturday against the Trojans in Red Deer. He also played strong defensively over the weekend, including on several penalty kills.
