OLDS — Chis Gerrie scored in overtime as the Olds Grizzlys downed the Camrose Kodiaks 2-1 in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Tuesday.

Kyle Star gave the Grizzlys a 1-0 lead with a penalty-shot goal at 14:21 of the second period and Connor Mailey replied for the Kodiaks on the power play just over three minutes later.

Ethan Jemieff made 36 saves for the win before 350 fans at the Sportsplex, while Kodiaks netminder Devin McDonald blocked 30 shots.

• Grizzlys defenceman Nikolas Koberstein has been named to the Team West roster for the Canadian Junior Hockey League Prospects Games Nov. 8-9 in Digby and Yarmouth, N.S.

The annual contest showcases the top NHL prospects in the CJHL and includes players from the CJHL’s five western and five eastern leagues. Player selection for the annual CJHL Prospects Games is a joint initiative of the CJHL and NHL Central Scouting.

Other AJHL players who will suit up with Team West are forwards Tanner MacMaster of the Camrose Kodiaks and Tyler Busch of the Spruce Grove Saints. Defenceman Marshall Donald of the Sherwood Park Crusaders was also named to the team but won’t play due to injury.
