Chris Gerrie had two goals and assists, Colton Bobyk and Chase Thudium had a goal and a helper apiece and the Chiefs advanced to defend their gold by beating the Contacts in the semifinals for the second year in a row. 
Ryan Kuffner and Matthew Hudson had a goal and an assist each to lead the offence, and Elias Rizk added two helpers as the Jr. 67’s became the first team from the nation’s capital to reach the gold medal game since 1978.
How do you pick just one? The Red Deer Chiefs offence got goals from five different players and points from 10, winning their second consecutive national championship and taking, as a group, the No. 1 spot on the TELUS Cup 3 Stars of the Day.
Morgan Rielly and Sam Reinhart. One was a top-five pick in last year’s NHL Entry Draft and one is projected to go in the top five next year. Both are Team Canada and TELUS Cup alumni, and both are among the future stars of Canada’s game.
From shutdown defenceman to league-leading scorer, from a trip to the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge to a return engagement with the Saskatoon Contacts at the TELUS Cup, it has been quite a season for Vukie Mpofu.
One year ago, as a member of the host Leduc Oil Kings, Jody Sick watched as the Red Deer Chiefs hoisted the TELUS Cup. This year, Sick gets a second chance at a national championship, this time with his hometown team.
Ryan Kuffner scored on the power play early in the third period and Simon Hofley made 55 saves in the Jr. 67’s goal to help keep Ottawa’s semifinal hopes alive, while the Chiefs advanced to the weekend with the single point. 
Kolten Olynek scored a hat trick and added an assist to take over the tournament scoring lead, and Vukie Mpofu had a goal and two helpers to help the Contacts rout the Wildcats and ensure their spot in the semifinals.
Julien Gauthier had a hat trick and two assists for a five-point night, and Julien Nantel added two goals and two helpers as the Rousseau Royal clinched first place in the preliminary round by routing the host North Stars.
Jody Sick scored twice and added an assist, and Jacob Schofield and Jordie Lawson had a goal and a helper apiece to lead the Chiefs over the winless Wildcats and end a brief two-game winless streak for the Pacific champions.
Marc-Antoine Germain’s second goal of the game with 9:26 left was the winner as the Rousseau Royal won its third in a row by erasing a third-period deficit. Massimo Carozza and Jean-Christophe Bergeron had the other goals.
Matt Pinder and Kolten Olynek traded goals, but it was the goaltenders who stole the show, with Contacts netminder Rylan Parenteau making 35 saves and North Stars counterpart Brian Kment turning away 32 shots in a draw.
