2014 TELUS Cup
Tanner Wishnowski has been a one-man offensive show for the Okanagan Rockets; he has been in on all six Okanagan goals through two games, and takes home Tuesday’s top spot on the 3 Stars of the Day thanks to his second three-point effort in a row.
Before he tended goal for the Montreal Canadiens, before he won gold with Canada at the World Juniors, before he won a Memorial Cup with the Spokane Chiefs, Dustin Tokarski helped the Prince Albert Mintos hoist the TELUS Cup in 2006.
Before they were NHL defencemen with the Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers, respectively, Eric Gryba and Luke Schenn patrolled the blue-line of the Saskatoon Contacts and won a national championship in Gatineau, Que.
Four years before he was a first-round selection of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft, Brian Propp was a 16-year-old star forward with Yorkton Parkland, helping his team reach the 1975 Wrigley Cup in Oshawa, Ont.
From set-up men to shutdown defencemen, goal scorers to goaltenders, International Scouting Services has chosen three players from each team on the ice at Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw at the 2014 TELUS Cup as Players to Watch.

Moose Jaw held a 3-1 second-period lead, but two highlight-reel plays from Tanner Wishnowski helped Okanagan battle back to draw even, leaving the host Generals and Rockets with just a single point for the second day in a row.
Tyler Longo scored a pair of goals, Max Routledge added two assists and Izzy Benigno turned aside all 22 shots he faced for the shutout as the Young Nationals got into the win column in Moose Jaw, blanking the winless Macs.
Lane Michasiw and Ryan Coughlin were spectacular in goal, Dakota Boutin and Justin Doucet traded power play goals, and the Mintos and Grenadiers skated to an entertaining tie in the Day 2 opener, keeping both teams without a loss.
The host Generals saved the best for last in their TELUS Cup opener, getting goals from Dawson Davidson and Ben Verrall 57 seconds apart midway through the third period to erase a two-goal deficit and earn a tie with the Macs.
Special teams was key for the Grenadiers and Rockets; both teams scored once on the power play and Okanagan added a goal shorthanded as the teams skated to a draw to open their TELUS Cup schedules at Mosaic Place.
Dakota Boutin, Teal Sobkowicz, Lance Yaremchuk and Keegan Kjargaard scored goals, and Connor Ingram made 30 saves, helping the Mintos to the first win at the 2014 TELUS Cup, beating the Young Nationals in the tournament opener.
