Philip Tomasino (Oshawa Generals) scored a goal and an assist while Connor McMichael (London Knights) also found the back of the net to lead Team White to a 4-2 win in intrasquad action in Red Deer on Saturday.
Following several days of practice and off-ice activity, players divided into teams for organized play to kick-off the weekend as Team White outshot Team Red 27-25 and went 2-for-3 on the power play.
Brett Brochu (London Knights) contributed to the win in goal, stopping 12 of the 14 shots he faced. Other Team White markers came off the sticks of Gage Goncalves (Everett Silvertips) and Dylan Cozens (Lethbridge Hurricanes), who both scored power play goals.
Cole Perfetti (Saginaw Spirit) picked up an assist on the losing side. Justin Barron (Halifax Mooseheads) and Jakob Pelletier (Val-d’Or Foreurs) potted Team Red goals.
The scrimmage came after Hockey Canada issued a statement announcing a non-core member of the National Junior Team staff had tested positive for COVID-19. The staff member who tested positive, along with a number of colleagues who had been in close contact were placed in quarantine at the team hotel in Red Deer. Hockey Canada continues to follow all protocols as directed by Alberta Health Services and will monitor the situation closely with the health and well-being of all players and staff at the forefront.
The two squads hit the ice for another intrasquad matchup on Sunday at 8:00pm ET.
