Two years later Collin Shirley is making the trade that brought him to Kamloops from Kootenay for Tim Bozon look pretty good. The 19-year old Saskatoon native has been on a recent scoring tear with six goals and nine point in the last four games.

Kamloops native and New York Rangers draft pick Ryan Gropp is one of the top scorers for the Seattle Thunderbirds. 

Gage Quinney was a late scratch with a lower body injury --- Garrett Pilon was moved to centre between Sideroff and Shirley.

After 60 minutes the game was tied 3-3, so both teams faced off in 3-3 sudden death overtime. 

Each team has one shot in the OT and Seattle would score on their’s.  Keegan Kolesar from Jarrett Smith for the game winner at 58 seconds of overtime.

The Seattle Thunderbirds stretch their winning streak to five.  The Blazers drop their second in a row in overtime, but have points in 11 of the last 12 and get set to host the Edmonton Oil Kings on Saturday night.
