- I missed the whole first period, and that's when the Struble-Sookro-Lamo line did the bulk of their damage, but I saw enough to see that Struble was easily the best player on the ice, which isn't a huge surprise. He made some moves at full speed in the open ice that most junior aged players can't.

- Sookro put up 60 points (29g-31a) in 50 games for Beaver Valley in the KIJHL last season. He's a 20-year-old, and could fill a role like Craig Eisenhut did last season.

- Until I looked at my program, I thought Jamie Vlanich was Zak Majkowski. Vlanich is on the smaller side, but shoots right, and even has similar hair flowing out of his helmet! Vlanich is from B.C., played Jr 'B' last season, like Majkowski also did as a 17-year-old. Vlanich is now 18, and shows a lot of promise.

- On defense, the Norrish twins looked solid together. Kelly Leismeister had a pair of assists in the Black/Orange game. I liked the composure and skill of (94) Dylan Baer.

The Terriers host Melville in their rookie game on Monday at 2:00... I'm just waiting on a fax from Melville from their Blue & White game.
