YORKTON / WARMAN - It’s Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League Showcase time and that means the Yorkton Terriers playing a pair of games in Warman.
The first of those games was Sunday evening against the Nipawin Hawks and the Terriers started things as Greg Nelson scored only 5:33 into the contest. The goal proved the only marker of the first period.
The game stayed defensive through a scoreless second frame, and most of the third as well.
Dalton Mayes finally gave the Terriers a bit of extra cushion scoring at 16:18, and then netminder Caleb Allen added an unassisted empty netter at 18:14 to round out a 3-0 Yorkton win.
In net Allen was perfect stopping all 41 shots by the Hawks to record the shut-out.
Reid Lalonde faced 40 shots in net, allowing two goals in the loss.
The Terriers face Kindersley Monday afternoon.
The showcase is an opportunity for players to show their talents in front of NHL, CIS and NCAA scouts from across North America.
The SJHL Showcase, which is part of the regular season schedule, features 12 games with each of the league’s 12 teams playing two games.
