A massive junior hockey game was on the schedule last night in Edmonton. It’s not because of the Oilers’ elimination that the city of Edmonton can no longer rock the beat of hockey.
The Oil Kings, who led the WHL Finals 3-2, had the chance to eliminate the Seattle Thunderbirds, win the WHL title (Ed Chynoweth Cup) and buy themselves a ticket to the Memorial Cup. All at the same time in front of more than 7,000 people on Rogers Place, the arena where Conor McDavid and Leon Drystel used to rain or shine.
And seize the opportunity!
Kayden Jules and the Oil Kings had a first period (21-4 in shots on target), and scored the first goal of the match: Jakob Demic’s goal.
At the beginning secondly, Guhle scored his eighth qualifying game to give the team a two-goal protection. What a sharp shot!
Great goal from Kayden Joel. His club, the Edmonton Oil Kings, if they beat Seattle, will go to the Memorial Cup. Edmonton leads 2-0 with a few minutes remaining in the second half.#NHL # Stanlycop #CH #GoHabsGo #oil_kings #WHLpic.twitter.com/SxXBYrKaod

Despite firing 23-15 in the last two engagements, the Thunderbirds were unable to get back into the game. Final score: 2 to 0 in favor of the Oil Kings.
Hopefully the other Thunderbirds – Rocket’s MLS opponents – will be sent on vacation tomorrow night, heh.
Guhle finished the match with one goal, five shots and a difference of Plus 1. I spent a few minutes on the ice …
Thus, the Oil Kings will participate in the Memorial Cup June 20-29 in St John with the Waterfall (QMJHL), the Sea Dogs (the host team) and the winner of the final match between the Hamilton Bulldogs and Windsor Spitfire that will be played tomorrow evening in Hamilton.
Jan Mysak (no points), Arber Xhekaj (one pass) and the Bulldogs weren’t effectively able to emulate the Oil Kings and win Game 6 last night. They survived 5-2 at Windsor. So there will be match #7.
So we will know tomorrow evening whether there will be two (Guhle and Sobolev) or three (Guhle, Mysak and Xhekaj) Canadians in the Memorial Cup. Remember that all tournament matches will be broadcast on RDS.
Back to Guhle…
The Canadian’s selection in the first round in 2020 inherited the title of Most Valuable Player (MVP) for his team in the Playoffs (WHL). Therefore, he holds the equivalent of the Cohn-Smith Cup in the Canadian Western Hockey League. Fabulous!
Remember, Guhle traded with the Oil Kings mid-season. He would have collected 25 points in 25 regular matches, then another 16 (including 8 goals) in 19 play-offs. 16 points is the third-highest total for a man in defense in a WHL playoffs.
in playoffshe will have scored big goals, got important passes, hit the opponent, collected his goals, and caused penalty kicks, Cuts He resumed the attack, fired the net in his favour, and showed the way to the rest of the team.
Will Guhle raises another trophy (collective wow Individual) in the Anniversary Cup? At the Junior World Championships in August?
I can’t wait to see her in Montreal next fall…
