Erik Gardiner finished off a hat trick in overtime as the Humboldt won a wild one in Notre Dame 6-5 (OT) on Tuesday night.

The Broncos ran out to a 3-0 first period lead, but Hounds used their powerplay to claw all the way back, scoring four times (4/9) with the man advantage.

If you’re keeping track at home, the 17-year-old Gardiner has four multi-goal games, and he’s only played in eight, scoring 9 times overall, and 12 points.

Chris Van Os-Shaw and Trevor Posch each had a goal and an assist, Dawson Atamanchuk scored and Stephen Wack added three helpers.

Colby Brandt had three assists for the Hounds, while Tyler Podgorenko scored twice.  Rookie Adam Dawe (1g-2a) had a three point night.  Conor MacLean (1g-1a) and Chance Longjohn also hit the scoreboard.


The Estevan Bruins were half a minute away from a regulation loss, and came away with a 6-5 overtime win over the Yorkton Terriers.

The Terriers took a 5-4 lead with 3:12 left in regulation, but Bruins’ defenseman Josh Rieger (1g-1a) tied it up and forced overtime with just 27 seconds to play.  Kaelen Holt potted the OT winner, his second of the night and team-leading 12th of the year, and had 2g-1a on the night.  Matt McNeil finished with 2 goals and 2 assists for the Bruins.  The 20-year-old now has 20-points in 15-games.  Lynden Pastachak added a goal and two assists.

That’s three straight wins for the Bruins, who improve to 11-3-0-1.

For the Terriers (5-6-3-0), McKenzie Welke scored twice while Regan Seiferling (1g-1a), Colby Haugen and Jordan Ross adding the others.


The Battlefords North Stars made it four in a row, with a convincing 8-2 win over Kindersley.

Connor Logan (2g-1a) and Layne Young scored twice each to lead the way.  Brett Horn (1g-1a), Cody Spagrud, Troy Gerein and Bryce Hall all found the net while Conor Jensen added three assists.

Joel Gryzbowski stopped 16/18 shots in goal for the Stars (12-5-0-0), with Kyle Bosch and Branden Wagner the only two to beat him for the Klippers (6-9-0-0).


The Weyburn Red Wings kept within 2 points of Estevan for the lead in the Viterra Division, as they held off the Melfort Mustangs 5-4 on the road.

Noah Wozney scored twice and added one assist, with his second of the night coming with 2:54 left in the third period to stand as the winner.  Braden Mellon (1g-1a), Mike Eskra and Tyran Brown rounded out the scoring.

Rookie Tyler Heidt (1g-2a) had a three point night for the Mustangs (5-9-0-2).  Jaxon Joseph (1g-1a), Andrew Thompson and Rock Rushkowski also found the net.
