#CIBCShowdown: Week 2
Portland Winterhawks’ forward Reece Newkirk was ready for October baseball two days early, placing him up for contention in this week’s CIBC Showdown! In Saturday’s game against the Seattle Thunderbirds, Newkirk caught the Thunderbirds off-guard, batting the puck out of mid-air to showcase his hand-eye coordination and completing the highlight reel play.
