Tri-City Americans defenceman and Calgary Flames prospect Juuso Valimaki is this week’s WHL representative in the CIBC Showdown! In a game against the Spokane Chiefs, Valimaki broke in alone short-handed and slid the puck backwards between his legs before roofing it past the goaltender. The goal was an important part of leading his Americans to a victory over the Chiefs that night.
