It was a tough night for the Western Hockey League on Day 4 of the CHL’s Memorial eCup presented by Kia. Though they put forth valiant efforts, both Jackson Berezowski of the Everett Silvertips and Cole Schwebius of the Kelowna Rockets were eliminated from the tournament Thursday evening.

Jackson Berezowski received a stellar performance from Dustin Wolf, but it wasn’t enough to backstop the Everett Silvertips to victory on this night as Dylan Champlagne and the Acadie-Bathurst Titan advanced to Round 2 of the CHL Memorial eCup.
