Matchup #1 – Connor Bedard (Regina Pats) vs. Seth Jarvis (Portland Winterhawks)
March 12, 2021 – Connor Bedard vs. Prince Albert Raiders
What a way to burst on to the scene. In his WHL debut, 15-year-old exceptional status phenom Connor Bedard broke into the offensive zone and turned a Raiders defenceman inside-out before firing a wrist shot to the top shelf for his first-career WHL goal. Bedard’s wicked release is something fans of the Regina Pats have come to love while rival fans across the East Division have come to dread it.
April 24, 2021 – Seth Jarvis vs. Seattle Thunderbirds
Carolina Hurricanes prospect Seth Jarvis scores his first of three goals on the night against the Seattle Thunderbirds. Opening up space with a nice spin move in the face-off circle, Jarvis drops for Jaydon Dureau before taking a return feed in tight and lifting a backhand past the Thunderbirds goaltender to give Portland a 4-2 advantage en route to a 6-3 victory.
