Matchup #2 – Henrik Rybinski (Seattle Thunderbirds) vs. Jake Neighbours (Edmonton Oil Kings)
April 11, 2021 – Henrik Rybinski vs. Tri-City Americans
Seattle Thunderbirds forward Henrik Rybinski scored four of his seven goals during the 2020-21 WHL season against the Americans, but this tally was the nicest. Rybinski took a pass from teammate Jeremy Hanzel off a won face-off. From in close, the 19-year-old turned and roofed the puck to make quick work of a Thunderbirds power-play, and even the score at 2-2.
February 26, 2021 – Jake Neighbours vs. Lethbridge Hurricanes
St. Louis Blues prospect Jake Neighbours enjoyed a three-point outing in his first game of the 2020-21 WHL season, opening his goal-scoring account on this beauty against the Hurricanes. Neighbours accepted a pass on the right wing, then outwaited the Lethbridge netminder before coolly slotting the puck past an outstretched right pad. Neighbours finished with three points on the night as the Oil Kings won 7-1.
