Every player was clicking. Nate Danielson led the way offensively with 1 Goal and 2 Assists earning first star, blue liner Andrei Malyavin was able to score his first WHL goal and Carson Bjarnason picked up his first career WHL shutout stopping all 29 shots he faced.

Since being acquired, Zimmer has picked up 4 assists in 9 games played and added a shootout winner for the Hurricanes.
