Signed Gopher Hockey prospects Mathew Robson and Sam Rossini helped the Penticton Vees capture the 2017 BCHL Fred Page Cup on Tuesday night in a 1-0 overtime Game 7 victory over the Chilliwack Chiefs.
The win marked the third-straight Game 7 contest for Penticton in this year’s BCHL playoffs.
Robson stopped all 26 shots he faced in goal for Penticton for his first shutout of the playoffs. The goaltender, who led the BCHL in regular-season wins (35), shutouts (six) and minutes (2,910) and finished second in the league in regular-season goals against average (1.94) and save percentage (.930), continued his hot streak in the playoffs with 12 wins, a .920 save percentage and a goals against average of 2.21.
Meanwhile, Rossini returned to the Vees’ lineup last night, making his official debut with the team after being injured during an exhibition game last August.
The Vees now head to the 2017 Western Canada Cup – an event the organization is hosting April 29-May 7 at South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton.
