Laurent Brossoit 18/22

Prince Albert
1. Mark McNeill C - McNeill was a handful tonight for the Oil Kings defense. Off the rush and cutting to net are the biggest strengths in his game. McNeill did not stand out in the Subway Super Series as much as one would hope. He is on the cusp of making the Team Canada World Junior Club. He'll need a strong December as well as a strong camp to ensure his spot on the WJC team. I have him as the 13th forward on my mock team due to his versaitility and his strength/speed combination.
2. Luke Siemens G - Siemens was phenomenal tonight. The Oil Kings blitzed him with 50 shots and his team still left with 2 points. Prince Albert broke out to a 3-0 lead, but that's when the Oil Kings really started firing at him. Siemens held the fort as long as he could before the Oil Kings finally broke through in the 3rd period. He was sharp both physically and mentally tonight. Didn't waiver even after the Oil Kings tied it up. Siemens was a great offseason acquisition for the Raiders and has been a big reason why the Raiders are off to such a great start.

1. Henrik Samuelsson RW - Samuelsson was great tonight, both with and without the puck. He was a handful around the Raiders net which made Siemens' game much more specatcular. Samuelsson made a couple of nice dishes that ended up in goals in the 3rd period. Samuelsson is such as great player in traffic or in space. Samuelsson is still a fine complementary for the Oil Kings, as he is player that can play in all situations and thrive.
2. Cody Corbett D - Corbett tallied for the first time on the season tonight. Was much more involved in the offense, something the Oil Kings will need going forward with the acquisition of David Musil on the backend. The Oil Kings are struggling with getting offense from the defense these days, something Corbett can help out on. But the key for him going forward is finding a way to start putting up numbers without sacrificing any of the defensive game. He has been strong defensively for the most part this season. It's time for Corbett to establish himself as an all around defenseman.
