With the Edmonton Oils Kings staring at a possible 3-1 deficit in the WHL Eastern Conference Finals, Michael St. Croix (2011 - 4th) dropped four points (1g, 4a) on the Calgary Hitman to help his team tie the series at 2-2 with a 7-3 victory.

For his efforts, Buzzing the Net named St. Croix their No. 1 star of the night.

If this kid can fill out a bit and not let his size hurt him he can be great. I'm so excited to see this group of draft picks come through the line here soon.
@PenaltySh0t It all depends on how much Torts & the coaching staff handcuff his offensive abilities when instilling "the system"...
