Myatovic of PG helps Seattle reach the Memorial Cup Final

Nico Myatovic of Prince George assisted on the first goal and also scored the last goal (into an empty net) for the Seattle Thunderbirds in a 4-1 victory over the Peterborough Petes Friday night in Kamloops.

With the victory, the WHL champion Thunderbirds have advanced to their first-ever Memorial Cup Final.

Seattle will play the Québec Remparts in the championship game Sunday afternoon starting just after 4:00.

The 18-year-old Myatovic set up Brad Lambert at 15:32 of the second period which gave the Thunderbirds a 1-0 lead which they took into the dressing room after 40 minutes.

 

With the Petes goalie pulled for an extra attacker, Myatovic tallied into an empty net with 2:09 left in the third to complete the game’s scoring.

 

Myatovic now has four points in four Memorial Cup games.

Kyle Crnkovic also had a goal and an assist and was named the Player of the Game.

The Thunderbirds outshot the OHL champion Petes 47-28.
