Stampeders Blank the OCN Blizzard 4-0 Tuesday Night

The Swan Valley Stampeders picked up a massive two points in OCN Tuesday night, beating the Blizzard 4-0 at the Gordon Lathlin Memorial Centre.

The Stampeder offence was led by Nicolas Roussel (1G, 1A) along with Ethan Matchim, Cole Chauvette and Adam Rajsigl who all scored a goal while Dylan Black posted a shutout stopping all 30 shots he faced in the win.

Matchim has been on fire the last few games for his team, scoring the game’s first goal 7:26 into the opening frame for his fifth of the season. Matchim has now scored four goals in four straight games.

Chauvette collected his first-ever goal as a Stampeder Tuesday night, letting a harmless wrister go from the point that found its way through the traffic out front 15:10 into the middle frame.

Roussel added to his point collection, scoring his third of the year 40 seconds into the third period giving his team a 3-0 on the power play. Rajsigl walked in off the point and sent home his seventh of the season, beating Steven Bacovsky on the power play just over a minute later and the Stampeders skated to a 4-0 win on the road.
