Liam Krupcysnski collected a power play marker, shooting the puck through the net at 16:08, scoring his second of the season.

The Stampeders added a pair of first MJHL goals in the second period. Matthew Munro collected his on a blast from the point at 10:54 on the power play and Ian Ness scored two minutes later giving the Stampeders a 5-1 lead through 40 minutes of play.

Carter Demelo and Rhylan Baxter added goals in the third period but it wasn’t enough as the Stampeders skated to their first win of 2024.
