Kolby Hay was lights out in the Oil Kings goal Friday as his 44-save shutout earned him the evening’s second star. It was the first WHL shutout of his career in his 61st game.

Saint John’s rookie blueliner Nicolas Bilodeau scored his first career hat-trick in a 7-3 win over Acadie-Bathurst to collect the third star. Bilodeau’s 22 points leads all QMJHL rookie blueliners.
