CHL Three Stars:

After 24 one-goal games last season, Arizona Coyotes prosepct Conor Geekie tallied his first career multi-goal WHL game and did so in fashion as he scored a hat-trick in Winnipeg’s 5-2 win in Medicine Hat as he was named the night’s first star.

In a crazy game in Saginaw, Anaheim Ducks prospect Pavel Mintyukov collected five points (1G, 4A) to earn the second star as the Spirit beat Guelph 10-6.

A likely top pick in the 2023 NHL Draft, Kelowna’s Andrew Cristall career-high four assists earned him the third star as the Rockets won 5-1 in Prince George.

  • The Michael Misa show has finally arrived. The eighth man to earn exceptional player status in CHL history, Misa’s debut was memorable as he scored twice in Saginaw’s 10-6 win over Guelph.
