“I think the biggest thing is when we are on our toes and competing and hard on pucks, we are a good hockey team. We have done that all year, and when we’re relentless, get after guys instead of sitting and watching, we play better. Sometimes you get in a tournament like this and guys are spectators instead of players. Even the last game we sat back in the first 10 minutes, so we just have to be ready to play and start on time.”

- Dauphin Kings head coach and general manager Doug Hedley on his team’s five-goal second period

“We had a really good first period; that’s the type of game we want to have early on. The second period was probably 50-50, and the third it was important for us to come out strong and manage the puck well. We have to give [Pickering] credit, they pushed back. We just have to keep our heads up and make sure we’re coming back stronger the next game.”

- Collège Français de Longueuil head coach Éric Bouchard on an overtime loss to Pickering

“If you come into this tournament and understand that the round robin is huge, we understand how important of a win this was for us. We just told the guys, when we get to overtime just go for it, be smart and go for it. We got a lucky bounce, the puck bounced out and [Ian Martin] did a great job racing for the puck. He got the job done for us.”

- Pickering Panthers head coach Rob Pearson on a key victory for his team
