Shorty – With Nagy’s shorthanded goal tonight, the Royals now lead the WHL in shorthanded markers with four.

Milestone Man – The Royals’ Dante Hannoun, who played in his 200th WHL game tonight, recorded his 150th (62g-88a) career point. The 1998-born forward is in his fourth season (2014-present).

Island Foes – Island natives and Tri-City Americans forward Jordan Topping (Salt Spring Island) and defenceman Dylan Coghlan (Nanaimo) each scored at least a goal in both weekday contests. Coghlan (2g-1a) and Topping (1g-2a) each had three points tonight.
