Overtime is winding down and the play is picking up. Cody Spagrud corrals the puck and starts to carry it out of his own zone before, in the blink-of-an-eye, lasering a precision-pass beating two defenders, and landing right on the tape of a breaking Elijah Loon-Stewardson.

While the results may not have gone the North Stars’ way through their first two games, the home and home against Kindersley saw some fast-paced, exciting hockey.
