Memorial Cup update
By Mark Stepneski
Dallas Stars prospect Matt Fraser and the Kootenay Ice are back in action tonight at the Memorial Cup. They'll play the Owen Sound Attack in a tiebreaker game that will determine which team advances to Friday night's semifinal game against Mississauga.
The Ice lost to Owen Sound 5-0 earlier in the tournament, but the Attack will be without two of their top forwards. Both Garrett Wilson and Joey Hishon are out with concussion-like symptoms.
Fraser, a free agent signing by the Stars, scored two goals, including the game-winner in overtime, as Kootenay beat St. John 5-4 Tuesday to stay alive in the tournament and make it to the tiebreaker.
Tonight's game is at 6 p.m. (CDT) and will be carried live on the NHL Network in the United States.
