Carter Savoie and Garrett Clegg found themselves in the top-three in scoring for the Cru through the post-season much they had all regular season. Both players were sure to be heavy contributors with just one round left between them and the Championship Round.
Spruce Grove brought some fire power of its own with Logan Ganie and Parker Saretsky leading the team in playoff points with 10 and 9 respectively.
