Kodiaks’ assists came from Maximilian Fritz and Wyatt Versluis, and Jamieson Ree and Jordan Funk, respectively.

The Kodiaks outshot the Outlaws 40-24 but the Outlaws were the shooters who found the back of the net. Keeper Ben Giesbrecht stopped 10 of 15 shots and was pulled in favor of backup Griffin Baillie, who stopped all nine shots in the last 16 minutes of the game.

Wallinger was named third star, while Outlaw Bryce Pisiak was first for his three goals and David McGowan was second star for his three assists.
