Giants Fall In Game 7 Overtime, Raiders Capture the Ed Chynoweth Cup

Lucas Chudleigh

One of the most memorable, historic seasons of Vancouver Giants hockey ended in heartbreak at 18:25 of overtime in Game 7 Monday night in Prince Albert, SK. Dante Hannoun’s goal late in the first overtime period lifted the Prince Albert Raiders to a 2019 championship victory and a berth in the 2019 Memorial Cup Tournament. Milos Roman scored both goals for the Vancouver Giants while Noah Gregor had the first two goals of the game for Prince Albert and assisted on the overtime winner. David Tendeck was terrific once again in goal for the Giants making 37 saves while Ian Scott stopped 24 of the 26 shots he faced for Prince Albert. Ian Scott was named 2019 WHL Playoff MVP for his efforts.
