The Prince Albert Raiders (8-6-3) ran into some serious penalty trouble in the third period at the Moda Center against the Portland Winterhawks (14-3).

In just the third period alone, the Winterhawks scored four power play goals, all of them with a two-man advantage.

The Raiders were basically shorthanded for the entire third period, surrendering 10 total power plays in the final frame alone. Two of those were unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, one against head coach Marc Habscheid and another against forward D-Jay Jerome after taking a hooking penalty.

It was a manageable 2-1 game heading into the third period before the P.A. penalty box parade. Jordy Stallard scored in the first period, extending his point scoring streak to 11 games (11 goals, nine assists in that span).

Team Canada Rhett

Raiders defenceman Rhett Rhinehart and the rest of Team Canada Red made it to the finals of the 2017 Under-17 World Hockey Challenge, falling to the States 6-4 in the gold medal game Saturday night in Dawson Creek, B.C. Rhinehart finished the tournament with an assist in six tournament games.

He joined the Raiders in Portland on Sunday but got the night off.

Team White, featuring former Prince Albert Mintos Braden Schneider and Logan Barlage, finished the tournament in fourth place. They fell to the Czech Republic 2-1.

Moving on

The Raiders will be back at it on Tuesday in Seattle to take on the Thunderbirds. They’ll carry on with their American Division road trip on Wednesday against the Everett Silvertips, Friday against the Tri-City Americans and Saturday against the Spokane Chiefs.
