New Westminster native Kyle Turris scored the game-winner at 2:42 of overtime to give the Senators a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers. Many BCHL fans will remember Turris as a 16 year old who scored 72 points in 57 games for the Burnaby Express in 2005–06 and was awarded the Bruce Allison Memorial Trophy for the Coastal Conference as rookie of the year.
The following year, he finished second in league scoring with 121 points and was named the Coastal Conference’s Most Valuable Player. Adding 26 points in 14 games, Turris led the Express to the BCHL championship, advancing to the 2006 Royal Bank Cup, Canada’s national Junior A championship. He would score a hat trick in the final game against the Yorkton Terriers of the SJHL and led the tournament in scoring as the Express won the championship. Turris passed up the chance to play with the WHL Vancouver Giants and instead opted to play for the Wisconsin Badgers.
