Brenden Fiebelkorn had all of 50 minutes and 46 seconds of WHL experience under his belt when he got his first start Sunday night.
The Tri-City Americans rookie goaltender stood his ground in net, finishing with 14 saves — and stopped a penalty shot in the second period — to help the Americans to a 9-1 victory over the Vancouver Giants before a crowd of 3,777 at Toyota Center.
“I try not to get nervous,” Fiebelkorn said. “Just take it as another game. It was a lot of fun. I had some chances and made some saves. The posts were good to me today.”
Justin Feser had three goals and an assist, and Marcus Messier and Brian Williams added two goals each as Tri-City (12-6-1-1) won its third game in three nights to move to the top of the U.S. Division with 26 points.
