Game #2 – Mississauga Reps – (7 – 2 Loss for Quinte)
Brennan Bush was in net for the Red Devils and took the loss but had very little defensive zone coverage support by his defensive pairings or any back pressure in the “D” zone by the forward lines. The game was very much in control for the Red Devils in the first period then the “the wheels fell off” and once again the Devils just stopped playing as the Reps scored 5 goals before Quinte realized they were still in a hockey game. The CrossFit Belleville Bantams’ goals were scored by Michael Andrews and Daniel Panetta and the loan assist was by Michael Andrews.
Game #3 – Boston Minuteman – (5 -2 Win for Quinte)
Ethan Taylor was in net for the Red Devils and played extremely well to earn his second win in a row in the Showcase. The Red Devils played better than the previous night and the message of #TeamDefence seemed to have been absorbed by the players as they limited the Minuteman to shots from the perimeter and gave up only a handful of quality scoring opportunities. The Quinte goals were scored by Michael Andrews, Daniel Panetta(2), Jake Campbell and Emmet Pierce while assists went to Derrick Vos(2), Daniel Panetta(2), Dalton Bancroft(2) and Ryan Loiselle.
Game #4 – Mid-Fairfield Rangers – (4 -1 Loss for Quinte)
Brennan Bush was in net and once again fell victim to a lack lustre effort by his teammates in front of him. The Red Devils were lethargic, lazy and effortless from the opening faceoff to the final buzzer with the only real excitement coming from the Rangers taunting parents. The loan goal was scored by Daniel Panetta while assists went to Conner Kennedy and Carden Guerin.
Game #5 – Detroit Compuware – (3 -1 Loss for Quinte)
Ethan Taylor was in net for his only loss of the Showcase and wasn’t beaten during 5 on 5 hockey. The loan Quinte goal was scored by Bailey Matthews and assists went to Jake Campbell and Cameron Supryka.

Barrie Colts (2 –1 Loss)
The next day saw the ETA leading Barrie Colts come to Quinte to face off against a team that would still be short a player as Bailey Matthews was serving his second of a two game suspension. Barrie would open the scoring half way through the first period as Ethan Taylor was beat on his glove side. Quinte would answer back in the second period as Dalton Bancroft would blast one into the back of the net on a sweet passing play by Emmett Pierce and Cameron Supryka.

Oshawa Generals (2-1 Loss)
During a mid-week clash with the Generals the Red Devils came out and kept the shots to a minimum but unfortunately it was a minimum at both ends and the offensive opportunities were scarce. In the opening period there wasn’t any scoring and each team barely had a handful of shots. The second period the Generals would open the scoring just 6 minutes in on a nice passing play as they capitalized on the Devils weak defensive zone coverage. Then the Generals would take a 2-0 lead just 90 seconds into the third period and would put a strangle hold on the Red Devils who hadn’t put up much of an effort in any of the three zones. Daniel Panetta would score with 2:36 remaining as the Devils finally had some net presence and offensive zone pressure . Ethan Taylor would take the loss.
