Vanderbeck posted three goals and two assists in the opening two games of the BCHL Final in Wenatchee. In Game 1, the 20-year-old from Monument, Colo. scored the second goal of the game for the Wild in their 4-0 win over the Prince George Spruce Kings. He followed that up in Game 2 with a four-point effort, scoring two goals, including the game winner, and adding two assists in Wenatchee’s 4-2 win over Prince George.
This weekend’s performance brings Vanderbeck’s playoff point total to 23 (10G, 13A), good enough to tie him for second-most in the league. Wenatchee currently leads the Fred Page Cup Final 2-0 heading to Prince George for Games 3 and 4 starting tonight at 7 p.m.
