What an impressive week from second year Steelers forward, Joel Purdom, who left it all out on the ice in the Steelers pursuit to the playoffs. Purdom helped the Steelers earn a point in a overtime loss where he scored both goals for his club. Two nights later against the Flyers, the Winnipeg native scored 2 goals and 1 assist in a 5-3 win over Winkler before he kept his scoring streak rolling against the Kings, adding 1 goal and 1 assist in a loss that would end the Steelers 2023-24 season.
