Signed Swift Current Broncos prospect Samuel Schofield had himself a stellar individual outing with Team Northwest Territories' men's hockey team at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer. 

Though his team struggled to a 3-3 overall record, earning 11th place out of 12 teams, Schofield stuffed the stat sheet.

The product of Yellowknife, serving as the Team NT captain, rattled off an average of two points-per-game, for an even dozen (6 G, 6 A).

The 12-point effort currently pegs him in sole possession of fifth in tournament scoring, though action still remains for the top eight teams.
