SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers prospect G David Shantz and his Peterborough Petes squad will play the Vancouver Giants in an elimination game on Thursday, May 25 at 3 p.m. Both clubs have posted 1-2 marks so far in the Memorial Cup. The winner of Thursday's contest will move on to play in the Memorial Cup semifinals on Friday, May 26.

The Petes dropped a 3-2 decision to the Giants on Tuesday night, with Shantz making 33 saves in the losing effort. Shantz has appeared in all three games for Peterborough during the Memorial Cup going 1-2 with a 3.00 GAA and a .925 save percentage.
