By Tony Saxon, Guelph Today

HALIFAX — The Guelph Storm got off to a big start at the 2019 Memorial Cup Saturday afternoon.

The Storm got a first period hat trick from Alexey Toropchenko and rode that Russian wave to a 5-2 victory over the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

Rouyn-Noranda, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League champion, was the top-ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League at the end of the regular season.

“Every time I thought we were in a little bit of trouble we found a way to get a goal. It was a good win,” said Storm coach George Burnett.
