Henrik Samuelsson led Edmonton with two goals and three assists.

Cody Corbett, Tyler Robertson, Edgars Kulda and Mitch Moroz also scored for the Western Hockey League champions. Edmonton goaltender Tristan Jarry makes 32 saves in the win.

Zack Mitchell, Robby Fabbri and Stephen Pierof replied for the Ontario Hockey League's Storm, whose only loss of the tournament was the final. Guelph's Justin Nichols stopped 39 of 45 shots in the loss.

This was Edmonton's second Memorial Cup appearance in three years. The Oil Kings lost in a tiebreaker game two years ago.
