High-Flying Wolves Host Colts & Storm this Weekend
(Sudbury, ON) Wolves Hockey action continues this weekend as the Wolves wrap up a six game homestand as they host the Barrie Colts on Friday night and Guelph Storm Saturday afternoon.
The Wolves are riding a nine-game undefeated streak at home as they are coming off a successful weekend with a 3-2 win over the Peterborough Petes and 7-0 victory over the Mississauga Steelheads. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen picked up both wins in net for the Wolves, including the shut-out.
“I like to play here because there is a good team in front of me and they find ways to win,” said Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, Sudbury Wolves Goaltender and Buffalo Sabres Prospect. “Every game different players are scoring and so we are difficult to play against on any given night.”
