Wolves Blanked by Hounds
The Sudbury Wolves took on the Soo Greyhounds at the Essar Centre on a snowy Wednesday evening. The CHL’s first place team proved to be more than the Wolves could handle as the Hounds shutout the Wolves with a 4-0 final.
In a fast-paced first period between the two Northern rivals, neither team was able to find the back of the net through the frame. Jake McGrath played a strong period, stopping all 11 shots the Hounds sent his way. Both teams went 0-1 on the power play with each team called for a hooking penalty.
Sudbury native Brett Jacklin broke the deadlock with less than five minutes remaining in the second period to give the Greyhounds a 1-0 lead. Jacklin’s goal came off a great passing play with Morgan Frost and Jacob LeGuerrier. With time winding down, Taylor Raddysh scored a power play goal to give the Greyhounds a 2-0 lead heading into the intermission. Shots in the period were close with the Greyhounds leading 8-7.
Five minutes into the third period, Morgan Frost brought the puck out from behind the net beating McGrath to make it 3-0. The goal from Frost was his third point of the game after he picked up assists on both of the Greyhounds second period goals. After Cole Candella was on the receiving end of a high-stick, Emmett Serensits came to his defense dropping the gloves with Tim Gettinger. Jordan Sambrook added another goal for the Greyhounds to end the game with a 4-0 final, with shots on goal 30-22 in favour of the Greyhounds.
