The Sudbury Wolves play their last home game of the regular season this Friday night on St. Patrick’s day, March 17th! The Wolves continue their play-off positioning battle with a home and home series against the North Bay Battalion this Thursday and Friday night. Thursday March 16th, the Wolves take on the Battalion at the North Bay Memorial Gardens as the two teams battle for their play-off lives. They return to the confines of the Sudbury Community Arena Friday night in what could be a pivotal game for both teams.
The Battalion are led upfront by veteran forwards Brett McKenzie and Steve Harland, who lead the team with 65 points and 63 points respectively as they head into the final week of the regular season. The Battalion line-up also features Greater Sudbury natives, Brad Chenier and Daniel Walker who are completing their first season in the OHL. For the first time in years, the Highway 17 East rivalry has meaning, and the stakes are high!
Friday’s game is sponsored by Cambrian College. Don’t miss the Cambrian College Sock Toss in the second intermission where one lucky fan will win a Go Pro. Visit the Cambrian College booth in the lower lobby to pick up your pair of socks.
Friday’s pre-game ceremony will feature the time honoured tradition of recognizing the team’s 3-overage players as they graduate from the OHL. Patrick Sanvido, CJ Yakimowicz and Aiden Jamieson haven’t played a long career in a Wolves uniform, but they have had a wonderful impact on the team and the community and team is proud to call each of them future alumni.
The Team will take to the road for their final 2 games of the regular season in St. Catherines at the Meridian Centre vs. the Niagara IceDogs Saturday night and then again Tuesday March 21st at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga for the rescheduled February 26th game.
