Blizzard PP Propels OCN To Big Win Over Dauphin

The OCN Blizzard extended their season-opening win streak to three last night with a big win at home over the Dauphin Kings.

 

The 7-3 final was powered in large part by the OCN powerplay, which contributed a goal in every period.

 

The Blizzard got the ball rolling early in the first with Thomas Hansell's first goal of the season, and they never looked back. Third year forward and The Pas native Lantz Hiebert scored 10 minutes after Hansell, and OCN took a 2-1 lead into the second period.

 

The second frame saw the Bilzzard add two more and head into the third period up 4-2, thanks to goals from Daylon Campbell and Wyatt Riendeau. Apetagon, BVartley and Roch all added markers in the final period to seal the victory for OCN.

 

Riese Gaber scored a pair for Dauphin, while Wilson Northey added the lone Kings' goal in the third.

 

Dorian Laganiere picked up his third win of the year for the Blizzard, stopping 37 of 40 shots.

 

The Blizzard now head out on the road for their weekend games, visiting Selkirk on Friday and Saturday, before heading to Steinbach for a Sunday evening affair with the Pistons.

OCN Blizzard Open Season With Win Streak

The MJHL season kicked off over the weekend, and the OCN Blizzard are one of four teams sitting atop of the league with a perfect 2-0 record.

 

The Blizzard opened up at home Friday evening against the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, and survived a late comeback to win 2-1. Tony Apetagon opened up the scoring for OCN in the first period, and Daniel Chartrant netted the game-winner in the second period. Macklin McPhee scored early in the third period for the Wolverines. The game featured two members of the 2016/2017 Norman Northstars, Hunter Halcrow and Ethan Stuckless.

 

Saturday saw the Blizzard welcome the Swan Valley Stampeders to the GLMC, and once again OCN was able to skate away with a narrow one goal victory. The Stampeders got out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to Shane Roulette. Tony Apetagon and Daniel Chartrand answered back with their second goals of the season in the second period for Blizzard, who took a 2-1 lead into the third. Roulette potted his second of the game, and the season, early in the third to tie up the game and force overtime. Lantz Hiebert scored the game winner three minutes into the extra frame to push the Blizzard to a 2-0 record.

 

Newcomer Dorian Laganiere picked up a win in both games over the weekend for the Blizzard. He currently has a 1.46 GAA. The 5’11”, 181lbs goalie from Granby, Quebec split the 2016/2017 season with four different teams, the Sherwood Park Crusaders (AJHL), Revelstoke Grizzlies (KIJHL), Golden Rockets (KIJHL) and Nelson Leafs (KIJHL).

 

The Blizzard will look to continue their perfect start to the season tomorrow as they welcome the Dauphin Kings to the GLMC. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00pm.   

Bombers Drop Weekend Games

The Flin Flon Bombers season continued over the weekend, where they dropped a pair of weekend games.

 

The Bombers played the Nipawin Hawks at the Whitney Forum on Friday evening, falling 5-2. Logan Casavant potted his second of the season to open up the scoring in the first period for the Hawks. Chrystopher Collin responded for Flin Flon in the second, but Nipawin answred his goal with Jake Tremblay’s first of the season and the Hawks never looked back. They’d add three more in the third, including one into the empty net, to seal the victory.

 

Sunday saw the Bombers come away with another loss, this time in the shootout at the hands of the Weyburn Red Wings. The Bombers got out to an early 2-0 lead thanks to the first goals of the season from both Ben Lanfermann and Caleb Moretz. The Red Wings would score in the second and third periods to send the games to overtime. Overtime solved nothing, and Cole Woodliffe and Landon Walters, both of the Weyburn Red Wings, were the only ones to score in the shootout to give Weyburn the win.

 

The Flin Flon Bombers currently sit third in the Sherwood Division, three points back of the SJHL-leading Melfort Mustangs. They next play tonight, as they visit the Notre Dame Hounds. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:45pm ST.

Wheaties Open Season Against Regina

The Brandon Wheat Kings opened up the 2017/2018 WHL season over the weekend with a pair of games against the Regina Pats.

 

Friday evenings’ game, which was played at Westman Place in Brandon, saw the Wheaties stomp the Pats 8-1. Third year player Ty Lewis lead the way for Brandon with two goals and three assists. Regina alternate captain Matt Bradley had the loan goal for the Pats.

 

Saturday saw the two teams face off for the second time, this time at the Brandt Centre in Regina. The Pats came out victories, edging the Wheaties 4-3. George King, who spent most of the 2016/2017 season with the OCN Blizzard, opened up the scoring half way through the first with his first in the WHL for the Pats. Regina took a 2-0 lead into the second period, before Stelio Mattheos, a third round pick by Carolina in the most recent NHL draft, answered back with two of his own for the Wheat Kings. Regina would add two more goals, one each in the second and third, to seal the victory.

 

The Wheat Kings will welcome both Red Deer and Swift Current on Friday and Saturday.
