GM Ice Dogs trample North Stars 7-2
DRYDEN, Ont. – The Dryden GM Ice Dogs scored early and late as part of a five-goal first period as they went on to trample the Thunder Bay North Stars 7-2 in Superior International Junior Hockey League play Saturday at Memorial Arena.
The SIJHL-leading GM Ice Dogs wasted little time in taking the lead as Braedyn Aubin began the scoring just 11 seconds after the opening face-off to send the home side on their way.
Special teams allowed Dryden to go up 2-0 five minutes later as Braeden Allkins collected his 30th goal of the season during a man advantage opportunity.
Kris Hamlin then struck shorthanded at 10:55 to make it 3-0.
The GM Ice Dogs kept coming and tacked on two more before the period was complete compliments of Jacen Bracko at even strength and Allkins’ second power play marker of the frame.
Thunder Bay did get one back in the second stanza as Jesse Talakoski connected while his team was up a man at 13:44.
Bracko’s second of the night and 32nd overall added to the Dryden cushion in the third while Aubin also added another during a power play to extend the margin.
Talakoski notched one more for the North Stars in the late going, during a man advantage, to round out the scoring.
Shots on goal in the contest favoured Dryden 35-34 with Patrick Zubick picking up the win and Jordan Elliott the loss.
