A five-point night by freshman Kris Hogg led the No. 8 Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s hockey team to an 8-3 win over the Royal Military College Paladins Saturday night at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay.  The Wolves go to 14-3-1 in conference play (18-7-1 overall while RMC is now 7-12 in OUA play.

Hogg contined his hot offense picking up 2 goals and 3 assists Saturday night to go with a hat trick in Lakehead’s 8-2 win over RMC Friday night.  Assistant captain Tobias Whelan also remained hot; adding a goal and 3 assists Saturday to his goal and two assists recorded on Friday.

Brad Priestlay, Matt Maisonneuve, and Andy Zulyniak each had a goal and an assist with single tallies coming from Mike Wehrstedt and Mark Soares.  Richard Molenaar added two assists. 

Roman Srutek had a strong game for the Paladins; notching a goal and 2 assists.  Single goals came from Ian Miller and Michael Soros.    

Lakehead freshman netminder Kyle Moir took the win while RMC’s Adam Briggs was hit with the loss.  The Wolves were 2-7 on the powerplay while RMC scored all their goals with the man advantage; going 3-5.

The game was much faster and entertaining than Friday’s match; and although RMC played a much better game; Lakehead too picked up its game and the result was similar to Friday’s.  Lakehead outshot RMC 33-16 on the night.

The Molson’s Three Stars, as chosen by Bryan Wyatt of CKPR FM Radio, were:
1) Lakehead: Kris Hogg
2) Lakehead: Tobias Whelan
3) RMC: Roman Srutek

The Wolves return to action next weekend at home when they welcome former Head Coach Pete Belliveau and his Windsor Lancers to the Fort William Gardens for a key divisional series.
