The CIS No. 5 Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s hockey team skated to an 8-0 home win over the Ryerson Rams Friday night at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay, Ontario. 

Lakehead’s regular season mark goes to 14-3-1-1 in OUA record (20-6-1-1 overall); while Ryerson’s record goes to 4-14 in OUA play (6-18 overall).

Lakehead netminder and last year’s OUA MVP Chris Whitley (7-1) earned his second consecutive shutout for the Wolves (and third of the season) and made a couple big stops to preserve the shutout. Brett Gibson (2-11) took the loss for the Rams; allowing 6 goals while Louis George came in relief in the third period and played very well for the Rams; making a number of excellent saves while allowing two goals.  Lakehead outshot Ryerson 51-23 on the night.  

Lakehead was led offensively by freshman defenceman Bryan Wilson who scored two goals.  Captain Andrew Brown and defending OUA Scoring Champion Dan Speer each added a goal and two assists.  Brock McPherson had a goal and an assist while single Lakehead markers came from Mark Soares, Arron Alphonso, and Richard Molenaar. 

Lakehead was 2-9 on the powerplay while the Wolves PK unit was very solid; stopping Ryerson on all five of their man advantages.

1) Lakehead: Andrew Brown
2) Lakehead: Bryan Wilson
