On Friday night, the Wolves dropped a 6-1 contest to the Spirit. The game marked the Wolves first action at home in nearly three weeks after a hard fought six-game road trip. Despite falling short on the scoreboard, the Wolves outshot the Spirit 34-30. Jake Patterson was strong in goal for the Spirit making 33 saves.
Midway throught the first period, Michael Kantor cashed in the home team's only goal of the game. Taylor Dupuis started in net for the Wolves, but was relieved by Joel Vienneau midway through the game.
On Saturday night, the Wolves travelled down the 400 to take on the "hottest team in the OHL." The Pack kept it close, but in the end, it was the Barrie Colts that came out on top of the 2-1 score. It was the Colts' seventh consecutive victory.
The Wolves' goal was scored by Nathan Pancel on a power play in the first period. Vienneau was back in net for the team, and stopped 37 of the 39 shots he faced.
Sudbury's record now sits at 5-5.
The Wolves will now prepare for their eighth road game of the season on Wednesday night when they travel to the Soo to play the Greyhounds. They are back in action at home on Oct. 19 at 7:35 p.m. when they host the Belleville Bulls and Oct. 21 against the London Knights at 2:05 p.m.
In additional news, the Sudbury Wolves released 18-year-old rearguard Tyler Prong last week. The Sarnia area native played in just one game during the regular season. The 6-3 right-shot defenceman was returned to the Sarnia Legionnaires of the GOJHL. Prong will remain on the Wolves’ protected list and will remain eligible to be called up by the Wolves as an affiliate. The Wolves' active roster is now down to 23 players.
