The Wolves trailed their first pre-season home game 1-0 after the first period and seemed to have some difficulty getting on track in front of 1,610 fans at Sudbury Arena. Sudbury outshot Kitchener 13-12 in the period.
The Wolves scored four unanswered goals in the second, with markers from Kahun, Jacob Harris, Nathan Pancel and Ray Huether, who scored on the power play. Sudbury outshot Kitchener 11-6 in the period.
Mike Davies, Kitchener's first-round pick, scored to narrow the gap to 4-2 midway through the third to make things interesting.
But Kitchener took some untimely penalties in the last minute of the game, allowing the Wolves to take full advantage.
Newly acquired Jimmy McDowell completed the scoring with a bullet from the top of the circle with less than a second remaining with the Wolves on a 5-on-3 power play.
Kitchener outshot Sudbury 16-11 in the third period, while shots on goal overall were 35-34 in favour of the Wolves.
Wolves' goaltender Taylor Dupuis put in a solid performance and went the distance in goal for the Wolves. The six-foot tall, 19-year-old netminder from New Liskeard is expected to challenge for the starting position this season and he made a number of great stops in recording the win.
The Wolves will use the weekend to rest after a busy week that saw 23 players return from Russia, a condensed two-day training camp, registration for school, two days of practice and a game.
The Wolves return to action on Friday, Sept. 13, when they face the Soo Greyhounds. Game time is 7:30 at Sudbury Arena. Tickets are $12 for all ages.
