Nathan Pancel had gone nine games without a goal, but he picked a good time to snap out of his slump.
Panel scored twice, including the game winner as the Wolves beat the Colts in Barrie Thursday night with a final score of 7-5.
The two goals by Pancel gives him 39 on the season.
"I have been getting my chances, but I haven't been able to finish, but tonight they were going in for me," said Pancel after the game.
"It feels awesome that I was able to get the game winner, because I feel we deserved to win that one."
With the win, the Wolves improve their record to 27-13-3-5 and move 11points ahead of Barrie in the Central Division standings.
"It was a tough game and it wasn't easy to get the win" said Head coach Paul Fixter.
"We had to battle for everything we got. It was another great hockey game and everyone had to play great and in the end we leave with the two points."
Fixter said he was as happy as anyone to see Pancel snap out of his scoring slump.
"I am happy for him because he has been snake-bitten of late," said Fixter. "He's been working hard and he's got a bigger smile tonight, as he should."
Along with Pancel, Nick Baptiste had a strong night. He scored twice and now has 30 goals on the season. He added two assists and takes over the team points lead with 63.
