The Pack reel in the Steelheads on Marc Staal's number retirement night

Wolves rise to 19-21-4-2 with shutout win against the Mississauga Steelheads

It was a special night at the Sudbury Community Arena with former Sudbury Wolves Captain (2003-2007) Marc Staal having his No. 14 jersey retired at the
beginning of the game against the Mississauga Steelheads.

The jersey retirement seemed to be a motivating factor for the hometown Wolves, who scored early and scored often. The Wolves prevailed in the shots department 24-21 and 4-0 on the scoresheet, with Nate Krawchuk getting the shutout for Sudbury.

The first goal of the game came off the stick of Marc Boudreau at 12:11 into the first period, giving the Wolves a 1-0 lead. Just over a minute later Evan Konyen
gave Sudbury some insurance with a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes.

The second period proved to be uneventful until 16:00 minutes into the middle frame, when Ethan Larmand potted his 11th of the season to give the Wolves a 3-0
lead. Just under a minute and a half later Ethan Larmand lit the lamp again for his second of the game to seal a 4-0 win over the visiting Mississauga Steelheads,
sending the Wolves' faithful, and Marc Staal, home happy.

With the win, the Sudbury Wolves improve to 19-21-4-2 remaining in 8th place in the Ontario Hockey League's Eastern Conference.
The Wolves prepare for a Sunday afternoon tilt on February 5th against the Barrie Colts before four days off until their next game, February 10th at home against the Sarnia Sting
