Wolves complete great pre-season with three weekend wins

The Sudbury Wolves wrapped up a terrific pre-season winning all three games over the weekend.

The Sudbury Wolves wrapped up a terrific pre-season winning all three games over the weekend.

The Wolves appear to be in fine form as they prepare for their Ontario Hockey League opener Friday night at home against the high-powered Ottawa 67s after beating the Sault Greyhounds 2-1 in Sault Ste. Marie Sunday night.

The Wolves also beat the St. Mike's Majors 3-1 on home ice Saturday night and started out the weekend with a 7-3 win over the Greyhounds Friday night at the Sudbury Arena.

The Wolves ended up their exhibition season with an impressive 5-1 mark.

Overage forward Rafal Martynowski led the Wolves Sunday night in Sault Ste. Marie scoring both goals in the winning effort.

The Wolves played a very strong game, outshooting the Greyhounds 29-19.

Kevin Beech was solid in the Wolves net, stopping 18 shots for the victory.

The Wolves still have 25 players left in camp and head coach and general manager Mike Foligno has said he's going to have to make two or three more cuts this week before the regular season opener Friday night.

The Wolves started off the weekend with a convincing 7-3 win over the Greyhounds.

Luke Dubbin, Marc Staal, Bobby Chaumont, Nick Foligno, Johnathan D'Aversa, Adam McQuaid and Ben Pouiot all had single markers for the Wolves in a winning effort.

On Saturday evening, the Wolves trailed 1-0 early in the game, but rallied with single markers from Foligno, Chanse Fitzpatrick and Mike Mills to earn the hard-fought victory.

The weekend also saw the return of overage netminder Patrick Ehelechner, who turned in a strong effort in Friday's contest, stopping 30 shots. Ehelechner returned to Sudbury after attending a rookie camp in San Jose. The Sharks drafted the talented German puckstopper in the 2003 NHL entry draft.

After opening the season Friday night against Ottawa, the Wolves will remain at home to take on the Erie Otters Sunday afternoon.

They then hit the road the following weekend.
