The Sudbury Wolves’ busy January schedule is almost coming to close. The team is on the road for two games this week before returning to Sudbury Arena for a Friday night tilt against the Oshawa Generals.

Unfortunately, under current pandemic restrictions, spectators can’t watch the game in person.

“The Wolves are coming off a very successful Eastern conference road swing where they picked up five of six possible points,” the team said in a news release.

The Pack beat the Peterborough Petes 3-1 and the highly ranked Kingston Frontenacs 8-4 before falling to the Ottawa 67s 5-4 in a shootout. First-year forward David Goyette had a great weekend, including a four-goal performance over the Frontenacs last Friday. He picked up a total of seven points on the weekend and now sits tied for first in points among OHL rookies, with 29 on the season. 

Goyette also leads the Wolves offensively with 12 goals and 17 assists so far, good enough to earn OHL Player of the Week honours. 

Kocha Delic also had a breakout weekend, picking up seven points over the three-game stretch. He now leads the Wolves in plus-minus with 10. 

Four rookies lead the Wolves offensively including Goyette (12G, 17A) and Delic (10G, 12 A), as well as Evan Konyen (7G, 17 A) and Quentin Musty  (8G, 13A). Goaltender Mitchell Weeks remains strong between the posts, earning OHL Goaltender of the Week honours. In just over three outings, Weeks made 109 saves and played to a 2-0-0-1 record with a  2.92 goals-against average and .924 save percentage. 

Tonight, Jan. 18, the Wolves face the Colts in Barrie. This is a rescheduled match-up from December. The team then makes a stop in North Bay on Jan. 20 to take on the Battalion.
