The Sudbury Wolves have stumbled of late and have dropped their last four games, picking up just a single point in an overtime loss to the Hamilton Bulldogs.

The team's losing skid hit a miserable low on Sunday, as the Oshawa Generals pummelled the Pack to the tune of 7-0. Despite their recent struggles, the Wolves remain atop the OHL's Central Division and will take on a pair of division rivals this weekend at the Sudbury Arena.

On Friday night, the Wolves host the Barrie Colts at 7:05 p.m., before wrapping up the weekend on Sunday afternoon against the Mississauga Steelheads at 2:05 p.m.

The Colts trail the Wolves by five points in the Central Division, but have five games in-hand on the division-leading Wolves. Barrie's offense is led by both Carolina Hurricanes first-round pick Ryan Suzuki, and 2020 NHL draft-eligible centreman Tyson Foerster.

Friday’s game is sponsored by CTV who will be on hand with prizes and giveaways for lucky fans. One lucky fan will also win free coffee for a year courtesy of Tim Hortons in the second intermission. 

Take advantage of the TGIF 3-2-1 offers with $3 tall boys, $2 hot dogs and $1 popcorn between 6 and 6:30 p.m.

On Sunday the Mississauga Steelheads roll into town, mired in their own struggles with just three wins in their last 10 games. The Steelheads sit fourth in the Central Division and 14 points back of the Wolves.

Sunday’s game is sponsored by Glencore. Fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations to the game in support of the Sudbury Food Bank. 

Fans who donate will have the chance to win great prizes courtesy of Glencore and the Sudbury Wolves. It’s Junior Wolves Sunday, so don’t forget your skates to join the team for a post-game skate.
