The Sudbury Wolves were able to capture three of the six available points on the weekend, facing off against the Barrie Colts, the Ottawa 67's and the Brampton Battalion.

On Friday night, the Wolves fought hard against the red-hot Barrie Colts, coming out with a 6-4 win. Goals were scored by Nick Baptiste, Brody Silk, Nathan Pancel, Dominik Kahun, Danny Desrochers and Charlie Dodero.

Joel Vienneau turned aside 20 of the 24 shots he faced, while his Barrie counterpart Mathias Niederberger made 39 saves on the evening.

On Saturday, the Ottawa 67's visited the Sudbury Arena. The game was pushed to a shoot-out with the 67's taking the game 4-3. Michael Kantor led the Wolves with two goals while Pancel chipped in for the third. Vienneau was back in net for the Pack, making 35 saves, while Ottawa's Keegan Wilson rejected 41 shots.

The Wolves road woes continued on Sunday as the Pack dropped a 4-2 decision to the Brampton Battalion, marking the team's fifth straight loss as visitors. Sunday's goals were scored by Ray Huether and Brody Silk. Taylor Dupuis took the loss in net, with 41 shots on net. The Wolves marked 26 shots.

The injury bug is beginning to bite the Wolves of late with goaltender Vienneau being unable to make the trip to Brampton. Vienneau joins defenceman Mackenzie Braid and forward Jake Harris, who both remain on the sidelines with long-term injuries. The Wolves called-up 16-year-old goaltender Michael Muzyka from the Sudbury Nickel Barons Jr. A team to back-up Dupuis for Sunday's game. Muzyka was a sixth-round draft selection of the Wolves in the 2012 OHL Draft.

The Wolves will now prepare for a two-game road trip to the southwest corner of the province when they travel to London on Friday for a rematch with the defending champion London Knights. The Knights defeated the Wolves in Sudbury earlier this season by a score of 4-2.  The Wolves will close out the road trip with a visit to Sarnia on Sunday.

The Pack returns home Nov. 14 when they face-off against the Brampton Battalion.
