Kodiaks back on win streak

Aldergrove Kodiaks rebounded on the weekend with a pair of away wins over Mission City Outlaws and Grandview Steelers

After losing their home game last week to the Richmond Sockeyes the Aldergrove Kodiaks rebounded on the weekend with a pair of away wins over Mission City Outlaws and Grandview Steelers.

The results leave the Kodiaks at the top of the Pacific Junior Hockey League with 28 points after 18 games, and the most wins (14) and fewest losses (4).

On Sunday the Kodiaks defeated the Steelers 2-0 at Burnaby Winter Club. The Kodiaks outshot the Steelers in every period for a game total of 43-26 but the game was scoreless until the third period.

Scoring for the Kodiaks was Eric Callegari at 21 seconds into the third, assisted by Elijah Vilio and Quinncy Leroux, followed by a shorthanded empty-netter in the dying minutes of the game, again scored by Callegari with help from Kyle Bosko.

The Kodiaks were unable to score on their six power plays, and the Steelers were empty-handed on all four of theirs.

Callegari was the game’s first star, Steelers keeper Matteo Paler-Chow was second and Kodiaks keeper Caleb Ziemann was third star.

The Kodiaks also outshot the Mission Outlaws on Friday night at Mission Leisure Centre, in a 3-2 overtime win for the Kodiaks.

The first two periods were scoreless, and Outlaws Baylee Wright opened the scoring in the third. The Kodiaks followed that with a pair of goals from Jacob De Waal and Eric Callegari (on a power play), with assists from Cameron Davitt, and Elijah Vilio and Davitt.

However, Outlaws Wright evened it up on their power play to take the game into overtime.

Callegari scored on another power play in the first overtime for the win, with assistance from Davitt and Vilio.

The Kodiaks had nine power plays to the Outlaws six.

Outlaws keeper Matthew Trulsen and Wright were the game’s first and second stars, and Callegari was third star.

The Kodiaks host the Outlaws at Aldergrove Arena on Nov. 9, 7:15 p.m., and the Port Moody Panthers the following Wednesday, Nov. 16. Their away game this coming week is Tuesday, Nov. 15 at the Delta Ice Hawks.
