Four goals from Spencer Unger helped the Aldergrove Kodiaks return to the win column.

The Kodiaks pumped home eight goals in an 8-1 rout of the visiting Mission City Outlaws on Jan. 8 at the Aldergrove Arena.

The junior B hockey club has seen their 21-game point streak — which featured 18  victories and stretched back to October — come to an end the game before, a 2-1 setback to the Richmond Sockeyes.

But against the Outlaws, Aldergrove used a lethal power play, striking four times with the man advantage.

The Kodiaks scored twice late in the first period and added four more in the second.

Mission City broke Tate Sproxton’s shutout bid early in the third before Adam Callegari and Unger rounded out the scoring.

Sproxton finished with 32 saves.

The other Aldergrove goals came from Elvis Jansons, Spencer McHaffie and Stephen Ryan. Ryan also had three assists to finish with a four-point night, and 64 points in 33 games.

With the win, Aldergrove (25-5-1-2, 53 points) stretched their lead to 11 points over the second-place Abbotsford Pilots (19-9-2-2, 42 points) for top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference. The two rivals square off on Jan. 10 at MSA Arena in Abbotsford.

All-star rosters announced for PJHL

Six Langley hockey players — including one who leads the league in scoring — will be suiting up in the Pacific Junior Hockey League’s all-star game next week.

The game pits the Harold Brittain Conference’s top players against their counterparts from the Tom Shaw Conference. It will be played on Jan. 13 (Monday) at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena.

Headlining the all-stars will be Stephen Ryan, who leads the league with 31 goals and 64 points in 33 games.

Ryan is one of three Langley players on the league-leading Aldergrove Kodiaks, who sit atop the Harold Brittain Conference with a record of 25-5-1-2 and 53 points.

He is joined on the all-star roster from the Kodiaks by two other Langley players, forward Adam Callegari and defenceman Joshua Cronin.

Callegari had 18 goals and 49 points on the season while Cronin has four goals and 23 points.

The other members of the Kodiaks to get all-star nods were twin brothers Spencer and Scott McHaffie — who each have 28 points on the season — and defenceman Kodi Schwartz.

Two other Langley players will be on the Harold Brittain Conference side:

Abbotsford Pilots forward Braeden Monk and Ridge Meadows Flames defenceman Nicholas Coltura.

Monk is second on the Pilots with 12 goals and 40 points.

Coltura has a goal and 14 points.

And playing for the Tom Shaw Conference will be forward Ayden MacDonald.

MacDonald is third in team scoring for the Richmond Sockeyes with 20 goals and 31 points.
