Aldergrove Kodiaks' Scott McHaffie (#97) fires a shot at Abbotsford Pilots' goal in junior hockey action Wednesday

Wolf Pack outruns Kodiaks

Aldergrove Kodiaks remain stuck at 12 points and second place in the Harold Brittain conference, after losing 4-3 to the Wolf Pack

The Aldergrove Kodiaks remain stuck at 12 points and second place in the Harold Brittain conference, after losing 4-3 to the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Saturday, Oct. 12.

The Kodiaks more than doubled the Wolf Pack in shots on goal, 41-19, but just as the Abbotsford Pilots did on Wednesday in Aldergrove, their goal keeper deflected all but three shots. Wolf Pack keeper Braden Krogfuss earned the night’s first star for his efforts.

Kodiaks’ Spencer McHaffie earned second star for his goal and an assist.

The Wolf Pack led 2-0 at the end of the first, including a power play goal.

The Kodiaks notched two in the second period, first by Calen Whitworth at 0:44, assisted by brothers Scott and Spencer McHaffie, and another by Spencer McHaffie at 15:05, assisted by Garrett Forster. However, the Wolf Pack scored a short handed goal at 1:32 to bring the second period to a close with the Wolf Pack up 3-2.

The Wolf Pack scored their last goal at 4:39 in the third and Kodiaks’ Kenny Prato scored on a power play at 17:39, assisted by Stephen Ryan, to end the game a 4-3 win for the Wolf Pack.

Kodiaks’ Stephen Ryan remains the league’s scoring leader with 16 points after 10 games, for nine goals and seven assists. Kodiaks’ keeper Tate Spraxton also is the league’s goalie leader with a GAA of 1.88 in three games.

The Kodiaks are, however, firmly in second place in the conference, with 12 points after 10 games (6-4-0-0), three points behind the Abbotsford Pilots. Ridge Meadows Flames, Mission City Outlaws and Port Moody Panthers follow at nine, six and five points, respectively.

Over at the Tom Shaw conference, Delta and Grandview lead at 15 points each, followed by Richmond at 13, North Vancouver at nine and North Delta at seven.

The Kodiaks host the North Delta Devils at Aldergrove Arena on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 7:15 p.m., then travel to play Richmond Sockeyes the next night. The Kodiaks’ next home game will be Wednesday, Oct. 23, 7:15 p.m. versus the Grandview Steelers.
