The New England Wolves, battling for 1st place in the tightly contested Francis Division of the MJHL, met the league leading Walpole Express at the Laconia Ice Arena on Saturday and Sunday for two highly competitive matches.
The 2-0 win on Saturday night was a total team effort that featured outstanding performances by 2 players in particular. Defenseman Hunter Craig (Limerick, Maine) recorded both power play goals and netminder Zach Skop stopped 40 shots for the shutout. In addition to the on ice action, a laser light show (provided by the Laconia Ice Arena staff), as well as Santa and the Broadway North Wolves Dancers, provided the fans with entertainment. Center, Kevin Morello, also had 2 assists in the effort.
On Friday the 5th, 10 members of the Wolves as well as members of the Laconia Ice Arena rink staff volunteered to unload Christmas trees for the annual Gilford Rotary Christmas Tree sale located at the Cinemas parking lot in Gilford. "It is our ambition to not only develop these young men as hockey players, but to also support, set a good example and give back." said general manager and head coach Andrew Trimble. "We had kids today from as far away as Moscow, Russia and Colorado Springs, Colorado and even my two year old daughter unloading these trees for their local community."
Beginning this upcoming Friday, the Wolves will play 4 games this weekend at the annual Hudson Showcase, in Hudson, N.H. Congrats to Wolves Forward Dillon Smith (Madison, N.H.) as he was awarded Honorable Mention by the MJHL for his performance during the weekend of Dec, 1.
The Wolves Staff would like to thank Justin Dockham of Melcher & Prescott for his sponsorship and support.
