Junior hockey: New players help Wolves earn win over Warriors

LACONIA — The New England Wolves continued their playoff pursuit with a decisive 4-2 win over the Valley Jr. Warriors this past Sunday.
Sunday's 4-2 victory was paced by the newly formed forward line of Phillip Schultz (Lunenburg, Mass.), Jared Wood (Gorham, Maine) and Ryan Padden (Fort Peck, Mont.). The trio accounted for 3 out of the team's 4 goals, including two by Padden. Both Wood and Padden were acquired over the Holiday break to help bolster the team's offensive depth. "Schultz is one of the hardest working players on the ice, and his persistence compliments Wood and Padden's offensive abilities," said assistant coach Mike Potenza. Wolves netminder Zach Skop stopped 31 of the 33 shots he faced in nets. Defenseman Blake Babineau rounded out the scoring, recording the empty netter with 25 seconds remaining.
The win was the Wolves' 18th regulation victory on the season, and with 6 regular season games to go they are firmly in the MJHL playoff picture.
The Wolves return to action next weekend (February 7 and 8) with games against the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs and the Boston Bandits. The February 7 game against the rival Monarchs, will be the last regular season home game for the Wolves. So far on the season, all Wolves/ Monarchs games have been decided by 2 goals or less, with the previous Wolves/ Monarchs game played at the Laconia Ice Arena having to be decided by a shootout. The game is slated for a 2:15 p.m. puck drop. All fans are encouraged to wear their Lakes Region Lakers home jerseys. The Broadway North Wolves Dancers will provide intermission entertainment, and all entrants will receive complimentary Wolves Fangs upon entering.
"The Wolves would like to thank all their fans, volunteers, rink staff, host families and supporters for an outstanding inaugural season of Junior Hockey in the Lakes Region. We look forward to many more years of representing this amazing community. Thank you." – GM/ Head Coach Andrew Trimble
