The goal scoring floodgates opened on the weekend for the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks, and it appears nobody closed them as of Tuesday night.
After a weekend in which they scored 11 goals over two games, the Junior C’s followed it up with that amount in one game with a 11-1 road victory over the County of Grande Prairie JDA Kings.
Just 34 seconds in, Tanner Bahm opened the scoring, his first of two on the night assisted by Brandon Rowley and brother Dustin Bahm.
Liam Craig one-upped Tanner’s hattrick on Friday with a four goal performance Tuesday.
In all, 13 players made the scoreboard, with eight having multipoint nights. Craig, the Bahms, and Dex Elders led the way with four points. Dylan Ushkowski followed with three, while Kole Comin, Nick VanderPloeg, and Rowley had two.
Riley Swiscoski, Raymond Prive, and Griffin Young scored a goal each, while Tim Zimmer and Lane Wycotte had an assist each.
Conor Webb had another strong night in net, making 28 saves on 29 shots (.966 SV%). The Canucks had 40 shots, and went four for five on the power play.
Predictably in a lopsided affair, things got heated with 159 penalty minutes assessed between the two teams, and five game misconducts.
With the win, the Canucks are on a three game win streak and have a 4-2 record. Over the streak, they’ve scored 22 goals (7.33 goals per game).
They will look to continue the hot hand Friday at home versus the Fairview Flyers, whom they’ve outscored 12-3 in two match-ups so far. Saturday, on the road, the Junior C’s will be tested against a North Peace Navigators team who has had them by their numbers since eliminating them in last year’s playoffs, outscoring the Canucks 14-4 in back-to-back games during the second weekend of the season. Both games start 8 pm local time.
