SCUGOG: International hockey comes to North Durham next week, when the Central Ontario Wolves ‘AAA’ Midgets host Jungadler Mannheim Under-18, at Scugog Arena.
The RBC Canada-Germany Showcase match-up takes place in Port Perry, on Thursday, February 1st, with the action getting underway at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance, at the Scugog Arena information desk or the RBC branch on Queen St., in Port Perry. Ticketholders will each receive a souvenir t-shirt at the door at game day.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity to be able to welcome Mannheim to our community, and offer an authentic small-town hockey experience to our German guests,” offered Wolves communications director Darryl Knight.
With six games left in the ETA regular season, the East Division-leading Wolves hold a six-point lead over Whitby, and are in the midst of a neck-and-neck race with Ajax-Pickering for top spot in the league.

KAWARTHA LAKES: Lindsay Muskies recently added net minder Maxim Clouser, who made 50 saves in his first start with his new club, but it was not enough, as the Kingston Voyageurs defeated the Fish by a count of 7-1, in the Limestone City Sunday afternoon.
The Vees actually got hat tricks from two different players in the afternoon.
Rob Clerc scored his first of three just 30 seconds in, with the helpers going to Dorian Overland and Colin Van Den Hurk. Then at 12:39, it was Josh Leblanc grabbing his first en route to his hat trick, from Evan Brand and Greg Powles.
Clouser faced 17 shots in his first period with the Muskies, and, despite the look of the scoreboard, played pretty well.
He faced 26 more shots in the second period alone, but only three got past him. Leblanc’s 2nd of the game came on a power play, at 12:58, then Brady Rawn made it 4-0, at 15:06, from Brandon Nadeau and Adam Kim. Erich Roeder’s 11th goal of the year got the Muskies on the board, at the 19:15, mark of the period. That goal was set up by Ben Sellars and Noah Dollo.
The Vees put the hammer down in the third frame though, with a lot of the same names appearing on the score sheet. Clerc’s 2nd of the game came at 7:06, from Leblanc and Overland. Leblanc completed his three goal of the day at 13:20, from Overland and Clerc, and Clerc rounded out the scoring at 19:14, from Leblanc.
The Muskies are home to the Georgetown Raiders on Friday night.
SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks came out of the weekend with a split, defeating the Georgina Ice, on Friday, January 19th, before dropping a close game to the Lakefield Chiefs, on Sunday, January 21st.
The MoJacks struck first in Friday’s game in Georgina. 33 seconds into game, Austin Mackie scored. Then, less than two minutes in, Graham Lamers scored, in his first game back from suspension, giving the MoJacks a 2-0 lead. Less than 30 seconds later, Mitch Gustavsen lit the lamp, to extend Port Perry’s lead to 3-0. Almost four and a half minutes after that, Brady Martin scored a power play goal. The Ice got on the board less than nine minutes into the first frame, but Luke Wyatt answered with a goal over a minute after, and Port Perry had a 5-1 lead going into the second period.
Almost a minute and a half into that period, Jeff Gauld scored a short-handed goal. About two and a half minutes later, Lamers scored his second goal of the game, giving the MoJacks a 7-1 lead. The Ice scored later in the period, and Port Perry carried a 7-2 lead into the third period.
Ben Sheremeta was the lone goal scorer in that period, and the MoJacks held on to beat the Ice 8-2.
The MoJacks then headed to Scugog Arena for a matchup with the Lakefield Chiefs. However, despite a valiant comeback effort, the MoJacks were unable to beat the Chiefs, in a heated, penalty filled game on Sunday.
Lakefield scored twice in the first period and had a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of play.
Then, late in the second period, after Spencer Robinson took an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, the Chiefs scored again, and had a 3-0 lead heading into the final frame.
The MoJacks got some hope in third period, as less than five minutes in, Brady Martin scored. Then, over 12 and a half minutes in, on a MoJack power play, Derek Risebrough fired the puck past goaltender Michael Christie, cutting the Chiefs’ lead to 3-2. The MoJacks pressed late in the game, but were unable to get the tying goal, and fell 3-2 to the Chiefs.
After the game, MoJacks head coach Tom Boyle said both teams played well.
“I thought it was a good game by both teams. I thought it was a playoff type intensity, both teams were working hard and playing hard and we fell a little short,” he said. “I thought we had some good chances in the first period, the puck just didn’t bounce our way. [Lakefield goaltender Christie] was solid in net, and the boys just got playing hard and going at him, and it was a 3-2 hockey game.”
The MoJacks will be looking to get back into the win column when they play against the Little Britain Merchants, in Little Britain, on Saturday, January 27th. Puck drop for that game is 7:30 p.m.
Their next game at Scugog Arena is against the North Kawartha Knights, on Sunday, January 28th, at 2:25 p.m.

SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks won back to back-to-back games over the weekend, defeating the North Kawartha Knights and the Little Britain Merchants.
Before their weekend games took place, ahead of the January 10th trade deadline, the MoJacks re-acquired last year’s Orr division leading scorer, Mitch Gustavsen, from the Pickering Panthers, in exchange for Tyler Giamov.
“It was an opportunity that presented itself, in that Mitch was not happy where he was in Pickering and had expressed interest in coming back and finishing the year with the MoJacks. He played here two years previous, and very much enjoyed the way we operated our hockey club, with how we treated him and the rest of our players for that matter, and just wanted to come back and help us in our quest to win a championship,” MoJacks general manager Murray Parliament told The Standard.
As well, Mr. Parliament said Giamov was a “great kid [and] a great player” for the MoJacks, stating that he did everything the coaching staff asked of him.
“We hated to lose him, you hate to lose a young guy of his talent, but at some point you make a decision that for the balance of the season one offers a little bit different quality to our hockey club than the other,” he said.
He also spoke about what his expectations are for Gustavsen.
“I think that Mitch has got to play a little bit of a different style than he played last year, with respect to his role on the team and getting less involved in the physical aspect and more involved in giving us added offense that we were looking for,” Mr. Parliament said.
The MoJacks’ game against North Kawartha, in Apsley on Saturday, January 13th, was scoreless until the second period. The period did not start the way the team had hoped, as less than two minutes in, North Kawartha scored. But, less than nine minutes later, James Boyle put the puck in the net to tie the game.
Then, in the dying seconds of the second period, Derek Risebrough scored a power play goal, to give Port Perry their first lead of the game.
In the third period, Gustavsen rewarded the MoJacks for bringing him back by scoring twice, and the MoJacks defeated North Kawartha by a final score of 4-1.
The MoJacks then headed back to Scugog Arena, looking to carry the momentum from the win into a matchup with the Little Britain Merchants.
Over four minutes into the first frame, Owen Hurtibese scored, giving the MoJacks the first lead of the game. Less than four minutes later, Ben Sheremeta received a great pass from Hurtibese and deposited the puck into the open side of the net, to give Port Perry a 2-0 lead. With 42 seconds left in the period, Luke Wyatt rifled a shot into the top right corner of the net, extending Port Perry’s lead to 3-0.
Port Perry continued to roll in the second period. Less than four minutes in, Josh Dickson lit the lamp. Then, over 11 minutes in, Luke Wyatt picked up his second goal of the game, and Port Perry had a 5-0 lead. Less than two minutes later, Brady Martin scored.
17 seconds after that, Gustavsen got on the scoresheet with a goal, giving the MoJacks a 7-0 lead. With less than five and a half minutes remaining in the period, Dickson tipped a pass from Hurtibese into the back of the net, for his second goal of the game, giving Port Perry an 8-0 lead. Less than 3 minutes later, Austin Mackie received a perfect pass from Derek Risebrough and put it in the back of the net. With 25 seconds remaining in the second frame, Dickson scored his hat trick goal, and Port Perry had a 10-0 lead after 40 minutes of play.
The MoJacks scored twice in the third period, Martin scored his second of the game and Dickson scored his fourth goal of the game, and held on to beat the Merchants by a final score of 12-0. Corey Kuypers stopped all 11 shots he faced, earning the shutout.
After the game, MoJacks head coach Tom Boyle said he liked his team’s energy and compete level.
“The boys just played awesome. I know that it was Little Britain, and [the Merchants] haven’t won a game all year, but right from the drop of the puck we were on fire and going, and that just carried through the whole game. I thought we played really well,” he said.
He also spoke about what he thought about Gustavsen’s first two games with the team.
“Mitch has been pretty solid and it’s nice to get him back in our lineup, and he should help us definitely going down the stretch and in the playoffs.”
The MoJacks will next play against the Georgina Ice, in Georgina, on Friday, January 19th. Puck drop for that game is 7:30 p.m. They will then face the only team in the Orr division that is ahead of them in the standings, the Lakefield Chiefs, on Sunday, Jan. 21st, at Scugog Arena. That game will start at 2:25 p.m.

KAWARTHA LAKES: An early first period goal, and three unanswered second period goals were the difference as the Lindsay Muskies fell to defeat at the hands of the Markham Royals, by a score of 7-2, Sunday afternoon in Markham.
The Royals got on the board just six seconds into the game, when Jack Jeffers scored on Lindsay netminder Blake Curran. The goal was assisted by Lucas Condotta and Brett Ouderkirk. Condotta doubled the lead, at the 17:06 mark, on a goal set up by Brandon Bastasin and Jeffers, but the Muskies got one back at 19:59, when Noah Dollo’s team leading 17th goal of the season was scored on a power play, from Erich Roeder and Cam Robinson.
The score stayed deadlocked at 2-1 throughout most of the second period, but late in the frame the floodgates opened and the Royals took advantage. At 17:03, Justin Bennett scored, from Stephen Halliday and Lucas Condotta, to put Markham up 3-1. At 18:56, it was Kosta Likourezos on a penalty shot, the Condotta lit the lamp again at 19:37, from Ouderkirk and Jeffers, to put Markham up 5-1 heading into the second intermission.
Joey Campbell’s 5th of the year, on a power play at 3:30, from Stefan Palatsidis and Owen Barnett, made it 5-2, but any hopes the Fish had, of getting back into this one, were dashed just thirty seconds later, when Ouderkirk scored from Jeffers and Condotta. Jeffers then scored his second of the game to round out the scoring at 14:48, to send the hometown Royals fans home happy.
The next action for the Muskies is a Tuesday night home game, as they host the Aurora Tigers.

UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Bruins snapped out of their recent six-game losing streak in spectacular fashion, on Sunday afternoon in Port Perry, needing overtime to take down the rival MoJacks by a final score of 5-4.
After dropping a 2-1 overtime decision to the Georgina Ice, at the Bear Den on Friday, January 5th, the Bruins came into Sunday’s game in danger of falling further out of the mix for a top-three place in the standings, trailing the Clarington Eagles by four points.
The Bruins took control of the game early, and by the mid-point of the first period had pushed themselves to a 2-0 advantage. But, before the end of the frame, Matthew Doucette had scored for the MoJacks to cut the Uxbridge lead in half.
Before the midpoint of the second period the Bruins had built a three-goal lead.
Travis Buxcey scored, just over two minutes into the action, as a Port Perry penalty was expiring. With just over nine minutes played, Cameron Moffitt picked up a loose puck in front of the Uxbridge net, and skated the length of the ice, weaving between two MoJacks defenders, before beating MoJacks goalie Corey Kuypers high on the blocker side. Late in the frame though, the MoJacks kicked off their comeback, with power play goals from Spencer Robinson and Kody Fruhner, bringing the home side to within one.
In the third period, a late Bruins penalty would prove costly, as Fruhner notched his second of the afternoon, with just over a minute remaining, to force overtime.
Simon Fieg ended the action, just over a minute into the extra frame, when he pounced on an attempted pass at the MoJacks’ blue line and slithered around a Port Perry defender before beating Kuypers’ blocker, to give the Bruins a season-sweep of the MoJacks at Scugog Arena.
As has become common, Ryan McConkey was sensational in goal for the Bruins on Sunday afternoon. The second-year netminder turned aside 53 of the 57 shots fired at him by Port Perry.
Aiden Reilly had the lone goal for Uxbridge in their Friday night over time loss to the Ice. The Bruins kept Georgina goalie Jacob Lebel busy throughout the evening, firing 59 shots on goal.
The Bruins will look to claw their way past the Clarington Eagles at the Bear Den, on Friday, January 12th at 7:45 p.m., in a game with enormous implications for next month’s Orr Division playoffs, with Clarington closing out this past weekend two points ahead of Uxbridge, for third-place in the standings.
On Sunday, January 14th the Bruins head to Sutton for a 3:30 p.m. matinee match-up with the Georgina Ice.
Fieg’s overtime winner was his team-leading 20th goal of the season.
Reilly leads all Bruins scorers with 35 points (19 goals and 16 assists).
