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.
This weekend, Central Ontario sends a trio of players to the 18th annual OMHA Midget All Star game in St. Catharines. Alex Bourre, winner of the MVP award, at December’s ETA All Star game, will be joined by teammates Brett and Brandon Benham as the ETA takes on the SCTA.
This past weekend, the Wolves came away from the Peterborough Tournament of Champions with a 3-1 record, after posting wins over Brantford, North Central and Burlington. However, they would narrowly miss the playoff round.
The next home game for the Wolves is slated for Tuesday, January 30th, when they play host to the Richmond Hill Coyotes, in the first half of a home-and-home encounter.
