North Okanagan Knights Jr. Hockey Club Players, Coaching Staff and
A flurry of fur filled the Nor Val Sports Centre Friday night.
It was raining teddy bears at the Armstrong arena, following the team’s first goal against the 100 Mile House Wranglers.
Along with the teddy bear toss, Friday included a food drive, all in support of Kindale Developmental Association.
Carl Main got the goal that got the teddy bears thrown onto the ice.
Ben Jossinet got the goal that gave the home team the lead.
Jaden Hay got the goal that sealed two crucial points for the North Okanagan Knights.
Jossinet scored twice and was named player of the game for North Okanagan as they defeated the 100 Mile House Wranglers 5-3 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Friday at Armstrong’s Nor-Val Sports Centre.
The win moved the Knights (8-16-1-3) to within seven points of the fourth place Kelowna Chiefs in the Okanagan Division. The Chiefs (12-12-1-2) lost 7-4 in Revelstoke Friday.
The Knights will host Kelowna twice before the Christmas break.
Main opened the scoring at 7:25 with a powerplay goal, his eighth of the year, which resulted in the ice being littered with teddy bears and stuffies thrown by the fans for charity at the Knights’ annual game.
Jett Saharchuk upped the lead to 2-0 three minutes into the second period with his second of the season.
The Wranglers battled back to tie the game before Jossinet scored with four minutes left to give the Knights a 3-2 lead heading into the final period.
100 Mile House would tie the game, with a second powerplay marker, five minutes into the third, setting the stage for Jossinet to score his fifth, the game-winner, at 9:23.
Jaden Hay put away the two points for the Knights with an empty net goal with 54 seconds remaining. Hay, Main and Tyler Olsen lead the Knights with eight goals each. Zach Willms made 31 saves to pick up his eighth win of the season for the Knights. Hayden Lyons made 37 saves for the Wranglers,
The teams split their two regular season meetings. 100 Mile beat the Knights 10-3 earlier this season in the South Cariboo.
The Wranglers (15-10-3-0) are third in the Doug Birks Division, four points behind the front-running Chase Heat and three back of Revelstoke.
Newcomer sets up four goals in second game as Knights beat Kelowna in KIJHL action
In 22 games this season with the Beaver Valley Nitehawks, Jake Huculak had three points.
In two games since being acquired by the North Okanagan Knights, Huculak has four. And they all came in one game, and nearly in one period.
Huculak, an 18-year-old forward from Jasper, Alta., had four assists to lead the Knights to a 6-5 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League win over the Chiefs in Kelowna Saturday.
Three of Huculak’s assists came in the first period on goals from Tyler Olsen, Carl Main (powerplay) and Dean Whitcomb as the Knights built a 4-3 lead. Whitcomb opened the scoring 27 seconds after the national anthem, and finished the scoring with the only goal of the third period, an unassisted marker with 6:14 remaining.
The Chiefs took the lead in the second period, only to have North Okanagan equalize with Olsen’s second of the game with 2:16 left in the period.
Zach Willms made 23 saves to get the win as the Knights (7-16-3-1) moved to within nine points of fourth-place Kelowna in the Okanagan Division.
A night earlier, at home, the Knights dropped a tough 3-1 decision at home to the division-leading Summerland Steam. Drayton Martin had the only goal for North Okanagan, who host the 100 Mile House Wranglers (second in Doug Birks Division at 15-8-3-0, one point behind Chase Heat) Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Nor-Val Sports Centre.
The game is the Knights’ annual Teddy Bear Toss, where fans are asked to bring a stuffy to the game and throw it on the ice when the Knights score. It’s also Hampers For Hope Day, where fans are asked to bring a non-perishable item for Christmas hampers and get $1 off their game admission price.
North Okanagan Knights Defenseman Jason Shaigec is the winner for Player of the Month for November.
