The North van Wolf Pack just keep getting better.
At last update just two weeks ago, the Wolf Pack were first in the Tom Shaw Conference, and trailed only the Mission City Outlaws in the entire PJHL.
Now, North Van has passed Mission City and sit first in the PJHL, where they finished last season.
The Wolf Pack had just three games in the past two weeks, but they made the most of them by winning all three. That extends their winning streak to a league-best six straight games.
They started things off with a 7-3 win over the Ridge Meadows Flames. Mitchell Ledyard and new defenseman Jivan Sidhu each chipped in with two goals and an assist.
A week later they kept things rolling against the Port Moody Panthers in a 3-1 win. Despite being outshot, they picked up the win with a solid 34-save effort in goal from Brock Leach-Moore. Scott Munro and Ram Brar each had two points.
The most recent game for the Wolf Pack was a 4-2 win over the Delta Ice-Hawks. Leach-Moore played once again, making 33 saves this time as once again Ledyard, Brar, and Munro led the Wolf Pack offense.
The Wolf Pack have one game left in 2015, and it’s against Mission City on Saturday, December 19. Mission City has lost three straight games.
Here’s a look at both conferences in the PJHL:
|North Vancouver Wolf Pack||29||21||7||0||1||43||138||87||+51||0.741||W6|
|Delta Ice Hawks||28||13||11||1||3||30||101||111||-10||0.536||L1|
|Port Moody Panthers||29||5||22||1||1||12||69||114||-45||0.207||L6|
|Mission City Outlaws||29||20||8||0||1||41||136||84||+52||0.707||L3|
|Ridge Meadows Flames||27||11||12||1||3||26||97||114||-17||0.481||L1|
The depth of the Wolf Pack continues to be unmatched by any other team. They have six players scoring at a point-per-game rate, and a few others nearly at that rate.
Here’s the top ten biggest contributors of the Wolf Pack, with current-BCHLer Troy Ring still on the list:
Back from suspension, Brock Leach-Moore had a solid week, picking up two wins and sporting a .957 save percentage in the two starts.
Trevor Withers managed to pick up a win in his lone start against Ridge Meadows, allowing three on 36 shots.
Leach-Moore now has a very impressive 7-1-0 record with a 2.39 GAA and .912 SV%. His statistics are superior to Withers in every category (except shutouts).
Last season, Withers came in as a rookie and took the starting job from Nicholas Anderson. A very similar theme is occuring this season, though Withers is still the starter with 23 starts to Leach-Moore’s ten. Leach-Moore has started two straight games though, so this will be an area to watch as the season goes on.
