Junior Hockey Network


In Kirkland Lake at the Joe Mavrinac Community Complex on Friday, September 25th in a East divison match – up, the Gold Miners faced the French River Rapids. The Gold Miners were coming off a 4 – 0 shutout win in Iroquois Falls on September 19th against the Eskimos.

Dalton Anderson sank the first goal of the game just past the halfway mark of the first at 10:17 to give the Gold Miners a 1 – 0 lead with assists from Jamey Lauzon and Joel Fortin. Brandon Wolfe gave Kirkland Lake a 2 – 0 lead with a goal behind Rapids netminder Chad Mosley at 12:44 of the second with helpers from Jesse Houlton and Lauzon.

Brayden Stortz added to the Gold Miners lead at 13:20 of the second with Marc-Antoine Arseneau and Houlton registering the assists. Sinking his fifth of the season, Logan Fredericks scores the Gold Miners fourth goal of the game unassisted at 9:26 of the third to give Kirkland Lake a 4 – 0 shutout win over French Rapids.

19 year old Gold Miner goaltender Marc Audet earns his second straight shutout this season with the 4 – 0 win over French River.

Gold Miner forward Jamey Lauzon told the Junior Hockey Network that “I think a big part of the win tonight was doing the little things right, such as finishing our checks, getting pucks to the net, playing with patience, playing as a team and our goaltending is really helping us this season!”

“I think we played well it was a good win while we played as a team. We stuck to our game plan and the boys were ready to go from the start.  The coaches prepare us to face our opponents and give us a game plan and we play what the coach gave us and and that is why were winning right now. As long as we follow the game plan, we will have success and our goalies are helping to with big saves,” said Kirkland Lake forward Maxime Choquette.

Kirkland Lake is back in action at the Joe Mavrinac Community Complex on Saturday, September 26th when they host the Rayside Balfour Canadians for a 7:30 p.m start.
