The Sudbury Cubs recorded two more victories last week including a 5-3 win over the Soo Eagles on Thursday and a 3-2 overtime win over the Soo Thunderbirds on Saturday night. The victories now give the Cubs 72 points on the season and a 12-point lead over the Soo Thunderbirds and Blind River Beavers for first-place in the NOJHL West Division. The Cubs remain in first-place overall in the NOJHL with a 3-point lead over the Timmins Rock.
The victories and the team’s sparking 35-6-2 win-loss record has moved the local junior team into 6 th place overall in the Country! This is the highest NATIONAL ranking that a Sudbury Junior ‘A’ based team has ever attained!
The Cubs were led in scoring last week by 17-year-old star forward NOLAN NEWTON who recorded two goals in Thursday’s 5-3 win over the Soo Eagles – including the game winner. Newton was named the game’s first star and was subsequently named an EASTLINK STAR OF THE WEEK! BILLY BIEDERMANN and Cubs defenceman DEVIN SHOREMAN each recorded three helpers. Newton has moved back into the top 10 in league scoring among first-year players with 8 goals, 20 assists for 28 points. The local youngster was voted as the top player in the North prior to being selected in the 5th round of the 2022 OHL selection by the Barrie Colts. Nolan celebrated his 17th birthday on Friday, January 27th one day after his first-star performance against the Soo Eagles.
