The Toronto Jr. Canadiens had the Don Mills Flyers number this past season and continued their success against their black and orange opponent on Wednesday, skating to a 4-0 win as Sami Molu stopped all 21 shots he faced.
Blueliner Daniil Chayka (2) opened the scoring after a scoreless first period, converting on the power play with an assist from Dylan Robinson at 5:25. Robinson (1) added a goal of his own just 28 seconds later as JRC was in the driver’s seat up 2-0.
Liam Kennedy (1) and Cole O’Hara (1) added third period tallies as the Jr. Canadiens improved to 1-0-1.
“I think our team can do big things and I think we showed that when we won the Marlboros Tournament at Christmas,” said Jr. Canadiens captain Shawn Spearing. “We spread the scoring around today and put in a full effort.
“We’ll need more of that in the next couple days against some good teams.”
The Jr. Canadiens outshot Don Mills 38-21, going 1-for-7 on the power play while holding the Flyers to 0-for-4.
JRC (1-0-1) is back in action against the Thunder Bay Kings (0-1-0) at 8:45pm while Don Mills (0-1-0) battles Barrie (0-0-1) at 9:15pm.
