Game Report

For the final game of the season, the IceCaps did not disappoint their fans.  After a quickly played first period which again did not see any goals or penalties, the Wolf Pack struck first in the second period.

After that, it was Jacob de la Rose who stormed into the second frame with a beautiful shot from the high slot to tie the game.  Both goaltenders, Eddie Pasquale and Mackenzie Skapski, were lights out stopping shot after shot from either team.

In the third period Tim Bozon got the go-ahead goal and the IceCaps kept the Wolf Pack at bay for the rest of the game.  It was a tremendous way for the team to end their season as they saluted their St. John’s fans from center ice.

Prior to the game, awards were given out by the team to some of its players.  Michael McCarron was named Rookie of the Year, Zach Fucale was named Community Man of the Year, Josiah Dider was awarded the Hardest Working Player, Morgan Ellis won Top Defenceman, and captain Gabriel Dumont earned the MVP award for the season.
