Palazzese stops 24 shots in debut as Wolves blank Steeleheads

SUDBURY, Ont. - Franky Palazzese stopped all 24 shots he faced in his Sudbury debut as the Wolves blanked the visiting Mississauga Steelheads 2-0 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action.

The 19-year-old goaltender, who was acquired from the Kitchener Rangers on Jan. 8th, improved his overall record to 9-6-1 with the victory and it was his second-career shutout.

Dominik Kubalik and Nicholas Baptiste supplied the offense for the Wolves (19-16-7), who are on a five-game winning streak.

Mathew Campagna extended his league-leading point streak to 17 games with an assist and now has seven goals and 29 points during the process.

Martin Spencer allowed two goals on 20 shots for the Steelheads (20-16-4), who have dropped three games in a row.

Kubalik opened the scoring on the power play with a shot from in front of the net at 12:35 in the second period.

Sudbury struck for the second time with the man-advantage when Baptiste capitalized on a two-on-one break at 16:36.

Sudbury went 2 for 3 on the power play while Mississauga failed to score on two chances with the man-advantage.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
