Niederberger makes 44 saves as the Colts blank the Storm

BARRIE, Ont. - Mathias Niederberger made 44 saves as the Barrie Colts blanked the Guelph Storm 2-0 in Ontario Hockey League action Saturday night.

The shutout was Niederberger’s second in eight days and third of the season.

Steven Beyers and Tyson Fawcett scored for Barrie (37-19-4), which snapped a four-game winless streak.

Garret Sparks made 33 saves in a losing cause for Guelph (33-20-5), which were shutout for just the second time this season.

The Colts found some success on the power play, going 1-for-3, while the Storm failed to score on two chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
