Max Reinhart scores twice for Abbotsford Heat in 4-3 win over Utica Comets

UTICA, N.Y. - Max Reinhart scored twice as the Abbotsford Heat held off the Utica Comets 4-3 in American Hockey League play Friday.

Blair Jones, with the game-winning goal, and Markus Granlund also scored for the Heat (6-4-1).

Henrik Tommernes, Zach Hamill and Benn Ferriero replied for the winless Comets (0-6-2).

Abbotsford goaltender Joni Ortio finished with 27 saves, while Joe Cannata stopped 30 shots for Utica.

Reinhart's first goal gave Abbotsford a brief lead in the first period before Hamill tied the game less than two minutes later.

The teams traded goals again in the second, with Tommernes and Granlund swapping power-play goals.

Reinhart scored 6:32 into the third, but Utica's Ferriero tied the game for the last time at 8:15. Jones then scored at 15:25 to put Abbotsford ahead for good.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
