Canes suffer shutout loss to Listowel
GUELPH – The Guelph Hurricanes yielded three goals in the first period as they were blanked 4-0 by the Listowel Cyclones in Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League play Saturday night at the Sleeman Centre.
Listowel scored its other goal in the second period and outshot the Canes 33-22.
Brady Anderson fired home a pair of goals for Listowel while Holdyn Lansink and Caleb Warren also scored. Cullen Mercer and Max Coyle each had two assists while Garrett Russell, Anderson, Keaton Willis and Chayse Herrfort had one apiece.
Both teams had seven power plays. The Cyclones scored on two of their power plays and held the Canes scoreless on their power plays.
Max Wright stopped 22 shots for the shutout. Trenton McGrail made 20 saves for the Canes until he was replaced by Jet Greaves at 5:31 of the third period after being given a game misconduct for a roughing major. Greaves made nine saves.
The game was the first home game for the Canes since they made some personnel changes.
