The IceCaps completed a highly successful home stand winning all four games played the past week.
They are now first overall in the 30 team American Hockey League. They lead the Eastern Conference by 5 points and lead the Atlantic Division by a whopping 12 points. And how about 28 consecutive sellouts for the St.John’s team. Those are some impressive stats for the new club.
On Wednesday February 8th the IceCaps won 2 – 1 over the Bruins in overtime with Jason DeSantis scoring the winner on a pass from Jason King, Corner Brook, NL. Nathan McIver, Charlottetown, PEI was in the lineup again for the Bruins.
On Sunday February 12th the IceCaps defeated the Senators 6 -3 with Captain Jason Jaffray and Ben Maxwell each scoring 2 goals. Jason King netted his 15th of the season in this contest.
In addressing the media following the Saturday game - Head Coach Keith McCambridge had this to say about Jason King
“When I watch King play, he does a lot of things right for this team. He goes to the hard areas. He battles to retrieve pucks. He's good in his own zone. He's a leader on the bench. And from the circles down in the offensive zone, that goal was a direct result of a placement and where he can put the puck. That’s an NHL shot right there.”
Unfortunately, Patrice Cormier, Moncton NB missed all 4 games this week but it hoped he will return to action when the IceCaps next play on Friday February 17th.
The IceCaps start a 7 game road road trip in Hamilton on the 17th against the Bulldogs and then they face the Marlies in Toronto on Sunday February 19th.
