Special Remembrance Day tribute at Winterhawks game
with Port Elgin Legion Colour Guard

Private Mike Hobson of the 1st Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment (RCR), who served with the Afghanistan Task Force 306, dropped the ceremonial puck for Mike Smyth of Shallow Lake and Greg Thede of Port Elgin

The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks improved their record to 6-1-0 with a hard-fought 3-1 win over the Shallow Lake Crushers at home on Remembrance Day.

The Winterhawks went all out in honour of our military veterans with a pre-game ceremony featuring the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 340 Colour Guard and a ceremonial puck drop by Mike Hobson who served in Afghanistan.

The home team wore special camouflage jerseys in recognition of the day and which were then auctioned off by Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker to raise $6,350 for the local Legion branch.

Former NHLer Theo Peckham scored his first of the season at 13:51 of the first period on a power play assisted by Bryan Kazarian and Alex Kuntz.

Trent Hawke widened the margin midway through the second as he showed great patience holding on to the puck before depositing it in the Crushers net.

Adam Little notched his first of the season jamming home a loose puck in a goal mouth scramble late in the second.

Blake Sinclair looked destined for the shutout until Devon Richardson scored on a power play with 28 seconds remaining in the game.
