Kodiaks keep winning

The change in the calendar has done little to slow the Aldergrove Kodiaks.

After the junior B hockey club won their final seven games of 2012, they have continued their white-hot play, winning the first two contests of 2013 to stretch their winning streak to nine games.

The most recent victories came last week in a pair of one-goal decisions: 2-1 over the North Vancouver Wolf Pack on Jan. 2 at the Aldergrove Arena and then on Jan. 4, Mark Menicucci made 25 saves while Scott McHaffie had the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over the host Abbotsford Pilots. That game was at MSA Arena.

The Kodiaks (19-11-1-0, 39 points) are seven points back of the first place Pilots. Aldergrove does have one game in hand.

Against the Wolf Pack, Menicucci had another solid game, stopping 34 of the 35 shots he faced.

Roshen Jaswal and Ryan Simpson scored for Aldergrove, while Taylor Tanti had the lone North Vancouver goal.

Aldergrove will look to extend their winning streak to double digits when they host the Grandview Steelers on Jan. 9. Puck drop is 7:15 p.m.
