Tyler Kreklewich have yourself a night!
The fourth-year forward for the Drumheller Dragons went off against the Canmore Eagles tonight, scoring four points.
Kreklewich’s first point of the night came on the league’s best home powerplay. The centreman played a nice cross-ice feed over to the Dragons top goal scorer, Jordan Taupert, who made no mistake and gave his team a first-period lead. Right before that, Kreklewich worked hard on the boards behind the net to free up the puck and get his team’s powerplay moving. A great sequence of plays by the veteran forward.
The points kept coming for the Dragons forward after getting assists on Joren Patenaude’s first goal and on Drumheller’s sixth goal of the game courtesy of Brett Edwards on the powerplay.
Kreklewich would get his name in the goal column on this night too. Late in the third period, Kreklewich picked up the puck just over the blueline on the right side of the ice; carried from one side of the ice to the other, then rocketed one passed Thomas Davis in the Eagles goal from the top of the left faceoff circle.
With those four points tonight, Tyler Kreklewich moves into fifth on the team in scoring with 18 points (7G, 11A).
