Lakers solidify hold on second

The Fort Frances Lakers notched yet another road win last night with a 4-2 victory over the host Dryden Ice Dogs.
The Lakers improved their record to 29-15-1-2 and now enjoy a six-point lead over the Ice Dogs in the race for second place.

Lakers’ captain Merritt Rysavy led the way with two goals and an assist while linemate Jordan Christianson had a pair of helpers.
Kevin Kurm and Simon Desrosiers also scored for the Lakers.
Tyson Holder and Jesse Linner each had a goal and an assist for the Ice Dogs.
Both squads will square off again tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at the Ice For Kids Arena here— the second of three-straight games between the two clubs.
The Lakers also will host the Ice Dogs on Tuesday (Feb. 26), with the puck dropping at 7:30 p.m.
In other news, Lakers’ forward Tyler Brodersen was rewarded for his recent hot play by being named the SIJHL’s player-of-the-week on Tuesday.
Brodersen, an 18-year-old from St. Louis Park, Mn., had a goal and an assist in each of a pair of wins over the Minnesota Iron Rangers last week.
