Powassan power at full steam

December 20, 2016

Ho, ho, ho. Times 23. Powassan Voodoos of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League are headed into the Christmas break on a remarkable 23-game winning streak.

A team built by the affable Chris Dawson — who is a multi-media journalist by day and a junior hockey general manager by night — the small-market Voodoos have become a model franchise.

Powassan power lit up the night again on Monday as coach Scott Wray’s Voodoos put up 63 shots on goal en route to a 12-3 drubbing of the visiting Iroquois Falls Eskis.

Victory no. 23 in succession sends Powassan on Christmas holidays with a league-best record of 30-3-1 atop the standings of the 12-team NOJHL.

In only their third season of existence, the Dawson-led Voodoos have put Powassan — a small town of about 3,300 residents located along Highway 11 on the outskirts of North Bay — on the Canada-wide junior A hockey map.

  1. (From what I know): Peters won’t pay, so they are holding him for $5k plus a player from Trenton, he wants to play with his FREINDS there…

  2. Not what i “heard”

    He isn’t playing this year because he wanted to get on with life and work etc.., and if he plays at all it would be at home so he could keep it up.
    rumours though..,
