Walleye playing catch up
October 15, 2021
Having played just three regular season games to date — fewest among the seven teams of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League — the Kam River Fighting Walleye is in Dryden this weekend for a pair of road tilts versus the Ice Dogs.
Kam River has a record of 1-1-1 thus far, having scored a season opening, home ice win over the cross town Thunder Bay North Stars before gaining a point via overtime loss from a pair of road matches against the Red Lake Miners last weekend.
By comparison, as Kam River has played only three games thus far, Thunder Bay has already taken part in eight contests and leads the SIJHL with 14 points from a record of 7-1-0.
Veteran forward Christian Veneruzzo leads the Fighting Walleye scoring parade with four points — all assists — in the three games as Kam River gets set to play at Dryden tonight and Saturday evening.
