Pint-sized pivot Adam Jonak added to his Midwest Jr. Hockey League-leading point totals on Wednesday by scoring twice and assisting on another as the MC Monarchs upended the visiting Detroit Fighting Irish by a 6-3 margin.
A 1994 birth-year centre, Jonak now has 43 goals, 54 assists, 97 points in 33 games this season. His 97 points are 38 more than his nearest challenger for the MWJHL scoring crown.
Of note, the MWJHL record for points in a regular season is 104.
Bryce Peplinski added a goal and an assist for the second-place Monarchs, who moved three points ahead of the Fighting Irish in the MWJHL standings. Detroit does have three games in hand on MC.
Colton James, Tory Shand and Joe Gibbs also scored for the Monarchs, who chased Fighting Irish starting goalie Kory Dombrowski with 6 goals on 30 shots. George Hill finished up in the Detroit net and stopped the 4 shots that he faced.
Chuck Hicks, Ken Winter and Steven Sewell scored for Detroit.
