Adam Jonak nearing 100 points

January 15, 2015

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.

What you think about “Adam Jonak nearing 100 points”

  1. .. They have a thing that they call “Luck of the Irish” .. and then there are the M.C. Monarchs who have “luck coming out of there ass” .. This is the most over – rated Team with over – rated players ..

  2. More Irish American comments from the bottom of a glass.

    The Monarchs have been “lucky” enough to beat the Irish 4 out of 6 times this season. Last night was a good old fashioned beat down. There will be at least 7 Monarchs who will go to college or higher leagues next season. Jonak (who owns the Irish) will, in a week or so, set the league scoring record.

    The Irish have to come up with a better attack strategy than putting Winter on the ice every shift (admittedly he’s a very good hockey player, but can’t do it himself). Peace out!

  3. ya well the Irish are a Team of Goons that r led by Captain Smith. also Hicks and Pinkowski they are a pair of goons as well. Detroit = the dirtiest team in the League.

  4. This is such a good rivlrey that exists between the two teams { Fighting Irish and Monarchs } and I am so pleased that the competition is so healthy and with such good sports-man-ship.
    I do hope that the Coachs and Players continue to keep things clean between our 2 neighboring Junior Hockey Teams.
    To you Mr. Russon: Your promotioon and coverage of our Players is so very much appreciated. Thank You Sir!

  5. Put up 50 last year and he played on a power house team at the start. Just proves this league just got weaker. While he takes advantage of the lower end teams.

  6. All the players in this league will end up playing at the same collegiate level, which is not a bad thing. What is a bad thing is the way some coaches and owners in this league carry themselves as if they’re gods gift to hockey. This league is really a one horse race. TC will beat anybody in the playoffs easily. I agree with hockeyfan3335, the previous 2 seasons TC, DFI/TCH, and the SOO could’ve have competed with anybody in tier 3 hockey. Jonak is definitely going to set the league scoring record this year, the number I’m more interested in is the number of slipped discs he has from carrying his team. As far as the rumors for teams joining the USPHL, they should go, the hard part will be keeping the Michigan kids from moving away to play tier 3, which is a circumstance of people having more money than sense.

  7. No USPHL for them or anyone in the Midwest for the upcoming season! Heard that they denied all applications from the MnJHL as well. Maybe next year!
