The ‘Dogs offense, which has combined for 18 goals in the past two weeks will be looking to continue their success against one of the league’s stronger goaltending tandems. Arturs Silovs and Jet Greaves have combined for 12 wins this season, including three shutouts. Silovs, ranked 7th in the league has a goals against average of 3.23 and a save percentage of .902, while Greaves has a goals against average of 4.00 and a .873 save percentage.
Rookie forward Cameron Snow, who played minor midget in the Barrie area, will be looking to register his first OHL point. As comes with being a rookie on one of the youngest teams in the OHL, Snow has yet to put his name on the scoresheet. He’s been gaining more and more confidence, as he’s been trusted to play in nearly all situations for the rebuilding IceDogs.
Tonight’s game will be broadcast live on YourTV, and Newstalk 610 CKTB. Fans can also live stream the game on OHL Live, and follow live updates through the Niagara IceDogs’ Twitter.
