EHL: Knights Bounce Back to Split Weekend with Oilers

Photo: EHL

On Sunday, the Knights took their second try at besting the Connecticut Oilers following their 4-2 loss Saturday. In round two, it was Connecticut that would provide the game’s first tally. Ryan Brand hammered a shot through Thomas Walker just shy of the halfway point of the first period (Ryan Kheir, Kieran Kennedy).

In their second showdown in as many days, Walker and Olof Djurberg continued their steady play as the pair fended off extended possessions in front of their respective creases. The Knights penalty kill also flexed its discipline as it failed to allow a goal in three first-period chances. At the first 20 minutes’ conclusion, the Oilers would hold a slim lead in a hard-fought first period.

The Knights were quick to draw even to open the second. After Djurberg denied three solid chances from the Knights, a fourth found the stick of Tyler Watungwa in front of the net for the tip-in equalizer. The goal came as a byproduct of assists from William Case and Tyler Nielsen, but was born out of a strong forecheck and puck-movement by all five Knights in the attacking zone.

Though both offenses created solid opportunities throughout the middle frame, it took most of the period for either attack to finish on said chances. At 18:13, Connecticut re-took the lead on Val Serdlov’s third goal of the weekend, set up by Kennedy and Keegan Lewis.

The lead would last all of 97 seconds, as in the final minute of the second period, Nate Chuckran fired a shot on goal that leaked through the pads of Djurberg to even the game once more.

The late-period score paved the way for more Knights momentum in the third. Just over a minute and a half in, Emerson Emery collected a Chuckran feed and pushed it home to provide Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with its first lead of the game.

Connecticut would force a golden opportunity to answer after their heavy play drew two Knights penalties just past the 5:00 point of the period. With 1:46 of 5-on-3 time, The Oilers were kept at bay by Thomas Walker’s heady play in net and the penalty kill’s sound positioning, moving the Knights to a perfect 5/5 shorthanded performance on the afternoon.

The cancellation of both penalties catapulted the Knights into the period’s final minutes with a one-goal lead. With the net empty, the Oilers applied strong pressure down the home stretch, but could not solve Walker, who made 42 saves on the day. When the clock hit zero, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton skated off with a 4-2 victory.

The team will next be in action on Saturday, February 24th when the Knights play host to the Philadelphia Junior Flyers. Puck drop is at 3:45 pm EST and the game will be broadcast on hockeytv.com.

NAHL: Knights Close Alaska Trip with Loss to Fairbanks

On Saturday night, the Knights met the Fairbanks Ice Dogs for the fourth and final time in the 2017-18 regular season, looking for their first victory against a team riding a 20-game winning streak.

The Ice Dogs struck quickly in a relatively quiet first period that saw just 12 combined shots on net. At 6:51 Tanner Schachle continued his successful season by putting his 22nd goal past Knights starter David Tomeo, coming off assists from Grant Ledford and Connor Chilton. Fairbanks backcheck allowed little to develop for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for the remainder of period with Logan Neaton keeping the Knights three shots at bay.

Early in the second, it appeared the Knights would finally get their offense going when Jack Olmstead danced his way into the Ice Dogs zone before setting up Tom Farrell for a backhanded goal. After deliberation, the officials proceeded to disallow the score, stating that the net had come off its moorings.

Fairbanks didn’t blink. Samuel Ruffin came right back down the ice to bury a goal past Tomeo on the ensuing shift (Daniel Haider, Jack Johnston) for a 3-0 lead at 3:12. John Stampohar added to the advantage with another tally just over three minutes later off assists from Robert Blueger and the aforementioned Schachle.

The Knights would finally catch a break when Mike Morrissey would set up Adrian Danchenko who in turn  threaded a perfect, home-run pass to Reed Robinson for a breakaway just under a minute later. Robinson would drive all the way in on Neaton and then put home his own rebound to cut the score to 3-1.

Fairbanks did not allow any further momentum, as their offense came  back on a power play dart from Robert Blueger at 13:09 (Kyle Mayhew, Schachle). Before the Knights could leave the period to regroup, Jack Johnston, set up by Ruffin and Jax Murray, poked a wraparound by Tomeo for the 5-1 advantage.

In the third Connor Chilton would strike early to put a damper on any hopes of a Knights rally. Chilton bested the Knights defense as he shook off heavy traffic in front to flip a puck home at 5:15 (Vanska, Schachle).

Anthony Firriolo wouldn’t go down quietly as he buried a power play goal set up by Jack Olmstead and Curtis Carlson at 6:05, his second of the season. If there was one silver lining on the weekend for the Knights, it was that they were able to turn in a 3/8 (37.5%) performance against the NAHL’s best penalty kill.

Jack Johnston picked up his second goal of the contest just over a minute later with helpers coming from Murray and Ruffin.

At the final horn the Knights left the rink on the wrong end of a 7-2 loss. They’ll look to bounce back with a road series in Johnstown next weekend to close out February before seven of their players and head coach Tom Kowal head to the NAHL’s Top Prospect Tournament to close out the month.

EHL: Knights Drop Game 1 Against Oilers

Photo: Jessica Kovalcin

The context of Friday’s match up between the Knights and Oilers saw two teams battling for playoff position as the EHL season winds closer to its finish. Entering play Saturday, the Knights trailed the New York Applecore for fourth in the South Conference while the Oilers had the opportunity to hop the sixth-place Junior Flyer’s after their loss earlier in the day.

The Knights struck first on the evening when Tyler Nielsen found a puck from Rhett Padgett and ripped it past Oilers goalie Olof Djurberg just three minutes into the first.

The Oilers would respond just past the halfway point of the period with numbers even on a 4-on-4. Val Sverdlov kicked off a big performance when he beat Thomas Walker to even the game at one (Zach Withington, Ian Wallgren).

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton would counter in the last minute of the period when Cody Rumsey picked up a nifty pass from Tyler Watungwa and flipped it home to give the Knights a 2-1 lead.

The early stages of the second period were dictated by a penalty per side, though neither team could capitalize. Both goalies stopped shorthanded rushes as each penalty-and power play-escaped without allowing a goal.

At 13:53 Sverdlov would even the game once more when his sharp-angle shot navigated its way by Walker off a feed from Ryan Brand. The period wound down with both Walker and Djurberg stoning the opposition and sending the contest to the third with the score gridlocked at two.

In the last stanza, the Oilers finally grabbed their first lead following Peter Capone’s goal at 7:50 (Fabian Zuccarello). The Knights would supply ample pressure in their attempt to tie the game, but Djurberg would prove a wall in net, stopping 15 shots in the third period.

The only glitch in the the Swedish goalie’s performance was disallowed after Bryan Whelan appeared to tie the game not long after Capone’s go-ahead score, only to see it waved off by the officials.

After each team traded an unsuccessful power play in the final 5:35, the Knights pulled Walker for the extra attacker with under a minute to play. Connecticut did well in clogging up neutral ice and in the final seconds, Tyler Lapshanski fired a puck into the open net to seal the 4-2 Oilers win.

The Knights will look to bounce back in a rematch with Connecticut at 12:30 PM EST today. Tune in on hockeytv.com or follow along on twitter @WBSKnightsEHL!

Ice Dogs Down Knights In Fairbanks

The Knights started the second half of their Alaska road trip with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs, winners of 19-straight. Friday night’s action started quickly in favor of the home team, seeing Grant Ledford push a rebound past Christian Stoever for the 1-0 lead (Connor Chilton, Robert Blueger) at 6:04. The Ice Dogs dictated the early tempo, while Josh Benson stood down mid-period pressure from the Knights with a string of solid saves.

Following a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton turnover just past the 12:20 mark, Sam Ruffin recorded his 15th tally of the season, set up by Jack Johnston and Jax Murray. Fairbanks would cap a strong start with a third-straight goal, after Hunter Wendt swatted a puck out of mid-air on a dish from Daniel Haider, fed on by Noah Wilson.

In the second, the Knights first penalty would prove costly. Just over 30 seconds after being assessed a slash, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton couldn’t clear the netfront, where Robert Blueger deflected a piece of Erkka Vanska’s shot past Stoever for the 4-0 lead. Kyle Mayhew was credited the secondary assist on the power play goal.

Between the 9:17 and 10:42 marks, consecutive Fairbanks penalties nullified an Ice Dogs power play and turned four-on-four into an eventual 5-on-3 advantage for the Knights. They didn’t waste the opportunity. Curtis Carlson put his team on the board after refusing to quit on a Matt Kidney rebound. Multiple swats of the puck finally vested Benson to cut the Fairbanks lead to three (Kidney, Tom Farrell).

Before the second penalty’s expiration, Blake Kryska put a loose puck through Benson off a chance created by Farrell and Mike Morrissey. The goal marked Kryksa’s first in a Knights sweater.

Riding the wave of momentum, Mike Morrissey looked to add fuel to the fire when he and Connor Chilton dropped the gloves just shy of the 17:00 marker. Despite getting the better of the exchange of fists, the Knights could not solve Benson again before the close of the middle frame.

The third period reverted to the patterns of the first. Fairbanks resumed its control of play, outshooting the Knights 10-5. Each netminder traded quality saves, but the continual pressure applied to the Knights end of the ice resulted in little quality chances developing for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Down two scores late, the Knights were unable to gain the necessary space to pull Stoever (26 saves) until the game reached its final minute. Not long after he hit the bench, Sam Ruffin fired a puck into the yawning net to put the seal on a 5-2 Fairbanks win (Luke Orysiuk, Mayhew).

The Knights will look to finish their Alaska tour on a high note by snapping the Ice Dogs 20-game winning streak tonight at 11:30 PM EST/ 7:30 PM AKST.

EHL: Knights Fall to Seahawks

The third and final contest of the Knights weekend saw the team travel to Hyannis, Massachusetts to take on the Total Athletics Seahawks. In the teams’ second meeting of the season, the Knights got out to an early start.

Just 6:24 into the opening period, Tyler Watungwa recorded his seventh goal of the season after Bryan Whelan found him in front of Seahawks starter Brandon Collett for the 1-0 lead.

A testy first would set the tone for a chippy day of hockey. Just past the halfway point of the period, both William Case of the Knights and Austin Johnson of the Seahawks were handed game misconducts.

Despite losing a reliable blue-liner early, the Knights were able stay even and even carry play through most of the remainder of the frame. The Seahawks reversed the trend with an explosive final two minutes of the period.

At 18:05 the Seahawks would tie the game off Braxton Walby’s third goal of the season. Walby beat Knights starter Thomas Walker on a rebound following a solid set up from Derric Trudeau and Korey Muzzy.

Just over a minute later, Walby would come right back down the ice and bury a power play rebound to give his team their first lead of the game (Alex Friend, Matthew Stewart).

The middle stanza saw its pace grind to a temporary crawl as the pair of teams combined for 26 minutes of time spent in the box. Two of those penalties would bite the Knights as on a 5-on-3 advantage at 9:56, the Seahawks would add their third goal. John Banovetz would get the last deflection on a puck fired in by Cory Ellerton, assisted by Kolton Smith.

As time ticked away, the Knights found themselves frustrated by Brandon Collett’s savvy play in net (38 saves). Thomas Walker answered with a strong 41 save performance of his own, but the Knights offense never found its rhythm. A scoreless third period that saw the Knights spend the final three and a half minutes killing off a 5:00 major sealed the 3-1 win for the Seahawks.

The Knights will continue their attempt to climb upward in the South Conference playoff seeding with a two-game series against the Connecticut Oilers this weekend. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton is two points out of fourth place in the conference with five regular season games to go.

EHL: Knights Drop Road Contest in Walpole

Photo: EHL.com

On Saturday the Knights took on the Walpole Express for their second head-to-head of the season. The game started slowly, with each side registering single-digit shots through the first. The lone goal of the opening frame came off the stick of Trevor Pray, who buried a rebound past Thomas Walker off the set up Josh Grasson and Bryan Colburn.

In the second, the Express erupted for three goals in just over minutes of play between the 6:00 and 10:36 marks. The first tally came when Pray notched his second goal of the afternoon, when and Josh Grasso came into Knights territory on an odd-man rush set up by Bryan Colburn. Pray bested Walker at 6:03 to build a 2-0 Walpole lead.

Following an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty assessed to the Express following the score, Walpole went right back down the ice on a power play turnover by the Knights. Following a perfect exit pass from Cam Sullivan, Bryan Colburn buried a goal of his own on the shorthanded break, giving his team a 3-0 lead at 6:56. At 10:36 Sullivan wold rotate into the goal column when his shot found its way through traffic to beat Walker. Assists on the tally were credited to Chris Gratton and Colburn.

After regathering themselves in the second half of the second period, the Knights rallied to create some life in the third as they went on to score the next two goals. At 3:45, Jake Nimeh picked up his fifth goal of the year off an assist from Emerson Emery to cut the deficit to 4-1.

The Express buckled down behind the efforts of their goalie Max Flynn, who fended off 11 shots in the period, keeping the Knights comeback at bay for the better portion of the third.

Emery would break through again for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, picking up a power play goal at 17:03, with Austin Weber and Nate Chuckran grabbing assists on the play. With the goal and the earlier assist, Emery has now scored three goals and three assists in his last four games.

Walpole would put any thought of any further rally to bed however when Chris Peters put home the Express’ fifth goal at 18:22 (Tyler Pietrzyk. At the final horn, the Knights would take the 5-2 loss.

The team will look to bounce back against the Total Athletics Seahawks at 2:00 PM EST today. The game will be available on hockeytv.com. Follow @WBSKnightsEHL on Twitter for in-game updates!

 

Weekend Recap: Knights Split Series with Kenai River

As the Knights began their two week trip to Alaska, the team went searching for the success that had eluded them for the majority of January and early February. Their third head-to-head with the Brown Bears marked their first trip to the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex this season. It began well: Knights captain Curtis Carlson buried his 14th goal of the season off assists from Matt Kidney and Anthony Firriolo seven and a half minutes into the contest.

The first period carried on without further scoring despite two power plays for the Brown Bears. Knights starter David Tomeo brought his a-game to the crease as he stopped all shots sent his way in an evenly played first.

It would be Kenai River to come out swinging in the second. Filip Karlsson tied the game at 6:59 with assists from Gil Garcia and Lukas Millen. Gavin Enright hunkered down in net for the Brown Bears, as the ’99 birth year kept the Knights off the board for the better part of the period.

Sutton McDonald would score next for Kenai River, supplying their first lead at 16:43, with Michael Spethmann and Luke Posner credited with the helpers on the score. The Knights would get the goal back less than two minutes later when Tomas Koblizek found Gabe Temple for his fourth marker of the year.

In the third, Mike Gelatt would find the back of the net to retake the lead for the Knights just 2:27 in. Kenai River would redouble their efforts to try to find the equalizer, mounting 16 shots on goal in the period, but David Tomeo didn’t blink.

Through two penalty kills and a chippy finish to game one, the Knights held on to kick off their road trip with a win. Elemental to the victory were the Knights strong penalty kill and Tomeo’s steadiness in net, recording 32 saves on 34 shots.

In Saturday’s rematch, the Knights would again jump out to a quick start. Luke Robinson and Curtis Carlson would find Matt Kidney, who bested former Knights goalie Kevin Lake at 1:01. The Brown Bears wouldn’t rest easy with the deficit, scoring just one minute later when David Kaplan fired a heavy wrist shot by Knights starter David Tomeo to even the score (Markuss Komuls, Cameron McDonald). The Carlson line struck back at 4:02, when Carlson drove in and fired a puck past Lake for the 2-1 lead (Engelkes, Kidney).

An eventful first half of the opening period would be capped off by Joe Rosa’s power play goal at 8:02. After killing off all six power plays in game one, the Knights penalty kill struggled to get back on track Saturday. Former Knight defenseman Markuss Komuls made a nice play to keep the zone before firing the puck to the net. Michael Spethmann pushed a puck off Tomeo’s pads before Joe Rosa put the bouncing puck home to tie the game at two. The goal brought Christian Stoever on in relief of Tomeo.

Early in the second, the Knights forecheck would begin dictating tempo and forcing odd-man rushes. Two and a half minutes into the period, Jack Olmstead handed the puck to Tyrone Bronte who fed a perfect stretch pass to Mike Gelatt to create an odd-man break. Gelatt finished the rush by burying the puck by Lake for the 3-2 lead.

Again the Brown Bears would answer quickly, and again on the power play. Cameron McDonald and Filip Karlsson created a rebound in front of Stoever that Gil Garcia eventually shoveled home to once again even the score.

For the remainder of regulation, the Knights would continually force the issue in the offensive zone and off the rush. Again and again they would be turned away by Lake, who made 24 saves on 25 shots over the final two periods of play, staring down multiple odd-man rushes in the process.

Stoever, for his part, turned away 29 of 30 through the remainder of the contest. As regulation proved inconclusive, 3-on-3 overtime brought with it an abundance of chances on the Soldotna’s Olympic-sized sheet. Both Stoever and Lake traded grade-a saves to force the shootout.

Lake stopped Justin Engelkes and Curtis Carlson in rounds one and two, while Stoever denied his first challenger in Emils Ezitis. Sacha Guillemain squeezed a puck through in round two, forcing the onus on Matt Kidney to try and force a bottom of the third. Lake stopped him to secure the shootout win and the second point.

With the weekend split, the Knights did come away with three out of four points. They’ll look to continue their recent success with a road trip to Fairbanks next weekend.

Jake Fuss Advances to the NAHL

Jake Fuss has been made a permanent member of the Knights NAHL roster this week, as the team prepares for its Alaska road trip. Fuss, the former captain of the Knights EHL team, is fresh off scoring his 100th goal with the Knights organization this past weekend.

“It’s a testament to Jake and the Knights program,” said NAHL head coach Tom Kowal. “I have a front row seat to seeing the EHL team practice each and every day. It gives the players an opportunity to climb the junior hockey ladder. Jake’s a great example of that.”

Fuss and several EHL teammates have been regulars in NAHL practice this year, and both he and forward Tyler Nielsen have played in games at the Tier-II level with the Knights.

“Whenever we get the chance to improve we take it,” said Kowal. “It’s really gratifying, and something we strive for when we can promote someone from within our own organization. We have a great staff here. Josh Fusco does a great job not only putting together a winning hockey team, but also preparing his players for the next level.”

“I feel pretty good,” said Fuss after being told of his promotion. “I was up here a bit last year and this year. From training camp on, a lot of hard work went into getting to this point. It’s good to be up here with the boys.”

Fuss has been a member of the Knights for the past two seasons, playing tier-III in both the NA3AHL last season, and the EHL this year. He’s played in seven NAHL game’s as an affiliated player in that same span.

“The NAHL’s different from the EHL,” said Fuss. “Guys prepare more, it’s a lot faster. I think it’ll take a bit to adjust to the speed, but it’s going to be a good test for where I’m at.”

Fuss will be departing an EHL Knights team that has hit its stride over the past two months, going 10-2-1 since mid-December. He’s confident that they won’t miss a beat.

“They’re in good shape,” he said. “I want to thank them for helping me get to this point. They’re going to be fine without me, they just have to keep working. I think me making it up to the next level is a positive for them. Anthony Starzi and I have both made the jump up this year. It shows that the sky’s the limit if they buckle down and work hard and do the right things. I really want to thank coach Fusco for all the coaching he’s given me over the last two years to help get me to this point.”

“Jake’s a special player,” said Knights EHL head coach Josh Fusco. “All the stats, awards, and recognition he gets-a lot of guys would get cocky-he doesn’t. I’ve coached him for nearly two years now; he’s a very humble person and one of the nicest kids you could ever meet off the ice. He’s brought outstanding leadership as the captain of our team. He motivated our guys to follow our game plan and led by example both in and out of the rink. He’s really stepped up.”

With his full transition to tier-II underway, Fuss is excited to get to work, but focused on his new team, and helping them to achieve their ultimate goal.

“I think the most satisfying thing is just knowing this isn’t just a call up, it’s not just a taste,” he said. “I know I’m up here now as a member of this team. It’ll let me be more comfortable around the guys. My main goal, just like everybody is to make run for a Robertson Cup. I’m focused on doing my best at working hard and helping to get us out of this little bit of a slump we’re in.”

Fuss joins the Knights in their next NAHL action as the team heads to Alaska for the next two weeks. They’ll look to snap a four-game skid that’s seen them go 0-2-2 as they try to maintain 2nd place in the NAHL’s competitive East division.

“Jake does things the right way,” said Kowal. “He adds talent to our line up, but more importantly he brings the right mindset. He’s impossible not to notice. Our organization’s purpose is to advance players to the next level of hockey, and when a player goes out and works his bag off and helps his team every day, that’s impossible for us to ignore. We’re here at the rink, and we’re always looking for standout performers. Jake Fuss proved that to us, and that’s what being a Knights is all about. We’re happy to have him aboard.”

”At the end of the day, that’s what we’re here for,” added Fusco. “Jake came here with a goal. He’s a competitor and hockey player. He wanted reach the top level of this organization.  He stuck to the grindstone and worked hard every day to make it happen. What’s great about it is that he’s still a Knight. He’s still just down the hall. I’ll still see him out at practice, I still get the chance to work with him, and at the end of the day, I couldn’t be happier for Jake. He and I have become pretty close, and to see him succeed puts a smile on my face. He’s a guy I’ll tell stories about for the rest of my life.”

Catch Fuss and the Knights in their next action on Friday, February, 9th against the Kenai River Brown Bears! Puck drop is 11:30 pm EST and 7:30 pm AKST with the game available online at hockeytv.com!

Ethan Crake Commits to Lindenwood University-Belleville

Former Knights forward Ethan Crake announced his commitment to Lindenwood University-Belleville over the weekend. The native of West Pittston, PA spent the 2016-17season with the Knights in the NA3AHL. He recorded four goals and 9 assists in 33 games.

“I was just some kid off the street,” joked Crake. “Coach Fusco brought me on and helped develop me pretty well. Our team was a great mix of having fun but also being able to take the game seriously.”

The 1998 birth year will join Lindenwood University-Belleville in Lindenwood, Illinois next season. The Lynx are headed by former NHL goalie Lindsay Middlebrook. After a few successful seasons in ACHA division II, Belleville made the transition to the NAIA level of hockey this season.

“From the second I walked in, I knew it was a welcoming place,” said Crake of his visit to the university. “It’s a nice facility, right in Illinois, a cool small school. The coaching staff was easy-going and seemed easy to talk to. The team was really cool, and really came across as a great group of guys.”

“I’m a gritty player,” said Crake of his skillset. “I’m play a grimey game. I think that will transition to the ice and off of it. It’s something I think won’t always show up on the scoresheet, but then sometimes it will. That’s what I’ll bring to their team.”

Crake’s former coach, Josh Fusco, was happy to hear of his former player’s commitment.

“As a coach it’s always great seeing a player you had move onto the next stage in their careers and lives,” he said. “I’m very happy to see Ethan pursuing his dreams and having success. I wish him all the best and good luck in his future.”

“I want to thank my parents, first and foremost,” said Crake. “But I wanted to especially thank coach Fusco. He was a great coach to play for and he even had me in this past summer, helping me in the weight room, keeping me ready to keep playing hockey.”

The Knights congratulate Ethan on his commitment and look forward to rooting him on as he continues on with his career!
