CALGARY — The Calgary Canucks spotted the Olds Grizzlys a two-goal lead, then stormed back for a 5-2 Alberta Junior Hockey League win on Wednesday before 327 fans at the Max Bell Centre.

Goals from Lucas Grundy and Bart Moran staked the Grizzlys to a 2-0 lead after one period, but the Canucks struck for two second-period markers and added three more in the final frame.

Kirby Ruzesky and Jordan Kancsal each tallied twice for the winners, who got a single from Gui Glasspoole. Colin Cooper turned aside 41 shots for the Canucks and Grizzlys netminder Ethan Jemieff made 24 saves.

Calgary, two-for-nine one the power play, improved to 2-3-1, while Olds – zero-for-10 with a man advantage – dropped to 1-4-0 and into last place in the South Division.

The Grizzlys are on the road on Friday and Saturday versus the Bonnyville Pontiacs and Lloydminster Bobcats, then return home to face the Camrose Kodiaks on Monday at 7:30 p.m.
