Grizzlys cruise past Canucks

The host Olds Grizzlys raced out to an early 3-0 lead and cruised past the Calgary Canucks 7-2 in an AJHL Sunday afternoon contest.

OLDS — The host Olds Grizzlys raced out to an early 3-0 lead and cruised past the Calgary Canucks 7-2 in an AJHL Sunday afternoon contest.

Damien Kulynych, JC Heck and Matt Hanger scored in the first 11 minutes and the Grizzlys went on to get a pair goals from Brandon Clowes and additional markers from Dylan Hubbs and Spencer Dorowicz before 381 fans at the Sportsplex.

Replying for the Canucks were Ben Thomas and Mathew Plesa.

Winning netminder Ethan Jemieff stopped 25 shots. Colin Cooper blocked 44 for the visitors.

The Grizzlys’ triumph helped take the sting out of Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the host Okotoks Oilers.

Heck and Chris Stachiw scored in a losing cause, with Chris Collins, Cody Michelle, Red Deer product Connor Hartley — with the eventual winner — Scott Bolland and Mitch Collett getting the Okotoks goals.

Jared D’Amico made 34 saves for the Oilers. Talor Joseph stopped 27 shots for the Grizzlys, who host the Brooks Bandits at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Olds will also be home to the Bonnyville Pontiacs and Oilers Thursday and Friday.
