Lakers Look To Rebound As New Year Approaches
In the first two months of the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey season, the Lakers secured 5 wins. That total matched their output from all of last season.
That growth unfortunately, all came undone in recent months for the Lakers, as the team has not won a game since October 29, a span of 15 games, and 15 losses.
“Our goal is to make the playoffs, I think it’s realistic, but we’re really young. We’re building something, but it will take time,” said Wallaceburg head coach Ken Shine in a preseason interview with CKSN.
Now, with 11 games remaining in their schedule, and a 7-point gap to make up, the Lakers look as though they’ll miss the playoffs again this season.
In fact, Wallaceburg has finished last each season, missing the playoffs, since 2010-2011 when the team finished first overall in the Great Lakes standings.
Currently the Lakers sit with a 2-21-0-3 record.
Wallaceburg will play Blenheim Sunday, December 28, before hosting Lakeshore Monday, December 29, and then have a week long break before they travel to play the first place Essex 73s January 6.
