Kirkland Lake rolls over Blind River

KIRKLAND LAKE – The Kirkland Lake Gold Miners got three points apiece from Steven Babin, Dylan Rosen and Luc Soares as they rolled over the Blind River Beavers 9-0 Friday night in Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League action at the Joe Mavrinac Community Complex.

Kirkland Lake got all the offensive production they would need in the opening frame getting tallies Ryan Swain at 4:54 and Rosen, who connected on the power play, 11 minutes later.

The defending NOJHL champs added to their lead in the middle session adding markers from Tyler Romain, Joel Fortin and Babin to go up 5-0 after two periods of play.

They then put the contest away in the final stanza tacking on tallies by Soares, Mick Nisbet, Ethan Strong and Rosen to complete the romp.

Devon Debastos made 13 saves to register his league-leading second shutout of the young campaign.

Nick Kazmierczak faced 39 shots in a losing cause for Blind River.
