April 7th, 2021 @ 12:21 am

BROOKS, AB (April 6, 2021) - The Brooks Bandits wrapped up their cohort with the Calgary Canucks with another strong home performance, as five different goal scorers found the back of the net in a 5-2 home win on Tuesday at the Centennial Regional Arena.

Goaltender Jared Whale made 18 saves for the win.

The Bandits marked the 3 year anniversary of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy with a moment of silence prior to puck drop.

Highlights presented by Days Inn & Suites Brooks:

Forward Nic DeGraves got Brooks on the board first, as he one-timed a Thomas Cusson behind the net pass 6:13 into the game to make it 1-0. Cusson was then robbed on a pad save from Canucks starter Adam Dmyterko.

The Bandits doubled their lead to 2-0 as forward Brendan Mairs got a rebound off an Ethan Lund (Niagara) point shot at 15:56. Shots were 19-7 Bandits in the frame.

Brooks dominated the 2nd period, and increased their lead to 3-0 on the powerplay as Brayden Krieger (Bowling Green) one-timed a Chris Pappas (St. Lawrence) pass from the bottom of the right circle at the 11:38 mark of the 2nd. 28 seconds later, defenceman Tim Rego (Cornell) finished off a crisp right circle pass from Lund to make it 4-0. The Bandits got another powerplay, and defenceman Corson Ceulemans (Wisconsin) wired a high slot wrist shot off the post and in to make it 5-0 with under 7 minutes to play in the 2nd. Shots were 23-5 Bandits in the frame.

Calgary got two of the goals back in the 3rd, as Ben Kotylak redirected a point shot 63 seconds in the period to make it 5-1, followed by a Matthew Brunton right circle wrist shot at 7:32 that cut the lead to 5-2. That would be as close as Calgary would get. Final shots were 53-20 Brooks.

Honda Magic Coach's Recap:

The Bandits will wait for the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) to announce the next cohort and schedule.
