The Portage Terriers have two of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League's (MJHL) top goalscorers on their lineup.
The Dogs have played nine games so far this season, with a record of 4-3-1-1. Despite this middle-of-the-road start for the team, Gabriel Laflamme and Slade Stanick have hit the ground running, scoring 15 points each. This puts them atop the league's point-getters, with the Virden Oil Capitals' Josh Lehto, who also spent time last year in a Terrier sweater.
The pair of Terriers have both scored their 15 points by finding the back of the net six times while dishing out nine assists, but that's not where the similarities end.
The duo had their highest single-game point total in the same game, coming from the team's home win against the Winnipeg Freeze on October 1st. Stanick and Laflamme came away with four points each, both netting two goals and two assists. Laflamme did recently tally another four-point night, as he scored once while picking up three assists in the team's October 14th victory against the Niverville Nighthawks, also played at Stride Place.
The Terriers will look to climb out of fourth place in the MJHL's East Division, with their next game on Friday, when they host the Winnipeg Freeze once again. They will be joined by newly acquired forward Nick Guberman from the Oil Capitals. The Terriers will give Virden future considerations.
