The Ice Hawks have gone 9-0. The Flames remain in third place in the Lower Mainland’s Junior B circuit.

Logan Hunter had a goal and an assist for the Flames, and was named the third star of the game. Ryan Wellburn and Josh Gibbons also scored.

The Flames are at Port Moody Arena Saturday night, to take on the Panthers. Their next home game will be next Friday night, when they host the Abbotsford Pilots at 7:30 p.m. at Planet Ice.
