He leads the Flames with nine goals and eight assists, for 17 points in 14 games. That puts him among the league’s leading scorers, sitting in eighth place in the PJHL.

Brandon Inwood and Dale Howell each had a goal and an assist, MacLean Hewitt scored, and Travis Oddy and Joe Olson each had two assists.

On Thursday, the Flames lost 5-2 to the Richmond Sockeyes.
