TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – NORTH BAY TRAPPERS
The North Bay Trappers have their second GNML regular-season title in as
many years, using the league’s best offence, and a 9-1 run in their final
10 games, to best the TELUS Cup host Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves by one
point. GNML scoring champion Nick Davis was one of three Trappers to hit
the 50-point mark (he had 56), with Jacob Peterson-Galema (53) and Cole
Craft (50) right behind him in second and third, respectively. The Trappers
also topped the league on the defensive side, helped by the excellent play
of netminder Joel Rainville. He finished the season with four shutouts and
posted a 2.44 goals-against average.
