Windsor - September 30, 2012 - The Windsor Spitfires continue their 2012-13 Ontario Hockey League season with a home game against the Sudbury Wolves. This afternoon’s game will mark the first time that Derek Schoenmakers will face his former Wolves’ teammates. Game time is 2:00 pm.

Sudbury Wolves

The Wolves have an even record at 2-2-0-0 following last night’s 6-2 trouncing at the hands of the Whalers in Plymouth. Nathan Pancel leads Sudbury with five points in the first four OHL games. Justin Sefton and Samuel Schutt scored for Sudbury yesterday in Plymouth. The Spits acquired Schoenmakers from the Sudbury Wolves on September 4, 2012. In exchange, Sudbury received London's 3rd round pick in 2013 and Sarnia's 2nd round pick in 2016.

Windsor Spitfires

The Spitfires enter the game coming off a shootout loss in Mississauga and huge win Thursday night against the Kitchener Rangers at the WFCU Centre. Windsor’s record now sits at 2-1-0-1 and they sit in second place in the West Division. Montreal Draftee Brady Vail leads the team in scoring with five points in four games. Colorado Avalanche prospect Michael Clarke leads the team with three goals. The Spits have secured five out of a possible six points since losing their home opener to the Owen Sound Attack.

Starting Goalies

It is unclear who will get the start this afternoon for the Wolves. Joel Vienneau has started all previous games for Sudbury and yesterday Taylor Dupuis came into the game in relief. With back-to-back games, look for Dupuis to get the nod. Expect Jaroslav Pavelka to be between the pipes on Sunday for the home team.

Parting thoughts

Spitfires are expected to wear their cream coloured third jerseys this afternoon. Looking ahead to Thanksgiving weekend, the Spits will host the Guelph Storm on Thursday, travel east on the 401 on Friday to take on the London Knights and return home on Monday to host the Sarnia Sting. This afternoon marks the only regular season visit this year by the Sudbury Wolves.
