Newly acquired Jakov Novak didn’t take long to prove to the Mooseheads management they made the right decision claiming him off waivers on Monday. It still doesn’t mean he will make the final roster but he certainly made a good case in the first of 3 intrasquad games this evening at Cole Harbour Place. The Riverside, Ontario native had two goals in a losing cause as his Team Green went down 3-4 to Team Red on Wednesday.
Barrett Dachyshyn, who was recently invited to camp, got Red on the board late in the 1st period which gave them a 1-0 lead. Gabriel Vanier, a 2014 7th round draft pick by the Herd, scored 1:06 into the middle frame giving Team Red a 2-0 lead. Returning players Jordan King and Vincent Watt scored the other goals for Red. Overager Kelly Bent scored in the middle frame to close the gap to 2-1.
Camp continues tomorrow morning with team practices while a second intrasquad game will be held at the same time and same place.
