Briefs Make Debut Katic


Porcupine native Danny Katic is set to make his Ontario Hockey League debut this weekend when the Spirit embark on a three-game northern road trip.

A graduate of the Timmins Majors, of the GNML, Katic (37, 17-23-40, 74) has been playing for the Fort Erie Meteors, of the GOJHL this season, but signed an OHL standard player contract with the Spirit on Wednesday.

He was an eighth round selection of the Spirit in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection.

Katic is a cousin of former New York Islanders defenceman Mark Katic, who is currently playing for Zagreb Medvescak in the KHL and was a member of Canada’s gold medal-winning team at the recent Spengler Cup tournament.

The Spirit are schedule to take on the Colts in Barrie Thursday night, the Wolves in Sudbury Friday night and the Battalion in North Bay Sunday afternoon.

Cubs blank Eskimos 1-0,

close gap on third place

The Schumacher Cubs blanked the Iroquois Falls Eskimos 1-0 in Timmins Midget Hockey League action at the McIntyre Arena Monday night.

Mathieu Guenette’s seventh goal of the season, an unassisted third-period marker, proved to be the difference in the tight-checking contest.

No details were available on the TMHL website as to which of the Cubs two goalies — Dylan Dallaire or Noah Jordan was in net to record the shutout.

With the win, the Cubs (9-4-1-0) pulled to within nine points of the third-place Eskimos (13-11-1-1) in the standings.

The Timmins Flyers (20-4-2-0) continue to hold down first place in the TMHL, while the Kapuskasing Ice Hawks (17-4-2-0) are six points back in second place. The Porcupine Gold Kings (0-26-0-1) hold down last place in the five-team league.
