Casselman extends streak
Ryan Casselman’s goal 8:01 into the first period proved to be the game-winner and also extended his Tod Division season-high consecutive-game point streak to 20 as the Napanee Raiders blanked the Gananoque Islanders 6-0 in a Provincial Junior Hockey League game Tuesday night in Napanee.
Casselman added an assist in the second period to up his season total to 114 points (46 goals, 68 assists).
During his 20-game point streak, which started on Nov. 19, Casselman has collected 63 points.
Team-wise, the win kept the club on pace to set a new local junior C single-season points record. With a 35-2-0-1 record and two games left, the Raiders have 71 points, three shy of the record held by the 201314 Picton Pirates and the 2008-09 Raiders.
Josh Murphy scored twice for Napanee, with Cullen Hinds, Riley Steeves and Jacob Murphy netting one goal apiece.
