East Division Week in Review
Game of the week review: The big east division matchup of the week saw the Whitby Fury bus roll into the Cougar Den to take on the Cobourg Cougars, and both teams did not disappoint the crowd in attendance, providing theatrics to the very end. Whitby would have the only tally of the first period when league leading scorer Taylor Best , would capitalize on the powerplay. Nick Neal would add to the Fury lead at 3:03 of the second period. Spencer Holt would hook up with Alex D Oliveria and Stuart King to cut the Whitby lead to one. Minutes later D Oliveria would tie things up with Taylor Gauld and Mark MacCaulay grabbing the helpers. Fury forward Tyler Park would retake the lead at 18:37. Connor Armour would tie things up fifty seconds in the third period, then Whitby would again retake the lead with Greg Milner putting one in the back of the net only minutes later. Things would stay this way until Connor Hogg would tie things up and send it to over time. Alex D Oliveria would top his stellar night off with late overtime heroics when he would pot one at 4:11 of the period. Both sides of the fan base didn’t leave happy but they did not go home unentertained.
Game of the week preview: Whitby Fury @ Trenton Golden Hawks
Their second meeting of the year should see the Fury hoping to exact some revenge against the Golden Hawks. The Fury have turned things around are starting to become more competitive in the tough east division. The veteran Golden Hawks are looking to show that they can compete with the top teams in the east. Should make for a very competitive game.

Rookie Of The Week
Maurizio Colella – The Wellington forward has come in to this season as one of the few rookies in the east division and has bought into his role. And he was rewarded, being called up to the Belleville Bulls of the OHL. Maurizio at 6’1 and 180lbs brings a physical element to the Wellington Dukes, and is thriving under HC Marty Abrams.
