HEAT DEFEAT BULLDOGS 5-1 TO REMAIN IN TOP SPOT

Abbotsford, BC – The Abbotsford Heat defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs 5-1 on Friday in front of 5,145 fans at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC).

The Heat scored a season-high four power play goals and out-shot the Bulldogs 28-16. Ben Walter produced a goal and an assist and now stands as the all-time franchise leader in scoring with 74 points in 93 games as a Heat player.

The Heat opened the scoring on a five-on-three power play at 6:50 of the first period with Ben Street’s fifth goal of the season. The goal was set up by Sven Baertschi and Paul Byron. Street, a Coquitlam native, is now tied for the Heat team lead with 17 points.

Roman Horak ended a nine-game goal drought at 8:12 of the second period. Ben Walter and T.J. Brodie assisted. Horak’s eighth goal of the season places him two goals behind the AHL leader.
