FRASER, Mich. – On the strength of a five-point game from Louis Boudon and a 19-save shutout from Andrew Kormos, the Metro Jets defeated the Southern Tier Xpress 9-0 Saturday night at Fraser Hockeyland.
Boudon, who earlier in the week signed an NAHL tender agreement with the Northeast Generals, scored three goals and added a pair of assists in the win as the Jets outshot Southern Tier 60-19.
“Everyone got involved tonight,” said Jets coach-GM Justin Quenneville. “That was the key tonight. We wanted everyone to not only contribute, but also play the right way. Once the guys were doing that and moving the puck and supporting each other, the game opened up.”
Mathias Tellstrom and Metro captain Graham Day each posted a goal and two assists, while Cam Schwartz scored twice and Chase Sereno added a goal and an assist. Chas Distelrath notched the other goal and Jason Newel chipped in with two assists.
Every Jets player, save for Kormos and defensemen Jason Recchia, Trevor Momot and Nick Foran, tallied at least one point in the game.
“Everyone was controlling the puck, everyone was contributing well tonight and it felt great to get the two points,” said Sereno.
Next weekend, the Jets play in Battle Creek Friday night against the West Michigan Wolves before coming home Saturday night to host the Toledo Cherokee.
Streaming of the games will be available on www.hockeytv.com.
“We just want to have a good practice week and come back and get another two wins here,” Sereno said. “Keep this train rolling.”
