By Lethbridge Herald on October 20, 2021.

The Lethbridge U18 Hurricanes remain undefeated in the early going of the Alberta Elite Hockey League season.

The Canes went 2-0 in a weekend homestand Saturday and Sunday at Nicholas Sheran Arena, coming back to beat the Calgary Northstars 4-3 Saturday afternoon in overtime before shutting out the Okotoks Oilers 3-0 Sunday afternoon.

With the wins, the Hurricanes improve to 5-0-1 and into a tie for first place with the Airdrie CFR Bisons, also 5-0-1.

On Sunday, Erick Roest stopped all 34 shots he faced as the Canes shut out the Oilers.

Lethbridge’s Ty Fraser scored in the first and second periods for his fourth and fifth goals of the season and Grady Martin added another with 4:42 left in the third to round out the scoring.

On Saturday, the Hurricanes dialed up a late comeback to erase a 3-1 deficit and post the win as Peyton Twigg scored 4:22 into overtime.

Fraser scored midway through the third and Nathan Verloop netted the equalizer with 3:44 remaining to force overtime.

Fraser gave Lethbridge a 1-0 lead after the first before the Northstars scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 lead.

Fraser added an assist for a two-point night and Caden Heins added two helpers.

Beck Boiteau made 15 saves to earn the win for the Hurricanes.

Heins has four goals and seven points in six games to lead the Hurricanes, while Fraser has five goals and six points in five games.
