Thunder to host struggling Wolves

The Borderland Thunder will get first-hand knowledge on how dangerous a wounded animal can be.
The Fort William Wolves (6-7-1-3) limp into town on a three-game losing streak as they get ready to play the Thunder (10-3-2-0) tonight and tomorrow night.
But the slumping Wolves—who are tied for fourth in the Superior International Junior Hockey League with the Nipigon Feathermen Hawks six points behind the first-place Thunder—cannot be taken lightly considering the firepower they bring to the table.
Fort William, just 3-7 in their last 10 games, have scored a league-high 4.94 goals per game, with three players in the SIJHL’s top 10 in points.
Spencer Bodnar (17 goals/19 assists) and Wes Thom (11/22) are 1-2 in the scoring race, with teammate Steve Atkins (14/8) in sixth position.
And Ben Reynolds is tied for second in the league with the Thunder’s A.J. Tucker, among others, with four power play goals so far.
Leading the Thunder attack will be Matt Johnson (nine goals and 21 assists), who sits in third place behind Bodnar and Thom in the points race, while Kyle Prystupa (11/10), the Thunder’s leading goal scorer, is seventh.
Both games begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Ice for Kids Arena.
