IceDogs Clinch at Home – Win Bobby Orr Trophy

Alex Friesen, Freddie Hamilton and Ryan Strome scored to lead the Niagara IceDogs to a 3-2 game five win and a 4-1 series victory over the Ottawa 67’s.


Freddie Hamilton feed Strome with a perfect pass from the corner. Strome used the Niagara defender as a screen to beat Petr Mrazek making it 1-0 on the power play. The 67’s responded on a power play of their own just over a minute later. Sean Monahan was sitting at the side of the net and put the rebound into the empty net. With under five minutes to play in the first Freddie Hamilton forced a turnover and walked in all alone beating Mrazek with a back-hand through the five-hole putting the IceDogs back in front 2-1.


Alex Friesen scored the lone goal of the second period when he deflected Dougie Hamilton’s shot from the side boards on the power play giving the IceDogs a two goal cushion.


Jake Cardwell’s fourth of the playoffs cut the lead to 3-2 when he snuck off the point on a 67’s power play. Cardwell was the final piece of a tic-tac-toe play with Mike Cazzola and Tyler Toffoli. Mark Visentin shut the door the rest of the way as the IceDogs went on to capture their first Bobby Orr trophy in franchise history. Watch the highlights
