After a convincing 5-1 victory over an undefeated Sydney Wolf Pack Sunday Night the Melbourne Glaciers sit atop the AJIHL standings. Thanks to the stick of Caleb Butler (10G,2A)who managed consecutive hat-tricks over the weekend and solid net minding from Jack Hayes the Glaciers also find themselves on a hot streak winning their last 3 in a row.

The Sydney Sabres got their first win of the season over the Melbourne Whalers 3-0 Sunday night. Sabres rookie Dale Tilstead sealed his first AJIHL shutout as his team managed to get back to their winning ways.

The Whalers will want to put this week behind them and get back to playing the style of hockey they put on show against the Glaciers opening night.

Despite a 5-1 loss to the Glaciers the Wolf Pack have started the season strong thanks to secondary scoring with goals coming from 9 different players on the team so far.

Over in the west the Home Derby continued as the Sharks fought back from being a goal behind the Perth Pelicans to tie up the game with 40 seconds to go in the game and force a shootout.

Sharks goaltender Mark McCann saved both shots from the Pelicans shooters while Ben Stolze and Tomek Sak scored in the shootout to give the Sharks the 3-2 SO win.

Next weekend the Pelicans will be looking for payback against the Sharks as the Sabres will be looking to get on a roll. Game Details are below.
