The Dryden GM Ice Dogs got two goals from their offensive leader Braeden Allkins to help them take a 7-3 victory over the English River Miners and capture the Bill Salonen Cup.
The Ice Dogs take the best-of-seven final in four straight games. This is Dryden's third SIJHL title in their 16-year history.
Forward Braeden Allkins has been named the CCM Hockey Playoff Most Valuable Player for his efforts in helping lead his club to the Bill Salonen Cup championship.
Allkins was named the recipient of the award following Dryden’s victory.
The 20-year-old was also the SIJHL’s MVP during the course of the regular season. He led all of the league's playoff performers in points with 15 in eight games, notching a league-best eight goals along with seven assists. Allkins etched his name on the score sheet in all eight of the Ice Dogs’ postseason contests. He also supplied two game-winning tallies.
The team will now move on to represent the SIJHL at the Dudley-Hewitt Cup, May 2-6, in Trenton, Ont.
