Dryden drops Minnesota on Teddy Bear Toss Night in Hoyt Lakes

HOYT LAKES, Minn. – The Dryden GM Ice Dogs got a pair of goals from Braeden Allkins, including the game-winner, to help them skate past the Minnesota Iron Rangers 6-2 Saturday evening in Superior International Junior Hockey League play at Hoyt Lakes Arena.

With the Iron Rangers hosting a Teddy Bear Toss Night, which were to be donated to the local hospital and fire department for dispersal over the upcoming Christmas holidays, the fans did not have to wait long to send the multitude of stuffed animals onto the ice.

Logan Froberg opened the scoring for the home side just 1:26 into the contest as he notched his team-leading 15th goal of the season bringing the toys from the stands.

Dryden came right back with the equalizer however 27 seconds later on a Braedyn Aubin effort.

Down a man, the GM Ice Dogs’ Allkins struck shorthanded at 11:05 to give the visitors their first lead.

The Iron Rangers answered before the first frame was complete thanks to Austin Boyle’s fifth at 14:11.

Allkins put Dryden back in front for good with the lone marker of the middle stanza as he collected his second of the night and 17th overall at 7:23.

The GM Ice Dogs then put the game away in the third as they tacked on three more off the sticks of Garrett Giertuga, who notched his first SIJHL goal, along additional efforts from Tristan Knott at even strength along with a man-down marker from Nic Noseworthy to round out the scoring.

Patrick Zubick made 30 saves to record the win for Dryden while Sean Angle faced 36 attempts in defeat for Minnesota.
