Fiedler nets four for Devils
Max Fiedler tallied four times over the last 40 minutes of play, leading the North Delta Devils to a 6-3 win over the Aldergrove Kodiaks Wednesday night in Langley.
The 19 year-old from Coquitlam upped his goal total to nine since he joined the team early last month. He now has 17 points in eight games with the Devils.
The Kodiaks led 1-0 after one period of the Pacific Junior Hockey League game, getting a goal from former Devil an dsurrey native Stefan Gonzales.
Fielder scored twice in the first six minutes of the second period, both goals assisted by Nicholas Lee and Matthew Painchaud, to give North Delta a 2-1 lead.
The Kodiaks tied the game before the second intermission, but Levi De Waal scored a go-ahead goal and Fielder netted the eventual winner on a power play. Aldergrove got one goal back, before Fielder added an insurance goal and Blake Gorrill scored into an empty net with 38 seconds to play.
Painchaud finished the game with four assists, while Benjamin Vikich and Tanner Lenting had two helpers each.
Tyler Read got the win in the North Delta goal, making 36 saves as the Devils were outshot 39-35.
Now at 19-6-3-1 (won-loss-overtime loss-tied), the Devils are in third place in the Tom Shaw conference, eight points up on the fifth-place Grandview Steelers, who had six games to play. The top four teams will advance to the playoffs.
The Devils will visit the Port Moody Panthers Saturday night. The Panthers are in the basement of the Harold Brittain Conference with just five wins in 35 games.
