Cats all star goalie AJ Whiffen suffered what has been described as a groin/hamstring injury late in the Sunday afternoon's game against the visiting Gander Flyers.
Following the game the always-focused young net-minder was in good spirits walking with no apparent problems. He was very positive in his comments after the game, that the injury was not serious and that he will be back for the next Cataracts scheduled games,( which are two home games against the visiting Clarenville Caribous at the "Joe" in two weekend's time).
All teams have next weekend off. [Full Story]
The Cats had a very productive weekend of hockey on the road and at home.
With a full line-up for the first time this season, the Cataracts definitely showed some new-found scoring punch, pumping 15 goals into the Flyers net over the two game "Home and Home" set against Gander.
Steve Yetman was the big goal-scoring leader,potting two goals on Saturday and netting a 'hat-trick' on Sunday. Late returnee and perennial speedster Andrew Brennan's presence was immediately on show. Last year's scoring champion potted a nifty breakaway goal in Saturday night's contest. [Full Story]
