Jack Snider made an impact in his return to the JRC on Thursday (Jun.7).
The 21-year-old forward had four goals and two assists in the Fort Saskatchewan Junior B Rebels 11-10 win over the Edmonton Warriors.
"It was nice to be back with the boys. We came out a little weak at the start but we got some chemistry going again and it was nice," said Snider.
After falling behind 5-0 in the first period, goaltender Jackson Freeman held his ground in the remaining two periods.
"Freeman played unreal. Probably one of the best games I've seen him play all year by far," added Snider.
Ethan Wong (x2), Markus Fouillard (x3), Kaiden Collumb and Ethan Eang all pitched in with goals. On top of Eang's lone tally, the 19-year-old picked up four assists.
The win pushes the Rebels to 6-3 on the season.
They're back at home Saturday (Jun.9) for a date with the Sherwood Park Titans. In two prior meetings this year, the Fort's put up a combined 34 goals against the Titans.
Faceoff at the JRC is 8 p.m.
