Drake Lindsay scored one goal and set up another for the Neepawa Natives as they snapped their 12-game Manitoba Junior Hockey League losing streak with a 2-0 victory over the visiting Waywayseecappo Wolverines on Wednesday night.

Brandonite Tyson Verhelst made 30 saves for his first shutout of the season, while McCreary’s Reigan Buchanan netted the other marker for the Natives (11-35-5). Mitch Wiebe, who is from MacGregor, made 31 saves in net for the Wolverines (14-32-2).

Meanwhile, in The Pas, Brandonite Brayden Cuthbert set up Tanner Lomsnes’ second-period marker that held up as the winner for the Dauphin Kings as they topped the OCN Blizzard 2-1 last night.

Jared Morris also scored for the Sher-Wood Division-leading Kings (32-14-1), winners of 11 straight. Edward Bayer replied for the Blizzard (17-30-4), who have dropped their last six, while Alex Henry made 38 saves.

Nelson performer of month

Brandonite Cody Nelson of the Virden Oil Capitals has been selected the Manitoba Pork Peak Performer of the Month for January.

The 20-year-old forward was singled out for his leadership skills on and off the ice, including volunteering at youth hockey development camps and public speaking at Virden Collegiate. On the ice, Nelson scored three goals and assisted on three more for Virden in the month of January.

"Cody is a true ambassador of the Oil Capitals and the MJHL," stated MJHL commissioner Kim Davis.

In 46 games this season, Nelson has notched nine goals, 19 points and a team-leading 140 penalty minutes.
