Mudbugs win third straight game behind another Jordan Fader goal

Blaine, Minnesota –

By: Tyler Moody

The Shreveport Mudbugs may have been the home team today in their matchup against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights, but they were far from home as they played their second game of the NAHL Showcase Tournament in Blaine, Minnesota.

After a 3-1 victory over Minot, fueled by two points from Jordan Fader in game one of the showcase, Fader was at it again on Thursday. He netted his second goal of the showcase to even the scoring at 1-1 deep in the second period against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Jack Jaunich set Fader up for the scoring opportunity with his second assist of the young season.

Just minutes later, the Bugs would strike again on a shot off the stick of Cole Quisenberry. Quisenberry’s first goal of the year was powered by teamwork passing from Brendan Gysbers and Cam Cook as they both landed their first assist.

That is all the scoring the Mudbugs would need because of another outstanding performance in goal by Gustavs Grigals. Grigals, who stopped 13 of 14 shots against Minot, was even better in game two. He put a stop on 21 of 22 attempts from the Knights’ offensive attack. Grigals has been a force for the Bugs so far in the NAHL Showcase. He has stopped an impressive 94% of shots fired his way.

The Bugs will look to lengthen their win streak to four games on Friday night. They’ll hit the ice at 8:30 to take on the Springfield Jr. Blues in their third game of the NAHL Showcase Tournament.
