The Saginaw Spirit (8-6-1-0) dropped a 5-2 decision to the Sudbury Wolves at the Dow Event Center Saturday night.
The Wolves scored three quick goals for an early 3-0 lead, while Spirit forward Camaryn Baber (1) managed to get the Spirit on the board with his first goal of the season with assists from Jake Goldowski and Josh Bloom to cut the Sudbury lead to 3-1 at 10:05 of the first period, but the Wolves answered with another goal to take a 4-1 lead into the first intermission.
The Spirit cut the Sudbury lead to 2-goals when Reilly Webb (1) scored his first of the season from Cole Perfetti and Ethan Cardwell to cut the Sudbury lead to 4-2 at 2:45 of the third, but Sudbury answered with a shorthanded goal to put the game out of reach.
Saginaw was playing without Nicholas Porco and Ian Lemieux who were healthy scratches after being traded to the Barrie Colts in exchange for third year forward Dalton Duhart, along with five draft picks.
The Spirit will receive a second round pick (OSH) in 2020, a second round pick (KGN) in 2024, a third round pick (SSM) in 2021, a third round pick (OS) in 2022, and a fifth round pick (BAR) in 2023.
Spirit GM Dave Drinkill can use these picks to make some more moves before the trade deadline.
Duhart, a native of Grand Blanc, MI is expected to dress this afternoon when Saginaw looks to get back on track, welcoming the Soo Greyhounds for a 5:30 pm face off at the Dow Event Center.
