And what a triumphant return it was. Roder came back to the 'Ru and his former PJHL team, while playing alongside Rudi Thorsteinson (@rudithor) and Jeremy Hamaguchi (@guchh). He scored 2 goals and added an assist in a comfortable 6-1 for the Richmond Sockeyes. The Allison (@deanallison21), Tait (@danieltait94), Chichak (@shemchichak) line continued their hot streak by combining for 11 points.
It was a lackluster showing for the visiting North Vancouver Wolf Pack - the last team in the conference coming into the game lived up to their current standing as they faced the red hot Sockeyes who are winners of 7 of their last 8.
Perhaps the only disappointment of the night for Richmond came with 2:40 left in the game, as Marcus Houck put the lone goal in for the visitors ruining William Latimer's (@goalieslut) bid for his second shutout in three games. Latimer's numbers as a Sockeye have been remarkable. His miniscule 0.75 GAA and .972 save percentage are signs that the 18-year-old has adapted to his new colours since leaving the Mission City Outlaws.
