Cole Tymkin’s long-awaited debut in a Caledonia Corvairs uniform finally arrived. And he did not disappoint.
During a four game in six day stretch, the former London Knights forward racked up 10 points, to help lead the Corvairs to three wins.
After earning a goal and two assists in his debut, a 10-0 win over the Buffalo Regals on January 29, he had one assist in the Corvairs’ 5-2 win over the St. Catharines Falcons.
In that game, Tyler Burnie led the way with two goals, while Ryan Wells, Ryan Littlejohn, and Colt Corpse each netted one.
Xavier Drummond and Nick Volpatti responded for the Falcons.
The next night, Tymkin and the Corvairs returned home and cruised to a 13-2 win over the Welland Jr. Canadians.
Tymkin led all scorers with five assists, while Corpse netted a hat trick and Burnie added four assists. Kessler Skye, Marino Moro,and Littlejohn each scored twice, while Wells, Matthew Bridgewater, Nick Giunta, and Dylan D’Agostino pitched in with a goal apiece.
Dawson Abrahams and Joshua Shears responded for the Jr. Canadians.
On Monday, Tymkin, Anthony Aguano and Danyk Druin scored in a rare loss, a 5-3 decision on the road at the hands of the Hamilton Kilty B’s Junior Hockey Club.
Ellis Rickwood, Matt Baumann, Nolan Underwood, Jacob McEachern, and Andrew Lukezic all scored for the Kilty’s.
With only six games remaining in the regular season, the Corvairs are 39-4-0-1, and hold a two point lead on the London Nationals for top spot in the entire Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League.
Saturday they host the Pelham Panthers at 7:30pm.
