Schutz scored at 3:06 of the second period and completed his hattrick with a marker at 10:22 of the third period.

He had an opportunity to score a fourth goal late in the game, but instead passed to Cayden Kraus for his first career BC Hockey League goal that put the Bulldogs up 6–3 for good.

The Bulldogs were back on home ice Saturday night and edged Prince George Spruce Kings 4–3 in overtime. The win was goaltender Brody Claeys’ first of his BCHL career.

Goal scorers for the Bulldogs were Eric Margo, Paul Meyer, Quinn Syrydiuk and Josh Adkins with the winner just 12 seconds into the sudden death overtime period.

Schutz assisted on Syrydiuk’s goal, picking up his sixth point in two games.

Tuesday night the Nanaimo Clippers snapped the Bulldogs’ three-game winning streak by stealing a 3–1 win out of Weyerhaeuser Arena. The Clippers were on the board early in the game when Corey Renwick scored at 2:14 of the first period. Sheldon Rempal scored at 3:27 of the second period to put the Clippers up 2–0. Scott Clark halved the lead with a Bulldogs’ power play marker at 14:48, but Rempal cemented the win with his second of the game at 18:43 of the third period.

ICE CHIPS…The Bulldogs collected and delivered 4,900 pounds of food collected through the BCHL-wide FiveHole for Food challenge to the Bread of Life on the weekend…Friday’s six-goal game was the season high for the Bulldogs so far this year…Schutz’s five-point game nearly doubled his season points total (he’s got seven goals and four assists for 11 points in 10 games).
